Ocean Adventures, Whale Watching in SoCal

Whether Southern California is home to you or a temporary home for vacation, you will love all the area has to offer.  One of the team members here at BSM Media had a chance to experience an ocean adventure trip at Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching; this is a true SoCal experience that you won’t want to miss.

With over 40 years in business, Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching is located in Orange County in Dana Point Harbor, which is easily accessible from Interstate 5.  Less than ten minutes from the highway, Dana Wharf is conveniently located close to Laguna Niguel, Mission Viejo, San Clemente, and only an hour north of San Diego.

Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching has been seeing blue whales daily  for over a month and guarantee if you do not see whales or dolphin you get a whale check to come back anytime for free.   We went on a two hour outing and were thrilled to see a dozen blue whales on our outing and almost a dozen dolphins as well.   Relaxing with the ocean breeze and our friends made for the perfect ambiance as we watched these miraculous creatures in their natural habitat.

It was interesting to learn that blue whales are the largest mammals on earth with a maximum growth of near 100 feet in length.  We had four children in our group and they were completely entertained on our two hour cruise.  Of course seeing the common dolphins swimming around the boat was beyond exciting for them as was trying to keep track of the abundant whales that seemed to follow our boat.  Knowing the blue whales would take their deep dive for krill made it more thrilling to watch and we experienced the ultimate finale by seeing the fluke on the whale’s final dive.

Tickets for this ocean adventure at Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching are $35.00 for adults and $20 for children, but you can save 50% on your tickets on Tuesdays all year long.    Snacks and beverages are also available for purchase and if you get lucky, they sometimes run a special on certain items.   The whale watching tours are a fantastic way to celebrate corporate or special events, hold a meeting that attendees will remember, and enjoy a night out with friends and visitors.

A variety of adventures are offered daily at Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching.  Daily whale watching cruises are offered as well as catamaran adventures…yes, that is next on our list…along with the evening Orange County Wine Cruise. You can purchase tickets by phone by calling their ticketing company at (800) 979-3370 or purchase them online.

Tickets and the excursion were provided for a BSM Media employee.

  1. As a homeschooling mom I am always looking for something fun and educational to do when we are in California so thank you for writing about this. I have always wondered what these tours would be like. Love knowing about the Tuesday discount and the whale check to come back for free. Definitely adding this to our “to do” list!
