Bucket List item

Dana Wharf Whale Watching tour was everything I expected and more. The customer service from the clerks, shipman, and capital was better than expected. They were all friendly, happy and gave you fun facts and lots of information about the whales when we saw them. This was a bucket list item on my list and it was awesome to see the mother and baby whale.

Great Whale Watching!

Our captain and his first mate made sure that we were able to see whales despite reports that some whales were unfortunately hit by other boats and he thought we initially would not be able to see the whales. Great experience for our group of 9!

Fantastic experience and loads of fun

This is my 2nd go with Whale watching. The weather was beautiful, and the reservation was a snap. Parking was a bit challenging but they offered us another time frame if we were not able to park in time to make the trip. Arrive at least 2 hours prior to your departure as this is whale watching season and especially if its on the weekend. The captain was knowledgeable and respectful and we saw whales and lots of dolphins. Fun for any age group. The water was calm and so pretty. You must experience this as it is just unique. Bring your camera!

Looking forward to another one soon!

Weve gone out with Dana Wharf several times in the past. It's always a good time. The crew and staff are always helpful and informative. This year the weather and nature complied perfectly and it was a stellar day!

Fun adventure but minimal sightings

I would go again but would do more research about when whale sightings are more abundant. We saw a few gray whales blowing water but that's it. Unique experience even so.

Relaxing day in the ocean w/ whales
Sun, Mar 9, 14   8:00 AM Berrylopez Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
Went on the 8 am boat ride. Within 10 min on the boat I spotted the first whale on our left hand side. It was fun and great. Did not get sea sick. The kids had a good time. The weather was perfect. The only downfall is that the boat kept turning to the other side every time we saw a whale so if you find a whale on the left side it would turn to the right. All whales I saw ended up on our left side but was unable to see because the boat would turn. Other than that great experience.

Not because we did not see any whales, but because there were too many people and even if the whales did come by not everyone could visualize them. Unless you are standing at the "exact" spot or you have a bench up on top. I would have paid extra to sit on top if offered instead of "first come, first serve" . But the weather was beautiful and so I enjoyed the beautiful ocean and land views...

Fabulous excursion!
Sun, Mar 9, 14   8:00 AM MarthaParga Female 50-59 Local Family With Children
We had a fabulous time on the boat. The waters were calm and the surroundings breathtaking...so beautiful. We did not know what to expect, but, we had a great time. We did not get to see a full whale, we only saw the blowhole, a fin and a tale...but, that didn't matter the experience was fantastic. We will recommend this event to our friends and family and we will definitely take another tour. Thank you!

Nice trip, but wish we saw whales.

It was great seeing the dolphins, but sure wish we saw whales. Everytime we go, we never see whales, although it is very nice being out on the water on a boat.

we had a good ride but were disappointed not to see whales, just dolphin - cool but not the main attraction
