No whale sighting, but still fun!

Although we did not spot any whales on our trip, my daughter and I still had lots of fun just being out on the water! The best part is that the DanaWharf provides you with a free return ticket because we did not see a whale, so we get to go back whenever we would like. It does not even have to be this season! That definitely made it worth our while. The staff of the Dana Pride were also very friendly. I would recommend this for a fun activity for the family

Was not a good ride.

Choppy choppy water. 60% of the passengers got sick on the boat and were throwing up. Do not bring children under 3. Driver of boat was late getting back so we flew home and the entire boat was splashed we almost all of us got soaked and it was cold outside. Also NO Whales - no Seals Very disappointing.

The crew were so friendly and really enjoy their job. The boat is comfortable with plenty of room. Only wish we could have stayed longer but didn't find the whale until about time to go in. But got a few really great pictures. Our visit was too short but there can not be a bad trip when you can see something as majestic as these beautiful creatures. I am already planning my next trip.

We had a lot of fun. We saw lots of dolphins and sea lions and had a great time cruising out on the ocean. The crew was friendly and helpful. There was plenty of seating inside and out and the galley had good food. I had a breakfast burreto which was really good. Highly recommended.

A pleasant way to spend a few hours on the ocean

While it would have been great to see a whale or two, I was happy to see some seals, several lazy dolphins, and a whole lot of interesting birds. The boat was clean, there was plenty of seating inside (although the best place for sightings is the outside railing), and there was a good selection of reasonably priced items in the galley. I will definitely go again!

MY FAMILY AND I WERE VERY EXCITED TO GO ON THIS TRIP. WE DID SEE A COUPLE OF DOLPHINS. BUT MUCH TO OUR DISAPPOINTMENT WE DID NOT SEE ANY WHALES!!! NOT ONE SIGN OF THEM!! AT THE END OF THE TRIP WE WERE ALL VERY SEA SICK AND COLD AND JUST WISHING TO GET OFF THE BOAT!!! NOT SURE IF WE WILL DO THIS AGAIN ....

We were letdown. Not as expected.

We got great seats...right beside the captains quarters which kept us out of the wind and cold and up high enough to see both sides of the boat. But it didn't matter because we did not see any whales. And we did not get tickets to return for free because the 8am trip was a special price of only $8. So I guess if you don't pay full fare, you don't get to come back for free when you don't see a whale. All they gave us was a coupon for 10% off a future trip. I would not recommend paying more than $10 for this trip. Two hours of just staring out to sea hoping to see a whale was no fun.
