Whale and Dolphin Watching Tour
Visitors will take a voyage with Orange County’s original whale-watching company during this two-hour tour. Riders on one of Dana Wharf’s many vessels often see whales, dolphins, and sea lions while embracing the majestic coastline of Dana Point. Expert marine naturalist captains narrate all these excursions.
About the Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Seasonally we see over 1500 Gray Whales; in the summer, we see Blue Whales. Year-round, we see Fin Whales, Minke Whales, Humpback Whales, and sharks. Every trip is a new experience, so be sure to come out often! Whale Watching season is year-round, and marine mammal sightings are guaranteed, meaning that if you do not see a whale OR dolphin, we’ll give you a voucher for a free trip that never expires!
