We had a blast. Thank you so much for the great experience. The boat captain was knowledgeable and was very imfomative. The bartender was extremely nice and was even trying to be helpful with my unruly childs mild meltdown. The weather was great and couldn't have asked for a better experience. .. except for maybe more whales. But I realize that that is under nature's control. Thank you again and I will highly recpmmend you to all of my friends!

We traveled for week in Southern California with our granddaughters and had a great time with whale watching a part of what we did with them. Very informative boat captain helped us learn a lot about whales that we didn't knkw before. Well worth it!

The day was beautiful, and the trip to watch whales was perfect. The captain offered very informative and detail narration about the whales, making the trip that much more enjoyable.

I am regular customer of Dana Dwarf, usually they know what they are doing. But today 02/07/2015 they did they best to reduce amount of fish caught to almost zero. We had 34 anglers on boat and we ha got only 2 keepers. I do not remember any of places where we have been today from my previous trips. And usually crew change place when there are no bites, but not today. We spent hours on same places without any fish. I believe it happened on purpose, we had strange guy on a boat, probably from government, who has counted amount of fish have been caught. I think crew was afraid of something and did their best to show him that during their fishing trips no harm can be done to nature.

Great tour company. Crew was very friendly and professional. Located a group of 5-7 California Grey Whales within 20 minutes of leaving port and followed them for the next hour. Also saw sea lions and a group of playful dauphins.

Immediately after leaving the port there were pods of dolphins. They seemed happy to greet us because they swam towards us and then proceeded to jump out of the water. Soon thereafter we encountered 4 whales. It was all so great. Thanks!

Nice and pleasant short trip.

Saw a few whales and dolphin but didn't get very close.

The captain was very informative, but rambled on a bit too long, especially considering that passengers were trying to take video of the whales.

we shared our tour with a preschool group of 36 children and some parents. the kids used the ship as a water based playground. they were un guarded and never stopped running. bad job by the parents! wished we were notified and we would have rescheduled later
