We enjoyed our whale watching adventure. The weather was delightful and the crew knew where to find an abundance of dolphins and whales for us to observe.

Our trip was wonderful - easy to book and we left on time. The boat had more than enough room on it for everyone to sit comfortably and see everything that was to be seen. My husband and I took our daughter and her fiancee' and we all had a wonderful time. The captain knew exactly where to go to find marine life. We saw a humpback whale and several hundred common dolphin. The trip would have been relaxing and worthwhile on its own, nut seeing such amazing creatures up close was incredible. Our daughter is a professional photographer and she captured some fabulous shots that will help us to always remember this adventure. WE would most certainly do this again.

A great policy

We were not fortunate enough to see a whale but Dana Wharf has a great policy of issuing a free return visit at your convenience, doesn't expire. Can't do better than that... The boat was clean and comfortable and the crew did everything they could to get us a whale. We would recommend this tour to anyone.

We brought our granddaughters whale watching and they talked about it for days afterwards.

They were so excited to see the whale and the dolphins.

The half-priced whale watching trip out of Dana Point was wonderful. Our captain said that we saw things which he had never seen in his 30+ years of doing these cruises. We saw a humpback whale having fun with a pod of dolphins, following them along, perhaps looking for food. Very comfortable boat with an outstanding crew.

a most memorable day

Although the whales were not to be seen on our excursion, the grandkids squealed with delight as dolphins jumped out of the water. It was the first time for the three of us to view these amazing creatures in their natural habitat. If you're thinking about going...GO!

A cool evening

Our group was from AZ so anything out on the ocean was wonderful.The cool breeze, the chance to see whales, or sharks, or dolphins was enough to please us. It was a beautiful two hours out on the ocean.

I booked for a 3/4 day trip, 1/2 hour before departure an E-mail was send, the boat was full.

Given a choise to go on a 1/2 day boat was taken,

Boat left 15 minutes late and returned 1/2 an hour early. boat stayed at a place no action too long.

Hardly any fish of legal size. It was a lousy bad exsperience

I am never go on another 1/2 day boat out of Dana Point again.

The crew did a great job of locating whales and dolphins. They did their best to give us a good ride and great whale watching. The whole experience was very good and the company employees did a great job of customer service. I highly recommend this cruise.

We had a great time, saw many dolphins and the service was excellent and professional. Our grandkids from the East Coast got a really thrill out of seeing dolphins, sea lions and birds. Took many pictures and will remember our trip for a long time.

Thanks for the trip.
