Saw a majestic gray whale and numerous beautiful dolphins. It was peaceful to be on the water. The captain worked hard to find and follow the whale. Staff was friendly.

We saw more than expected!

We saw more than 20 dolphin right up to and under the boat. We had two whales that surfaces half a dozen times each and our captain was very aware of giving the whales space but positioning the boat for us to see the whales in detail. Great trip and will certainly go again if we have the chance.

We had a great time on the cruise. It was both fun and educational. We were lucky and did get to see the blue whales while we were out. Amazing! Thanks for a great afternoon!

Best experience we had on our California vacation!

Our family was excited to learn that Tuesdays were 1/2 price with this company on our vacation at the beginning of July 2013. It was a perfect excursion to take after a long day at Disneyland the day before. We had the amazing opportunity to have a large group of dolphins swim alongside the boat with us for a long time. That would have been enough to satisfy our land-locked family from New Mexico! However, the appearance of a majestic blue whale for about 4 surface visits while he was feeding was beyond imagination. The captain's description of these amazing creatures captivated and educated all of my family (my husband and I, our 17 year old son, and our 13 year old daughter). After we returned home, I heard my husband and each of my children going on and on about our "whale-watching trip"... Disneyland was mentioned briefly but THIS was definitely one of our most treasured memories from this vacation. You won't regret it!

Highlight of our vacation!

We've been out with this crew twice. Both times were wonderful! On the last trip we saw hundreds of dolphins. Some were riding the bow and I literally got splashed from one dolphin's spray. Three years later my kids still love telling this story. Our most recent trip was very windy and choppy, but completely worth the rough ride as we saw a blue whale and her calf. The captain and crew were all so knowledgeable and friendly (particularly Steve was right on the bow with us and just as excited). We are planning to make this a yearly excursion.

This was the second time for me.....we were lucky enought to see a "mega pod" of dolphins, a Minke whale and a sunfish....The boat captain was really into it and very knowledgeable. Seeing that many dolphins is something I will never ever forget....Best day ever

Always a great experience

Even though we have been able to see dolphins every time we have taken the whale watching cruise we have never seen a whale and that's okay because it is always a wonderful sea adventure anyway. We just completed our third trip with Catamaran and highly recommend it to anyone who what to spend two glorious hours out on a boat. You have a great time seeing all the sea life around you and to experience the dolphins jumping in the wake of the boat is incredible. Go for the experience and if you are lucky enough to see a whale, then that's just icing on top of the cake.

Best money spent in Southern California!

Though we are local, we had family in from Upstate New York. The group ranged in age from 10 to 70. The eldest was in a wheelchair. Every person had a blast and didn't stop talking about it for the rest of the trip. The crew helped my aunt in the wheelchair down and up the ramps. My uncle didn't have to do a thing. They are all super nice and enthusiastic. We all had a great time!

Crew makes it happen.

The only complaint I have about my trip on 6/24/2013 is that they did not rotate fishermen back to the stern. Since most of the fish were caught back at the stern, rotating would have been good. nevertheless, the two largest bass landed were caught on the port side. Fish volume however, was at the stern. This crew was light years ahead of the crew we had last year at Davey's Locker in Newport Beach. Go with Dana Wharf if you have a choice. It does not matter how many fish you catch if the crew is great. And the crew is great at Dana Wharf.

Our group had mix of locals and vacationers. We saw several sharks, barracudas and a mix of fish we had never seen being caught and some released. The staff was very nice and helpful which made it easy to ask questions and get assistance. We had a light windbreaker,could have used heavier coat.
