Awesome, highly recommended experience

The captain was very knowledgable about the ocean and marine life. He showed us a few dolphins and then found us a mega pod of dolphins. He gave us info about dolphins and other marine life. He also showed us a group of CA sea lions and told us about them. We had a nice, relaxing time out on the ocean. The crew was also very nice.

The trip was fantastic. Although we didn't get to see any whales we were able to seals and several dolphins. It was a lot of fun and a great experience.

Great time to see Marine life

Now is the perfect time to see whales, dolphin, and sea lions off the California coast. The Dana Wharf Catamaran Whale Watching Cruise truly exceeded our expectations of providing a spacious boat, a friendly crew, and numerous encounters with marine life. The 2 hour cruise was sufficient to see everything we wanted, plus some we hadn't expected. I'd recommend the excursion to any age group.

Had a blast. The crew was very helpful and really cool guys and the galley cook made amazing breakfast burritos. Overall one of the better fishing days I have had even though I didn't manage to catch much!

Appreciated the consideration given the whale so it wouldn't be hemmed in. Captain's narration was educational and informative.

too crowded
Sun, Jul 19, 09   6:30 AM thegrau Male 40-49 Local Group of Friends
This operation books too many people to make it truely enjoyable. The boat was elbow to elbow from bow to stern. but as they say, the worst day of fishing is better than the best day of work and we did catch some fish and the deckhands were helpful. I'm sure I will go again, but never again on the weekend unless they limit their load.

Best 2 Hours on the water ever!

Thank you Captain and crew of the Dana Pride. You were awesome! I have lived here for over 35 years and have never done a "Whale Watch". In part; I get sea sick and the other being skeptical of others having respect of sea life. My niece and her husband came from Philadelphia for vacation. I wanted to plan something so they could enjoy the Pacific Ocean. Booked 8 tickets--half price--what a deal! My family is still talking about it two weeks later. From the west coast to the east coast. Saw a school of dolphins with babies. They followed the boat as if they were playing for attention. Water was calm, sky blue, no wind. Like they came just to see us. The Captain's narration made us feel secure in that they were enjoying this as much as we were. Then on to the search for the Blue Whale. Not one Blue Whale--but 5. Yes I said 5. There were others on the boat that said they had been on other Whale watches and had never seen a whale. Not this time!. Not only was it exciting and enjoyable to see these massive creatures of the sea, I felt appreciative of the Captain and crew's respect for these creatures and our ocean. Best 2 hours on the ocean I have ever had. Too much fun to get sea sick.

I talked to three people to get the tickits because I had to cheek on things and keep calling back and everyone I talked to was very nice and helpful.

We did see a gray whale and watched it emerge several times over 30-40 minutes. Good value for 1/2 price.

Exciting and Fun

We had a great time, enjoying the fantastic weather and scenery. We saw sealions and dolphins and finally some whales. The crew went out of their way to try to ensure we saw some whales and actually over ran the sailing time to do so. Very friendly and informative staff.

Fun for whole family

Crew was great, if you don't want to touch the fish you never have to, there is always a crew member around to do everything for you. Good food too!

Beautiful day whale watching...minus the whales

The 2 hours spent on the whale watching boat were very fun! The ocean was calm, the crew experienced, friendly and professional. Though we ultimately did not see any whales, we did receive a coupon to go back out again! I would recommend this activity to my friends!
