We had a wonderful time. We were able to watch 8 different whales during our journey. The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend this trip.

Hundreds and hundreds of dolphins all around the boat. You could almost reach out and touch them. Then we followed a grey whale for almost an hour as it teased us from all directions. An absolutely breathtaking experience!

We only saw one whale (a gray whale), but you really only need one. It was absolutely breathtaking and magical to witness this animal on its southern migration.
 
Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching responded:
We are so happy you got to see a whale on your trip! We should be seeing a lot more on their northern migration. Thanks for the great review and hopefully we will see you again soon!

After Christmas Day whale watching

There was big wind, so that the boat was bumping in the wave for a while, a little bit scary but also exciting, provided that we all safely come back. We were able to see same dophines and birds when come close to the coast. Pick a good weather if you plan for the trip.

Amazing day and spectacular views
Sun, Dec 6, 15   10:00 AM Hbertsch Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We were lucky enough to spot a Humpback Whale. No grey whales yet but seeing this one was a once in a lifetime opportunity. The captain and mate were so full of stories and energy, they made it so much fun. We followed dolphin pods and got a great view of the sea lions too.

What a great time!

Had a great time. we saw lots of dolphins, and sea lions, and we thought that was sufficient to meet their guarantee, however because we didn't see whales, they gave us a pass for a future ride. Staff was great adn knowledgeable, and the boat was clean.

Fabulous!

A whale watching trip with Dana Wharf is always wonderful. Friendly, professional, helpful staff and always a great experience, regardless of what we see - or don't. We have been many times over many years. We recently went with another firm as Dana Wharf had no availability and it was a huge disappointment - we barely left the coastline.

I couldn't recommend Dana Wharf more highly.

Whale watching tour
Sun, Nov 22, 15   10:00 AM visitoc Female 30-39 Combination Family Without Children
The boat was large & clean! I usually get sea sick but this was a very smooth ride, even when moving at higher speeds. Polite staff - but they mostly kept to themselves. Announcements were continually made as to where & what to look for. They were able to direct the boat to areas with MANY dolphins, & even though the time of the trip was running out, they carefully followed a young whale so we could all see it before heading back. I got many pictures of dolphins and once home & viewing pics on the computer - I believe I got a whale pic too!

an unforgettable experience

This is something not to be missed on a trip to California. Although we did not get to see any whales it has whetted our appetites to come back again in the hope that we see some next time. The boat trip was first class and very informative. I would thoroughly recommend.

Beautiful vistas, knowledgeable crew

Perhaps random luck, but it was a picture perfect, 70 degree day with calm seas. The whales apparently had other things to do, but we were quite happy to enjoy the common dolphins and the seals.

Comfortable, interesting observation of the ocean

Although we didn't see whales, we did see a Hammerhead shark and plenty of Dolphin. I was pleased with the trip and the crew.
