The whale activity was low in the morning, just 1, but the captain made up for it with great information and finding an exciting pod of dolphins. Great fun.

The captain is very knowledgeable and has a great eye, we were able to stop and see a water turtle that is really rare, 2 different types of whales with calves , a huge group of bottle nose dolphins (25 at least) and even a school of bony fish. The amazing weather helped the trip and the kids had a blast! :)

The Captain worked hard to find fish and the crew was very helpful to all the anglers. Our overall fishing experience was both fun and relaxing.

Super Great For Adualts and Kids

We have been on different tours in the past and this by far was the best experience we have had. The crew was great and what a beautiful place Dana point is. They told us they had not been seeing many whales but would do there best to find one. We ended up seeing 6 or 7 whales and one put on a great show. We also saw lots of Dolphins. Great trip and great crew.

Very nice trip, highly recommended

We enjoyed our whale watching trip tremendously! This is a highly recommended activity! The boat driver made all the effort to see some marine animals and we did see a Grey Whale. Make sure you heed their advice and bundle up as they go a few miles offshore.

Whale Watching
Tue, Mar 31  12:00 PM tzunami31 Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This trip was not just for "whale watching." We had the chance to see bottlenose dolphins, sea lions, and seals. We were lucky we found whales towards the end of the trip. It was an awesome site to behold. The trip was very relaxing and they did a wonderful job. As the boat took off there was one family almost left behind. They were running late. However, they reverse the boat & pick them up. It goes to show they care about their customers more than money.

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
Sat, Mar 28  4:30 PM frannynuge Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
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.

Terrific Trip
Tue, Mar 24  12:00 PM rahmsh Male 60-69 Local Family Without Children
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.
