Check in and locating where to was a breeze. We stood in the front bow of the Ship and got to see the coast and wildlife. We were fortunate to see a whale. The Captain was fantastic, fun and informative.

The Captain and crew didn't give up until we saw whales. The weather was poor with big waves but we had a great time. My kids won't forget seeing the Whales and Dolphins and I think they will have a better appreciation of the ocean.

I brought my family out to Dana Point for the whale tour and was not disappointed. We got to follow a large Gray whale and seen the sea lions. What really impressed me was the tour guide and the knowledge he shared I left learning at least 10 new things about whales that I did not know...

Thank you

We had such success and such a good time that we decided to stay an extra day and repeat the experience! We say many whales, many, many porpoises, and Harbor seals. Thanks for a great experience.

The captain found whales and a few dolphin. The boat was clean and the captain and crew were professional and helpful. Great trip and experience for my child and myself. We'll take this trip again with other family members for sure!

The fish weren't biting much. The deck hands could have been more help to the novce fisher man. Not sure I will return.

Had a great day whale watching with Dana Wharf as our guide. It was a fun day with the crew working hard to give us all a great experience. We saw two grey whale a ton of dolphin and a couple seals. Dana Wharf went out of there way to make sure we every opportunity to see all we could. Definetly will take this cruise on our next trip.

Excellent experience, excellent customer service!
Wed, Dec 17, 14   2:00 PM Balmoral Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We had a windy day and some rain to boot. We did not see much and the crew gave us tickets to come back for another free whale watching tour. I have been on this tour before and have seen blue whales, tons of dolphins and large groups of seals and sea lions. As long as the weather is sunny the animals cooperate! I will always return to this group and will refer anyone I can. Thank you!

It was a lovely trip. Unfortunately we did not see any whales. However the captain and crew were very informative and showed us a number of other ocean inhabitants. Also because we did not see any whales, we received credit to do another trip any time in the future. Just a great group to work with!

Best Sport Fishing Outfitter Around!
Mon, Dec 1, 14   10:00 AM frankie088 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We were very pleased with the staff on board our fishing boat -- they were efficient, helpful, and friendly. We would have liked to have gone out into deeper waters but the weather did not cooperate and unfortunately my husband and daughter both became seasick. We spoke with a few of the weekly regulars who said this was the best outfit in the area and after the service we received we would have to agree. I had a wonderful time and my daughter enjoyed feeding the seagulls, pelicans, cormorants, and loons with the leftover bait as we sailed back into the harbor!

Safe & reliable
Wed, Nov 26, 14   10:00 AM Portiva Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We had a good standard experience with Dana Wharf San Clemente. Crew looked professional enough and knowledgeable although it seemed that they are doing the job by the book and obvious lack of enthusiasm and excitement or any encouraging were easy to sense. They had more their energy focused on selling food and drinks. Boat was half full and no extra happy ordinary mood had been practiced by the crew in order to make a nice weather day fabulous. Perhaps we will go next time with them, as far as location and price but we will be more self independent this time. Boat cleaning had been performed while heading back to the dock and this was totally inconvenient and uncomfortable for the passengers. They should clean their boat afterwards or adopt a better system. Generally I would say Staff were not an issue, lack of quality management made them to be like that.
