We thoroughly enjoyed our sunset whale watching cruise. The ship was comfortable and well maintained. The captain was extremely knowledgeable about whales and it added a tremendous amount of depth of understanding to the experience. A great vacation experience and value!

Although we did not spot any whales on our trip, my daughter and I still had lots of fun just being out on the water! The best part is that the DanaWharf provides you with a free return ticket because we did not see a whale, so we get to go back whenever we would like. It does not even have to be this season! That definitely made it worth our while. The staff of the Dana Pride were also very friendly. I would recommend this for a fun activity for the family

We enjoyed a beautiful two hour trip and followed two California Gray Whales at a respectful distance on their trip down the coast. The narration provided by the captain and others was both educational and enthusiastic. The crew was as delighted as the passengers in observing these beautiful animals. Really enjoyed our outting!

Getting Children Hooked
Sun, Jul 10, 11   12:45 PM stone_hinge Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
For this month’s Father Daughter day, my princess asked to go fishing in the ocean. I have gone out of Dana Warf many times so naturally I went to their website to get more information. They had an offer that was perfect for us. She was free and her pole rental was free. There was a clinic before the trip for the kids to show them how to tie on their hooks and how to properly bait the hook. She was ready to go. Since this was her first trip into the ocean I did not have a lot of expectations for a good time. Sea sickness, boredom and disinterest were my concerns. She loved the boat ride comparing it to a ride. As far as the other two concerns that was a non-issue almost from the first cast. Fishing was horrible because of the sudden water temperature drop but she didn’t care. She landed two fish and has her own “One that got away” story. She was very upset when the captain told us to pull in our lines because we had to head back. The crew was even impressed that she liked getting her own bait since a majority of the other kids (mostly boys) wouldn’t. It was a great bonding day which was the true goal. She is already planning our next fishing trip. By the way she read that you have sleep over trips. I wonder how her Hello Kitty sleeping bag will fit in with the rest of the fishermen’s gear. We will have to see….. Thanks for a great day filled with memories. R. Stone Alta Loma, CA

Great Day, Great Experience

We took the 10 am cruise and were able to enjoy not only great weather but a terrific experience. Captain was very knowledgable and after leading us to schools of dolphin brought us within photographic distance of several grey whales. Only negative part about the trip was the number of other boats with inexperienced skippers who tended to spook the whales and prevented us from getting a closer look. Nevertheless, a very enjoyable experience.

We had not left the harbor by more then 200 yards when we came upon three gray whales courting and then mating. Truely a once in a life time experience! if that was not enough we then found a large pod of dolphins that entertained us for a good thirty minutes. We could not have asked for a better trip!

If you can get passed the pretencious, snobby, plastic locals that live outside of their means, in a dream world - the area is actually really nice. The ship it self was very clean, well maintained, with very well educated staff. I felt safe the entire time, as did my girlfriend. We were just looking for something to do to get away from Disneyland for a day, and this seemed like a good idea. We saw grey whales surface several times, and some dolphins jumping, as well as sea lions (these can be seen at pretty much every rocky point on the west coast, but still interesting). There are food and drinks on the ship, and the one guy who's name I can't remember - he actually stays on deck with you and is full of useful information about the area. I definitely will return and do this again, and highly recommend it for couples or families.

Had a great time, crew is very accommodating and knowledgeable. Would have been a great experience even if we had not seen any marine life (but we did) and the crew was very informative as to what we were seeing ,why and also a little marine biology lesson thrown in. I do not hesitate to recommend this trip to any and all. Enjoy!
