Loved whale watching!
Sun, Apr 1, 12   10:00 AM UMBROBBIE Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We thoroughly enjoyed our whale watching excursion! The crew was great and started by making sure we knew the wind and waves would be a bit rough to make sure we were prepared, though it didn't really bother us. Honestly, it was a pleasure just to be out on the boat which was a good sized ship and was not overly crowded the day we went. As we headed out, they were sure to spend a few minutes pointing out the sea lions on the nearest buoy allowing everyone plenty of time for a good view or picture. The crew mentioned they were coordinating with other ships in the area sharing information on sightings to increase our chance of success despite the less than ideal weather. We were well rewarded! Though we only saw one whale, we were able to get extremely close and lingered for several of the whales' surfacing cycles. We appreciated how informative the crew was and the enclosed galley that offered drinks and snacks for sale. The trip was both relaxing and thrilling and we will definitely go again on our next visit in the area.

no whales, but many entertaining dolphins

the absence of whales was explained by a lack of plankton in the sea this season.

Nice boat, not too crowded and app. 2h is. just the right length for such a trip

I bought tickets for my daughters. They saw sea lions, dolphins, and sea birds. They saw no whales and had their tickets refunded. Completely reasonable and satisfactory. I look forward to taking them out again later this year to spot whales. Dana Wharf might consider cooperating with local general aviation (private and commercial pilots) to ask for spotting reports on where whales are - might improve their chances of spotting whales.

Good quality Captain explained a lot about the whales. He also took us by some common dolphins which was a lot of fun.

Whale Watching

This trip was not just for "whale watching." We had the chance to see bottlenose dolphins, sea lions, and seals. We were lucky we found whales towards the end of the trip. It was an awesome site to behold. The trip was very relaxing and they did a wonderful job. As the boat took off there was one family almost left behind. They were running late. However, they reverse the boat & pick them up. It goes to show they care about their customers more than money.

I've done a good amount of sportfishing trips and their crew did one of the best jobs I have ever experienced. They were knowledgable, courteous, and very helpful for the skilled and unskilled fishermen.

We followed a humpback whale and then found a couple large groups of dolphins. The staff were friendly and the on-board food/drink made the trip perfect.

The whole day was amazing, a good size boat with little rocking with the waves. We spotted a Fin back whale with in the first two minutes, and group of dolphins that played very close to the close for a good amount of time and made for some great pictures.

Good trip! Would definitely do again!

I would certainly reccomend this outfit and would definitely do this trip again. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The boat was clean as well as the bathroom. We did a half day trip that started at 6:30 am and therefore avoided a crowded boat. Fishing conditions that day were not the best, but the captain did manage to put us on some sand bass and calico bass where I was able to land about 5-6 fish and make the trip worthwhile in respect to fishing. The staff serves up an excellent breakfast burrito, breakfast sandwich or a breakfast plate, and is very reasonably priced on all food and beverages on the boat. All in all, good times, I am glad I booked this trip while visiting from Texas and would not hesitate to do so again.

We saw 1 grey whale but many, many dolphins. The explanations from the Captain were excellent. We learned a lot about these creatures. When we are in the area again, we will make another whale watch excursion. Thanks !!
