The Best!

This was my 3rd excursion with these guys and we saw a whale!! Even if we hadn't, it would have been a great day just to be out on the water. The captain stayed with the whale for about an hour of the excursion so there was plenty of opportunity for all to take photos or videos. We've had the same captain every time and he's great! The crew is nice and the boat is clean. We won't go out with any other excursion company. These guys are the best.

Whales must have been at lunch as we saw just small parts of 5 far off and no dolphins. Boat before us got treated to a pod of orcas!

Was soo cool to see all the dolphins, jumping. Was impressed that we saw 4 whales, even though they didn't give us the tail! It was a great time for a great price!

So glad we went with Dana Wharf!
Mon, Jan 16, 12   12:00 PM bbarmore Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
My two sons and I live in in Carlsbad and were hosting relatives from Texas. We picked Dana Wharf for a whale watching trip even though we could have gone to Oceanside Harbor or San Diego. It was a great choice. The boat was clean, the crew friendly and knowledgable, and best of all we not only saw whales, but hundreds of dolphins swimming with the boat. I don't know how rare that is, but it was magical. Didn't know if we could match the experience my relatives had when they were in Hawaii, but they were all smiles. Great day and a great family memory.

Would go again at twice the price!

Awe inspiring! Breathtaking! I smiled the whole time. I was happy just seeing all the dolphins play but to actually spot a whale and see it's tail while hearing a live informative narrative was awesome. I was there with my niece because it was on our bucket list but I would highly recommend it for a date. There's food, a bar and even the NFL on the tv during the trip and it's the smoothest ride.

Exciting Trip

We often take visitors to special things in the area, and whale watching is one of the true highlights. This trip we found and followed a grey whale for about 20 minutes, getting his rhythm, seeing the deep dive with tail flop a number of times. Really exciting. I love it because this is where the whales live; it's not SeaWorld. The boat trip up and down the coast is also very beautiful. I'll be back, alone or with visitors, many times again.

Don't miss this great adventure!

This excursion was WONDERFUL! The captain of the boat worked hard to find us Whales and was very knowledgeable and educational. He maintained a respectable, yet close, distance to the animals. The trip was 2 hours and we were all really sorry to see it end. This is an inexpensive and wonderful way to spend an afternoon and is definitely something I will do again.

We had a great time, the crew is young and very informative and respectful of the sea-life! As the captain saw the different dolphins (common, bottle nose & rizzos) he told us a lot of information of the different species that was very interesting. We also saw a whale and her calf, we really liked how respectful the crew was of the whale "mom" and calf and kept their distance . Wonderful outing and the crew was great!
