The management (folks in the office) were rude and unprofessional. The guys on the boat were great.

A great way to spend an afternoon - our guide was incredibly interesting, gave us lots of information on everything we were seeing. The half-price day made it affordable, too. Well worth the sunburn :)

This is the Family & Friends Time Slot
Sun, Apr 28, 13   12:45 PM rkrugel Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
While I have gone out with Dana Wharf before, and will continue to do so, as well as recommend them, I will not go out on this time slot again. The boat was packed, with a large number of kids. If you did not want to fish while dodging small children, or patiently untangle lines, the this specific package is NOT for you.

I look forward to going out on a 6am or twilight trip soon!

Whale watching at Dana Point
Sun, Apr 28, 13   10:00 AM ekrli2005 Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We borded the boat Dana Pride on time. Left harbor on time. Saw three types of dolfins. In the past with this company I did see whales. This time unfortunately we did not, so they gave us back our tickets to use another time. Wonderful.

What a great trip! I went because of my parents, and I'm glad I did. We all had a great time. The crew was awesome. The captain was very knowledgeable, and kept the trip fun and interesting. Iwill certainly recomend it to all my friends

it was a nice boat ride
Sat, Apr 20, 13   2:00 PM 438garner Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The boat was well maintained and clean and appeared to be a sturdy vessel. The captain was interactive and cordial with the group on the boat. However, he couldn't find much for us to look at. So I would not call my experience a whale watching tour but more a nice 2 hour boat ride.

First visit to the west coast
Thu, Apr 18, 13   12:00 PM tommarie Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
Nice boat. Clean, well kept, friendly captain and crew, saw whales and lots of dolphins. Actually went two days in a row. The first day was great and when they handed us a 1/2 price offer to go again....we signed up for the next day!

The crew was awesome, although the water was choppy the day we went, the crew made the best of it and we did see a mother fin whale and her calf!

Exciting
Sun, Apr 14, 13   10:00 AM gregmitchell Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I really enjoyed this trip. Even though we didn't see any whales, it was still fun. Since we didn't see any whales, they gave our ticket back to come another time. I would do it again in a heart beat. Very exciting

Dana Wharf Sportsfishing

Had a good day. Caught 8 rock cod. The skipper and crew of 'Reel Fun' were very helpful and social with the fishermen and children on the charter.

The captain was well spoken and explained the life cycle of the Whales and Dolphins in a manner that the young children could understand and relate to.

Whale Watching
Thu, Mar 28, 13   10:00 AM robertfishn Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I would highly recommend this company to others for whale watching. The guide was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about the whales. It certainly helped that we saw whales within 20' of the boat but beyond that I felt it was a great crew that would make the most of every trip out.

Well worth it
Wed, Mar 27, 13   10:00 AM Ruckdeschel Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Whales are right off shore so no long trek out to sea. Boat commodious. Bloody Mary's available for those with children (and food for kids as well). Very persistent crew in finding and tracking whales. Good commentary
