Good time, great weather, not much to see

Had a nice boat ride under sunny skies, but did not see any whales or dolphins despite the report of the previous group seeing a humpback. Disappointing to the kids not to witness the sea life but a decent trip nonetheless.

We saw a whale, were in awe, and loved it!

We were very lucky that we came upon a humpback whale. It was an awesome experience and we would recommend it to anyone. I cannot wait to come back to Orange Co. and I am sure that our family would be up for another trip on the Dana Wharf Whale Watching trip.

The only thing I was disappointed in was that because we found a whale, we never got the opportunity to see some dolphins. That is the only thing that would have made the trip a complete success. WE LOVED THE EXPERIENCE!

Happy With Our Adventure

We had a great time. We saw a humpback whale that surfaced a number of times near the boat. The Captain was knowledgeable and informative, and the deckhands were polite and helpful. The boat was nice and clean. The weather was perfect. Our six year old did get bored and whiny. We would be open to doing another trip with the hopes of seeing dolphins.

So fun. We can't wait to go again.

I am the mother of a 5 year old boy. My son had never caught a fish before and I hadn't been fishing since I was a child. They crew took excellent care of us and Cameron and Jonathan both took extra time to help my son catch fish. We are excited to go again very soon. I signed my son up to be part of the kid's club as well.

Hoping to eat ocean fish

This was a great time for our family! We enjoyed the boat ride, the staff was very kind and helpful with all of our needs. We were able to catch fish and it was fun for our kids to experience ocean fishing. They were a little disappointed that the fish we caught were not big enough to meet the legal catch and keep size. Overall it was a really great time to experience ocean fishing! Thanks Dana Wharf Sportfishing!

We LOVED it!
Fri, Jun 20, 14   12:00 PM Emerson96 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We had an amazing time. We were not expecting to see whales due to the season but a Minske whale surfaced several times, and he came close to the boat even though tour guide warned us they are kind of shy. We then had tons of dolphins sightings, they were speeding along beside and in front of our boat. So much fun! Clean, on time, knowledgeable guide. Recommended!

Great trip
Wed, Jun 18, 14   12:00 PM patrickmir1 Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Great trip. The kids loved seeing all the dolphins but were a bit disappointed in not seeing any whales. We were told it's not a good time for the whale watching once we were already on the catamaran. I think that disclaimer should be announced before purchase.

A great boat ride!

Staff were very accommodating and friendly on the phone and in person. We were on the catamaran and it was awesome! We saw plenty on dolphins but no whales;( but understandable, there's no predicting Mother Nature. We will be returning to use them again soon!

Satisfactory excursion.
Sun, Jun 15, 14   12:00 PM dmccoy Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Good seats for viewing on top.....first 45 min. Was a nice boat ride, saw nothing.....then we got into a large school of dolphins.....saw all of the dolphins jumping and swimming next to the boat that you would want to and several picture taking opportunities......no whales to see this trip in mid-June........stopped by a floating buoy on the way back into the harbor full of sleeping sea lions....again, more picture opportunities......nice trip for 2 hours with our grand kids.........a fun time was had by all!
