Our First Time Whale Watching!
Tue, Feb 3, 09   12:00 PM CQuemada Female 60-69 Local Other
It was a nice day for a boat ride , the ocean was as smooth as glass, and we did see a whale. We also saw dolphins so close to the boat! THE DANA PRIDE boat was very nice and the galley had an array of snacks and goodies. The crew was knowledgeable and helpful. We had a very nice time!

Delightful day out

We appreciated the Tuesday half-price tickets, the on-time departure and return, the enthusiastic welcome, the many dolphins and the lone whale we saw. It was a beautiful sunny day and it was a stable boat with a happy crowd. We didn't eat on board, but others seemed to like their food. Would recommend this to all ages.

Crew: EXCELLENT

Fortunately we went out the day after the Superbowl and there were only nine anglers with two crewmen. Had lots of space to fish, the crew were the best, and the fishing was excellent. Had a great time. Didn't waste time where there were few fish and they found good spots. Thanks for a wonderful day.....

Nice boat trip

We did not see any whales, but did see dolphins and sea lions. The day was beautiful and the trip was a fun two hours in spite of the lack of whales.

Thrilling!

Although we didn't see any whales, the dolphins made up for it. There were hundreds of them. What a great experience. The marine biologist provided indept information on the various types whales and dolphins, the sea lions and the birds. The rest of the crew was very professional, friendly and helpful. We are looking forward to another tour with you and will recommend you to our friends. Thanks for a grand time! Ute PS. It might not be a bad idea to remind your prospective clients of the possibility of sea sickness.

We took advantage of the Tuesday offer and had a fun day together. The tour was well run, clean and not overly crowded.

Pretty nice boat trip
Tue, Jan 20, 09   12:00 PM marydahl Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We enjoyed the boat ride but saw only a few dolphins and no whale. As we took the whale watching and were wanting to see whales, of course we were disappointed. We did this trip 5 or 6 years ago and although we again did not see whales, we ran into a large group of dolphins jumping up and running along side he boat for almost a 1/2 hour.

We tracked one whale and the crew did a great job at explaining the tendencies of the whale and got us in good position to see it.

Well managed logistics

The process was professional and the crew very competent While on the excursion, was told that this "really isn't the time to look for whales, that comes in a month or two" by a local who regularly liked to take the trip to study dolphins, or so he said. If that is true, I think it would be better for the company to highlight that fact.

No whales and short on porpoises
Tue, Dec 30, 08   10:00 AM JSHarper Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
It was a terrific day in Southern California to be on the water: clear, warm, beautiful!!! The boat and staff were great! We really enjoyed a nice cruise. Sadly, no whales -- not something anyone can guarantee, of course. Then, in the final 5 minutes of the cruise -- just in time to save the refund(!) -- we happened upon a couple of porpoises. As we disembarked, the staff wished each of us a Happy New Year AND reminded us over and over again that we had seen a couple of porpoises. I wouldn't have minded so much if the boat company weren't so blatant about protecting their refund policy.

Just didn't see any whales! Saw dolphins.

The organization and process of ticketing, boarding, and disembarking was great. The crew was nice and they tried hard to find some whales in the two hour cruise. We spotted some riso dolphins near the end of the cruise and got up close for some good pictures of them. The ship was clean and comfortable. They did give us a $5 discount on fishing or whale watching later on.

Did not see any whals or others.

I invited my children from San Fransisco to come and enjoy waching whales. The smal children were very exited. About 2 hours cruise we did not see any of sea animals. They told us we can try one more time. Hopefully the children will come again and partisipate.

We saw 2 whales!!
Fri, Nov 21, 08   3:30 PM ginnyros Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
We really enjoyed our cruise. We first saw sea lions on a buoy. Then one whale was spotted (by the crew), then a second one! Our captain followed these whales (as best as he could) for the rest of the cruise. It was great to actually see whales on a whale watching cruise. They, apparently, don't always find where the whales are hiding. I wished that I would have had a high-speed camera to capture pictures of the whales when they surfaced!

Outstanding Trip

I have been on whale /dolphin watches all over the world. I have NEVER seen so many dolphins. There were hundreds of them frolicking all around the boat. Skilled captain knew just where to go.
