It was a fun time watching whales. The captain stayed with the 3 whales he spotted the whole cruise. Very enjoyable-we will return.

Whales and Dolphin Galore

We followed two gray whales for about an hour and then had a school of at least 50 dolphin rollick around the boat. We done Dana Wharf Whale Watching at least a half a dozen times and never been disappointed -- but this was the best of the trips.

This was a wonderful experience!

Our time on board was exciting. We saw so many whales that we stopped counting them. Our Captain was very well informed regarding these mammals and provided us with insights and valuable information. We saw two whales breach at the end of our tour . What a wonderful and educational experience.

Customer service via Telephone is the Worst!!!!!!
Sat, Mar 7  12:00 PM pekenia2629 Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
I recently bought tickets and have been trying to book a date for my son and I and the people on the phone have been very rude! This is my first time wanting to go on a fishing trip for my son's birthday and last Saturday was the day we wanted to go and I called a week in advance and was told nothing was available. I was put on a waiting list and to this date have not received a call back. I personally have not been there, have not met the crew, but over the phone was the worst experience ever. I will loose my tickets and book elsewhere because of that simple fact. UPSET MOTHER!!!!

Enjoyable and educational 2 hour tour
Sat, Mar 7  8:00 AM BethHufford Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
The whale watching tour was a great way to start the day, and participate in the Festival of the Whales. The crew was efficient (starting and ending on time), the boat was not too crowded, and we saw whales just a few minutes after leaving the harbor!

Awesome Trip!
Sun, Feb 22  12:00 PM ghemingway Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We enjoyed our whale and dolphin watching trip! We saw a gray whale and followed it for quite a while, then we saw many common dolphins and near the end one (possibly) bottle nosed dolphin. We also saw sea lions.

It would have been more fun to see more whales. The one we followed stayed under for a long time. It would ale one nice if travel time from the dock to the first sight wasn't included in the 2 hours. Same for the return trip. It would be great to actually have two hours of "watching" time. Staff are very knowledgable, friendly, and helpful!

We would do this again!

The Captain together with his crew staff Mike knew where to go and how to spot whales. The Captain was very knowledgeable about whales and explained quite a lot. We had a great time
