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.

Nice Boat and Pleasant Trip
Tue, Feb 2  3:00 PM Male 50-59 Local Group of Friends
 
Attended: Catamaran Adventure Cruises
 
I have gone whale watching many places around the world. This was one of the most comfortable boats I've been on. Very nice and fast compared with boats of the same size. Also, it's a catamaran, so it was a smooth ride. We saw two gray whales and a handful of common dolphins on a pleasant 2 hour trip.

Attended: 1/2 Priced Tuesday Whale and Dolphin Watching Tour
 
We were Lucky with the weather (sunny and almost no Wind) and with three grey whales, one of which was breaching 20 times and we had three dolphins swimming alongside our boat for while. It was a great experience for all of us. We highly recommend this tour.
