No whales, only dolphins but pleasant excursion.

Weather became overcast, windy, light rain so no whales. Disappointed but not company' s fault. Thought we would be on catamaran but we're on a large boat also used for fishing.

not a bad trip, bass were hitting, only issue was that the back rail was not monitored, during changes, multiple people would not move. and the back was the only place close to the kelp. only got to hit the back rail for 30min of my 5hour trip. could have been better

Great experience on the water.

Really made an effort to view all different cetaceans. We saw blue whales, Risso's dolphin and common dolphin. We stayed with each for an extended period of time so we could really watch and photography their behaviors. It was very enjoyable.

Enjoyed the trip

It was very enjoyable. The only thing that would have made it more so would have been if we saw more whales. We were able to see the humpback whale. It surfaced many times. It was majestic. The sheer number of dolphins was mind boggling.

This is such a great activity for all ages!! We went with our 11 year old son and had a blast!! There were all ages on the boat, from children to grandparents, all laughing and acting like children every time we saw Dolphins and Whales.

The staff at Dana Wharf were very professional and fun and we had an AMAZING TIME!!!!

This was a delightful experience. The Captain and crew put in a lot of effort to make our cruise enjoyable and successful. The Whales were fascinating.

My friend visiting me here in California and I had a great time on the whale watching tour!!! The guide was SO friendly and wanted to make SURE we saw awesome stuff and had the best time possible. He really cared about how our experience was. It was great. I already signed up to go again this weekend! Definitely worth the money! We saw thousands of Dolphins, lots of sea lions and we even saw TWO blue whales! We were so happy! Can't wait to go again this weekend!!!!!

We had a group of 9. Ages between 13 and 68. All enjoyed the adventure. We only saw dolphins the day we went out. But, we saw hundreds of them. They followed the boat and would jump right next to the boat. We all enjoyed the experience.

Great Fathers Day outing
Sun, Jun 21  5:00 PM Bspeak Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
We took 3 generations (ages 2 to 64) for the 2 hour evening whale watching adventure. Saw LOTS of whales, dolphins, and sea birds. Our 6 year old was really engaged in the whole event. Her comment: "Grandma, this is even better than a documentary!!" The 2 and 4 year olds enjoyed going up and down the stairs into the galley area, and loved watching the dolphins. They had trouble seeing the whales, as they were farther away and by the time someone spotted one and pointed it out, it had gone back underwater again. The older generations had as much fun watching the kids as we did watching the sea creatures. The captain was great with the commentary, very knowledgeable and interesting. Altogether a 5 star experience. Highly recommend it!
