Unbelievable Experience
Sat, Feb 12, 11   12:00 PM Gruenewald Female 60-69 Local Group of Friends
My husband and I took relatives and friends who were visiting us from VA, CT and KS. We had the most exciting ride ever. The day was perfect. We saw whales going south and whales going north which is quite unusual we found out. Some of the whales showed off their tails while other jumped clear out of the water. We saw about 8-10 whale jumps. Then as we were returning, a group (there were so many we could not count them) came along side our boat and put on a show for us . They were swimming with us and jumping up and out of the water. It was more that we ever exxpected and the Captain said it was the best trip of the season. I highly reccomend this trip to everyone of all ages.

We had grandma/grandpa with us, as well as children (under 1 up to 5 yrs) and it was a wonderful experience. The crew seemed very knowledgeable, and we were able to see these amazing creatures. I highly recommend this trip and Dana Wharf.

Great 89th birthday gift
Sat, Feb 5, 11   2:00 PM irmalanglois Female 40-49 Local Family Without Children
It was my father's 89th birthday, he had never been on the ocean and eager to see Whales and Dolphins. While we did not see a whale, we had the adventure of our lifetime as the captain spotted a large group of dolphin of all ages. They stayed close to our boat for what seemed like and hour. It was an incredible experience for my father as well as my 19th year old son. We had an amazing time!

We were so lucky to go out for the day with such a hospitable boat crew and captain. Not only to us as passengers, but more importantly to the sea life that was presented before us. Such respect for our wildlife!

We were very lucky to watch a gray whale breach 3 times and fluke a good handful of times. The commom dolphin mega pod was spectacular as well.

A day we won't forget.

Thank you!

While we didn't get lucky enough to see a whale, we did see more dolphins than we could count, along with quite a few baby dolphins. My kids, ages 9 & 5, were thrilled to see the animals in the wild and can't stop talking about the experience. The staff was friendly and informative. We will definitely return.

Good times had by all.

The boat ride was excellent. Not too choppy. I have been on smaller boats and felt nautilus. They did everything in their power to find whales, and provided us with info on the species. We saw two whales and some other sea life. Very fun, especially, for the reasonable price. Our group consisted of graduate students from across the country that are currently going to school in California. We found Dana Point to be a beautiful area worth visiting as well.

This is something to share with your family. My kids (6 & 2 yrs) loved watching the dolphins leap in and out the water, see the whales & watching a sea lion swim around. This was our 2nd time to go on Dana Wharf's Tour and it's been great both times. A must see!

The experience was amazing!

The weather was perfect ! It could have been cold and windy. The boat is roomy with plenty of seating if you get in line early. The Captain was informative. We followed 3 whales for about 45 minutes. The captain then took us to see a pod of Dolphins numbering 50+. This was the real show. The adults as well as the children were so excited.

It was a great experience!

We saw lots of dolphins, but no whales. however, at half price, and 78 degrees and sunny, what's not to like? We enjoyed it even if we didn't see whales!

The weather was perfect, the ocean was clear, the captain knowledgeable the only thing missing was a whale! Still, we did see some fantastic dolphins. Fun and relaxing.
