Check the weather forecast

Unfortunately, not a sunny day, clouds loomed overhead and the water was really choppy. There were no animals to be found, the captain wasn't sure where they went. He very kindly gave us our tickets back so we can reschedule. Would definitely go again, but will check the weather forecast first.

Awesome Adventure!

This was a very special trip for my husband and I. We had never been whale watching and this did not disappoint! We were very fortunate to enjoy many sightings of the massive Blue Whale in all their glory. The crewman estimated it at about 80-90 feet long and the boat was 60 feet so you had some perspective of the size. At one point we even saw three of them in extremely close to proximity to one another but not too close to the boat. One of the crewmen said we were experiencing something very special and we all quieted down our level of excitement in order to hear them breathe.

The boat, on board refreshment-availability, crew, and the amazing sightings all exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended!

A three hour trip well worth the drive

My wife and I drove three hours from Bakersfield to our hotel in San Clemente in order to the Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure courtesy of the Dana Whark Sportfishing and Whale Watching. We got our money's worth. The boat crew was professional and courteous. We saw dolphins and sea lions, and at least six Blue Whales!!

Had a lovely time, did not see any whales but a lot of dolphin. I could have spent all day just watching them play around the boat.

Totally enjoyed our whale watch excursion at Dana Point. The reservation process on Zerve was quick and easy. The price was really reasonable. The staff on the boat was professional and very knowledgeable about whales. Our whole experience was good!
