Gloomy Weather...Great trip.

My 15 year old daughter and I went out on the Dana Pride last Friday. Weather over cast and light rain but if you prepare for weather, it's no big deal. We had a great time. It was a first for both of us. Got to see a slew of dolphins but the whales alluded us right until the end. We were about to head back to port when the Captain got a call from another ship that they had spotted a gray. So rather than return on time and miss the whale, the Captain choose to speed the boat over to the sighting and we got to see a lone whale heading south. Tells me a lot about Captain's dedication to the customers on board, for although the dolphins are are beautiful creatures, especially up close, , we came to see a whale! ...Great informative narrative by the Captain throughout the day.. Would absolutely do it again. Hint...had we not been on the last trip of the day...2 pm...we may not have had the option to stay the extra 45 or so minutes it took to see the whale, so that is the trip I would book in the future.

We all had a great time. The skipper and crew were very efficient, knowledgable and accomodating.

We plan to go again in a few weeks.

Dana Point is a beautiful area, the wharf is interesting and fun, and the Wind and Sea restaurant on the wharf had yummy soup and fresh calamari to warm us up after the trip. We had a great time and will certainly do it again, and recommend it to friends and out-of-town visitors.

Evenn though I have led many children on nature trips as a teacher inthe last 30 years, I learned a lot about the animals we saw and about how to communicate knowledge. The captain expressed his knowledge in a fun way. wanoderful.

the weather was great and the boat ride was as well. We saw a mother and little one (whale) and a large pod of dalphins. It was done well with a great deal of info on the animals.

A glorious day, did not matter that we saw whales. A nice surprise that we were given a rain check because no whales were spotted. Just the boat ride, view of the coast, the fresh air, and hints of Catalina made it all worth while.
