Excellent tour.

We saw plenty of whales. The captain extended the tour to allow us a fantastic final look at a blue whale that just surfaced within 50 yards of the boat on the way back. That was great.

The boat ride was great, unfortunatly due to weaher conditions the sea was rough and we didn't see any whales or dolphins etc. The company gave us back our tickets to use another day.

Although we didn't see any whales, we were rewarded with seeing pods of dolphins with infants! The Captain was very well informed and gave a great tour.

Morning and late afternoon, but not night
Sat, Aug 17, 13   5:30 PM daniel2 Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
Sum Fun was too small a boat and was too crowded. Several people got sick, at night. Then, especially when the boat begins to rock and heave through the swells, sea sickness becomes prevalent since the horizon line is no longer visible. Our last two fishing excursions were on the Dana Pride, a much bigger boat, with half the fishermen. Both of those trips were far more enjoyable.

OK
Sat, Aug 17, 13   5:30 PM karenschwimm Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Crew was very nice and helpful. Fishing was very poor. Only 3 real (keeper) fish caught by entire group of 50-60 people, and they were small. My son did catch 3 mackerels that we threw back. Since it was his first fishing trip, he thought it was pretty cool. I'm not a fisherman and thought the trip got to be a little long. Boat moved quite a bit to find fish, but there wasn't much out there. Food on board was decent and inexpensive.

Great time to see Marine life

Now is the perfect time to see whales, dolphin, and sea lions off the California coast. The Dana Wharf Catamaran Whale Watching Cruise truly exceeded our expectations of providing a spacious boat, a friendly crew, and numerous encounters with marine life. The 2 hour cruise was sufficient to see everything we wanted, plus some we hadn't expected. I'd recommend the excursion to any age group.

The best whale watch ever!!!
Tue, Aug 13, 13   5:00 PM daisygargoyl Female Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Our whole group was so excited when we first spotted the mother and baby whale. The dolphins were so close to our boat it was amazing! Our captain was so informative and fun. We even caught a glimpse of a sunfish! We're still talking about it. It was enormous! We will definitely be back! Thank you so much for a great time!

Really Nice Time
Sun, Aug 11, 13   10:00 AM kochfam Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My wife and I love boats, so we booked a Whale Watching tour. For the money, this is a great deal. Two full hours on a really nice and big boat, full cash bar and enough rail room for everyone. Saw one (maybe two, not sure if the second one was the same) blue whale(s), a seal, and a school of white Risso dolphins. Captain Frank was very knowledgable and entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour.

We had a great time. We had our 3 daughters with us ages 12,.9 & 5. We saw 2 wales, several dolphins and seal lions. One of the highlights of our week in California! The boat was very clean and captain was very knowledgeable.
