Great trip
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Fri, Jun 4, 10   5:00 PM jsmith559 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I wasn't sure about going out at 5:00 pm but it was great. We saw hundreds of common dolphins that like racing the boat and two fin whales. I grew up in California and never went on a whale watching boat. I wish I had done it a long time ago.

Awesome

The tour started right on time. The boat was clean. The Captain was great as was his first mate. We saw hundreds of dolphins - wow! A couple of sea lions and a rare hump back whale. The Captain has an excellent eye and feel for the whale was able to track and find him as well as keep him in our sites for quite some time. He even stayed out a bit longer because this whale was just hanging out. It was great. They had snacks and beverages available. It couldn't have been any better. The first mate filled us in on interesting details about the whales they see and dolphin in the area. I would highly reommend this tour - even if you get stunked it will be a pleasant journey and memory.

Nice trip

It was very overcast with two seals following us at every stopr we made. The weather and the seals made for poor fishing, but just getting out with your friends and having a good time is a great way to go. The crew and captain were great. Had a great time.

Good Day out but FISH WHERE ARE YOU?
Sat, May 1, 10   10:00 AM Bradhanna Male 20-29 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
unfortunately for us the water temp's had dropped so the fish were very scarce! there were still a few fish about and i got some nice big bites.. hopefully next time i return (which will be soon) i will be able to land a few fish!! the Deckhands were good help, and got as excited as the anglers!! and not to mention the food onboard was great too!! would be rather surprised if anyone was disappointed in this!

Although we didn't see any whales or dolphins, our trip was fun and relaxing. We recieved a ticket to come back again (with no expiration date!) :) The workers on the boat were very pleasant and welcoming! Thank you very much, Holly

Worth the Trip
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)
Tue, Apr 20, 10   12:00 PM JSticher Female 50-59 Combination Group of Friends
Took the Whale Watching trip at the noon hour in late April, and experienced a nice overview of the Dana Point Harbor and its origin. Seas were not very rough and the wind was pleasant, although does require a jacket and maybe hat. Did not see whales, but located a large pod of dolphins and also sea lions resting on a large rock. Hard to hear the captain if you are not at the front of the boat, so highly recomend standing toward the captain's location. Would go again during a more advantageous timing for actual sighting of the whales.

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
Mon, Apr 5, 10   2:00 PM pam12345 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
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

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.
