Had a good time but whale watching was very slow and only got too see one whale at the very end of the tour. Saw no dolphins at all. Was going to ask for a refund or another day the go whale watching but grand daugther was a little sea sick and forgot too ask. Please send me 3 tickets to try it again. Grand daughter promise we will have better luck. Scott Burns

Because of the half price Tuesdays, a friend and I got a group together to enjoy a couole hours on the water. The crew was great! Very interactive with the passengers. If you want to go whale watching, do it! Don't put it off. Have fun!

The weather was beautiful, the crew efficient and friendly, and - since we saw three species of whales - a great outcome. Would recommend this outing to others! Only "wish" - have the narrator explain a little more about the differences in the whales we saw!

Fun with Patience

Tue, Apr 6, 10   2:00 PM CindyB768 Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
We enjoyed the boat ride, although it was cold (to be expected on the ocean in early April). I knew it took patience and a good eye to spot the whales. My children, ages 7 and 8, got frustrated when they couldn't adjust their eyes quickly enough to see the brief sighting of the whales. They did get to see them, but I think were disappointed. It made them feel better when I told them we were the only boat of the day to see any whales at all.

Non-smoking ship

Tue, Apr 6, 10   12:00 PM JohnBonnell Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
The activity was good we all had fun eventhough we didn"t see any whales. The biggest concern my wife has is we were under the impersion that the ship was non-smoking. My wife was sitting on the top deck and the captain was smoking so much that the smoke just kept coming out around the window and blowing into the seats up stairs. This gave my wife a headeck and made the rest of the crusie uncomfortable for many of the other passengers.

Great day on the water

The sun, sea and coastline were beautiful, the crew were courteous and informative. We didn't see any whales, but we saw dolphins and had a wonderful time. We understood that the whales don't show up on demand and went with the idea in mind that we would be happy with whatever we saw.

Only dolphins, No whales :(

We were very excited to see whales on our visit, but unfortunately only say two pods of dolphins! The dolphins were great to see, but our high expectations of actually seeing a large-sized whale were not met. Maybe again next whale season.

Only One Complaint

Tue, Apr 6, 10   10:00 AM cgoehring Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
Excellent cruise. Staff was wonderful, even with tons of people on the boat getting sick. Only complaint is that there is no warning that smoking is allowed - and that smokers tend to stand in the bow so that there is no escape.

No whales seen on our trip

We did not see any whales on our trip, but we were given vouchers to use on any return trip. We are from Indiana, but plan on going out to California again in the next couple of years. They said that the vouchers were good forever, so we plan to use them later. Seas were pretty choppy that day. Crew seemed helpful. would recommend this to friends

Awesome!

This is one of the best activities ever! I am from Illinois and come to California to visit my son, daughter in law and two grandsons. We try to do as many fun things as possible, and this is the best! The staff interacted with us, making this a very educational activity, as well as lots of fun. I would certainly recommend -- whole heartedly -- a whale watch to any native Californian or visitor.

We throroughly enjoyed our trip and we saw a grey whale breaching (in early April) so we were very pleased with that. Personally we would would recommnd the early trip (10am) as there are fewer people on board. There were about 60 when we went and this was comfortable - any more and the boat (the Dana Pride) would have felt a bit crowded. The crew were very pleasant and knowledgeable. On our next visit to Dana Point we will be joining you again!

Great Way to Spend the Day

Getting tickets, license, rod rental, parking, etc. was quick and easy. Crew was friendly and knowledgable. Boat was clean and stocked with a variety of baits. Fellow anglers were friendly and nice - Not the typical rough crowd that is half-in-the-bag by 7:00 am.
