Promises Delivered!

Dana Wharf delivered, not only on whale and dolphin sightings, but entertaining, knowledgeable commentary and a thoroughly professional crew. The trip was comfortable, on time, and packed full of fascinating information about whale and dolphin habitat and the coastal marine environment. We saw a huge grey whale and calf right off the bat, followed a school of hundreds of common dolphins as they fed and played in the boat's wake, and finally, due entirely to the crew's persistence and communications with other boats in the area, located a humpback whale known to be feeding close by. The humpback put on a show for us that lasted about 10 minutes, providing great photo opportunities for all. It was the best way to end a fantastic trip. Highly recommended!

Awesome afternoon, We had the best experience on this whale watching trip and would absolutely do it again. There were lots and lots of whales and reaching babies. The photography was so much fun on this trip. And the price is very very reasonable.

I've live in California for over 20 years and have never been on a whale watching tour and this one was amazing. Dusty & Jason were great greeters and while we didn't get real close up to the whales in sight, I've never seen the hundreds of dolphins in my life!!!!!!!

I had a good time. We only saw three whales form a distance, I wish we could have seen more and closer up. The staff on the boat was really nice and friendly. There is a small galley where you can purchase food and drink, the prices were very reasonable. I brought my 1 year old son with me and he loved it. I had no trouble bringing his stroller aboard , there are ramps to board the boat. I just plan to go agian sometime.

A great trip as always...

My family is local to Dana Point, and we go out at least once a year. It's always nice to get out on the water, and the Dana Wharf folks do it right. The boat is always clean, the crew is always friendly, and we always have a nice time.

I would highly recommend going out with the Whale Watching crew and enjoying the beautiful Marine life

The crew members were very kind and knew a lot about the whale and dolphins we saw!! I had a great time and would go back again, for sure!!

Dull and boring

My 4 year old had a blast just being on the boat. But I hate to say it... it sucked. There weren't thousands of whales. There were like 2 that barely came up for air.... Like twice.
