We were delighed to experience such an amazing adventure and admire the magnifiscent blue whales. Our captain was an amazing spotter as one blue whale submerged on a deep dive and breached right next to our boat. The kids loved the viewing on the front deck. I would highly recommend this trip.

I give the Catamaran Adventure a four Star review, it was excellent from check-in to the end of the trip. We will do this one again!

Everything is great except there are no fish.

Didn't even get one bite. Boat and crew are for the most part ok. But judging by what was caught by all of the fishers on the boat this area is over-fished. Have been out about 6 times over last 15 years and the most I caught was 4 fish on one outing.

We did this as a playdate with my four year old girls and their friends/moms and we had a really nice time. We got very lucky and saw multiple schools of dolphins and at least eight blue whales. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the boat was comfortable.

Our captain/driver of our boat was great! He wanted to make sure everyone was having a great time. It easily accommodated our party of 6 people and we were all able to sit together! We saw a good amount of Blus whales, and will be coming back soon!

The Blue Whales were amazing! Now I know why a Blue Whale got it's name. Also saw krill, the whales food.

Decent Trip
Tue, Aug 28, 12   5:00 PM DontCare2 Male 20-29 Local Individual
We saw seven or eight blues and a pod of long-beaked common dolphin. The captain approached far too close to whales several times, well within the 100-yard limit. Only once did a whale happen to surface near the boat on it's own accord. The captain didn't appear very knowledgeable of whales, giving maximum figures as averages, stating a blue whale's heart was the size of a bus (he meant a Volkswagen bug), and not even bothering to identify the dolphins to species (merely calling them "common dolphins", even though there are two species). Rude people constantly stepped in front of me at the bow, with one women shoving her away into a small space in front of me to get pictures with her iPhone.

crew informative and friendly, ship clean
Tue, Aug 28, 12   2:00 PM isabelsfun Female 50-59 Local Family With Children
we saw at least 15 whales from a distance and 5 up close, within 10 feet of the boat. Crew was friendly and informative giving information about whales and their food source krill. Boat was clean and on time leaving and returning to port. I will go again every chance I get, especially on 1/2 price Tuesdays.

Good trip

I have been wanting to go whale watching for many years. My son treated us to a whale watching tour out of Newport in July. We enjoyed the boat ride, though we didn't see any whales. When I saw that Dana Wharf offered 1/2 price tours I thought we could try it again and that a different tour company might be luckier. I'm so glad we did. Weather was good and of course the best highlight was we saw whales. We sat on top so we could sit rather than stand since we are older. We were a little disappointed as the pilot always seemed to direct the boat in a position where the view of the whales was good for him, but not for some of us who were on a part of the boat that couldn't see as well. Other people near us had the same complaint. Our view was always blocked by other people gathering on the side of the boat the pilot seemed to favor to face the whales, so we just caught glimpses. But since this trip was already an improvement over the trip out of Newport, it made us happy. I would like to try the catamaran, but not sure how to get reservations on it. When I made this reservations, it wasn't revealed we would not be on the catamaran until after the purchase was completed. I'm hoping to use the 1/2 price coupon that was given to us next year for a trip with our grandkids. The pilot also kept talking about the whales like they were separate whales, but we could tell we were just seeing the same ones multiple times.
