Nice trip, but wish we saw whales.

It was great seeing the dolphins, but sure wish we saw whales. Everytime we go, we never see whales, although it is very nice being out on the water on a boat.

Even though it was a day of light rain, our trip was fantastic. We had the pleasure of seeing a large pod of dolphins, and two whales that let us watch them for more than 20 minutes. if you go when it is raining, don't forget to bring a poncho, or some kind of raincoat. You will love it!

Our captain and crew worked hard to get us in position to see 2 gray whales. One whale did a 3/4 jump up out of the water. Also saw many common dolphin and sea lions. Captain was very informative about the whales and dolphin we saw. Great trip, Thank You Mike from York, PA

Great time on the ocean

went with 8 family members and everyone enjoyed being out on the ocean. at first all we saw was lots of dolphin but toward the end of our tour the Captain spotted some gray whales and followed them north along the coastline. we were late getting back but nobody cared because we were enjoying the whales and dolphins. the Captain was very informative. Loved it!

2 Gray Whales Spotted

We followed 2 gray whales for a long time and then we came up on a mega pod of dolphins which was equally exciting and even more entertaining. Our guide was very informative and enthusiastic. It was well worth the money for what we saw.

Always a good day!

We enjoy our local area and businesses and we are lucky enough to live in an area with such great outdoor adventures. As always Dana Wharf provides a great experience and no matter if we see whales or not it is always a good time on the water.

The only issue I have is that there are so many options on ticket prices. We saw a variety of prices from $45 down to $15. Please standardize this as much as possible

Best 2 hours I have spent in DP in years

The Captain and crew went beyond duty to make sure you were not only enjoying yourself on the mini excursion but it was incredibly informative. I did not feel like a spectator at Sea World but learning a true appreciation of why we were seeing the whales and dolphins and the immense respect for their trek to and from Alaska to Baja. We were lucky to see a mom and her calf and a few other whales. And we ended up getting a 30 minute show by thousands of dolphins who seemed very happy to see us and showed off their swimming skills. So nice to see these beautiful mammals in the wild. I will go again and definitely recommend it to all my friends and family.

We didn't see any whales on the 2 hour cruise, just dolphins which I see from our shore in San Clemente year around. No mention was made of a free ticket to return if no whales had been sighted and I had been told that was part of the deal.

Whale Watching Date
Fri, Feb 7, 14   12:00 PM jodizbirdz Female 50-59 Local Couple on a Date
My boyfriend and I had a great time last Friday, even though we didn't see a single whale. Our captain tried really hard, but for what ever reason, they weren't in the area at that time. They did see them that day, but not on our trip that left at noon. But we saw several hundred playful Pacific Bottle-Nosed Dolphins and got to watch their acrobatics for at least 30 min.

This is my second trip with Dana Wharf Whale Watching tours, and I will be back again. Totally professional operation.

Gray whales & a megapod of dolphins
Sat, Feb 1, 14   2:30 PM judithLV Female 50-59 Combination Family Without Children
I have never seen so many dolphins together at one time; hundreds leaping and cavorting.

The whales (3) showed their tails. Sun was shining, it was a great 2 hours.
