Although we did not see any whales, we did see hundreds of small white dolphins. This is our third trip aboard the DANA PRIDE. It is a beautiful boat. Very comfortable with a good captain and crew. The water was as smooth as silk and the trip was great. We look forward to our next trip aboard.

Great Trip.If only the FISH would have cooperated
Sun, Apr 3, 11   12:45 PM RobertBell Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The fishing trip was mainly for my grandaughter. The Captain and mates were very friendly and attentive to the clients. They made sure that everything was anailable at all times. The fish I caught they immediately handled them once they were in the boat and stowed them to be cleaned after the trip. However, the water temperature was out of the Captains control, and that made for tough fishing.He announced that the colder water stifles the fish appetite. He tried 6 different holes,though. He put forth a tremendous effort to try and connect. I caught two keepers, and that was the most keepers on the boat. My grandaughter caught one (undersize) but that made the whole trip worthwhile. That was her first fish caught. To her it was a 2000# billfish!! Now let me also give kudos to the staff at the tackle shop. We were running late due to an accident(not ours!) on I-5. Donna was fantastic in making sure we would be all set as soon as we got there! She helped us go quickly from the shop to the boat with only a minute to spare. Thanks again Donna. You helped us pull it off! Even though the fishing was tough, we had a great time, and I would highly recommend it to a family with children.

Great time!

We had a great time and yes we saw several whales. The amount of people on the boat was just right with everyone able to see because it wasn't crowded. We went during the Festival of Whales and the whole event was wonderful and we hope to make it again next year!

It was very fun, we saw a gray whale and a ton of dolphins, but we went on the 8:00 - 10:00 am tour and it was absolutely freezing, so make sure you dress warm.

The caption and his crew were those kind of people who love doing their jobs. They were just as excited as we were to see the animals. I would do this again if it weren't for the fact I got seasick.

the crew was very helpful the fish just was not biting we tried sevral locations even stayed out a little longer than scheduled the food was very good and this was my sons first time out so it was good for them and they had a blast we will use them again for me i like to charter the boat and go for big game fish like marlin or sword fish ect so if this is wa=hat u want i suggest look into something else but if u have young kids and never been before then this is a good one to do cheap and fun for a family

A pesar de que no observamos ballenas, el viaje valio la pena. Observamos muchos delfines, algunos leones marinos y focas. Sin embargo hay que decir que tienen mucho por mejorar en el servicio, ya que no parecia que hicieran esfuerzos por ubicar ballenas. Tal parecia que esperaban que alguna se cruzara en su camino, mas que buscarlas.

Ordering tickets was the easiest part of the trip. The boat left late and the deck hands seemed to be uninterested in fishing. I wont be going back. One other thing everyone is casting so be sure to wear glasses so you wont get your eye ripped out.

Great Boat - But No Whales!
Thu, Jan 1, 09   12:00 PM rlovejoy Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
The boat was great, very clean and the crew was nice. Unfortunately due to the dense fog, even at noon-time, no whales or dolphins were seen. The group is honoring their guarantee and as long as we don't lose our ticket we can try again in the same season with no expiration date.

Whale encounter

Being that it was mid-February, we didn't really think we'd be as fortunate as se were to see and follow two "greys" for an hour or more. Unfortunately Federal laws prohibit you from getting too close, but the trip was well worthwhile in finding them and being able to photograph them. They, the two grey whales, weren't very showy.....but it was truly a wonderful experience to see whales in the wild. Highly recommend this Dana Wharf 2-hour trip on a 2-for-Tuesday cruise.
