This is the second time we have been out whale watching from Dana Harbor. We enjoy it very much. The staff or courteous, and still care a lot about what they are doing.

These guys know what they are doing really very well. I traveled from Oregon on Sept 7th and took this cruise to watch Blue Whales with a few other friends. We had a great look at the Blue Whale! And saw thousands of Dolphins swimming alongside the cruise and "by the wind sailors". The guides are very helpful and eagerly answer to all the questions you may have and more. They also talked of several interesting facts about the animals we saw. We had a "whale" of a time indeed!

Great idea for a special occasion

My boyfriend took me on the whale watching cruise for my birthday. After over an hour on the water seeing only sea lions, we weren't sure we'd end up seeing any whales, but we really didn't care because we loved being out on the water on such a beautiful day. We were thrilled when the captain told us that another boat had radioed him to say they spotted some whales. We immediately took off for the area and saw two gray whales swimming side by side. It was amazing! Definitely something to do for anyone who has a chance to get to Dana Point. Loved it!

Well worth it

Whales are right off shore so no long trek out to sea. Boat commodious. Bloody Mary's available for those with children (and food for kids as well). Very persistent crew in finding and tracking whales. Good commentary

Although we did not see any whales at the 8am boat ride, the captain did take us to the area where there were more than a hundred dolphins swimming and jumping out of the water. Not seeing any whales wasn't a deal breaker for us because we got the tickets at a bargain price, so you can't complain for not seeing any whales. The captain was determined to find some whales on the 8am ride and even took us farther than he normally would go for these tours, but no whales. The environment is very friendly and everyone on board were mostly younger families bringing their kids. I would definitely go again at the discounted price--in case we don't see any whales again.

Great Boat Ride

Was a good day for a boat ride; saw one whale and her calf and lots of dolphins. Only bad thing I can say is that the 2:00 trip actually left at 2:15 and we were back at the dock a few minutes before 4:00. It wasn't a two hour trip.
