Took a whale watching trip with family and small children. This trip was really enjoyable. Not crowded and even though we did not see whales, we saw lots of Dolphins. The crew was very knowledgable and was ready to answer questions and provided great service! Really enjoyed when the staff provided live music by singing and playing the ukulele! The kids were dancing and singing along while watching the Dolphins riding the bow. The whole family had lots of fun! I would highly recommend taking a whale watching trip with Dana Wharf! It was an incredible experience!

Great Intro to Fishing

My Dad, Husband, Son (6 years old) and I had a great time on this fishing trip! It was the first time fishing for my 6 year old. Unfortunately, my Dad and Son didn't catch a fish but we all had a really fun time. Everyone was very nice and helpful. My son won a prize in the raffle before we left the dock. He loved it!

The staff were so kind and polite. I am so very impressed with their patience and dedication. We caught a huge yellowtail, but it would have been fun even if we didn't. Thank you to all.

Fantastic outing
Fri, Jul 24  2:00 PM patcefalu Female 60-69 Combination Family With Children
This trip was amazing and well worth the money. Although, it is not "whale season" we were lucky to have two humpback whales playing alongside our boat......and then there were the dolphins! First we saw a small school of them and then a much larger school that were frolicking and showing off right next to our boat. Great crew .... great couple of hours out on the water! Loved the entire experience. Our group was 4 1/2 months, 2 1/2 years and 4 adults 30-72....everyone loved it! The baby took an extra long nap since he was rocked to sleep!! Thank you for a perfect afternoon!

We'd recommend this outing to anyone coming to Laguna or Dana Point. The best excursion we did here!! We will treasure this memory for the rest of our lives. It was a magical experience being surrounded by dolphins and whales.

Great captain, found lots of sea life.
Tue, Jul 21  12:00 PM Paintngrl Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
Captain educated us about all the wildlife we saw on our trip. We saw lots of different types of whales, common dolphins, and a sea lion. We were in communication with other boats to find exactly where all the whales were so we didn't leave disappointed. Great adventure from start to finish. Highly recommend.
