Super Experience!
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)

Our captain did a great job of navigating so that we could view the sea mammals. We saw one grey whale, some dolphins, seals, and numerous orcas, which he said were a rare sight in southern California waters. All in all, it was the best whale cruise we have ever experienced The orcas were a bonus. We would have had an excellent experience if we had not seen them. I would highly recommend them to anyone. The Tuesday 1/2 price was great too.

OMG I highly recommend you to go Whale Whatching. It WAS an amazing experience! We saw lots of killer Whales, and some Dolphins! Next time I go I hope I see lots of Dolphins instead of lots of Whales!

The crew was fantastic, informative, professional, experienced, zealous of what they do. They managed the trip exceptionally. We were fortunate to track a whale for an hour, see sea lions, blue shark and best of all, the Dana Point sighting of the Orcas. The crew did a great job in making this a better experience than I ever imagined.

My two friends from Texas and I had the privilege and honor to be on the Dana Wharf whale watching trip that got to experience the pod of Orcas off the coast of Dana Point on January 3, 2012. It is definitely an event that goes in all of our Top Ten Most Exciting Events of our lives. The Captain and staff were outstanding. I wish future watchers the luck that we had to be part of a rare event such as this.

My parents were visiting my house, and I took them to the whale watching trip. Luckily, we could see killer whales, a whale, sea lions, a blue shark, and dolphins. Especially, killer whales are really rare, so we are really lucky.

Lucky trip

The success of our trip was primarily due to the fact that the weather was perfect and pod of orcas showed up. Since orca sightings are rare this far south, even the captain was excited. Still, I would recommend this trip as long as one realizes not every trip gets to see whales.

My trip was a once in a lifetime

I was blessed enough to observe one gray whale on my trip, on 1/3/12

After we viewed the gray fro a while, we went to see what else we might find, and I was blessed, fortunate enough to be on the Dana Pride noon ride, and we found the pod of 10 orcas.

This was my first trip since a kid on a field trip in 3rd grade.

Only downside, was the dude "narrating" the trip never stopped. So for essentially 2 hours, some dude on a loud PA system, was just yackin, and yackin, and..... it was really a downer. Otherwise would have been a 5-star trip.

We spotted a gray whale on the surface just as we were leaving the harbor, then locked on two two grays who were on the surface off the bow for more than an hour. Great views of flukes. When the dolphins came to play, one of the whales surfaced and rolled over. Really a great show.

We made this trip several times before but this was one was the absolute best. We experienced a grey whale, a large pod of dolphins and also the large snub (?) nose ones besides several sea lions.

The previous times we only saw the large dolphins. Explanations of what was going on were constantly given.
