Beautiful day, beautiful boat, beautiful animals!

Dana Pride is a clean and tidy boat, well taken care of. The unobstructed view from the upper deck, outfitted with tables and benches, was a plus as we did not feel crowded. The pace was easy going and allowed for several nice sequences of photos. Would definitely go again with Dana Wharf on the Dana Pride.

Our first whale watching trip and boy did we get lucky. A rare appearance this far south was a family of Orca whales.

OMG I highly recommend you to go Whale Whatching. It WAS an amazing experience! We saw lots of killer Whales, and some Dolphins! Next time I go I hope I see lots of Dolphins instead of lots of Whales!

Once in a life time trip Jan 3, 2012

The crew was fantastic, informative, professional, experienced, zealous of what they do. They managed the trip exceptionally. We were fortunate to track a whale for an hour, see sea lions, blue shark and best of all, the Dana Point sighting of the Orcas. The crew did a great job in making this a better experience than I ever imagined.

OMG - Orcas

My two friends from Texas and I had the privilege and honor to be on the Dana Wharf whale watching trip that got to experience the pod of Orcas off the coast of Dana Point on January 3, 2012. It is definitely an event that goes in all of our Top Ten Most Exciting Events of our lives. The Captain and staff were outstanding. I wish future watchers the luck that we had to be part of a rare event such as this.

My trip was a once in a lifetime

I was blessed enough to observe one gray whale on my trip, on 1/3/12 After we viewed the gray fro a while, we went to see what else we might find, and I was blessed, fortunate enough to be on the Dana Pride noon ride, and we found the pod of 10 orcas. This was my first trip since a kid on a field trip in 3rd grade. Only downside, was the dude "narrating" the trip never stopped. So for essentially 2 hours, some dude on a loud PA system, was just yackin, and yackin, and..... it was really a downer. Otherwise would have been a 5-star trip.

Great trip, 2 very cooperative gray whales.

We spotted a gray whale on the surface just as we were leaving the harbor, then locked on two two grays who were on the surface off the bow for more than an hour. Great views of flukes. When the dolphins came to play, one of the whales surfaced and rolled over. Really a great show.

It was an interesting experience. The crew was very helpful. If iit was a little bit busier than it would've been better but it was still a good time.

Friendly staff, clean and comfortable boat, very knowledgable audio accompanying sightings, beautiful view of the coastline. Did not see whales, but two groups of dolphins and one group of sea lions. Even though it was 75 degrees out, the wind out on the ocean is biting - dress accordingly. Overall, recommended as a fun and unique outing for couples and families alike.

Capt did a good job of finding a whale for us to view. He explained the whale migration pattern and its surfacing technique
