We received the ticket quickly and had a wonderful time on our whale-watching trip. The captain went above and beyond making it an enjoyable trip.

I didn't catch a fish, but I did get a couple bites but it was just fun being on the water in this area for the first time. Will definitely go again soon now that I've got a little local seasoning. Other folks on the boat did catch fish I would like to add.

Nice people and service

We're from OC and it's our first time to go on whale watching at 4pm schedule. I'd say the boat trip alone was refreshing. We spotted group of seals swimming so fast and 1 whale from a far. The whale was from a distance and we're not able to have a closer look. It's no disappoint at all because it's nature you're up against. You cannot tell a whale to swim near the boat. Having said that Dana Wharf was so nice to return our tickets for another chance to see the whale. Ticket can be used again anythime within the year. All in all the experience was awesome!

I'd been looking to go whale watching again...so happy with the price figured I couldn't go wrong. Nice clean boat with a snack bar, coffee and hot cocoa for the kids. Didn't see any whales so they gave each of us in our group a coupon which the other boats in the area don't do. I'll definitely try it again!

Very simple process going through Zerve - the Whale watching company instantly recognized our tickets, the entire process took only minutes, and they were able to get us on an earlier trip. Will definitely use this service again!

All boat personnel were extremely friendly and helpful. Within 45 minutes we spotted three Gray whales and followed them for about another 45. One of the boat staff gave excellent commentary including whale facts. The boat was clean and easy to navigate around.

Did not spot any whales but totally enjoyed boat trip out in the big blue. Boat/yacht was beautiful, clean with excellent menu selection in the galley. So relaxing and enjoyable. Saw plenty of dolphins which was spectacular. Totally appreciate voucher to experience again. Intuition says we will catch that grey whale next time

Good experience

I bought tickets for my daughters. They saw sea lions, dolphins, and sea birds. They saw no whales and had their tickets refunded. Completely reasonable and satisfactory. I look forward to taking them out again later this year to spot whales. Dana Wharf might consider cooperating with local general aviation (private and commercial pilots) to ask for spotting reports on where whales are - might improve their chances of spotting whales.

On the morning that we went, we did not see any whales (but TONS of dolpins!). They gave us FREE tickets to come back any time (they guaruntee a whale sighting). The crew was very informative and gave a great educational talk about the whales and dolphins. Overall, it was a nice way to spend a couple of hours out on a boat!

What a great experience!

What a great experience, our captain and crew were very knowledgeable. We were lucky enough to see quite a few pods of dolphins (right next to our boat) and we saw 3 grey whales. The captain slowed the boat so we could get a better view, and even stayed out a little longer so we could enjoy our whale sighting. Other perks were the snackies, restrooms and inside viewing available down below. What a thrill to enjoy nature in their natural habitat.

We had a verly large group with young children, teenagers, young adults, and older adults. None of us had ever been on a boat on the ocean before, so that was an adventure in its self. Seeing the wildlife was just an addition to our adventure. It was warmer then we anticipated and enjoyed by every member of the group.
