Although we did not see whales, we did see lots of dolphins for a great show! The boat was clean, comfortable, and well managed. Information on what we might see was given by a guide with a charr. I would definitely go again.

I really enjoyed our time on the water and the hundreds of dolphins we saw including a “stampede”. Heads up for those who purchased a Groupon, I was charged an additional $8 to use my Groupon despite the statement on the voucher of of one Whale and Dolphin adult ticket. I was not expecting the additional charge, and I don’t know if I would have purchased at higher rate. My first two bookings were cancelled by the company, but they were willing to work with my schedule for re- booking. I love having this amazing experience so close to home. It was a beautiful day on the water. They did a great job with Covid safety standards.

About Dana Wharf Sportfishing & Whale Watching

Dana Wharf Whale Watching's expert crews and skippers glide their watercrafts on the open seas to soak up sunshine while searching for rare and endangered whales as they migrate 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. Guests can treat their eyes to breathtaking views of the scenic Orange County coastline and the beautiful Pacific ocean while surveying the seascape for natural wildlife. Voyagers can either venture into the boat's full-service galley for a hot meal or bring their own food and nonalcoholic drinks to stave off hunger and resist eating the ocean's jagged, hamburger-shape coral.
