This was our 2nd trip with Dana Wharf, both were excellent. The captain was very knowledgeable about the whales & dolphins, we even purchased a video which was more extensive than we thought it would be.

Wonderful experience

The captain first told us when we got on the boat that only one whale was seen that afternoon. I was wondering whether we would see anything at all. Shortly into the trip, however, we ran into a large group of dolphins and they played in the wake of the boat! Right after that, a large fin whale was spotted north of us so we headed up to see him. He spouted a few times as we watched in awe. Right before we were going to turn in, the captain asked if anyone needed to be back on time. No one did, so he took us south to catch a pod of three grey whales migrating up the coast! Overall, it was a great experience and we were fortunate to see as much marine life as we did.

Second trip. Both great. First trip enormous dolphins stampede and one fin whale. Second trip a few dolphins and seals with 13 gray whales showing a lot of flukes. Both trips very very enjoyable.

I went with a couple of friends and the whole time we saw nothing. The weather was great so I didn't mind being at the sea for 2 hours.

No rotation

It would have been good if they would rotate everyone at least twice during this time so everyone fishes from a different portion of boat. In fishing in bow bait was very limited.

This was our second whale watching trip. Found your employess (desk to ship crew) helpful and knowledgable. On our most recent trip We only encountered one probably disabled whale without a tail??? Our first trip last year was an exceptioal trip for whale watching. Looking to have that same experence again. Pricing was with a discount and a very godd value. Will do it again with your company.

Clean boat in very good shape. Friendly crew provided some great knowledge of the whales and their migration process without overtalking. Highly recommended.

great day on the water
Sat, Mar 14  12:00 PM DavidDayan Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
Perfect day to get out on the water on 'Reel Fun'. Sunny and warm, swell was minimal and super glassy conditions. We hit 5 different reefs with good 'hook ups' on all. Good variety of small to mid-sized fish. Deck hands were awesome. On it under every situation. A few reckless casting nut jobs could have used some pushback from the crew. But overall day was perfect. Thanks fellas!
