We were entertaining out of town guests. Our whale watching tour was lots of fun with a friendly and informative crew. We saw dolphins and grey whales.

Fun but not thrilling

Though I know you can not control if we see whales, it is the whales (not dolphins or sea lions) we pay to see. Otherwise, everyone was friendly and informative.

Love the whale watching boat. Staff is awesome and very informative. Great thing to do with a group of friends or on a date. Last time we went we saw whales this time was only dolphins. But even if you don't see the whales it is still a great experience.

Because of the half price Tuesdays, a friend and I got a group together to enjoy a couole hours on the water. The crew was great! Very interactive with the passengers. If you want to go whale watching, do it! Don't put it off. Have fun!

No whales seen on our trip

We did not see any whales on our trip, but we were given vouchers to use on any return trip. We are from Indiana, but plan on going out to California again in the next couple of years. They said that the vouchers were good forever, so we plan to use them later. Seas were pretty choppy that day. Crew seemed helpful. would recommend this to friends

Excellent captains who made every effort to find whales and gave us a ticket to use in future because no whales were sited.

Always a great time

I've been on 1/2 day and 3/4 day fishing trips a few times with Dana Wharf Sportfishing, and I've always had a great time. The crew is attentive and helpful, and all the details are always taken care of. I highly recommend Dana Wharf Sportfishing, and look forward to my next outing on one of their boats.

I took my sister on a tour of some Southern California beaches. We hung out all day in Laguna Beach and then headed over to the whale watching tour. There was plenty of room for everyone to find a seat and it was so beautiful right before sunset. The captain of the ship recommended the best restaurant for afterwards too.

Awesome free second trip
Tue, Mar 23, 10   10:00 AM fiskemic Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Saw no whales but a few dolphin on our first trip, so we got a "whale check" to come back for free. Went the next day and the group before us did not see a whale, so we were worried but ended up having a fantastic sighting of 2 large gray whales. We followed them for a while and got some great pictures and videos, but the dolphin we found on the way back were almost better! They found a group of very active, playful dolphins, around 300-400 of them, and they swam and jumped alongside us for a long time, very close to the boat! We originally went on 1/2 price Tuesdays, so we got 2 great boat rides for the price of one. It was a really fun trip.

There was no fish to be found, but it was still fun. I'll do it again in the summer.

Nice to have tickets in advance

It was nice to have the tickets in advance. The website was easy and fast to use. When we arrived at our location we still had to wait in a long line to turn our tickets in to the person at the counter in order to get the Whale Watching tickets. I would like to see that step eliminated.

Whales, Dolphins, and Seals...Oh My!
Wed, Mar 17, 10   12:00 PM nickoris Male 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Went out on the water and not 15 minutes later were already on the tail of two California Gray Whales. The captain and the man on deck giving information were extremely helpful. We wee always on top of the whales. We managed to find seals and dolphins along the way as well. Drinks were reasonably priced too. All in all, a great experience. Well worth the time and money.
