Great Day on the Dana Pride
Sat, Jan 11  2:00 PM ADWDC9P Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
It was a perfectly beautiful sunny January day! We made new friends, enjoyed the crew, and enjoyed watching a gray whale! It was our daughter's first experience out on a boat. It was the perfect way to introduce her, and dismiss any fears she had. Thank you!

Not the fault of anyone but disappointing lack of whales seen. Dolphins and seals, but as So Cal locals that was not unique. Convenient enough.

Educational

The captain and crew are filled with interesting knowledge of all forms of ocean life and the current status of our ecosystem. If you can't find the whales, you will see playful dolphins, seals and pelicans. Clean and not expensive. 2 hours for a wonderful trip is worth every penny. Plus you can get 1/2 price ticket if you don't see the whales. Go!

Saw whales and dolphins

The boat was a little late leaving the dock but the delay was worth it. It was a beautiful day and the captain was very knowledgeable about whales and we saw two gray whales and many dolphins. I would recommend this trip to any one looking for an exciting day in southern California.

Captain was authoritative, informative

Great adventure... better than the amusement parks. Kids, adults all loved it.. food, drink and real wild life in the pacific coast's version of the Serengeti.. Worth every penny!! The Captain was filled with information, knew the spots to find the wild life, the boat had great viewing even with lots of folks on board... They proved our best tourist attraction is the wild blue at the edge of our coast not inland!!!! Dolphin's were as curious as us!! Whales! Grey whale stories! Had a beer and a sandwich while experiencing the great outdoors come to life in front of our eyes. Their boat was large enough to feel very safe yet small enough to feel we were on a special tour. Dana Harbor is awesome too.. good food, bars, and a little cool shopping and even a museum...

Appreciated the consideration given the whale so it wouldn't be hemmed in. Captain's narration was educational and informative.

We were able to see a gray whale for an extended period of time as he traveled south. Then we were able to experience a large pod of dolphins swimming close to the boat . It was such a special experience.

We had a great time.

My family and I had a great time. The staff was helpful and the boat was nice. The Captan was very knowledgable and told us about whaling\fishing history and stories of the past during the trip. We saw a mega pod of dolphins (like 300+ dolphins), a whale, and some sea lions. Highly recommended.

Great Afternoon Cruise

It was a beautiful trip up the coast of Dana Point. We found ourselves surrounded by over 1,000 dolphins, who stayed with the boat for over an hour. The boat is a large, clean catamaran with a very professional crew. I highly recommend this company.
