We went out a little farther than usual until they spotted a Blue Whale which we watched for about 30 mins. We also saw Sunfish and Dolphins on the way back in so it was well worth the time and money for this activity. The adventure was scheduled for 2 hrs. but we were gone 3 hrs. because they wanted to make sure we saw a whale. We were on the 5 pm cruise and I recommend that you dress for it with a warm jacket and whatever else you need to remain comfortable since it is cooler out on the water. I had guests from out of the area and they loved this adventure and I highly recommend it for locals or tourists.

We had a friend visiting from out of town and I booked an evening blue whale cruise. I had checked reviews of whale-watching cruises in the area, and this Dana Wharf group was the most recommended. The captain did stay out about an hour longer than planned, so be warned--he is determined to find that whale (shades of Moby Dick). He did locate a blue whale and stayed in the area long enough to give us several views. He also spotted a couple of sunfish and a school of dolphins on the return. Ship was clean, mood was convivial. Highly recommend. I want to go again!

The entire experience is amazing. The captain was wonderful and did not turn back until we found a whale. Definitely worth the money and hope to go again!

I bought these tickets as a fathers day gift for my dad and my father in law. Ever since they went i have had nothing but thanks you from the both of them and the people they brought. My dad brought my 8 year old niece and this is all she talks about. She wanted to go back to school sooner so she could tell her friends all about it. I will definitely buy tickets again and maybe this time for myself to go.

One of those great Southern California tourist attractions that we, as So Cal natives, had never done until we had family from out-of-town visiting.

Truly memorable and a ton of fun

We spent $32 a ticket and didn't see any whales. They kept telling us how the whale was spotted in that area the day before, but we didn't see any whales. We saw a few dolphin so we didn't get a refund to come back another day. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!

Best Day Ever

I thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. We saw tons of dolphins and a blue whale mother with calf. The captain and first mate were great guides. I loved that the boat was not crowded. I look forward to going again soon, but probably on a week day. The other boats in the area were following us and made it difficult to see the whales.

There wasn't a whale to be found, saw some dolphins. They gave us a 1/2 off next ticket, which was nice of them.

I took my two boys, who are 10 and 3, and my parents on the whale watching trip. The crew was very knowledgeable and nice. We should have been on the boat for 2 hours but it turned into 2 and a half hours because we kept seeing more whales! The captain didn't want us to miss one! The boat was clean and nice. There wasn't a lot of seating of course but if you feel you need to sit for the entire ride I would suggest getting in line about a half hour before your boat is to leave.
