Dana Wharf Whale Watching began in 1971 and was the first whale watching company in Orange County. We are the premier year-round whale watching facility in Southern California if you are coming to Whale Watch you want to do it from Dana Point with Dana Wharf the pioneers of the industry . We interact with over 1000 whales during the Gray whale migration in the winter and view hundreds of 90 feet Blue whales in the summer. In addition to whales, thousands of dolphins, sea lions, sea faring birds and even shark are found year-round in our waters, so we always have plenty of wildlife to see. We are also home to the original Dolphin Stampede video.
