We saw a humpback whale

Not only did we see a Humpback whale, we watched dolphins play in the boats current. We also got to see California Sea Lions and many birds. Snacks are offered at a reasonable price. The crew was very friendly.

Deck Hands are best around...

I have been coming out to Dana Wharf since I was a little kid, brought my 6 year old son out (1st timer) out with my Dad for Fathers Day weekend and we had a blast. The young deck hand guy and the main deck hand were awesome. Every time we needed help they were there immediately, so polite, cool and professional. Best eggs sandwiches in town as well! Thanks again guys! See you next summer.

Awesome Time

I bought the fishing trip for an early fathers day present for my husband. He and my sons went out as a father son day, and they couldn't have been more excited about it. They had an amazing time, and the deck hands made sure my youngest one got to reel in at least 1 fish before the days end. It was an amazing time had by all, and we are definitely going to make this more of a routine thing.

Who cares if we didn't see a whale...the crew knew exactly where to go to play with so many dolphins! The swam and jumped and danced behind the boat. We saw mamas and babies. So incredible!

Too early for whales
Thu, Jun 4  12:00 PM marthajohn Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Lots of dolphin seen but we were too early in the year to see any whales. Wish we knew this first but still enjoyed the trip. Very informative.

Outstanding Trip
Tue, Jun 2  12:00 PM Sheanpao Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
I was apprehensive at first, as there are other whale watching tours in Newport Beach that seem to have a lot more clout behind them via their advertising. But we didn't want to drive that far. So we took a chance and booked this tour on a half-price Tuesday. This tour turned out to be utterly outstanding. I will never forget it. The Captain was incredibly educated and involved in the preservation and reverence of these animals. I learned things about them I had no idea of previously. We saw two hump back whales, maneuvered into a pod of over 2000 jumping dolphins... and saw a BLUE WHALE! I am still feeling blessed! The experience was a once in a life time. But you can bet I will come back next year to do it again!

The first time I've ever seen a whale. The captain was extremely helpful and knew everything about the sea life.
