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.

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.

Not only was the weather spectacular, we were so impresed with our captain and crew. Their friendly attitude and knowedge of the whale migrations and other water animals made the trip so interesting. I have checkd off an item on my bucket list! Thank you!

Different venue than I thought

My mistake. I thought I had reserved the Dana Point location at the Institute at the other end of the pier. Fortunately we arrived early enough to still participate as scheduled. No problem with electronic check-in. The crew were very pleasant & professional. Would recommend to all.

Plenty of dolphins.... but no whales! However, we were offered a ticket for another try, but unfortunately, couldn't make that date. We thought that was very fair!
