Wonderful experience

The captain first told us when we got on the boat that only one whale was seen that afternoon. I was wondering whether we would see anything at all. Shortly into the trip, however, we ran into a large group of dolphins and they played in the wake of the boat! Right after that, a large fin whale was spotted north of us so we headed up to see him. He spouted a few times as we watched in awe. Right before we were going to turn in, the captain asked if anyone needed to be back on time. No one did, so he took us south to catch a pod of three grey whales migrating up the coast! Overall, it was a great experience and we were fortunate to see as much marine life as we did.

Highly Recommend a trip from Dana Wharf

The people at Dana Wharf never fail to make it a memorable experience for all. The Captain and crew are very knowledgeable and the usually have a Naturalist from the Orange County chapter of the American Cetaceans Society to answer questions and educate the passengers.

I think the Captain was great, very knowledgeable and offered great insights. I was disappointed though that we didn't see as much as I would have liked (3 grey whale, the way it was advertised is that there are huge sightings of marine life every day). I understand that this is out of your control. I was very grateful that there were fewer people on the tour though and it wasn't congested because it makes it so difficult to really see with congestion onboard. I was pleased to get a 50% discount and will come again.

First So. Cal party boat trip
Mon, Mar 9, 15   10:00 AM T8ter1 Male 60-69 Local Unspecified
Crew was great! Fish I caught were small, but that's okay with me for this close to shore type of deal. Has got to be a lot pressure on the Calicos as heavy as they are fished here. If you are interested in a fun day on the water and don't care about a trophy or a bunch of meat for the table this is you trip.

Our trip was wonderful! Our Captain very informative with knowledge about sea lions, dolphins and whales. We saw sea lions, dolphins and several whales. He drove a long way to ensure we saw a pod of whales. Very exciting for all on board!

It was a Decent trip.

The trip was ok. It was just a bad timing. What do I mean? Well when I went, the weather was cold. And it was not a stable fishing experience. I fished before and I caught lots of fish but in this trip, I didn't catch anything. But my cousin did. And he was new to fishing. So I guess he had the newbie luck. By ill go again. Just in a better time of weather. But the employees are AWESEOME! They let me borrow a pole when mine broke. So I tiped them good:)

Boring
Fri, Feb 27, 15   10:00 AM drvicki Female Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
I was very excited to see many whales since this has been a very rich season of whale sightings. We saw a few dolphins around the boat as we were leaving which was great. Then the search for whales... for a long time. We saw two or three whales, but no breaching or anything exciting. We could barely make out their bodies as they were gliding in the water. Mostly just beautiful views of the coastline, where I live in Laguna. Also, the constant talking of the person guiding us got annoying after awhile. It was difficult to hear him clearly, and it mostly seemed like a distraction from our not seeing many whales or anything worthwhile. I wouldn't recommend this trip. Sorry.

Didn't see any whales!!
Sun, Feb 15, 15   2:30 PM irina86 Female 20-29 International Tourist(s) Unspecified
We booked this tour in the hopes of seeing whales. However, going into the sea, there was so much fog and it was so windy and cold that it was impossible to see something. If you are standing in the back of the boat, you can barely hear anything the tour guide was saying.

On the way back we saw some dolphins which was nice. The tour organization gave us free passes for next time, since we didn't see any whales. However, we wont be coming back again.

The place is amazing itself and the crew is cool

The trip was really good. The crew is always there to help. I'd recommend easily for anyone that wants a sunset in the sea with dolphins and whales.

It might be a good trip for kids also, the whole family would enjoy and take amazing pics.

Great job guys!
