Nice boat and crew

Did not see any whales but plenty of dolphins, if staying at the Dana Point Marriot, it's a five minute walk to the Dana Point Wharf, highly recommend that you go there, plenty of restaurants and must eat at RJ Cafe

This was our third time whale watching. We did not see any whales and not as many dolphin as usual BUT they gave us our ticket back to come another time which I thought was great. Staff was wonderful and the boat ride was worth it too.

poor attempt at finding wahles
Sat, Aug 2, 14   12:00 PM DanielGladys Male 50-59 Local Couple on a Date
They didn't try to find whales outside of the standard, routine route; deck hand acted as if he was doing us a favor for selling us beverages. Been on other whale watching tours that went out of the way to find whale for us to see; we were lucky if we saw 20 dolphins on this tour and the Captain kept circling the same dolphin pod. Unfortunately, everyone wanted to see whales - not dolphins. It was if the Captain expected the whales to come to us. This was not a good outing. definitely will not recommend it to anyone.

Blue Whales!
Mon, Jul 28, 14   5:00 PM Fritzheimer Female 50-59 Combination Family With Children
The boat was clean, the trip to the whales enjoyable... the whales, stunning. All in all, it was a great trip, if only I could have reached out and touched the whales that we saw.

Excellent Family Outing

My son quickly picked it up, even for a first timer, he caught a barracuda and bass. He is asking to go out again. Staff was patient and supportive - overall great day out at sea.

We went out on a Sunday morning on a full boat. The deck crew were very helpful with advice and service in general.

Twilight fishing was a treat!
Sat, Jul 26, 14   5:30 PM Ryanthomas Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Twilight fishing was a enjoyable experience for my family. Weather was perfect, sunset was great, and watching the dolphins and coastline was impressive. Fishing was not that hot but we had a great time anyway!

This was the best birthday present ever!

I have wanted to go whale watching forever and decided I was going to do it for my birthday as a gift to me! Much more than I could have ever expected! We saw more dolphins than I ever had before and we got to see four types of whales and it was a beautiful day! Best time ever and our crew was the best!

family summertime fishing
Sat, Jul 26, 14   6:30 AM Ronparedes Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
the captain was very nice and interacted with all of us customers, but the deckhand Justin was not so nice, was not happy, I noticed when customers needed help Justin would help as if he was mad unhook their fish turn and walk back to his buddies and talk about how stupid some customer are!! When Justin unhooked customers fish he dropped it back in the ocean and walk away with out explaining why to the customers and kids .SAD ! when you take your family out and spend 245.00 dollars you expect some friendly help and understanding. w my family and I like Dana wharf but will try to avoid y boat with the deck hand JUSTIN aboard. thank you the Paredes family.

Upbeat and informative

Exciting for children (mine are teenagers) and adults alike. We went in late July and were able to find many dolphins, alas, no whales.

too cowded, very bad fishing expereince
Sat, Jul 19, 14   5:30 PM hossam Male 50-59 Local Group of Friends
the boat was full and no place to stand and fish, the current made all the robs and fish rods to interfere tons of wasted time, was bad fishing experience, close to the shore and no good preparation for that kind of crowed

The crew and staff were great. Captain did a great job of locating whales and dolphins. He wanted to make sure we enjoyed the trip.
