Nice dolphin show but no whales

The boat was very nice and not crowded. We encountered bottlenose dolphins but no whales. We could've spent more time watching the dolphins.

An Enjoyable Short Excursion

We are repeat customers for the two-hour boat trips on the Dana Pride - it's something we treat ourselves to whenever we have out-of-town friends and family visiting, and no one ever seems to get tired of it. There are almost always at least dolphin sightings, even if the whales are not around, and we have had memorable experiences in the center of huge pods of dolphins AND whales AND bird feeding frenzies. Always fun.

Although we didn't see any whales, the entire trip was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and nice from the moment we signed in to the time we left the boat. The boat is beautiful and very well maintained. I felt very safe. See you soon!!

Great time with the Dolphins!

Unfortunately, we didn't see any whales, but we did find a pod of hundreds of dolphins! It was quite amazing, and we spent a lot of time out there watching them swim on all sides of the boat. Occasionally, we'd get a little show from a few of them doing some fancy jumps! It was great, we loved it!

Fishing at night is fun!

More bites with this trip. Lots of barracuda were caught on live anchovies. Some looked liked keepers, but I guess people didn't want them. Also lots of calico bass caught and a few sand bass. It helps to have a casting rod for the beginning of the trip while the sun is still out, and then a conventional for the rest of the trip. Enjoy everyone, and have fun catching fish!

This is a whale of a show!
Thu, May 22  2:00 PM BettyStreet Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I went on this whale watch last September. It was so fantastic (saw Blue Whales, Fin Whales and dolphins) that I took relatives on it this May. Once again, we saw lots of dolphins, who surfed with the boat, and the first sighting for the season of a Blue Whale and the 35-foot long baby. Quite exciting. I would recommend this to anyone, who enjoys wildlife, and doesn't get seasick. It can be quite choppy. Take layers of clothes, because it can be 15 degrees colder on the water. I think the 2-4 pm time is the best. The pilot finds the whales on the earlier whale trip. No meal is interrupted on the 2-4 pm slot. It can be colder and sun is lower on the 4-6 slot.

had a great time

Rode with a huge school of dolphins. Didn't get to see any whales, but it was amazing. It was a very windy, choppy day so make sure you take lots of things for motion sickness.

Highly Recommend

It was late in the migration season, so we weren't sure we would see any Grays, but we saw a mother and calf and it was outstanding. We were able to follow them for a couple of hours and it was a wonderful experience. The yacht was clean, the crew was knowledgable and friendly. Highly recommend !!! Will be back when the Blue Whales migrate.

Dana Wharf DANA Point
Sat, May 17  2:00 PM lucindan Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
The boat was clean, the captain navigated comfortably the open sea, with good narrative. There was even a skipper whom came around often to ask how all were doing and if any questions. Very personable and friendly. The children enjoying the cabin had a table with all sorts of plastic fish with tags on each to play with and learn from during the trip, thank you!

Great experience. The crew was very friendly and very informative. The captain teaches in his spare time and his knowledge on marine life was evident. Would definitely use them again if I return to sd/la area

Absolutely Loved the tour!!!
Mon, May 12  2:00 PM KalaniRobb Female 20-29 Local Family With Children
My daughter and I had the Best time!!!! We saw lots of whales and dolphins and seals! My baby is 2 years old so I was worried if she'd have fun or be scared and she loved it and was so relaxed she fell asleep towards the end. The crew was amazing , so knowledgable and so sweet and helpful with us. We will be back to see the blue whales for sure and definitely recommend this ! Kortney and Kealani Robb
