We had a fun time on the boat my 3 year old had a blast, I just wished we would have seen whales. We did see a lot of dolphins which left us happy. Maybe next time, I would definately try it again.

We had a great time we saw a lot of dolphins and some whales, the captain was great, he would tell us where to look for the whales and he made sure both sides of the boat could get a good look at the whales

Foggy, but fun

The fog was in which made it difficult to find any whales. However, the crew made a valiant effort. We saw several pods of dolphins & stayed out an extra half an hour in search. We got 50% discount passes for another trip. We'll definitely be going again.

Went on the 5pm Whale Watching tour with my family. Had a great time watching the Whales and Dolphins. Crew was very professional and the boat was very clean.

Great Experiance

The catch has been rough the past few weeks and the crew knew that. We tried a lot of different spots, but the storm moved the fish. The crew was nice and helpful and although we did not catch many fish, it was a great trip.

Terrific even when the whales don't show up

We are always happy to travel with the folks from the Dana Wharf Whale Watching excursions. This was probably about our 6th trip and our first sunset cruise. The crew is friendly and knowledgeable. The ship is clean and enjoyable. This cruise was not too crowded, so there were plenty of seats below and above (I do wish they had a few more seats on the boat).

We did come upon a large pod of bottle nose dolphin -- this was our first encounter with them, as we usually have seen the common dolphin. We were given much time to enjoy them, photograph them and watch them play with the ship. There was no mention from the PA about not being able to find a whale -- I wish they had clarified that. But we also know that whale sightings are down this season.

Last stop was to visit the sea lions that take refuge on a red buoy in the water, and they always delight the kids. This was a birthday gift for our daughter, and her request to take out the cruise again. We will be back as many times as our schedule allows and highly recommend it to all.

Although we didn't see any whales or dolphins, our trip was fun and relaxing. We recieved a ticket to come back again (with no expiration date!) :)

The workers on the boat were very pleasant and welcoming!

Thank you very much,

This was a great activity! We saw Dolphins, Gray Whales, and Thin Whales. The crew was great! On a overcast day we appreciated having the opportunity to enjoy food and drinks in the cabin. The Captain amazed us with his wealth of knowledge on everything we saw. We had a wonderful time and would highly reccomend this to everyone. We have a 4 year old and she can't stop talking about the boat ride and seeing all of the animals. Thanks for the great time!

We are from Indiana on a business / vacation and saw the add in the hotel fliers. The catamaran was very clean and manned by a very friendly and knowledgeable crew. The most rememberable part of the adventure was the sight of the Blue Whale. If we are ever able to get back to California we will diffenatly make anouther booking. Thank you very much in helping book the adventure.

Fishing and Fun
Sat, Jun 14, 08   12:00 PM johnwmilton Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
It is not exactly deep sea fishing but still a lot of fun. We mostly fished in waters between 30-50 feet deep. Most of the fish caught were bottom feeders. Not a lot of keepers. It is a great way to spend quality time with your family with a minimum of work on your own part. The helpers on the boat were available to do most of the hard work. However, baiting the hook with a live sardine was a challenge. They did have pieces of squid which made it easier for the squeemish. A lot of standing up. Plus, the boat did not have a lot of room to walk around so you are pretty much stuck in one place. Overall it was a lot of fun and a great way to see the coast line of California.

We did not encounter or view any whales or dolphins and as a result we were issued a return trip voucher. We will return because the boat and crew were very knowlegable and great to their customers!
