FISH CLEANING FEE

Surprise $2 fee to clean each squid. Couldn't take home whole. Didn't find out about fee until near end of trip with 16 squid in sack. Great trip otherwise.

Wonderful experience with great whale sightings.

Our grandchildren (age 10 and 12) enjoyed seeing the dolphins swimming along the boat and leaping out of the water, and we were all thrilled with the sightings of three blue whales. The captain did a great job of maneuvering the boat to maximize our view of the whales as they displayed their tails just prior to their deep dives. The boat was not crowded and we had plenty of room to move about from one end/side of the boat to the other. The trip was definitely well worth the money and we will go again when in the area!

Great Whale Watching Experience

This was by far the best trip of whale watching I had been on. We spotted three whales that gave us a great show and the boat Captain & Crew were outstanding in spooting and information.

Whale of a Time!

The Dana Pride crew was great -- we went at 5pm for a sunset cruise. Captain stayed with the blue whale we saw for about a half hour, and then we went to "play with the dolphins". Very enjoyable.

A great deal for having a great time.

This is the second time I took this trip in about the last 4 weeks or so. The blue whale watching discounted tour is batting two-for-two for me now. Lots of dolphins and blue whales seen again. And for a retired guy like me who really just likes to be out on the ocean on a nice boat, the whales and dolphins are a bonus. Plus the 2-hour duration for this trip allows you to get free parking in the public parking lot, which has a 4-hour time limit (but don't say it too loud lest the town council get some big ideas about raising revenues).

I went with my son who was visiting from England & we had THE best time ! The boat was immaculate, the crew were so friendly & informative. We saw so many dolphin & them were thrilled to see 2 huge blue whales which we followed just yards from the boat. The crew member on the speaker had so much information & interesting facts about the whales. It was one of the best trips I've ever done & I would, and will, recommend to anyone. Can't wait to take my grandkids!

Well narrated successful whale search

This was my fourth whale watch outing in a month. It was just as good as the others (with a different company) and the narration was perhaps even better in the way the naturalist explained the 2 pods of dolphins and the blue whale that the captain found for us.

The icing on the cake for your trip to Dana Point!

Tue, Aug 23, 11   4:00 PM DYNAZOR Male 60-69 Local Individual
The tour really delivered the goods, with dolphins in abundance and many blue whale sightings. The captain's narration was excellent as well. What better way to spend a part of your day during your visit to beautiful Dana Point. The boat is new, clean, and comfortable. Not only was the crew friendly, but so were the other guests on board; I guess having a really good experience brings out the best in people. In summation, take this trip, you won't be disappointed. The 1/2 price special offered on Tuesdays (the day I went) made it extra sweet.

There used to be a sign on 5 Frwy south showing Street of the Golden Lantern. Was looking for it, got lost, 'cause the sign is gone. We were told to be there by 1:30 for a 2 sail and catamaran didn't show up until 2. A waste of 30 minutes standing around
