The Best!

This was my 3rd excursion with these guys and we saw a whale!! Even if we hadn't, it would have been a great day just to be out on the water. The captain stayed with the whale for about an hour of the excursion so there was plenty of opportunity for all to take photos or videos. We've had the same captain every time and he's great! The crew is nice and the boat is clean. We won't go out with any other excursion company. These guys are the best.

Whales must have been at lunch as we saw just small parts of 5 far off and no dolphins. Boat before us got treated to a pod of orcas!

Was soo cool to see all the dolphins, jumping. Was impressed that we saw 4 whales, even though they didn't give us the tail! It was a great time for a great price!

The captain and staff were excellent. They knew where the whales were and followed them with great precision.

It was unbelivealbe to my wife and myself how they could predict where and when they would surface. My wife got a great picture of the whales tail. A unusual and unique experience.

Our captain and his spotter took us to the path of 3 whales migrating to Baja within 20 minutes of the start of the trip. Great job!

So glad we went with Dana Wharf!
Mon, Jan 16, 12   12:00 PM bbarmore Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
My two sons and I live in in Carlsbad and were hosting relatives from Texas. We picked Dana Wharf for a whale watching trip even though we could have gone to Oceanside Harbor or San Diego. It was a great choice. The boat was clean, the crew friendly and knowledgable, and best of all we not only saw whales, but hundreds of dolphins swimming with the boat. I don't know how rare that is, but it was magical. Didn't know if we could match the experience my relatives had when they were in Hawaii, but they were all smiles. Great day and a great family memory.

Would go again at twice the price!

Awe inspiring! Breathtaking! I smiled the whole time. I was happy just seeing all the dolphins play but to actually spot a whale and see it's tail while hearing a live informative narrative was awesome. I was there with my niece because it was on our bucket list but I would highly recommend it for a date. There's food, a bar and even the NFL on the tv during the trip and it's the smoothest ride.
