Pleasant cruise; no whales; rainy day.

As it was starting to rain, we did not have the visibility necessary to see lots of whales. The crew, however, was delightful, and we were issued "whale checks" when disembarking so we can plan another cruise for free at some future date.

Very satisfied

My friend and I were pleased with this activity, especially at the Tuesday 1/2 price, which we thought was well worth it. The captain (?) gave a very informative talk through out the trip, so we learned a lot about whales. When we came upon a whale(s), the captain maneuvered the boat so as to help us better see the whale and other sea animals. The captain was respectful of the animals, not to disturb them too much with the boat.

Meeting Our Big Water Neighbors

The trip on the Dana Pride from Dana Wharf was two hours of excitement and pleasure. We saw a pod of four whales that we followed for a long time, watching them surface and showing us their backs and tails and sometimes a snout or two. At one point we had pods on both sides of the boat. Dolphins surfed in our wake, and the Captain was alert to do some rapid U-turns so we could watch them play. The Captain also displayed his love of his work, his environment, his knowledge of the animals that he passed along to his passengers. Many of the gray whale facts were very surprising, and reminded me of elephant characteristics that I do know something about. I didn't know that dolphins "see" things via echo-location, similar to sonogram operations in medicine.

Loved this whole trip in every way. What a great bargain, too!

on e of the best I've ever experienced

It was a cold and very foggy day but the experience we had exceded the weather. Even Capt. Dave was enthused as we saw a pod of 4 grey whales one with a white fluke. Toward the end of our outing another pod joined in too. The few dolphins that joined us were fun to watch surfing our wake. It was a good show and the narrative was very educational. I've had several other trips and enjoy learning more each time. I feel so blessed to live here and being able to see the ocean whales, sea lions, dolphins and more.

Mega pod of dolphins!

Even tho it was very overcast, the crew did their best to find us some whales. Captain has a radio network with fishermen, etc., and found us a mother and calf. Also found about 2000 dolphins and got to watch them play for a long time.

Mid week is great..the boat wasn't crowded and everyone could see.

This was a great boat trip and we were able to get close enough to several groups of whales to take some excellent pictures. The boat was not at all crowded and the captain provided interesting information on the annual migration activity of the whales.

Saw Grey Whales
Wed, Dec 24, 14   12:00 PM JaniceBlair Female 70+ Local Family With Children
We had a good time and saw 4 of the 6 whales that were sighted. Got a few good shots of them. We arrived early and went to sit in the sun returning 15 minutes before departure to find a long queue. When we got on the boat we could not find a place at the rails because of the crowd. Get in line early! Being short, it is a miracle I got any decent shots at all. Staff was courteous but hard to hear the announcements at the back of the boat which was the only place left with a seat at a rail, so we went up front with the crowd. Had a nice time out on the ocean with the sun and only felt the cold when the boat speeded up.

Our trip was wonderful - easy to book and we left on time. The boat had more than enough room on it for everyone to sit comfortably and see everything that was to be seen. My husband and I took our daughter and her fiancee' and we all had a wonderful time. The captain knew exactly where to go to find marine life. We saw a humpback whale and several hundred common dolphin. The trip would have been relaxing and worthwhile on its own, nut seeing such amazing creatures up close was incredible. Our daughter is a professional photographer and she captured some fabulous shots that will help us to always remember this adventure. WE would most certainly do this again.

A great policy

We were not fortunate enough to see a whale but Dana Wharf has a great policy of issuing a free return visit at your convenience, doesn't expire. Can't do better than that... The boat was clean and comfortable and the crew did everything they could to get us a whale. We would recommend this tour to anyone.
