Hundreds and hundreds of dolphins all around the boat. You could almost reach out and touch them. Then we followed a grey whale for almost an hour as it teased us from all directions. An absolutely breathtaking experience!

We only saw one whale (a gray whale), but you really only need one. It was absolutely breathtaking and magical to witness this animal on its southern migration.

We are so happy you got to see a whale on your trip! We should be seeing a lot more on their northern migration. Thanks for the great review and hopefully we will see you again soon!

Amazing day and spectacular views

We were lucky enough to spot a Humpback Whale. No grey whales yet but seeing this one was a once in a lifetime opportunity. The captain and mate were so full of stories and energy, they made it so much fun. We followed dolphin pods and got a great view of the sea lions too.

Had a great time. we saw lots of dolphins, and sea lions, and we thought that was sufficient to meet their guarantee, however because we didn't see whales, they gave us a pass for a future ride. Staff was great adn knowledgeable, and the boat was clean.

A whale watching trip with Dana Wharf is always wonderful. Friendly, professional, helpful staff and always a great experience, regardless of what we see - or don't. We have been many times over many years. We recently went with another firm as Dana Wharf had no availability and it was a huge disappointment - we barely left the coastline.

I couldn't recommend Dana Wharf more highly.

The boat was large & clean! I usually get sea sick but this was a very smooth ride, even when moving at higher speeds. Polite staff - but they mostly kept to themselves. Announcements were continually made as to where & what to look for. They were able to direct the boat to areas with MANY dolphins, & even though the time of the trip was running out, they carefully followed a young whale so we could all see it before heading back. I got many pictures of dolphins and once home & viewing pics on the computer - I believe I got a whale pic too!

Beautiful vistas, knowledgeable crew

Perhaps random luck, but it was a picture perfect, 70 degree day with calm seas. The whales apparently had other things to do, but we were quite happy to enjoy the common dolphins and the seals.

Although we didn't see whales, we did see a Hammerhead shark and plenty of Dolphin. I was pleased with the trip and the crew.

Great experience

We did a whale and dolphin watching trip. Crew were friendly and helpful, without being intrusive. We managed to see a humpback whale, which was amazing. I was impressed at the captain making sure the boat was brought to rest, rather than chasing the whale, so not to cause it stress, resulting in a fantastic display by the whale around us.

It was a great day, just cruising on the water. The bar was easily accessible, with food and drink available.

I would recommend this trip highly.
