Good for out of town guests and locals!

The boat (Dana Pride) was clean and big. There were plenty of seats in the galley. There are seats on the upper deck but it's limited and you need to get in line early to snag one of those. We preferred to stand in the front of the boat anyway so it didn't matter to us. We didn't see any whales the day we went but we saw a large pod of dolphins and several sea lions. The captain rode along with the dolphins for a long time which was nice, everyone had plenty of time to shoot video and take pictures. We have more family coming next month and we are going to do it again. Even if we hadn't seen a thing, it was a nice way to spend a couple hours out on the water. It was a beautiful warm day but still chilly on the boat. We definitely needed a couple layers (as their website suggests). Grab a drink at Turk's afterward. It's a great day out!

Fun adventure

Everything about the staff and boat was great! A fun trip, and there is a little thrill not knowing what you will see. They do announce immediately that if no whales or dolphins are seen, that they give a voucher for another free trip. Fun two hours and would recommend.

good trip if whales are spotted

this trip is a great outing if anything is spotted. it not it's slightly boring but they give you your ticket back if that is the case, allowing you to go again whenever you want for free so really, no matter what you always have a chance to see marine life. seeing the dolphins and whales is very thrilling. hopefully you see them on your outing...

This was a fantastic trip. The boat was beautiful and comfortable and the crew was very professional and knowledgable. We saw 6 whales with the first one spotted within 5 minutes of leaving the dock. A great time was had by all!

I invited my children from San Fransisco to come and enjoy waching whales. The smal children were very exited. About 2 hours cruise we did not see any of sea animals. They told us we can try one more time. Hopefully the children will come again and partisipate.

Dana Wharf Whale Watching Trip

it was okay nice to go out to the water.I have a 5 and 10 year old child my 5 year old got really bored after the first hour but my daughter enjoyed it. We didn't see anything till just before the trip ended so it was a little long when all you can see is the ocean for miles.

great, easy, worth the trip, best time ever.

WE came from Oklahoma to vacation, this was on our to do list. Booked it over the phone, very easy. Directions was very easy, had no problem finding it or the parking. Got on the boat without any problem, was able to walk about the boat, which made it easy to go to side to side to see the whales. I recommed not setting on the inside, you have to get up and go out to see anything, we stayed on the back of the boat which was beautiful. The guide was excellent at finding us whales, I believe we came upon 2 within 30 min., followed them for an hour. Brought us upon another 2 whales feeding. Didn't see dolphins, but that was because we had such a great turn-out on whales, so we didn't mind, after all we were whale-watching. The boat ride was smooth. Over all, excellent experience, the tickets were cheap and they took us to whales. So if you ever want to see whales, do it because they make it a very easy to get tickets, to get there and make it worth your wild.
