We had a terrific time. Loved the dolphins and informative guide. Wish the whales would've shown up but they were "shy" the day wee went.

The fast and comfortable catamaran boat provides the basis for best opprtunities of watching sealife.

There were given so much data and additional informations about the animals watched - that's great!

Really highly recommened!

I was not told that the 4 ticket i bought for the trip with my wife, son and his girlfriend were going to be on a boat that was designed for kids. If you go out of Dana Point do NOT go on a Sunday unless you want to spend your trip fixing your lines that will be crossed the whole trip. Felt i should have been informed before i went! BTW, Captain did not find the fish!

Bad Weather - Bad Experience
Sat, Jun 23, 12   5:30 PM bgsync Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
The weather for the trip became unpleasant, in particular the winds and high swells. Caused significant swaying of the boat, even to the point where the water level came up to the side of the deck on several occasions as the boat swayed from side to side. The crew tried several locations, but were unsuccessful in making he experience more pleasant. While I don't expect to catch fish, I would hope the Dana Warf would use its judgement in possible postposing or rescheduling trips when it is certain to be a bad experience for its customers.

They are the best tour boat co I ever went with

This company is so awesome. If you don't see dolphins or whales they will give you a free pass for another trip. But out of 10 excursions, this only happened once. They are the best!

Dont be turned off by the rude girl in the office
Sun, Jun 17, 12   2:00 PM TRadek Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We almost didnt book the tour because of the rude woman in the office that we talked to in person when we stopped by to find out about the tour. But instead, did not book tour then, cause she was so short with us and made us feel like "who cares if you book with us or not, but make a decision, cause I have better things to do than talk to you tourists", We live in a VERY touristy area in the rocky mountains, so I know how employees and "owners" can be, and how it doesnt always mean you will be treated badly on your tour just because the person you book it through is rude..so instead, I went back to our condo, looked on line and booked it, being optimistic, and we were SO glad! We went for the tour, and the crew was great, we had a great time, and even though we did not spot whales, it was still a blast, we saw LOTS of dolphins, the crew had lots of great knowledge, we got out on the ocean, and when we got off the boat they gave us a coupon to come free another time, being true to their word that if you dont spot whales you can go free again! Impressed They stood behind their guarantee to see whales! We went the next day, had JUST as great a time, and got to see some whales! we enjoyed the cataraman boat more than the other boat (we did one one day, and the other the next), it just seemed smoother. But either was great and I would do it again. My only suggestion, book online, avoid the office lady so you wont be turned off by the office lady experience, and have a great time! Also, dont book at the end of your trip in case you get to go out again for free!! Cudos to the crew for a job well done, and prayers for the others who have to work in the office with her, i hope you are paid well!!

It was fun!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Fri, Jun 15, 12   5:00 PM rrussell569 Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
It was really fun. I enjoyed it when the crew members talked to us and told us about all the dolphins we were seeing. Having them share their knowledge really made the trip more meaningful. The kids enjoyed it. It would have been better if we would have seen a whale, but I guess it wasn't meant to be. Next time. It was a nice bonus to receive a 50% voucher to come again. We may definitely use it in the near future since we are local.

Whale Watching Experience
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

My wife and I went on the evening whale watching trip, and it was a great experience! We did not see any whales but saw dozens if not hundreds of playful dolphins and it was a treat. We also saw some sea lions, but we absolutely loved the dolphins, and can't wait to go back again. The information while on the boat was also very informative, great crew!

1\2 Day Fishing Trip on the Pride w/son
Sun, Jun 10, 12   12:45 PM andymaan Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
I decided to take my son on a 1\2 day fishing trip. We arrived early and checked in without any issue. The staff was very helpful both in the store and on the boat. They give you a parking permit, so you have move your car to another lot close by. The staff welcomed us aboard the boat and the journey began. The staff really did a good job helping folks rig-up and give advice when needed. The first and second stops provided zero fish for everyone aboard. On the 3rd stop, people starting hooking-up. My son and I started caching Sculpin and Calico Bass. Again, the staff was quick to help my son getting the fish aboard. All in all, we had a great day on the water with a helpful crew. Be sure to bring some extra cash, they charge for your bag and to fillet the fish.
