We saw six species of sea life--an elephant seal, sea lions, three types of dolphins (including a pod of mothers swimming with their calfs), and even a Minke whale. The boat handles like a dream--fast and smooth--and the captain gets you "up close and personal" with the animals. The 2-hour time frame is perfect--not too short and not too long. I'd highly recommend it.

Totally worth your time and money. Chris, our captain, did an awesome job of getting us up close and personal to the sea creatures (e.g. sea lions, fish, dolphins). Best of all, we got THISCLOSE to a whale at least 3 times. It was HUGE! I've been...continued

Do not sit in the back as the diesel fumes are overwhelming... There were many people that stood in the front (not just kids; adults too) and monopolized the best views for nearly two hours. The Captain tried to turn the boat so others could see...continued
Quotes & Highlights
Join Dana Wharf Sportfishing, the originator of whale watching in Orange County, on their brand new catamaran for a one-of-a-kind ocean adventure. Guests will stare in awe at whales, dolphins, sea lions, various sea birds, sun fish and maybe even a chance encounter with a shark.
The Blue Whale season runs May – October. Remember that whale watching is year round at Dana Wharf as the Gray Whale migration runs November – April! The Blue Whales are the largest mammal on Earth and can grow to over 100 feet long! Whaling in the 1900’s caused a severe decline in the blue whale population along the Pacific coast of the United States. Once hunting was banned, the blue whale population has slowly started to recover. Before whaling was commercialized, blue whale numbers along the Pacific were estimated to be around 200,000. Today, the blue whale population around the world is estimated to be around 12,000. Approximately 2,000 blue whales call the Pacific coast their home. The blue whale is listed as endangered by the IUCN Red List. These gentle giants are truly an amazing sight to see! Dana Wharf Whale Watching saw 216 Blue Whales last season and each year the number of sightings increases!
