Big Blues were there

The boat had good contact with boats out there & went to where the whales were sighted. The captain knew whales & we had multiple sightings. Have been on many whale watch cruises, and this was a good one. Would do it again.

I haven't fished for 30 years. The crew was great -- very helpful (plus good food and drinks at low prices).

A Fun Afternoon

My wife and I had a great time seeing two blue whales up close for the first time. We were as close to them we really wanted to be considering the size of the whales and the size of the boat. The captain followed the whales the whole time we were on at the limits of the cruise.

This is the second time we take the Whale watching cruise and this time we did see 2 blue whales that made the trip very worthwhile. It was a hot summer afternoon and a respite from the heat. The crew was very helpful.

Two Very Enjoyable Hours on the Water
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Fri, Jul 27, 12   5:00 PM MarleneKande Female 70+ Local Family With Children
This was our second sunset whale-watching cruise. We did it a few years ago, so you know we liked it enough to want to repeat. Our first trip we saw a lot of dolphins who were so cute playing with us right close to the boat. Our recent trip we got to see a whale, and we were very excited. It was amazing. We loved the whole two hours on the sea. It felt just great, and my grandchildren got some wonderful pictures of the whale surfacing and diving. Fantastic!!

A beautiful day of blue whales close by and dophins swimming under and around the boat. Friendly and helpful crew. The large catamarian much more fun than a big boat.

The boat left on time. The weather was fine until the fog set in. The captain was enthusiastic, well informed and made the cruise quite enjoyable. It was fun to see a hugh pod of dolpins. The whale was too far south to get to. July isn't the best time of the year for whale watching. I highly recommend taking a sweatshirt, windbreaker or warm sweater to protect you should the weather get cold, which it did on our trip.

OUR DANA WHARF CAPTAIN'S EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE MADE OUR TRIP INCREDIBLE! I DEFINITELY WILL RECOMMEND YOUR COMPANY TO FRIENDS. I REALLY APPRECIATED ALL THE INFORMATION SHARED WITH US ABOUT BLUE WHALES, THEIR BEHAVIOR AND THEIR RECENT FOOD SEARCH PATTERNS. (AND, OUR TEENAGERS WERE DELIGHTED TO LEARN THAT THEY ARE AMONG THE 1% OF THE WORLD'S POPULATION TO VIEW A BLUE WHALE.) THANKS FOR THE GREAT TRIP! JACKIE GEITH

The boat, The Dana Pride, was clean and safe and our skipper was educated and very knowledgeable about the mammals we hoped to see, from whales to different dolphins etc. He did not dumb-down his narration and I liked that. As it happened the fog rolled in and we didn't see any whales so we got a whale-rain-check - much appreciated. Boat crew were friendly and very agreeable. We shall be back soon. Thanks.

Staff was helpful and commentary was authoritative and informative. Background material responded to questions and encouraged future inquiry. Suggest supporting video material for long periods of little or no contact with whales i.e. what to look for. Suggest as well that the ordering-printing of tickets be simplified. Something like that used for obtaining boarding passes on flights should do the trick. Not all of us have printers readily available and have to resort to hotel facilities.
