We had an amazing time. We were not expecting to see whales due to the season but a Minske whale surfaced several times, and he came close to the boat even though tour guide warned us they are kind of shy. We then had tons of dolphins sightings, they were speeding along beside and in front of our boat. So much fun! Clean, on time, knowledgeable guide. Recommended!

We had the best time. My son and I did this same trip last year and it did not disappoint this year.

Staff were very accommodating and friendly on the phone and in person. We were on the catamaran and it was awesome! We saw plenty on dolphins but no whales;( but understandable, there's no predicting Mother Nature. We will be returning to use them again soon!

Nice dolphin show but no whales

The boat was very nice and not crowded. We encountered bottlenose dolphins but no whales. We could've spent more time watching the dolphins.

An Enjoyable Short Excursion

We are repeat customers for the two-hour boat trips on the Dana Pride - it's something we treat ourselves to whenever we have out-of-town friends and family visiting, and no one ever seems to get tired of it. There are almost always at least dolphin sightings, even if the whales are not around, and we have had memorable experiences in the center of huge pods of dolphins AND whales AND bird feeding frenzies. Always fun.

Although we didn't see any whales, the entire trip was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and nice from the moment we signed in to the time we left the boat. The boat is beautiful and very well maintained. I felt very safe.

See you soon!!

Great time with the Dolphins!

Unfortunately, we didn't see any whales, but we did find a pod of hundreds of dolphins! It was quite amazing, and we spent a lot of time out there watching them swim on all sides of the boat. Occasionally, we'd get a little show from a few of them doing some fancy jumps! It was great, we loved it!

This is a whale of a show!

I went on this whale watch last September. It was so fantastic (saw Blue Whales, Fin Whales and dolphins) that I took relatives on it this May. Once again, we saw lots of dolphins, who surfed with the boat, and the first sighting for the season of a Blue Whale and the 35-foot long baby. Quite exciting. I would recommend this to anyone, who enjoys wildlife, and doesn't get seasick. It can be quite choppy. Take layers of clothes, because it can be 15 degrees colder on the water. I think the 2-4 pm time is the best. The pilot finds the whales on the earlier whale trip. No meal is interrupted on the 2-4 pm slot. It can be colder and sun is lower on the 4-6 slot.
