Safe & reliable

We had a good standard experience with Dana Wharf San Clemente. Crew looked professional enough and knowledgeable although it seemed that they are doing the job by the book and obvious lack of enthusiasm and excitement or any encouraging were easy to sense. They had more their energy focused on selling food and drinks. Boat was half full and no extra happy ordinary mood had been practiced by the crew in order to make a nice weather day fabulous. Perhaps we will go next time with them, as far as location and price but we will be more self independent this time. Boat cleaning had been performed while heading back to the dock and this was totally inconvenient and uncomfortable for the passengers. They should clean their boat afterwards or adopt a better system. Generally I would say Staff were not an issue, lack of quality management made them to be like that.

We enjoyed our whale watching adventure. The weather was delightful and the crew knew where to find an abundance of dolphins and whales for us to observe.

Boat trip on Dana Point
Fri, Nov 14, 14   10:00 AM Pearlferret Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This was quite an adventure. There was so much to see, where to begin? Best of all we spotted a humpback whale which was remarkable since it was in November! Another wonderful part of the tour was the large pod of dolphins that were swimming along side the boat. Then another type of dolphin species also joined in the act, swimming out a little farther. The captain of the boat was very informative on the different types of marine life we encountered. We also went by a large buoy that had 6 seals perched on top, & were able to get very close for perfect photo opportunities. I would love to do this again if in the area again.

Our trip was wonderful - easy to book and we left on time. The boat had more than enough room on it for everyone to sit comfortably and see everything that was to be seen. My husband and I took our daughter and her fiancee' and we all had a wonderful time. The captain knew exactly where to go to find marine life. We saw a humpback whale and several hundred common dolphin. The trip would have been relaxing and worthwhile on its own, nut seeing such amazing creatures up close was incredible. Our daughter is a professional photographer and she captured some fabulous shots that will help us to always remember this adventure. WE would most certainly do this again.

Wonderfully enjoyable

My daughter and I, having never been to or on the ocean, loved the whole experience. Can't express how exciting it was to see the two humpback whales!! Could have watched all day, and loved the dolphins swimming with and under the boat. Everything happening was well explained, and it was clear, the crew seemed to be enjoying it as much as we were! I appreciated that after so many years of taking people out to whale watch, it wasn't boring or ho-hum, to them. If you get a chance, I highly recommend this company!!

Great wave riding

I thought the crew was very nice and the boat was well equipped. People never moved so it was a bit hard to move to better viewing areas if you didn't start there. We only saw briefly one small whale, so it was pretty disappointing since we saw on the news there were a lot of whale sightings this year and that is why we booked.

Great Whale and Dolphin Watching Trip

Our trip was exciting as we saw both a humpback whale and a blue whale. The Captain spent extra time following the blue whale and id a great job of telling us about the characteristics of the different whales we were seeing.

We had such a great time on our tour. It was a lot of fun and look forward to doing this again. We will be visiting the Southern California area again in the Spring with our children and grandchildren, we will be booking this tour again, I know the kids will love it. Even though we did not see any whales on our tour, we did see plenty of dolphins and sea lions. It was great to be out on the ocean on such a beautiful day. I can't say enough good about our experience.

awesome experience we got to see Mr.October a hump back whale numerous times on our two hour cruise, he was blowing and breaching.We also saw a few dolphins.The captain went out of his way to make sure we continued to see the whale. I highly recommend taking this cruise, will take the cruise again if we ever get the chance.

Fun

I had fun. Wish you could be told when is the best time to see the whales. They say there isn't but I know there is. These tours are everyday 3 times or more a day. I'm fairly certain you can get an idea of when the whales are out and jumping around. That's my only complaint. Other than that, I had fun and would do it again.

Saw many whales of different types and a school of dolphin that played in the wake of the boat and swam along side. Great time. Perfect weather. Wonderful boat and crew. Great time overall!
