Blue whale season occurs each May through November, and on this two-hour cruise with Dana Wharf, you can see them in all their majestic glory aboard a catamaran or other spacious vessel. Whaling in the 1900s caused a severe decline in the blue whale population along the Pacific coast; however, once hunting was banned, the blue whale population slowly began to recover. Approximately 2,000 blue whales currently call the Pacific coast their home. These majestic creatures are the largest mammals on Earth and can grow to more than 100 feet long. All cruises are narrated by seasoned captains who will educate you on the abundant ocean life along the coast. In addition to blue whales, you might see dolphins, sea lions and much more.
Join Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching, and 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’ll never forget.
May through November is Blue Whale Season! You will not believe your eyes if you get to see the Blue Whale, which can grow up to 100 feet long and weigh up to 100 tons.

During the summer, cruises will also continue to see the dolphin pods, sun fish, sea lions and more that live off the coast throughout the rest of the year. Every trip is a new experience.
