No Whales but Who Cares
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)
Wed, Apr 18, 12   12:00 PM MYOWNIGLOO Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
It was great being out on the ocean, and we "parked" in a pod of dolphins and had a great time watching them frolic. I swear they planned their jumps to void the cameras! And they seemed genuinely happy to see us and genuinely reluctant for us to leave when we did.

Oh, and we saw a sea lion. (I called it a seal and one of the crew corrected me with a good natured chuckle.)

The crew was friendly and professional and quite knowledgeable about where we were going and what we were seeing.

The trip was so enjoyable, I didn't even regret the prescription glasses I managed to drop overboard on the way out of the harbor. Really!

Whale Watching with Dana Wharf Sportsfishing

The boat, The Dana Pride, was clean and safe and our skipper was educated and very knowledgeable about the mammals we hoped to see, from whales to different dolphins etc. He did not dumb-down his narration and I liked that. As it happened the fog rolled in and we didn't see any whales so we got a whale-rain-check - much appreciated. Boat crew were friendly and very agreeable. We shall be back soon. Thanks.

We went with our young children and felt very safe with Captain Jack and his crew. The boat was calm and maintained this way the entire trip. Captain Jack and his crew were very informative about the whales and dolphins we saw. I would highly recommend this to anyone!

Fantastic family outing!

My family had a fantastic time on your whale watching tour. We especially appreciated how knowledgeable our guide was, we learned so much about the California Grey Whale that we were lucky enough to see. And, it was clear that the guide and the captain had a great deal of respect for this beautiful animal, and the tour was conducted in a way to not disrupt their migration. All around, a wonderful experience!

Our family consisted of young adults and seniors. We thoroughly enjoyed the outing and recommend it highly to anyone in the area. In addition to the whale watching we enjoyed the information given to us while we searched for whales and dolphins around us.

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!

Did not see any whales this trip out but have seen lots of whales in the past. Good thing is they give you a whale check so you can come back again so it's guaranteed.

Although we did not get to see any whales we did get to see dolphins and other sea animals. The crew was constantly giving us fun facts about the animals and about the local area. We will definitely be doing this again when we come to town.

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!

We saw lots of wildlife!

We went on a sunday at 10am. The ocean was calm and we saw dolphins, sea lions, and whales. The boat staff was very helpful and did all they could to get us close to the wildlife. I would recommend this trip!

Even though we did not see any whales, they gave us vouchers for another trip. They were very knowledgeable about the whales and dolphins. I will go again and recommend them to anyone.
