Awesome time!

The captain was very informative. We saw a bunch of whales and dolphins, too. Captain was even familiar with the whales (he had named them) and, for example, drove the boat out to the whale that tends to show it's tail. Had a great time. Also loved that the boat only had 25 people, so it wasn't super crowded. I'd recommend it to locals or tourists!

Dana Wharf is amazing! The captains are so informative. The crew is so friendly. And the whales of Southern California are incredible. Blue whales and dolphins this trip!

Highlight of our vacation!

We've been out with this crew twice. Both times were wonderful! On the last trip we saw hundreds of dolphins. Some were riding the bow and I literally got splashed from one dolphin's spray. Three years later my kids still love telling this story. Our most recent trip was very windy and choppy, but completely worth the rough ride as we saw a blue whale and her calf. The captain and crew were all so knowledgeable and friendly (particularly Steve was right on the bow with us and just as excited). We are planning to make this a yearly excursion.

Very Enjoyable

The boat was clean and nice. The boat driver was very knowledgeable. The website wasn't clear that it was in between whale seasons. They did however give our tickets back for another trip because we didn't see any whales or dolphins. I would recommend this company.

Took the kids out whale watching, and everyone enjoyed it. Saw lots of common dolphins, a few sea lions, and 2 whales who were trying to stay hidden. Food and cocktails were reasonably priced.

Whale and dolphin watch

The whale watch trip was incredible. The catamaran was the perfect size boat and was so comfortable. Our captain knew exactly where to take us and we saw whales and a huge pod of dolphins! It was a great trip and I am definitely going again.

Wonderful, informative cruise. Watching the blue whales was well worth the cost of the cruise. The Captain's running comnmentary on the lives and activities of the blue whales made the whales even more impressive. Would take the cruise again anytime.

A great trip

It was a great trip! Plenty to see. Blue whales, hammerhead sharks, sunfish, pelicans and finn whales. This 2 hour trip is the perfect amount of time to see everything. Just 4 miles off the coast. The boat was very roomy and comfortable. Defineltly woth every dime!
