A nice way to spend a couple hours with friends or family but it should be named "Dolphin Watching Tour." I have taken this trip 3 times in the last couple of years (in March) and have yet to see any whales. Although we have not seen any whales, at least we have seen dolphins every time - it was fun to see them. Can't expect to see whales every time but so far it has been 0 for 3.

We had free passes to use later. We will try one more time. I would like to express that all the people in the crew were so nice and friendly.

Meet a whale

It was a great experience to see the whale.

It was little far from the boat and I could not see them in big. But there is a rule to be in distance, so it is understandable. It is a disappointment that I did not see even one dolphin this time.

I should come back again.

We left at eight in the morning and were off in the search of a whale. just when i thought we were ready to head back, we got a report of a whale in the area nearby... sure enough we saw one.. and it BREACHED fully out of the water!!!!!!!! landing with a big splash... and it blew out of its blow hole a few times and did a few tale flips for us... it was happy to see us.. =) great, fun time if you get the chance to go.

Whale Palooza

The Captain took us to some great locations and it really paid off. We saw two large groups of gray whales (11-15 in each) and a bald eagle on Catalina Island and offshore bottle nose dolphins jumping in our wake. It was warm and beautiful and the crew and Captain were as excited and enthusiastic about our adventure as we were!

Too cold and windy for whale watching

Two hours was 1 hr too long because it was cloudy, foggy and freezing cold, (even though I brought 2 blankets). My teenagers couldn't wait to go back because it was so cold & windy. We did see few dolphins and seals. I would recommend this trip to my friends only during the summer or spring. We got some coupons toward our next trip at the end of the tour which was nice.

Fantastic Experience For Anyone

I've brought exs whale watching with me here annually because I can't get enough and it's so relaxing. That's in large part due to the boat. I've been whale watching elsewhere and get incredibly seasick but on the Dana Pride I have no such issue so she's the only boat I watch on now. The crew is immensely knowledgeable and warm. I bought Valentine's cruise tickets for my date and I but unfortunately traffic ruined our plans. Dana Wharf was gracious in transferring us to a boat ride the following day and we got lucky - double whale tail fin display and several sightings in bright sunlight. That along with a few beers and we weren't hurting about missing the champagne and chocolate ride. Thanks again and we'll be back every year, possibly several times during the season.

Amazing whale watching experience

We got extremely lucky on the Valentines day sunset cruise and stumbled upon a pod of fin whales. They are ordinarily shy and aloof, but we saw them surface and even lunge feed several times from close proximity. Pretty amazing. Even without the great sightings, the boat was smooth, the crew was nice, the other passengers were gracious and fun. Go.
