Our whale watching venture did not produce any whales, but we were lucky enough to spot a sea otter, sea lions & hundreds of dolphin up close & personal. The boat was very nice providing indoor & outdoor seating. The staff was helpful, knowledgeable & well qualified.

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!

We had a great time on the whale watching cruise in Dana Point. It was a beautiful day and the waters were nice and calm, absolutely perfect. The staff were all friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable. I have strongly recommended the cruise to friends and family. It was a great experience!

Not Worth It

We spent two hours on a boat to see barley anything. I understand that they cannot do anything about how many whales you see or where the whales will be, but all we saw was the top of a whale and then turned around and went home. It was not even close to worth the amount we paid. I'm surprised we didn't get a free voucher after we wasted two hours to see nothing. I definitely would not do that again.

We had a great time whale watching. We did indeed see whales and some sea lions. We were hoping to see dolphins too, but we did not have that opportunity. The staff at the ticket counter were very friendly and the experience was very positive.

I will definitely do this again!

Even though we didn't see any whales, we saw a small pod of common dolphins. The crew was fabulous!

We saw a huge pod of 500 dolphins, and we saw a very large blue whale. It was really a special day and the captain was very knowlegeable about the sea life we saw. I went with my 84 year old mother and my 16 year old daughter. A great activity for young and old!
