Great activity for out of town guests

We brought my parents who were visiting from out of state. They were able to board easily, have a nice seat for the two hours, see whales the entire time and enjoy the scenery. The captain spoke clearly and shared interesting facts, but didn't talk the whole time, which was really nice. I'll absolutely be back with more of our friends and family who visit!

Tue, Feb 24  10:00 AM BldrGo Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
This was a great trip! We saw lots of whales and they were close to the boat. Also saw a few dolphins. The captain, Todd was super informative with just the right amount of detail and talking. We were on a regular style boat (not catamaran)m and it was very comfortable, lot of areas to sit and stand inside and out.

Great Fishing Day!

This was the first fishing charter I have been on in many years and highly recommend it to anyone experienced or not. The boat itself was sizable and comfortable with plenty of elbow room. What made the trip, was the staff. On occasion, a line would be tangled or caught below the water. The staff was not only present, but proactive to be on the spot and fix it.

It was hassle free and I was so impressed with how nice and accommodating they were. Without that, I would have spent an hour trying to untangle the lines or re-thread a hook. The staff kept everything clean and orderly with a selection of bait readily available. I give this a 5 star rating and will plan another trip soon.

We saw whales and appreciated the captain's sharing of his knowledge about their behavior and their presence just off the Dana Point headlands. It was a lovely experience and I look forward to doing it again.

Lots of Whales, no Dolphins
Thu, Feb 19  2:00 PM Idefourny Female 40-49 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We had a great time and starting seeing whales within 10 min of the cruise. We had altogether 4 sightings of different whales, which was great.

We did not get to see any dolphins which could have been nice as well, but whales were a big success

The crew took time locating whales and dolphins for us. They wanted us to have the best experience possible. They believe in what they do and it shows. It was a treat for us to share their enthusiasm.

This is the third time we have attended this event. Our seniors from the community center here in Joshua Tree very much enjoyed their experience this time. The captain and staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. We will return again.

Everyone in our group, from my 5 year old to myself loved the tour. My 10 year old, who received the tour for her birthday, still talks about it to anyone who will listen. I believe she rated it right up there with her days at Disneyland. The captain was very interesting to listen to as he talked about the whales, dolphins and sea lions.

Thank you again

Dana Pride was uncrowded for a holiday cruise. Captain was very energetic and informative. Seas were calm, sun was out. A great adventure for the family.

Didn't see any whales!!
Sun, Feb 15  2:30 PM irina86 Female 20-29 International Tourist(s) Unspecified
We booked this tour in the hopes of seeing whales. However, going into the sea, there was so much fog and it was so windy and cold that it was impossible to see something. If you are standing in the back of the boat, you can barely hear anything the tour guide was saying.

On the way back we saw some dolphins which was nice. The tour organization gave us free passes for next time, since we didn't see any whales. However, we wont be coming back again.
