Come see the Gray Whale Migration November – April. Each winter, the Pacific Gray Whales pass by Dana Point, many believe that Dana Point is a landmark on their journey. After spending the summer feeding in the food-rich waters of the arctic, the Grays swim south along the coast to the bays of Baja California, where they mate and nurse their young. Along the way they pass Dana Wharf, where you can witness the annual winter journey. We saw 371 Gray Whales last season!
May – October we see Blue Whales. These majestic creatures are the largest mammal on earth and can grow to over 100 feet long. All of our cruises are narrated by our seasoned captains who will educate you on the abundant ocean life on our coast.
