It was a great experience for the whole family. A beautiful ride, a talented crew, not overly crowded, and we saw lots of whales. I highly recommend.

I have been out on this trip many times, and I will go again many more.

On August 25th, we were entertained by a Blue Whale for more than half an hour.

I would take this cruise every day if I could...

This was great, the catamaran was great, not over crowded. Enough room to move around and feel like you are not in a sardine can.

Can't wait to see other whales migrating up to Alaska, etc.

WE didn't seen any whales but still had a good time. We really enjoyed all the dolphins. We took lots of pictures and many of the dolphins turned out great.

Would certainly recommend this trip to friends.

Having the half price certalnly helped with out large group.

Thank you so much.

Also my son in law took his son (11) on the sportfishing cruise. They both had a wonderful time. Our grand son had a 3 foot barracuda up to the boat and the staff helping him trying to hook the barracuda, broke the line instead. Another story of the one who got away!

Wow! What a great Whale Watching adventure and such a great price!!!! The boat was very spacious ad comfortable with lots of viewing room. The captain was great and took us to see Blue Whales (a mother and calf). What an experience! We also stopped to watch dolphins and seals along the way. I can't think of a better way to spend an afternoon.

A thoroughly enjoyable adventure!

I needed an activity for 2 grandsons, ages 11 & 13 and myself; something that didn't entail tramping around in the summer heat. I googled Dana Point not knowing what I might find. The whale watching seemed like a great idea, and so it turned out to be. All 3 of us loved it, and were thrilled at seeing the dolphins, and of course the Blue whale.

I'd like to take the trip again, to see if I can improve my camera skills on a fast moving catamaran. A thumbs up on this activity!!!

Experience of a lifetime

My 12 year old son and I went out at 11:00 a.m. on 9/5/09. We would have enjoyed our excursion even if we had not seen a single whale. The crew was friendly and did a great job explaining the marine life that is found in that area. The boat was perfect with plenty of room to move around. The sandwiches that we purchased from the galley were outstanding. To top it off, not only did we see 2 huge blue whales up close but the crew put us in the middle of a pod of 800 to 1000 dolphin. I want to thank everyone at the Dana Wharf for an experience of a lifetime.
