No whales but a great time!
Sun, Jan 17  10:00 AM JeffSantoni Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
Lets start with the basics: Easy to book, great price, beautiful boat, super friendly staff, amenties on-board for everyone (beer, sodea, bloody mary's, food, etc) priced reasonably. On our 2hr cruise we saw pods and pods of dolphins but unfortunately no whales. But honestly, the experience of being on the water on a sunny day (temps in the low 60's) was peacefully amazing. I've been a Laguna Niguel resident for 20 yrs and this was the time we've done this - and it won't be the last. HIGHLY recommend!!!

Staff was nice, the boat was nice, the weather was nice, but there was only one whale. Received a coupon for half off of our next trip though.

My husband and I took the 2 hour boat ride and loved it. We did not see any whales or dolphins but we did see sea lions. We were very pleased to receive a voucher for another trip at another date. We are from Texas and not likely to get back soon, but when we do return we will definitely try again to see whales. The boat ride alone was worth going. Thank you.
 
Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching responded:
We are happy to hear you had a good time on the boat regardless. Hopefully we see you again soon. Thanks for a positive review!

But a relaxing day and passes for another trip. Might add some commentary about what we are passing on the shore.

Hopefully you will be able to see some whales next time you come out with us. Thanks for the great review!

We have live in Dana Point for over 30 years. This was our first time and we enjoyed it very much. It was a beautiful day. We will do it again. The price was right.

Great being out on the water
Sat, Oct 24, 15   4:00 PM Jdornfeld Unspecified Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
It was really relaxing to be out on the water. We were able to see many dolphin and a whale breach 4 times. The crew worked hard to spot the whale and you just see a small part of it but it was exciting. Even if we had not see a whale it was wonderful to be out for a 2 hour boat ride and enjoy being out on the water and in the fresh air.
