Great Captain!

The captain went out of his way to make sure we saw the whale out that day, and find a pod of dolphins to play/chase us. Thank you captain - we loved the sea adventure on New Year's Eve!

The boat was way too crowded to fish

There were way too many people crammed on that boat. You could hardly cast your line in the cramped space. We were so excited about this but turned out disappointed. The idea is great but the actual trip was a waste of time & money.

not worth the price

Would never pay full price for this. Guides were perfectly pleasant but tour needs more narration to make it interesting.

Great Trip with Helpful Crew

After reading reviews for some other outfitters in the Newport Beach area, we decided to drive south a little bit and give this operation a try. They were fantastic! The crew were enthusiastic about their jobs and genuinely nice, helpful people. My son and I had a great time and I can recommend this outfitter without hesitation!

Saw a fluke
Tue, Sep 10, 13   5:00 PM ljnorth1 Female 50-59 Unspecified Unspecified
We were able to see three or four blue whales. One showed his tale n they call it a fluke. Captain was very informative. The only complaint I have is he put his boat front end to see the whale but if you were on top you couldn't see them . I wished the boat did the whales on the side

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sun, Sep 1, 13   2:00 PM jkcomstock Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
This two hour excursion is just the right amount of time to be out at sea with kids. The Dana Pride arrived and departed on time and they took us to a blue whale feeding spot. We saw a blue whale and several pods of common dolphins. It was a great experience and I would take this trip again during humpback whale season.

Enjoyable two hour adventure

Dana Wharf whale watching lives up to its name. We spotted a mother and calf blue whale in addition to dolphins. The captain provided interesting background on blue whales including why they can now be spotted off Dana Point. An educational and fun day for the entire family.

We had a great time, the boat was extremely clean and well maintained, the crew was awesome, the captain did his best to make sure we saw at least one whale. It's a great local thing to do. Have fun!

4 hours is plenty of fishing for me. Boat caught a lot of fish. Crew was very good and took care of everyone very quickly when they brought a fish on board.

Very informative! The staff was so knowledgable and we were able to get right up to a Blue whale and saw lots of dolphins and other sea animals.
