Excellent experience. Wonderful Crew!

We want to thank you all for the wonderful experience. The crew was tierless in their patience of our novice abilities. I know it is always hard to controll a large group but a reminder to the guests about families with children may help keep some of the language in a more appropriate zone for kids.

Thanks again!

Boat was clean, comfortable.

Boat staff were very pleasant, friendly and very informed!!! They were great to spend the afternoon with.

We really enjoyed the trip.

My group consisted of my husband and I, our 21 year old son and our 28 year old niece.

This was a fun way to spend an afternoon and next time we are in California I would like to do this again or try the sportsfishing.

The one thing that I do think could have been better would be the staff at the ticket counter. They oould have been friendlier.

The staff on the boat were very friendly and helpful. When my fishing pole broke, one of the crew let me use his.

My family had a great time.

My husband and myself try to go ocean fishing atleast one time a month. Our favorite boat is Sum Fun. We usually catch some fish and the captain and crew is great. Very polite and knowledgeable. I would recommend Dana Wharf Fishing to anyone.

A lovely day

We didn't see whales on this trip but we saw a pod of dolphins that were very entertaining. I got a lot of good photos. The weather was perfect but DO follow the recommendations to wear several layers of clothing. It was cold enough to need two jackets and a hood but we were in our tee shirts later that day. Also, consider taking Dramamine before you go. The up and down of the boat is just enough to make you a little queasy.

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

Making this excursion by boat made for a different experience. We saw several whales from a distance and were able to approach closely enough to see them blow and dive. Really topnotch adventure.

Luck and Preparation
Fri, Aug 12, 11   12:00 PM susanekholm Female 60-69 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We were lucky to see blue whales at very close range. The catamaran was easily manueuvered into range; the ocean was exceptionally clear (and apparently tasty, judging by the number of whales feeding in the area). The catamaran was not crowded, so we could see from every angle. The naturalist was helpful, but I did not like the rock music playing onboard throughout the visit.

Well, it was a nice boat ride - and narration. Got pretty close to seals and saw dolphins. The captain persisted in looking for whales, but we never saw any - but I liked the fact that he tried.

If only the whales had cooperated.
Sun, Dec 20, 09   12:00 PM susan25 Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The boat trip alone is great, but it would have helped if the whales had cooperated and been present. We did see some California sea lions and the discussion about them and how they are different from seals was informative. We didn't see any other marine life except for sea birds until the very end when the boat ran thru some bait fish being chased by some dolphins. There was a potential sighting of a whale, but it was already too far behind us as we entered the harbor and we couldn't take the time to verify what it was. The captain made sure that we had the opportunity to go out again free of charge, which he really didn't have to do.

Always a blast

My wife and I have done the Valentines Whale watching tour every year for the past 5 years and have always had a blast. The staff is super knowledgeable and friendly. The view is so spectacular that even if we don't see a whale we always feel like we got our money's worth. We live in Long Beach and there is another whale watching cruise within walking distance of our house but we drive all the way down to Dana Point for this one because we love it so much. Definitely recommended
