What You'll Get


A recent survey ranks whales’ bellies ahead of safety-deposit boxes and mattresses as the preferred place to store valuables. Experience one of nature’s most priceless resources with this Groupon to Dana Wharf Whale Watching in Dana Point. Choose between the following options:

  • For $16, you get one gray-whale-watching tour ticket (up to a $32 value).
  • For $19, you get a gray-whale-watching package (up to a $39.95 total value), which includes:
  • One gray-whale-watching tour ticket (up to a $32 value)
  • One copy of The Amazing Adventures of Captain Don!, a children’s book by Donna Kalez (a $7.95 value)<p>

Dana Wharf Whale Watching’s expert crew and skippers glide their watercrafts across the open seas so visitors can soak up sunshine and beautiful coastal views. Departing at 10 a.m., noon, and 2 p.m., schooners take to the briny deep in search of rare and endangered gray whales migrating south to avoid tax season. Expert captains steer crafts through frothy spumes and narrate each trip, educating passengers on the abundant life beneath the glassy waters. While surveying the seascape for natural wildlife, tour-goers can treat their eyes to breathtaking views of the scenic Orange County coastline and the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Voyagers can bring their own food and nonalcoholic drinks to stave off hunger or venture into the boat’s full-service galley for a hot meal (not included in today’s deal).

Those opting for the second package will also receive a copy of Donna Kalez’s The Amazing Adventures of Captain Don!, with which youngsters can remember their whale-watching adventures. This Groupon is valid during gray-whale season (through April), which often includes cameos from leaping bottlenose dolphins and clownfish performing standup comedy.
