Great Experience at Dana Whart
Sun, Aug 10  2:00 PM LynnLaskoe Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Loved everything about this whale watching adventure. The captain and crew do a great job of both educating and entertaining as you sail about the area. We were fortunate enough to see a Blue Whale- the rarest to see and biggest on earth! The ship was clean, lots of room to view and great snack/drink service on board. Highly recommend this adventure!

Best day of my Vacation

My daughter and I took this sea jaunt to see dolphins. The ride was very relaxing, even without the addition of the dolphins and sea-lions , this was a very enjoyable tour for me. I would recommend it to any of my friends visiting San Clemente/ San Diego area.

Saw a blue whale from a distance and a huge group (not sure what technical term is) of dolphins. Crew seemed to know exactly where to head to see this wildlife.

Overall a pleasant experience
Sun, Aug 3  4:00 PM jeshraj Male 30-39 Local Family With Children
The catamaran was clean and comfortable. The trip departed on time. There was not a big crowd that day so everyone got a good viewing spot on the deck. We saw two blue whales that day but the first sighting did not happen until almost an hour in to the trip. The first whale we saw was diving (v/s travelling) so it used to go underwater for quite some time. However, the captain of the boat was very knowledgeable and anticipated the whale's moves to perfection. Three dives later (approx 8 minutes per dive), he had maneuvered the boat to a perfect position that when the whale surfaced, we were quiet close to it and got an awesome view of the magnificent animal. The ticket price ($45) is slightly expensive than the others but do look online for discount coupons.

My family had a great time. We had an opportunity to see both a whale and a pod of dolphins. My daughter wanted to do it again the next say. I highly recommend this activity.

good experience

The twilight fishing trip was overall a good experience. The staff is friendly and helpful. However for family with small children the boat is smaller than expected. I am willing to pay more per person if we can go on bigger boat with some cabin seating. More description and pictures of the boat provided on the website would be helpful.

It was well organized, the boat was safe and well kept. The crew was polite and well informed. We did not get to see the whales but we saw loads of dolphins. Enjoyed the 2 hours we spent on the boat.

Great boat, Great crew
Fri, Aug 1  10:00 AM Chocolate4al Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
Lovely catamaran with easy access for handicapped like me. Crew member jumped to help me get on and off and also while I was on the boat to walk around. Very good descriptions over the intercom of what we were seeing and about local sea life. We didn't see any whales but lots of dolphins and of course the seals sitting on the bouy. Nice little cafe on board with great hot dogs, grilled cheese, lots of sodas and other drinks, beer to enjoy. Prices not bad for these either. Very nice 2 hours.

Took my daughter on a half and as always ,,, had a gear time! Captain and his staff are always there to help when you need it! My goal is to teach my daughter so that when she is ready we can go out on a tuna trip. Dana Wharfs makes it easy!

The Twilight Fishing Trip at Dana Wharf Sportfishing was exactly what we expected as first time sportfisherpeople. We had fun, saw some beautiful scenery and even caught some fish! The Captain of the boat did a great job finding a rewarding place to fish and the crew was extremely helpful! Thanks for the great experience!
