No Whales

We didn't see any whales. We did see about 10 dolphins and 1 harbor seal. However, the trip was gorgeous. The weather was awesome. And since we didn't see much, they gave us tickets that don't expire for another trip out. So I'll be going again soon.

Very knowledgeable
Mon, Mar 21, 11   12:00 PM Nareman Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The Captain and others that work aboard the Dana Pride were very knowledgeable about the marine life and were able to spot the marine life from afar and tell us what kind of mammal it was. It made the trip a lot better and the family I had from out of town loved it and were so glad we got to see a pod of dolphins, a sea lion and three gray whales. Thank you! :-)

No Whales

We did not see any whales which was disappointing but lots of dolphins and sea lions. It was rough waters but fun. Next time we will bring blankets - the four year old with us did enjoy it but said it was too long. I guess two hours can be long for a little guy. We all had fun and the crew was great. Departures and arrivals were timely.

No whales...

The ride was fine... we saw a few dolphins but it was a pretty boring trip. Two hours seemed like too long to be on such rough water and not see any whales... probably wouldn't go again :(

Few fish caught, but nice day for a cruise. Crew was friendly and professional. We had a group of 10 adults and boy scouts from Lake Arrowhead, Ca. and all had fun.

See above - we did see Dolphins & Sea Lions. Had 2 adults and 7 and 9 year old girls. Is there anyway of predicting whales will show up?

The fishing was slow,but the crew did a great job. They did everything the could to get some fish on the boat, but it didn't happen. Still nice to be on the water.

Great crew and beautiful whales!

George and the rest of the crew are fantastic! This was our second whale watching with your company, and both times were perfect. We saw grey whales this time, and last time we saw blue whales and hundreds of dolphins. I love the respect that your crew shows for nature. We also bought the video, and love it. Thanks! We will be back to take another trip.

We were pleasantly surprised. The boat was large and comfortable, the crew and Captain were outstanding! We already made plans to do this again in July. Can't wait to see the Blue Whale's :)

Whale following
Sat, Mar 19, 11   10:00 AM divyarshan Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Must say we were very lucky to spot a whale 10 - 15 minutes out in the ocean and kept following it for about half an hour. The crew was very helpful in providing information about the pattern of the whale being observed - when it goes for a big dive, when it will surface back, and the sort. It was a perfect day out - being the 10 am tour we did not have much people on the trip and could move around easily. I came with my 16 month old who had her jacket on. One of the crew members also offered their jacket to keep her warmer. That was a nice gesture, isn't it? Then we spotted a few sea lions which kept posing for the photos. It was good that the crew did their most to search and find as many life they could spot in the ocean. Overall I would highly recommended it though I do not know how my feedback would have been if we did not spot any !

Sea lions, dolphins & a whale
Fri, Mar 18, 11   4:00 PM soksniffer Male 30-39 Local Couple on a Date
Whale watching is of course dependent on whales being in the area to begin with, so in that regard we were lucky. That said, Captain Tom and Larry(?) did an amazing job of getting us where the action was, tracking a large pack of sea lions, a huge pod of dolphins and keeping us just astern of a gray whale and predicting with remarkable accuracy when and where it would surface. I got sea sick and Larry's good advice got me through the worst of it and had me feeling human before we got back to shore. Recommended. Dress warmly.

The trip was awesome
Fri, Mar 18, 11   2:00 PM tamide Female 30-39 Local Group of Friends
We had a great experience. The crew was friendly and explained to everyone when they spotted something and interacted well with the passengers. Most important to me was their schedule. We left exactly at our departure time and returned on time. I hate when you have to wait around for people to show up. I would do again and again and again.

Only saw one whale on the trip but just being out on the boat was just to much fun.
