Inexpensive but no Whale sighted!

The staffs were nice and the ship came on time. It was not very crowded which was nice but we didn't get to see any dolphines are whales. They gave us back our tickets to book another date without extra charge.

In summary, although we didn't see any sightings, we did get our tickets back and plus it was a free harbor cruise.

My husband and I wanted to take an easy day trip and decided on whale watching. The boat was comfortable, the crew was pleasant, the weather perfect, and we tracked a mother and baby whale. We had an additional treat of watching a large pod of dolphins perform their acrobatics near the boat. It was well worth the trip and will be a memorable experience.

We enjoyed our trip very much. The skipper was quite informive, discribing the differant sea life that we encountered along the way, and also, some that normally are in our coatal waters but did not appear. Unfortunately, the Whales were among those that did not appear. We will use Dana Point' Wharf's Whale Watching Tour again; maybe we will have better luck next time.

Soothing and invigorating

Our 2 hour trip was an extremely pleasant, with invigorating sea air and watching the ocean with plentiful sea life.

Although no whales were seen, we did see plenty of sea lions and dolphins. I was very impressed by the curteous crew and for giving us an opportunity to return so that we may yet get to see whales.

The crew was very friendly. The boat was large and clean with plenty of places to sit and view the water.

I would have hoped for a little more information on the marine life via the man on the PA but the relative quiet was nice too.

If the boat were smaller, I think it would have been possible to get a little closer to the whales and not disturb them.

It was a nice couple hours on the water and the bloody mary was great.
