as Dana Wharf passengers continue to see Blue Whales in the best season
ever for the huge mammals off Dana Point, the season for magnificent
Gray Whales begins Nov. 25 and continues until the end of
April. Dana Wharf offers daily excursions during the whales’ migration
south to view and learn about the huge creatures as they journey toward
the waters of Mexico.
Point is known as a landmark for whale sightings, and Dana Wharf
provides an unforgettable experience to passengers for viewing Gray
Whales during their natural migration.
The “Grays” have
been known to spy hop, breach, and fluke as they make their way toward
warmer waters for the winter. Dana Wharf’s two-hour whale watching
cruises provide the chance to see these beautiful creatures as well as
large pods of dolphin, sea lions, birds and other exciting marine life.
Unlike other marine mammals Gray Whales are only here for a short few
captains narrate each excursion, detailing the whales’ movements
through their natural migration path. Every trip is a new and different
adventure, but all showcase the beauty of the Pacific Ocean world right
here, off the coast of Dana Point.
Excursions depart at 10AM, 12Noon and 2PM daily. Prices
for adults are $32, seniors 55 years and older $27, $19 for kids (ages
3-14), and Children 2 and under are free. Most trips are aboard the
impeccable 95′ Dana Pride, featuring indoor seating and upper deck
viewing areas, a full cash bar and galley snacks served with a smile.
Two hour cruises to view marine life aboard the newest addition to our
fleet, the Ocean Adventures Catamaran, at $42 per adult. Those looking for a deal can come on Tuesday for half price all year long. For reservations, visit or call http://www.danawharf.com/, (800) 979-3370.
