Excellent information and knowledge of crew

Saw a Blue Whale, lost of Dolphins and Californian Sealions. In summer this was more than could be expected. The dolphins in particular were spectacular, jumping and playing close to the boat.

The Grandkids did not want to go but ended up loveing it. The operators searched and searched for a Blue Whale but could not find one. However the did not give up until we found a pod of dolphins.

An amazing experience and people at Dana Wharf are excellent, already planning to go back and take the trip again in november. Very satisfied it was worth every penny.

As usual the Capt's enthusiasm for showing his guests the great mammals of the ocean paid off - two huge pods of dolphin with young, a small pod of Rizzo dolphin and a memorable encounter with a Blue Whale which thanks to the Capt's hard work we saw on the surface 4 times. The nice thing about this trip is that the Capt. and his crew really care and are knowledgeable about these animals and want their guests to see them - we'll be going again when the greys come by

Awesome trip -- HIGHLY recommended

We (my wife and I) have been on numerous Whale Watching trips aboard the Dana Pride and each one has been a thoroughly satisfying and wonderful experience. Excellent captain, crew and vessle -- top flight all the way. We've taken family and friends along and have never been disappointed. In fact, our granddaughter will be visting us from Omaha next week and is very excited about going out with us, especially after hearing about our most recent trip where we encountered mega-pods of dolphin and a blue whale. I've also been on several fishing charters out of Dana Wharf and would rate these excellent as well.

Our 2nd trip. Took 2 Grandchildren with us this time, they loved it. This will become a regular activity for ourselves and guests visiting us from back home (MI).

Enjoyed seeing the dolphins

Our family had a great time. We went to seaworld the previous day and were looking forward to seeing sealife in their natural habitat. We were in the water about 20 minutes when we ran into a huge pod of common dolphins. We saw pods of risso and more common dolphins. It was amazing watching the dolphins swim all around the boat. We were down on the front deck and could see the dolphins racing on the side and crossing the boats front bow. We were hoping to see the blue whale but no such luck. On the way back there was a beautiful view of the coastline and sailboats. We did a lot of different things on our vacation but the ocean cruise was the most entertaining.

Fun boat trip

The boat was really nice and the people were great. We were able to see some sea lions and a huge pod of dolphins. It was an incredible sight to see and I would definately recommend it to anyone. The boat however was very rocky so if you are a person that gets sea sick at all - you either may want to rethink or take precautions.

Good value

The boat was simple and stable, good job of finding and following dolphin pods, had a difficult time understanding the comments of the captain over the speaker. Will go again in whale season.

My wife and I had a wonderful time on the boat. The crew went out of their way to be helpful, informative, and they didn't give up until we got to see marine life! I have been on other whale watching trips, but this was by far my favorite!
