What’s New at DolphinWorks!

DolphinWorks Teams up with Dana Wharf for Secrets of the Sea Events

It was Doug Thompson and DolphinWorks that originally started the “Secrets of the Sea” dolphin and whale excursions for DMC’s over twenty years ago in Orange County. The original whale watching business in California was started in the 1970’s by Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching. Now, we are working together to bring you the best of both endeavors for your clients.

DolphinWorks now presents our 2 ½ hour ocean adventures, which we call “Whales, Dolphins, and Secrets of the Sea,” on comfortable vessels owned by Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching. These include the state-of-the-art 65-foot OCean Adventure Catamaran (carrying up to 59 guests) and the 95-foot Dana Pride (carrying up to 149 guests), both well appointed and with full galleys for drinks and snacks. Both vessels are equipped with comfortable bathrooms and are extremely stable. Each vessel is very competitively priced for our adventures. The drop-off and pick-up areas are convenient for mini-coaches and full coaches.

On our Eco-Discovery ocean adventures, we don’t simply ride out to the dolphins and whales; we discover and tell stories about many of the wonders just off our shore along on our way. For example, we explore the giant kelp beds along our coastline. Kelp is one of the fastest growing plants (if not the fastest) in the world, growing almost an inch an hour. You have this plant in you or on you right now. Kelp is used in over 200 common products in our country, many of which we use daily. We talk about how the tides work, how waves start, and how the ocean affects our weather, regardless of where you live. We talk about natural phenomena all around us that many people wonder about, but don’t have the opportunity to discuss one-on-one with biologists.

We hope you will consider us for your next ocean adventure. Our good reputation will only be enhanced as your important cliental will experience the best that Orange County has to offer.
