Really fantastic 2 hours!

The boat was great and the Captain seemed very nice. Michelle Anderson and her group made this an unforgettable journey. Dolphins stayed with us all day and we saw two blue whales. The only thing I would have wished is for the Captain to have been able to shut off the engine when we were so close to the whales. But, no complaints. I look forward to going again!

I loved going with Michelle Anderson's group to celebrate the Equinox. Our trip was so beautiful and gentle and joy filled watching all the dolphins and whales. It was quite a gift! The captain was wonderful and sensitive to our group.

Outstanding blue whale watch

This trip encountered more blue whales, at least 12 different whales, close to shore than I have ever witnessed The captain did a particulary good job of getting close good looks of several selected whales. One whale showed us a fluke up dive every time it went on a deep dive. I saw more blues in Santa Barbara Channel about 4 years ago but that was much further out from shore and a much longer whale watch.

We decided to try out this trip based on the high number of recent whale sightings and the good reveiws. We had an AWESOME time! The captian was wonderful and even took us out looking for a pod of Orca's that had recently been sighted. We were able to find them and saw them blow their spouts but they never resurfaced. That was ok though because we headed back in and were able to see the most wonderful Blue Whales. We sat for a long time and watched a pair of them surface, dive down and surface again. They were so close to the boat you could almost touch them! My son is visually impaired and can't see things at a distance but was so excited that he could see the whales. It was a really neat experience and something I would definitely recommend! We plan to go again :)

Great boat and crew--not overcrowded. Saw three blue whales and more dolphins than we could count. Very informative captain and crew. Highly recommend this trip.

I LOVED my whale watch adventure! The captain and staff were very knowledgeable and friendly! I HIGHLY recommend to anyone who wants to explore our Southern California coast wildlife, that they sign up for a cruise at Dana Wharf!
