Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching was started in 1958 by Don Hansen, running several sportfishing boats off the San Clemente Pier. He Moved the operation to Dana Point Harbor when it opened in 1971, this was where the West Coast Whale Watching industry originated. Today Dana Wharf sits in the heart of a busy, flourishing harbor and continues to be owned and operated by the Hansen family.

Dana Wharf Whale Watching began in 1971 and was the first whale watching company in Orange County.  We are the premier year-round whale watching facility in Southern California. We interact with thousands of whales  during the Grey whale migration in the winter and Blue whales in the summer. In addition to whales, thousands of dolphins, sea lions, sea faring birds and even sharks are found in our waters,  we always have plenty of wildlife to see. Our fleet of Whale Watching vessels include that largest vessel on the West Coast  the 95 foot Dana Pride the favorite with families and school groups. Our Luxury catamaran the OCEAN ADVENTURE the first of its kind in Orange County, is a power Catamaran with a very large viewing deck instead of a net for optimal viewing without getting wet!

Dana Wharf also has a fleet of Sportfishing boats specializing in local coastal fishing such as the 9 hour 3/4 day trips and the very popular schedule of 5 hour 1/2 day fishing trips.

Seasonal Catches include Calico Bass, Sand Bass, Barracuda, Bonito, Halibut, Rock Fish, Yellowtail and more.

we had an amazing time. Staff was friendly and patient from the time we got there and we seemed confused about boarding and parking, they went out of their way to help us and on board the captain extremely nice, well informed about the marine as was the rest of the staff on board too. Repeat customer who were on this boat on this day had nothing but good things to say. We will definitely go with this whale watching service again.
