Great experience

Captain was friendly and knowledgable. Used info from previous trip to find whales for us almost immediately. Very informative about animals and sealife. Also found many dolphins, seabirds, and sealions. We traveled with the whales for almost an hour. Phenomenal experience. Very convenient location and easy access for me as I use a cane.

Mother Nature keeps us waiting...

I loved that getting our tickets was so simple. Everyone was nice. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to see any whales but we did have a lovely afternoon out and we have a "whale check" to return for another adventure. You can't beat this policy! You cannot predict Mother Nature so just enjoy the ride and maybe you'll get lucky.

The boat was very clean and well maintained, the crew was exception and the Captain was knowledgeable about marine wildlife and was passionate about educating us -- it was an amazing experience. We saw 2 Gray Whales, some dolphins and sea lions. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us!

Had a great time on the boat with my husband children. Unfortunately we didn't see any whales or dolphins, but they were so kind enough to give us a raincheck to come back! Will definately be going back and telling my family and friends about it!!

Bucket List item

Dana Wharf Whale Watching tour was everything I expected and more. The customer service from the clerks, shipman, and capital was better than expected. They were all friendly, happy and gave you fun facts and lots of information about the whales when we saw them. This was a bucket list item on my list and it was awesome to see the mother and baby whale.

Great Whale Watching!

Our captain and his first mate made sure that we were able to see whales despite reports that some whales were unfortunately hit by other boats and he thought we initially would not be able to see the whales. Great experience for our group of 9!

Salt air and sea breezes

Great outing for grandparents or parents to share with their children. Great hamburgers on board and a great crew. So helpful to the children. And there was a fishing instruction class on board before departure. Advise you to book on line and arrive early. This seems to be a very popular adventure.

Fun adventure but minimal sightings
Sun, Mar 9, 14   8:00 AM Kellystran Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I would go again but would do more research about when whale sightings are more abundant. We saw a few gray whales blowing water but that's it. Unique experience even so.

Relaxing day in the ocean w/ whales
Sun, Mar 9, 14   8:00 AM Berrylopez Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
Went on the 8 am boat ride. Within 10 min on the boat I spotted the first whale on our left hand side. It was fun and great. Did not get sea sick. The kids had a good time. The weather was perfect. The only downfall is that the boat kept turning to the other side every time we saw a whale so if you find a whale on the left side it would turn to the right. All whales I saw ended up on our left side but was unable to see because the boat would turn. Other than that great experience.

Fabulous excursion!
Sun, Mar 9, 14   8:00 AM MarthaParga Female 50-59 Local Family With Children
We had a fabulous time on the boat. The waters were calm and the surroundings breathtaking...so beautiful. We did not know what to expect, but, we had a great time. We did not get to see a full whale, we only saw the blowhole, a fin and a tale...but, that didn't matter the experience was fantastic. We will recommend this event to our friends and family and we will definitely take another tour. Thank you!
