Not a fishing trip more like a boat ride.

great day on the water

The trip itself was great. The crue was fantastic. Could not ask for better. But... The girls at the check in store bad attitudes. Wanted to look at there phones instead of helping customers. It just seemed like we got in there way . One guy was in the store and he helped us out . Found out the hard way about needing a parking permit or you can get your car towed.

Exciting

I really enjoyed this trip. Even though we didn't see any whales, it was still fun. Since we didn't see any whales, they gave our ticket back to come another time. I would do it again in a heart beat. Very exciting

The captain was well spoken and explained the life cycle of the Whales and Dolphins in a manner that the young children could understand and relate to.

Spectacular!

I went with my two grown nieces and my two little nieces. The best part of the excursion for all us was when we came upon a megapod of dolphins. I love dolphins and to see them swimming on every side of the boat for as far as my eyes could see was spectacular.

Terrific day with grandson. Never dull!

The crew was lot of fun and always available to help untangle lines, remove fish from hooks, and share tips. Dolphins followed the wake, gulls and pelicans were never far, sailboats were whipping nearby, a tall ship was seen at a distance and paddle boarders and surfers were closer to shore. Hayden, our 8 year old grandson caught a rockfish and we all agreed to return when the water was warmer.

Whale Watching Always a Wow!

My two granddaughters, ages 10 and 12, went whale watching with me for the first time. What a thrill to watch them in their excitement and awe as we watched 3 grey whales and common dolphins galore as well as something we'd never seen before, sea lions behaving like dolphins! The girls loved their boat trip and will come back again many times, I'm sure...

Well Done

The crew of the Dana Pride do a great job, and the boat is very pleasant. We did see some whales, but nothing spectacular as they were busy migrating, so just a few fins and no breaches. We also saw dolphins and thought the skipper did a fine job educating the passengers with his comments. Good solid family fun.

Excellent whale watching on a less than perfect da
Fri, Mar 29, 13   10:00 AM danneand Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
While the weather was overcast and windy, it was still worth standing on the bow of the boat to watch the common dolphin playing along side the boat and the whale breach near by. The captain did an excellent job of circling so the 40-50 dolphins could play in front, beside, under and behind the boat for 10-15 mintes. Many opportunities for photos and videos. At the same time, his informational talk was interesting without being imposing. He waited over 30 minutes for us to see the whale breach 3 or 4 times before we had to speed back in order to not delay the next group. The captain's knowledge of marine life and the area was impressive and entertaining. A great value and highly recommended for families with kids of all ages.

Well worth it

Whales are right off shore so no long trek out to sea. Boat commodious. Bloody Mary's available for those with children (and food for kids as well). Very persistent crew in finding and tracking whales. Good commentary

The 1/2 price whale watch was well worth the money. We did see a pod of 6 whales, some dolphins, and seals. The boat was in good condition and staff was friendly and informative.

We saw Fin Whales, Grey Whales, Dolphins, and Sea Lions!!! To top off the whole trip, we saw a whale breach and another whale's fluke as we were returning to the harbor. I would reccommend this to anyone.

This was a great memorable family adventure. This is for the kids and the adults too. The staff at Dana Wharf Sport Fishing & Whale Watching are very professional and knowledgable. Without a doubt' I would (and have) recommended them to many family and friends. I wish we could have seen more whales, but we have no control over nature. We look forward to another adventure with Dana Wharf.
