Great two hour sail
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)

I had a good time on my whale watching trip - the day was beautiful and we saw dolphins. Unfortunately, we didn't see any whales. But true to their promise, the Dana Wharf company gave everyone on board a free ticket for a future trip. The boat was a bit crowded (it was Spring Break) so I would recommend getting in line early to guarantee yourself a good spot on the boat. (Seating is very limited unless you don't mind being inside.) The crew was knowledable, but unfortunately they did not give a lot of information over the loudspeaker. If you got lucky and were close to the crew on deck they did have a lot of information to share.

whale watching in dana point
Mon, Feb 15, 10   2:00 PM sukchoi Female 50-59 Local Individual
when i went whale watching, i saw some sea lions hanging out and basking in the sun. i took some pictures and we went deeper into the water. Later, we saw some common dolphins playing in the water. i tried to take some pictures, but they were too fast. i managed to take some pictures of them jumping. we didnt see a whale though, so we headed back to the docks. on our way back, we saw more dolphins. we got to the docks.

Amazing Anniversary Trip!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

My husband and I took this cruise for our 3rd wedding anniversary. It was absolutely amazing! I know a lot of it is circumstancial, but we saw 2 blue whales on our trip!!!!! One of them was almost right next to boat. One of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. The crew was also very nice and informative and we learned a lot about the whales. It was also nice that the crew was very strict about some small children that were being loud and obnoxious. They quieted them down so everyone else could enjoy the trip. It was much appreciated :)

So much fun, we did it again 2 days later

While we didn't see any large whales, the crew made sure to find us a great little pod of Rizzo dolphins and a few bottlenoses - it was great fun! We went out again two days later, again no large whales, but common dolphins everywhere - it was a blast to watch those little guys swim along with the boat, so close they actually splashed you when they jumped from the water!

A Pleasant Nature Jaunt
Wed, Jan 22, 14   12:00 PM Suegrim Female 60-69 Local Couple on a Date
An enjoyable afternoon perusing Dana Point's Harbor for wildlife is a must. We viewed and followed 2 gray whales, watching them fluke and dive. In addition the dolphins seemed to frolic as they jumped on the boat's wake following us as we heads to shore. Sea lions rested on buoys in the harbors and played in the marina. Gulls and pelicans abounded as we boated, making the mellow afternoon complete. After the cruise, we wander shop, ate some smoked fish, and had a delicious dinner. There's lots to see in Dana Point.

Great trip.

The whole trip was great. Weather was great, fishing was even better. Lots of keepers and just as many fun to reel in throw-backs. Captain and deck hand were really terrific as always.
