A Most Enjoyable Morning
Sat, Mar 7  8:00 AM Patpowers Male 60-69 Local Family Without Children
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.

See above - we did see Dolphins & Sea Lions. Had 2 adults and 7 and 9 year old girls. Is there anyway of predicting whales will show up?

Whales only at 12:00

Whales were only at 12:00 only the people on the front of the boat got to see them but the people on the sides and back only got a glimpse.

People in the front of the boat pushed the small children out ot the way and they didn't get to see.

Next time spin the boat around a little.

Saw many whales of different types and a school of dolphin that played in the wake of the boat and swam along side. Great time. Perfect weather. Wonderful boat and crew. Great time overall!

It was a beautiful day to be on the ocean. Despite seeing no whales, we thoroughly enjoyed the dolphins, the ride and the crew.

This trip was amazing and well worth the money. Although, it is not "whale season" we were lucky to have two humpback whales playing alongside our boat......and then there were the dolphins! First we saw a small school of them and then a much larger school that were frolicking and showing off right next to our boat. Great crew .... great couple of hours out on the water! Loved the entire experience. Our group was 4 1/2 months, 2 1/2 years and 4 adults 30-72....everyone loved it! The baby took an extra long nap since he was rocked to sleep!! Thank you for a perfect afternoon!

I purchased the Whale Watching tour for my boyfriends birthday because he had never been. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and our captain took extras measures to make sure we all had a great time! I totally recommend Dana Wharf Whale Watching!!!

We saw a whale, the same whale four times as it came up for air. There were many dolfin swiming and jumping along side the boat. We had a great time. Of course, a whale sighting is not for certain, but our outing was great.
