A delightful day for all ages. Watched a mother and calf that we came across three different times - and very close to boat. Good info from capt and lots of willingness from weekend volunteer.

The captain was very sincere and friendly. He seemed to have a passion for the ocean and was very knowledgeable. We came back to the dock a little late because he stuck around waiting for a blue whale to come up. We had 2 sightings!

The Dana Wharf offers a fantastic whale watching experience. On my most recent trip I had spectacular views of 2 blue whales. The captain was extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend this trip!
