Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

This two hour excursion is just the right amount of time to be out at sea with kids. The Dana Pride arrived and departed on time and they took us to a blue whale feeding spot. We saw a blue whale and several pods of common dolphins. It was a great experience and I would take this trip again during humpback whale season.

This was a great outdoor activity! My husband and I had a wonderful time and the employees were very helpful and full of fun facts. They all seemed like they really knew what they were talking about in regards to the animals we were seeing.

While we were not lucky enough to see a whale, we did see hundreds, if not thousands of dolphin. They swam along with the boat and jumped out of the water. The captain and crew were knowledgeable and friendly. The views if the coast line were worth the cost of the cruise alone. I would definitely recommend this tour for everyone.

We went out on a Tues (1/2 price day) and the crowd was small I am guessing due to the cold cloudy weather that morning. But we lucked out and it turned absolutely warm and sunny before 2PM when we left. The captain took us right out to the whales and before we knew what was happening we were surrounded by many whales of all types - blues, fins and humpbacks - all in the same area and popping up and spouting all around us. The Captain said it was the first time he has ever seen so many kinds of whales in the same location at one time doing antics together. They were spouting, rolling and spiraling at the same time. Very exciting to watch and so worth the time and trouble to go. We took lots of pictures but the best part is just sitting and watching it as it happens. I'll forever have the picture in my mind. Thanks for the wonderful deal. Best money we ever spent!

great trip. Saw 7-10 dolphins and several whales. Captain was always informing and teaching what kind of whales etc. will do again.

Captain was friendly, knowledgable, and knew right where to take us to get the best view of the whale(s).

Had several sitings, one pretty close up. Then seeing all the dolphins was at treat. Smaller group, which

gives more opportunity to take pics and interact. Thoroghly recommend this trip.

It was fun for the most part. The crew was cool; however, it would have been nice to real something in.

What a beautiful afternoon, staff was excellent and we saw two mom whales with two babies very close to shore! What a treat, we also saw maybe a thousand dolphins? It was simply amazing, looked like a fake movie set.

George and the rest of the crew are fantastic! This was our second whale watching with your company, and both times were perfect. We saw grey whales this time, and last time we saw blue whales and hundreds of dolphins. I love the respect that your crew shows for nature.

We also bought the video, and love it.

Thanks! We will be back to take another trip.

Wonderful experience!

About five minutes into our adventure, we were entertained by a group of California sea lions relaxing on a buoy. Shortly thereafter, we saw dolphins diving and swimming. There must have been one hundred of these loveable, beautiful, graceful creatures. And, to top off our trip, we saw four magnificient blue whales. Words can not describe the beauty we beheld.

Our two crew members were very personable and professional. It was clear that they were as excited as all of us about seeing nature's incredible gifts.

The catamaran was the perfect size and everyone on board was able to see everything. It's a great ride!

We are planning another trip to California to see the grey whales, and will book with Catamaran Adventure Cruises.

It was a great trip! Plenty to see. Blue whales, hammerhead sharks, sunfish, pelicans and finn whales. This 2 hour trip is the perfect amount of time to see everything. Just 4 miles off the coast. The boat was very roomy and comfortable. Defineltly woth every dime!

not really a whale watch.....good dolphin adventure.....good narration for them..I..would have like to know the frequency of a chance to see a whale or whales instead of " the capt worked real hard to find one yesterday".......or as we turned for port we were told " now we will go back and see the whale the capt spotted "..........which was really never brought up again as we returned to port with no further mention of any whale s.........i realize these sittings are hit and miss from other whale watch trips i have been on. clean boat,really courteous crew.

Knowledgeable crew, clean and well-equipped boat, thoughtful navigation.

Besides seeing whales and other marine animals, it's worth it for the boat ride!

The folks at Dana Wharf did a wonderful job of taking care of us and seeing to it that we saw as much sea life (whales, dolphin, and sea lions) as there were to see.

The crew was clearly interested in providing us a memorable experience.

Well done!
