A glorious day, did not matter that we saw whales. A nice surprise that we were given a rain check because no whales were spotted. Just the boat ride, view of the coast, the fresh air, and hints of Catalina made it all worth while.

The boat company was organized and did a great job. During the trip the boat guide provided lots

of information about the marine life. We saw hundreds of dolphins and some seals. It was a good experience.

Cruise was definitely "A" rated!!

The cruise boat was very clean and orderly. Crew was A+. The only thing our group would have recommended would be for the captain to announce a tad more about the grey whales (ie: since Newport Coast is such a fashion hub, it would be interesting to note a fun fact such as "ambergris". It comes from the whales and is historical in the use of a fixative in the perfume industry. The captain was wonderful in announcing whale info, but possibly add 5% of fun details such as this. All in all GREAT EXPERIENCE and would do it again.

Great Activity

We had a great time. The Dana Wharf facility has ample parking, friendly staff and clean boats. The captain's running narrative while we were out in the ocean was entertaining, educational and high energy. We saw at least four whales. Bonus round: a dozen dolphins followed the boat and played in the boat's wake for awhile. The captain glided by the harbour bouy on the return trip and gave us a close look and quick lesson about the seals/sea lion piled up in the float. I would highly recommend Dana Wharf Whale Watching trip.

All of our experience was very positive except that it was sometimes difficult to hear and/or understand what was being said over the speakers depending upon where we were located. Safety information at the beginning was almost unintelligible. Perhaps it could be given before the boat is underway. Crew members answered questions in a professional and friendly way when asked. This was a very enjoyable experience!
