Glimpses of a few fin whales
Fri, Nov 4, 11   11:00 AM Toyookaed Male Unspecified Local Unspecified
This was the 11:00 am whale watch on the Dana Pride, instead of the catamaran. We had brief glimpses of several fin whales. The watch was hampered by rain and windy weather. Overall, it was not a good whale watch.

A good watch with unsual feeding behavior
Sat, Oct 22, 11   12:00 PM Toyookaed Male 70+ Local Other
This the first time I have observed surface feeding behavior with the blue whale. The whale displayed its ventral pleats usually with one pectoral fin up and half of its fluke out of water . The blue whale we observed did this repeatedly as the krill must have been near the surface which attracted the attention of the birds and the dolphins.

This was an exceptional whale watch.

Danapoint whale watch 10/2011
Mon, Oct 10, 11   12:00 PM Toyookaed Male 70+ Local Unspecified
I was expecting great weather but the fog rolled in early in the watch. We saw and got good looks of 3 blue whales and one fin whale. The visibility was somewhat diminished by the fog. The captain did an excellent job of getting great looks.

Outstanding blue whale watch
Mon, Sep 19, 11   12:00 PM Toyookaed Male 70+ Local Unspecified
This trip encountered more blue whales, at least 12 different whales, close to shore than I have ever witnessed The captain did a particulary good job of getting close good looks of several selected whales. One whale showed us a fluke up dive every time it went on a deep dive. I saw more blues in Santa Barbara Channel about 4 years ago but that was much further out from shore and a much longer whale watch.

Good looks of blue whales in season

We got an outstanding view and photos as an adult blue whale swam toward us within 100 ft and did a a fluke up dive. This is the closest blue whale fluke I have observed. The captain did a particularly good job of locating whales for us. I can post pictures on your web site of you desire

AWESOME & INSPIRING!

The morning had a chill in the air but I was so excited about my whale watching cruise!

My friend and I arrived and waited patiently to board. The crew was wonderful. We headed out...the tour was not very crowded (guess there are lots of sleepy heads in OC).

We spent 2 incredible hours on the ocean. I find peace and tranquility there...Captain Jack was very informative and I learned quite a bit about those magnificent creatures!

We found a whale that we were able to follow for 45 minutes and it was awe-inspiring.

I wish I could go every week...I truly believe the whales and dolphins are magical creatures!

I would recommend this cruise to all!

THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL BEGINNING TO MY WEEKEND!

Wonderful Time!
Tue, Feb 26, 08   12:00 PM touristgirl Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
After two weeks of stormy, cold weather, and very rough seas the skies were clear, temperatures were in the low 70s and the Pacific was like glass! After much anticipation, we departed the harbor in search of sea life and we were not disappointed! A lone seal was in the harbor, pelicans were on the jetty and not long after leaving port, we spotted the first of several gray whales. We followed the whales up the coastline until it was time to turn back. Several Pacific Bottlenosed Dolphis were sited as was lone sea lion sunning himself on a bouy. We had a FABULOUS time and will go out again if we're ever in California!

Good times.

The boat I was on did not see any dolphins or whales, only sea lions. However, we received tickets to go again for free. I'm happy that I didn't see anything the first time, because now I get to go again. Even without the animals, the ride was the perfect time and the weather was beautiful. The views of the coast and water were gorgeous.

Awesome!!

We had a wonderful trip whale watching--I had tickets from a previous trip where we didn't see any dolphins and/or whales. However, this second time around we saw a pod of dolphins and two whales. The people who work with this company are very polite and accomodating--once we found the whales they followed them for approx. 20 mins so that we could see them up close. It was a great experience and I can't wait to bring my grandchildren back !! Thank you.

Only fair experience

Crew not organized to keep fishing entertaining and informative. No rotation enforced thus people just stayed in one location and made parts of boat over crowded.
