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.

Our guides were great and made sure that we saw as many whales as we could. They did a great job of explaining the habits of the whales and it was very informative and interesting and fun.

It would have been nice if there were stools to sit on as we had to stand for over 2 hours and it got hard after a while. It was hard to see the whales because everyone rushed to the front of the boat- maybe he could have turned the boat around so that the whales could be seen by everyone. But there should be some type of seating. It was a very good tour.

Great tour company. Crew was very friendly and professional. Located a group of 5-7 California Grey Whales within 20 minutes of leaving port and followed them for the next hour. Also saw sea lions and a group of playful dauphins.

What a fun day!!

What a wonderful way to end the weekend. My mom and I are from Fountain Valley and wanted to do something different on our Sunday. We have been whale watching before but only saw dolphins that day. After reading recent reviews of whale spottings, I decided to buy our tickets on Zerve! My mom has never seen whales in person before and she got to see 5 gray whales! We also saw tons of dolphins and sea lions. We had a blast seeing all of the animals and also hearing the children scream with delight each time a dolphin swam close to the boat. I would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to enjoy a nice warm "winter" day on the water.

Amazing dolphin stampede
Sat, Jan 17  12:00 PM Annwolf Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Captain worked hard to find whales or dolphin pod. He did it even thou we ended up being 30 min late returning. It was truly worth the chase to get where they were playing
