My triplets flew to California to be with me for their Spring Break. We planned this trip well in advance and could not have been more pleased with the Whale Watching Tour that you provided us with. The pod of dolphins was simply amazing (I thought a pod would mean 5-6 dolphins, not HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of dolphins!!!) Then, viewing the two California Gray Whales and having one breech right in front of us was just breath-taking. Thank you for making my triplets' trip so wonderful!

First Time Whale Watchers!

We were worried we wouldn't see whales and this would be a wasted trip BUT we saw many whales and dolphins! After the 20 minute ride out to deep water, we were seeing spouts from the whales and there was a pod coming up for air every 3-5 minutes! It was exciting for a Midwesterner! We also saw dolphins with their young and some daring dolphins playing in and out from under the boat! We had a great time and would definitely go again. We went on the 10am tour. It was the perfect time for us.

A Most Enjoyable Morning

We took the early tour, the first of the day. It was already sunny, clear and warm. They didn't over-crowd the boat so everyone could stand near the side. Operators found a pod of three whales right away, and they positioned the boat so that we could all see. Since the whales are migrating, we did not see any actually breach, but we were close enough to see them swim to surface, blow air and submerge, sometimes showing their tail fins. The ocean was not choppy, so there was no risk of sea sickness. When the first group moved on, we went back and observed another group of whales. So there was plenty to see, the day was beautiful, the boat was not too crowded and the operators kept us comfortable. We had a very good time.

We saw whales and appreciated the captain's sharing of his knowledge about their behavior and their presence just off the Dana Point headlands. It was a lovely experience and I look forward to doing it again.

It was such a nice day - little crowded because of that but my mother and I had a great time. Dana Wharf is so organized and explain well on the boat. Very educational for kids and adults. We will be back! Thank you.
