Disappointed that we didn't see any whales
Sat, Mar 3, 12   8:00 AM lindakallen Female 70+ Local Couple on a Date
We went whale watching on a beautiful Sat. morning at 8:00. It was nippy, but clear as a bell. The man that narrarated the trip on the loud speaker was quite informative. We saw several pods of dophins going through the water which was fun to see. However, the closest we came to seeing a whale was a few bubbles on the surface of the water. I guess a whale was swimming in the area, but too lazy to surface, so we could see him. Since we got a discounted price on the trip, we definitely felt it was worth the money.

...we saw plenty of dolphins and other wild life! The views of the coast from the water are breath-taking. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. I would take another tour with this company in hopes of seeing whales!

The trip out included interesting narration on whales and porpus. We pretty quickly found ourselves in a group of about a hundred porpus' and two grey whales. We had an escellent time.

I took my 5 year old grandson on this whale watching experience and neither of us were disappointed! We observed curious sea lions, playful dolphins "surfing" in the wake of the boat, and two gray whales. The staff was knowledgable and greatly contributed to our positive experience.

When you take trips like this you never know for sure if you will actually see marine life. I've been on the trip twice now and have had the pleasure of seeing whales, dolphins and sea otters each time. The crew is very knowledgable and friendly. This makes a great date as well. You have time to converse in the galley and also see some great views.

We are 10 friends that belong to the Red Hat Society. This was our February outing (2/25/12) - two days after the large group of dolphins were spotted. We did not see any dolphin but we did find a grey whale and followed him for about an hour. The crew of the boat were very informative, helpful and a lot of fun. We had been on a whale watching tour out of Santa Barbara last September and the crew was a dud compared to the crew we had on Saturday.

Great day out in the ocean!!

My family and I went out whale watching on the Dana Pride. The captain did an outstanding job communicating what to look for and locating a grey whale. Once the captain positioned us near the whale, he maintained a consistent distant. This allowed my 2 year old daughter and I to build some great memories and take lots of pictures. We have returned to the Dana Pride for a second whale adventure and this time we saw two grey whales. Definitely would recommend to anyone that wants to see a whale out in the wild!

We had an excellent day whale watching. The Captain was super informative and we spent about an hour following one Grey Whale up the coast. It was awesome!

Never disappointed with Dana Wharf Sportfishing

Spent last Wed (2/21) on the afternoon whale watch with my son and his friend. The crew was TIRELESS in their efforts to find whales, going over the allotted time by almost 45 minutes. Thanks to their patience & know-how, we saw four fin whales--GLORIOUS! That's on top of seeing a pod of dolphins, which are always amazing to see. We go on about two whale watches a year, and we are always so happy with DWS; they also happen to make the best grilled cheese sandwiches in the galley!

Perfect length of tour. Perfect amount of passengers on ship. I have been on other trips that lasted way too long and had way too many people on the boat. We had a great time!!!
