This was the best whale watching trip I've been on. We did one last year with this company and enjoyed it so I rebooked with them this year. It was really a great trip. We saw whales and then bottle nosed dolphins. The captain sped up the boat so they would follow and jump in the wake, it was really a good time. They are great!

It was a hot and fun day onthe boat and my kids had a good time being onthe boat . The sad side was the fishing was not great at all we only cought 1 fish on the trip , which dissapointed my kids and from going on again . so it's good to check the fish reports before you go , to see if the fish are biting .

Great Crew

The friendly crew members on the Reel Fun were always present and ready to help. The boat is smaller and low to the water which makes for a good trip for kids. Capt was willing to move around to look for fish. brkfst burrito was well cooked and flavorful.

If they rotated the anglers so everyone gets a chance at the stern life would be perfect. :-)

Too cold and windy for whale watching
Wed, Dec 31, 08   10:00 AM olgapinkoson Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
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.

Great priced fun!

I go Whale watching every year but this year I brought along 2 new additions: a DSLR and my girlfriend. We had a great time with a nice group and friendly and knowledgeable staff. Gorgeous day, started right on time, interacted with common dolphins and saw other types, as well as sea lions (whale migration season was almost over). Extremely satisfied and will always go with them!

great fun

We had a great time even though the fishing was a little slow, my future daughter-in-law caught a 25 inch halibut, which won the pool. She was so thrilled that she caught it and my son and I didn't catch anything worth keeping. It was fun for us all. For a family outing would recommend this trip to all.

Amazing whale watching experience
Sun, Feb 14, 10   4:00 PM ohwchris Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
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.

Whale Watch, Sunday Feb. 8, 2009

Enjoyed the trip tremendously. While rain threatened and it was chilly,the experience was great. It was the first Whale Watch for my wife and she really enjoyed it. The boat was clean, the crew was very courteous and knowledgeable. They made the effort to make sure that if Whales were to be found that we would get to see them. Nice Job! Definitely a return trip in the future.

Entertaining two hours
Sun, Sep 4, 11   12:00 PM oconnortrip Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We enjoyed the Noon Whale Watching tour on the catamaran. The boat was clean and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The captain worked diligently to find whales. We had several great whale sightings that were quite impressive. We also really enjoyed the dolphin pod that we encountered. It was helpful that we did not have a full cruise. It would have been pretty crowded with a full boat. The view from the front of the boat was great and we all enjoyed ourselves. Our trip was pretty choppy, so if you have any problems with motion sickness, you need to prepare for that.

The parking lot has a four hour maximum and they do have attendants patrolling the lot, so plan your trip so you fit into that time frame. The company doesn't provide permits for the two hour tours. We almost ran out of time because we had brunch before the tour.
