Fun Trip
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)

This was overall a fun trip for our family. We saw tons of dolphins the only disappointing part was with the wale. We saw one wale which was not very active at all and the boat hovered about 200 yards away for the majority of the trip instead of moving on to see if there was anything else around to see. The crew was very friendly and educated just a little disappointed with them just staying with the one wale for most of the trip.

Amazing Experience

Dana Wharf Sport fishing and Whale Watching is an amazing company to go whale watching with. This was my first experience with whale watching, but the captain was very knowledgeable about the whales, dolphins, and sea lions. The crew were also very knowledgeable and helpful. They let us know what to look for so that we would be able to get the best pictures. It was an incredibly amazing experience and I would and have recommend this company. The fact that they offer a half-price day allowed me to add this when I normally wouldn't have.

Had a great time, crew is very accommodating and knowledgeable. Would have been a great experience even

if we had not seen any marine life (but we did) and the crew was very informative as to what we were seeing ,why and also a little marine biology lesson thrown in. I do not hesitate to recommend this trip to any and all. Enjoy!

The boat was clean....we cast off on time....the crew was helpful and talked to everyone......knowledgeable.....AND

We had a whale frolicking next to the boat for almost an hour. The whale and dolphins and sea lions seemed to be playing with each other and keeping up with the boat.

Family fun for an afternoon on the ocean!

For my 56th birthday I decided to treat my parents, spouse, teenage AND adult children and grandchildren (ages 2,5,6 and 11) to whale watching at the Dana Point Harbor. We have gone before and had a fun adventure for the day. Although last year when we went for Valentine's Day we had a spectacular day (seeing not only whales, but dolphins and seals) this year our tour guide left the whales we spotted first thing, to visit a pod of dolphins. Turned out that we never did get to see whales for the day.

In addition, our guide ignored a number of seals sun bathing and zoomed right past them. I guess because we had such a fantastic trip last year this year was a bit uneventful except for the 15 minutes we had with the dolphins!

I understand that depending on the day and time we don't always see all three of these amazing creatures however we might have had the guide followed the first whale he had spotted and also taken us for five minutes to see the seals!

All-in-all the trip on the ocean was fun, the boat very comfortable and the hot chocolate and snacks were tasty!

We are planning another trip out to see the whales with my brother when he comes to visit from Northern California. This time I will ask the guide to see the seals too!

I would definitely recommend this activity for all ages and especially families with children!

We were treated to one finback whale and some dolphins. The boat was comfortable and clean.

The grey whales are pretty much gone now. Left Berins Sea early this year because of weather and are already in Mexico. Might be a good idea to let people know that before booking. All in all a nice trip and worth the 2 hrs.

Guides were very informative. Only problem were adults who sat on table tops and blocked view for children and shorter adults.

My whole group had a wonderful time on this trip: we saw so many dolphins, a few whales, and learned so much about where we live. I want to do it again next week!

Cold waters and Cold Air made fishing a little slow but the CPT and crew kept us jumping until we did get on some. Great Trip and the food from the Galley was GREAT....
