Great fun even though we did not see a whale.

Really enjoyed the outing. It was at the end of the whale season and we did not see a whale but we were very pleased with the cruise. We did see many many dolphins and the kids loved seeing them jump out of the water.

Dedicated crew

The crew worked very hard to make four whale sitings even though there were very rough seas and the whales were hard to spot.

We looked for a specific whale, saw it twice, and saw another once. Didn't see dophins at all. I assumed we'd see more animals, but it might have been the time of the day (5pm.) All in all at least we saw something, and the boat was nice.

Great experience

My husband, daughter, son-in-law, two-year-old grandson and I took the 5PM tour to see the blue whales and we were not disappointed. I have a fear of water (can't swim) and was afraid to take a smaller boat. The Dana Pride was perfect for me. We got seats on the top deck and saw our first whale within 10 minutes of leaving the dock. The boat was big enough so that I did not feel like I might fall in the water but not so big as to feel crowded. Our guide/pilot was very knowledgable about the whales and continued to find more for us to see as the time went on. We were a bit late getting back because we followed a pair of whales a little way down the coast so we could get a good view. This also allowed us to experience the sunset. We would do this trip again in a heartbeat.

Amazing!! Blue Whales Abound!!

We had a fantastic adventure watching the blue whales and dolphins. The skipper was great and so forthcoming with lots of facts about all of sealife we saw. The crew was very friendly as were the other people on the trip. There were so many blue whales we couldn't even count them all. What a treat for my daughter's 40th birthday!!

Boat ride boring for kids when no fish to be seen

I enjoyed the ride but the children got bored when there were no more fish to be seen. If I go back to Calif. next year I will definitely use my free ticket and do the ride again. Hopefully we will find whales to see. Crew was nice and friendly.

Wonderful amount of dolphins!

We witnessed the most dolphins we have ever seen on an excursion like this. We've been to Hawaii and numerous other whale watching locations. Unfortunately we didn't get to see any blue whales on the trip but we were offered a free return pass and 50% off another trip so that more than makes up for it.

This was a fantastic experience. The boat ride was comfortable and relaxing. We saw dolphins, sun fish and a Blue Whale and her baby! It was amazing to see.

Pretty good day
Mon, Aug 6, 12   5:00 PM kissel25 Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We were excited to be able to see 2 gray whales. The captain and crew were very knowledgeable and were able to get us in close for a look. After leaving the whales the captain indicated that we would go and find some other mammals (dolphins we assumed) but he simply took the boat back to the dock. This after telling my 9 year old that we would go find some dolphins... A few extra minutes and keeping a promise would have been nice...

Awesome way to end our vacation!

We weren't sure what to expect and thought maybe we were just going to be seeing the coastline. Boy did you surprise us! We were blown away when we were able to see the whales several times as they resurfaced. It was jaw dropping and exciting. What amazing creatures! The staff made it truly special with their interesting facts and knowledge base. The crew was extremely knowledgable about the sealife in the area and really great with the guests. You can tell that the crew respects the whales and are just as fascinated by them as we were. Thank you for making our voyage an event to remember!
