Grandparents scored major points w/ the grandkids!
Sun, Sep 8, 13   2:00 PM Janira Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
Our grandson (6yrs old) had been asking to go see the whales. So I found a coupon & took both grandkids (the other grandkid is a year & half). We saw 2 blue whales & about 500 dolphins! The captain was amazing...he was definitely taken care of our group while respecting the sea animals! He was full of information...better than reading a book or pamphlets! :) My husband & I absolutely enjoyed every minute and loved being able to look like heroes to our grandkids! They were giddy with excitement to see the whales and especially the dolphins because they were so close we could almost touch them. The Catamaran was new & spacious. It accommodated everyone just fine! Go book your tour!!!!

We had a great time, saw several blue whales and two large pods of dolphins. The two hours flew by. I'd highly recommend this cruise!

Mugged at Sea
Sat, Sep 7, 13   2:00 PM joyzzzz Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We've been on several whale watching tours, but we have never been "mugged" before! The whale came right at us like the shark in Jaws, and it went right under the catamaran and out the other side. The captain knew exactly where to find the whales and had officially named one of the ones we saw. The crew was super friendly. The boat was stable, comfortable, and not crowded, leaving all the patrons grinning widely as we shared the wonders before us. From the online purchase of the tickets to the disembarking with a return discount coupon, everything went smoothly.

Wonderful decision

We were in town for a wedding and wanted to accomplish a bucket list endeavor. This experience was absolutely wonderful! Captain Todd was so knowledgable and passionate as he educated us about the dolphins, whales and sea lions that we saw. The entire crew were friendly and went out of their way to assure us a great trip. Thank you!

A Not to Miss Trip!

We've been out on the Dana Pride before on another whale watching trip. That trip was very good, but, I have to say, this last trip was even more special. Due in part to the smaller number of people on board, but having my mother, who is 91, continue to talk about how special this trip was for her. She noted that the captain did more than take us out, but he really did a great job during the whole trip with his knowledge and concern over the whales and for that matter, the whole ocean experience. She was so excited to actually see a female blue whale with here offspring near by. This meant a lot to us to see her enjoy herself. Your captain and crew couldn't have been any more kind and considerate. They made the trip a wonderful experience for us all, as usual!

This was my first fishing trip on a boat. I am just learning to fish. The staff was super friendly and extremely helpful including the captain. I caught my fish two fish. The galley food was really good. I can not thank the crew enough and I plan on making regular trips in the future as this is now my favorite way to fish.

We have two college age daughters, and it's not always easy to find things to do that we will all like. We all loved this. We saw 4 blue whales.

This two hour excursion is just the right amount of time to be out at sea with kids. The Dana Pride arrived and departed on time and they took us to a blue whale feeding spot. We saw a blue whale and several pods of common dolphins. It was a great experience and I would take this trip again during humpback whale season.

Been on vacation at Laguna Beach twice and done the tour both times. Wife really wanted to see a whale. I didn't mind. But after seeing one this trip, I understand and can't wait to do it again. People are awesome. Trip was awesome. Be back soon I hope.

Lots of blue whale viewing, great narrator!
Sat, Aug 31, 13   2:00 PM RELAMPAGO22 Female 50-59 Local Couple on a Date
We saw a blue whale repeatedly, who kept resurfacing every 3-5"! The last time the female (per the person guiding the tour) surfaced, she was within 100' of the boat-great photo opportunities!! Also the person running the tour did a great job at narrating and anticipating where the whale would surface next. Great job!

Really good trip
Sat, Aug 31, 13   6:30 AM jpehoushek Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This is something I do every summer when I am out at the beach. I think this is my 5th trip. The boat and crew are good and the experience is always great. I always have a good time. The fishing luck was kind of lousy this time, but that is just the way it goes. It wasn't for not trying. At least one of our party caught a halibut that was big enough to win him the jack pot! I will go again for sure.
