Whale & Dolphin Watching

Delight in the exciting sights and sounds of the many types of magnificent ocean creatures that live off the coast of Dana Point - a known landmark for whale sightings. Dana Wharf's tours offer rare glimpses into a huge variety of underwater wildlife that you wil never forget. November through April is Grey Whale season. Come witness for yourself the rare sight of this majestic, endangered creature. Watch them as they migrate south and travel really close to shore! Found only in the Pacific Ocean, this magnificent marine mammal is a sight you'll never forget.

You'll also see Dolphins galore. You will be able to see many types of dolphins such as Risso's and bottle-nosed dolphins - all year long! Don't forget your camera, as schools of playful dolphins often play around the boat! All cruises are narrated by the captains who will educate you on the abundant ocean life on our coast.

Sport Fishing

Our landing caters to the amateur as well as seasoned fishermen. Our knowledgeable crew and expert skippers are always eager to help educate and instruct, if needed. The types of fish available to catch vary depending on the season and water temperature. Some of them are Halibut, Barracuda, Yellowtail, White Sea Bass, Sand Bass, Calico Bass, Bonito, and even Tuna. You never know what you might reel in, and that is part of the magic of fishing.

Our vessels are clean, and they offer many options of hot and cold food. Beer, soda, chips and candy are available for purchase (sorry, no coolers can be brought aboard the boat). If you do not have fishing gear, rods and reels are available to rent. A day license for anyone over 16 years of age is required. Come join us for an adventure you will never forget. You just might get hooked on fishing!
