Great trip. The best whale watching boat. If you don't see a whale they will give you A ticket/coupon to go again for free. We saw two whales, a school of dolphins and sea lions.

Our cruise was a bit rocking due to the wind, but it was so fun and our captain was very knowledgable and clearly enjoys what he does!! We were out for 90 min, saw soo many dolphins, but could not get out pass the point due to the choppy seas. But we got "whale checks" and are going again this weekend. Plus 50% off our next cruise!!

You just can't beat that !

The weather was cold and foggy but the trip was so much fun! We saw two gray whales. We watched the whales for about an hour. There was great narration and the facts were so fun to hear. We saw some "local" dolphins and some seals. It was a very great experience and we plan to do it again very soon.

Captain sounded doubtful at first that we would have any whale sightings. We saw some dolphins but the boat was going too slow to really watch them bow ride. We finally saw some whales breaching, which was fantastic. I just wish the captain didn't keep turning the boat to get the whales only on the right side, when we spotted them on the left side of the boat and that's where we were sitting to get pictures.

Good trip overall though.

I would like to suggest if you can improve your inside setting bench bit lower will be more safe for elder people. My parent and other couple fall down from bench when they get up from the seat. Also the cushion is slippery not steady. Rest of activity is very good.

Family with elderly and disabled
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)

We were delighted to be able to sit at tables on the upper deck with our large group of 9 adults and 1 infant. One of the adults was elderly (83 and walking with a cain), and the other is disabled (needs a brace on her leg), so the tables were perfect. The only problem was that when we spotted a whale, the captain kept the boat angled straight towards the whale the entire time. Because of this, those of us on top (especially those who were unable to stand up and move around as quickly as other eager whale watchers) were unable to see the whale because of the cabin. In fact, it was very difficult to see the whale at all because of the cabin. My only suggestion would be that the captain remember to turn the boat sideways so that everyone can see the sea creatures. Otherwise, don't expect to see much of anything from up top. Overall it was a fun trip. I would recommend going, but probably not with anyone who can't walk around quickly on their own.

Great day for wildlife!

Picked an awesome day, weather was amazing, saw 3 whales (although lots of people were out in boats due to the awesome weather, so the whales were not so social, and we also ran into a huge (1,200) pack of dolphins that were very social, playing in the boat's wake made for great photos! would definitely do it again

We didn't see any whales for almost 1.5 hours. At that point we saw many, and so they actually extended the tour so we could view them longer. That was unexpected and appreciated.

The lower area of the boat where the snack bar is could be upgraded a little. It's not a very nice area. I'm sure most people stand outside, but if you want a place to sit for a while it should be a little nicer.

Fun and exciting!

The cost for the trip is in line with other whale watching trips I've experienced. We saw two gray whales and were able to follow them for about 30 minutes. We also saw a group of sea lions on one of the buoys a short distance from the harbor. We did not see any dolphins on this trip. The narrator was very informative not only about the gray whales we saw, but also about Dana Point in general. Overall, the ride, by itself, was amazing! I highly recommend the Dana Warf Whale Watching trip.

Not long enough for money paid

Two hours of dealing with private boaters, saw two whales from a distance and nothing else. Wasn't worth the money paid.
