Excellent Adventure

The staff at Dana Point Whale Watching were on schedule, knowledgable, and always eager to answer questions and assist their passengers. Did not see the sea life we wanted, but that is just a chance you take on these type of adventures. Dana Point Whale Watching staff are mindful of their guests desire to experience the sea life and offer return excursion tickets absolutely free with no expiration. KUDOS!

Enjoyed the trip

It was very enjoyable. The only thing that would have made it more so would have been if we saw more whales. We were able to see the humpback whale. It surfaced many times. It was majestic. The sheer number of dolphins was mind boggling.

This was a delightful experience. The Captain and crew put in a lot of effort to make our cruise enjoyable and successful. The Whales were fascinating.

We had a group of 9. Ages between 13 and 68. All enjoyed the adventure. We only saw dolphins the day we went out. But, we saw hundreds of them. They followed the boat and would jump right next to the boat. We all enjoyed the experience.

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.

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!
