Had a wonderful whale watching trip. The crew was great. We were lucky enough to get to see and follow a pod of 5 grey whales. It was amazing!

We've vacationed in the area the last 3 years in February. We always take a whale watching trip. On all trips we have seen whales. One trip the boat was surrounded by hundreds of dolphins, playing in the boat wake. Large boat so it has a good ride. Tuesday's are 1/2 price. Highly recommend this trip!

Went out fishing for my first time by myself and had an awesome time. Everyone was so helpful and it made me want to go back as much as possible.

On a recent Disney family trip we decided to take a break from Anaheim and booked this whale watching tour with a Groupon. The staff was so knowledgeable, kind, attentive ans really took pride in their work. We had an active 1 and 3 yr old with us and choose to stay in the cabin for most of the visit... More

Saw lots of dolphins. They followed the boat and were quite entertaining. Captain did not give up and we did see a couple of whales up close, even though we had to stay out a bit longer to see them. Highly recommend!

My family had a FABULOUS time on the 1/2 Day fishing trip with Dana Wharf. The crew was very helpful and wonderful. It was my 15 yr old daughter first time fishing and she had a great time! My family is stoke about future fishing trips!!! Thank you Dana Wharf Sportfishing!

We went in February and didn't see much but probably because the weather was so bad so I would just suggest take that in consideration. We couldn't see very beyond the boat for the fog and we were freezing and wet!

we saw several dolphins and several whales and they also explained about the wildlife in general. The boat was not too crowded and the flow getting on and off was done smoothly. I thought it would be a mass product and I was very pleasantly pleased.
