Don't miss this great adventure!

This excursion was WONDERFUL! The captain of the boat worked hard to find us Whales and was very knowledgeable and educational. He maintained a respectable, yet close, distance to the animals. The trip was 2 hours and we were all really sorry to see it end. This is an inexpensive and wonderful way to spend an afternoon and is definitely something I will do again.

We had a great time, the crew is young and very informative and respectful of the sea-life! As the captain saw the different dolphins (common, bottle nose & rizzos) he told us a lot of information of the different species that was very interesting. We also saw a whale and her calf, we really liked how respectful the crew was of the whale "mom" and calf and kept their distance . Wonderful outing and the crew was great!

A very pleasant experience

We thoroughly enjoyed the whale watching experience. Of course, it helped that we were able to follow a grey whale for about 1/2 an hour, and observed a school of 60 or more dolphins, finalized by viewing a small group of a larger species of dolpins. The captain of the boat shared knowledge regarding the different sea creatures we observed, which enhanced the experience. All in all, I would reccommend it and would do it again.

The whole trip was great. Weather was great, fishing was even better. Lots of keepers and just as many fun to reel in throw-backs. Captain and deck hand were really terrific as always.

We didn't see any whales due to the dense fog. Better to go later in the day I guess. Still, the crew took us into a pod of dolphins which was fun to see.

Whale Watching
Sat, Jan 7, 12   10:00 AM karenmiller1 Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
Although we didn't see any whales I was not disappointed. I saw dolphins playing and jumping in the water. I had never seen them other than Sea World before. They were very close to the boat and I could see the different types of dolphins. It was very exciting. I also saw many sea lions floating in the ocean with their flippers pointed towards the sun. The two hours was the perfect amount of time. It was a wonderful experience I plan on enjoying again.

Awesome Experience

My husband and I took our three children and my mother on this whale watching excursion. The crew was courteous, professional and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, we didn't see any grey whales, but we did encounter a pod of at least a 100 bottlenosed dolphins. They swam right up to the boat, giving us a front row seat to the beauty and majesty of these amazing creatures. My kids can't wait to go again and neither can I.

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!
