Incredible experience.........we did see a whale, and many many dolphins. The kids got a HUGE thrill from it. And no seasickness!! The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. The boat was clean, lots of seating on the upper area, and plenty of snacks available if needed. Great trip and would return there next time we visit!!! Thanks!!!!

Our family really enjoyed the whale watching excursion. The boat was nice, the crew seemed very knowledgable and tried to give us a good experience. They did search for the gray whale, and even extended our trip by a few minutes as we finally spotted 1 at the end. The sighting was very brief and hard to get a anything other than a quick look at the back of one-maybe my expectations were too high. We did see many more dolphins which was very exciting. The only reason I did not give then 5 stars was the lack of a better view of a gray whale. I would go again with this company.

Very knowledgeable
Mon, Mar 21, 11   12:00 PM Nareman Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The Captain and others that work aboard the Dana Pride were very knowledgeable about the marine life and were able to spot the marine life from afar and tell us what kind of mammal it was. It made the trip a lot better and the family I had from out of town loved it and were so glad we got to see a pod of dolphins, a sea lion and three gray whales. Thank you! :-)

No Whales

We did not see any whales which was disappointing but lots of dolphins and sea lions. It was rough waters but fun. Next time we will bring blankets - the four year old with us did enjoy it but said it was too long. I guess two hours can be long for a little guy. We all had fun and the crew was great. Departures and arrivals were timely.

Few fish caught, but nice day for a cruise. Crew was friendly and professional. We had a group of 10 adults and boy scouts from Lake Arrowhead, Ca. and all had fun.

Great crew and beautiful whales!

George and the rest of the crew are fantastic! This was our second whale watching with your company, and both times were perfect. We saw grey whales this time, and last time we saw blue whales and hundreds of dolphins. I love the respect that your crew shows for nature. We also bought the video, and love it. Thanks! We will be back to take another trip.

Whale following
Sat, Mar 19, 11   10:00 AM divyarshan Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Must say we were very lucky to spot a whale 10 - 15 minutes out in the ocean and kept following it for about half an hour. The crew was very helpful in providing information about the pattern of the whale being observed - when it goes for a big dive, when it will surface back, and the sort. It was a perfect day out - being the 10 am tour we did not have much people on the trip and could move around easily. I came with my 16 month old who had her jacket on. One of the crew members also offered their jacket to keep her warmer. That was a nice gesture, isn't it? Then we spotted a few sea lions which kept posing for the photos. It was good that the crew did their most to search and find as many life they could spot in the ocean. Overall I would highly recommended it though I do not know how my feedback would have been if we did not spot any !

We enjoyed our trip tremendously, treated from start to finish as if we were part of there family. Given a complete narrative of our surroundings and marine life.They were as enthusiastic as we were upon whale sightings. I would recommend this trip highly.

The day we went we did not see any whales and saw 5 dolphins from a distance. Because of this we were given free passes to do another tour any time in the future. The captain was well informed and able to describe the dophins etc. We would do this tour again.

It was a delightful experience for all six of us..

Tue, Mar 15, 11   2:00 PM MLBurgoyne Female 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Six of us, three generations -- ranging in age from 79 to 22 took the tour, and everyone of us enjoyed it very much. This is the third time we have taken this tour, and each one seems to be more fun than the last. The weather was perfect, the tour guides very knowledgeable and helpful, and we saw lots of activity in the water. I didn't see a whale myself, but we saw several the last two years we were here. More fun than the whales are the hundreds of dolphin that we saw this time. They chase the wake, and surround the boat. We also saw hundreds of pelican feeding and diving for fish. It was just a very enjoyable, fun and delightful experience for all six of us.

We couldn't have asked for a better experience! We are looking forward to doing this again in July/August to see Blue Whales & we'll be choosing the same outfitters! The captain and deck hands were all great, knowledgeable and friendly. Their experience enabled us to not only see grey whales but to follow their path as they migrated down the coast. This is truly an experience our family will never forget- fun for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors! Children 3 to 93 will all be impressed and captivated not just by the ocean animals but also by the captains banter and knowledge of all things "ocean"! We enjoyed this excursion so much that we went twice the week we were visiting!
