We had grandma/grandpa with us, as well as children (under 1 up to 5 yrs) and it was a wonderful experience. The crew seemed very knowledgeable, and we were able to see these amazing creatures. I highly recommend this trip and Dana Wharf.

Very cool way to spend a few hours on a Saturday!

Even though we didn't see any whales, we did see a very large pod of dolphins out and about.....seemed like thousands of them! It felt great being out on the water and the captain gave a nice narration of all that was going on around us, especially of the type of dolphins we were seeing. We had a great time and it was very relaxing!

Joyful and eventful day!

We were so lucky to go out for the day with such a hospitable boat crew and captain. Not only to us as passengers, but more importantly to the sea life that was presented before us. Such respect for our wildlife!

We were very lucky to watch a gray whale breach 3 times and fluke a good handful of times. The commom dolphin mega pod was spectacular as well.

A day we won't forget.

Thank you!

While we didn't get lucky enough to see a whale, we did see more dolphins than we could count, along with quite a few baby dolphins. My kids, ages 9 & 5, were thrilled to see the animals in the wild and can't stop talking about the experience. The staff was friendly and informative. We will definitely return.

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful day out on the ocean seeing not only whales, but many, many dolphins. The crew was helpful and informative. This trip was truly a delight - I'd do it all over again! :-)

This is something to share with your family. My kids (6 & 2 yrs) loved watching the dolphins leap in and out the water, see the whales & watching a sea lion swim around. This was our 2nd time to go on Dana Wharf's Tour and it's been great both times. A must see!

The weather was perfect ! It could have been cold and windy. The boat is roomy with plenty of seating if you get in line early. The Captain was informative. We followed 3 whales for about 45 minutes. The captain then took us to see a pod of Dolphins numbering 50+. This was the real show. The adults as well as the children were so excited.

It was a great experience!

We saw lots of dolphins, but no whales. however, at half price, and 78 degrees and sunny, what's not to like? We enjoyed it even if we didn't see whales!

The boat was great with lot's of room to move around. The crew was fabulous. The captain was great with his knowledge of wildlife and the chef made us yummy breakfast sandwiches. Everyone was kind and friendly. We got to see Common dolphins, a Grey whale, and some sea lions. I would recommend this excursion to everyone.

Thank you,

It was an amazing day. Weather was spectacular but more than that we saw approximately 5 gray whales and many, many schools of dolphins!! Mostly common dolphins but also Rizo dolphins. We took our son who is 5 1/2 years old and it was so amazing to see and experience it through his eyes. The wonderment of it all. Really was a wonderful trip in all ways!! Highly recommend it.

The day started out with breakfast out, drove out to Dana Piont where the weather was just beautiful! The boat ride out was fabulous, immediately found our CA Grey Whale, followed it for a long while which allowed us to take plenty of pictures.. Along the way the staff provided great information about the grey whales. I would love to go again!
