We (my husband of 25 years) and I had an "awesome" time Whale Watching. Our Captain and Crew were friendly, helpful and informative. We saw everything!!!! Whales, dolphins (two different kinds) unusual fish and sea lions. We can't wait to go again and hopefully take some of our grandchildren.

We went out whale watching on the Dana Pride, and it was an amazing experience. The crew was attentive, warm and friendly and made sure we had a wonderful trip. We saw whales (the mother an calf that had been hanging around and a pod of dolphins). We will definitely go again with this group.

With recent reports of whales in the area, it seemed like a perfect opportunity to see them. While it was disappointing not to see any this trip, the common dolphin population was our in good numbers and provided an excellent view of their lives near shore. Cost was commensurate with content.

Our group of 3 adullts and 3 children had a terrfic time on each of the trips . The two morning trips were by far the most fun because we caught more fish...afternoon trip was very windy. The crews on each trip were helpful and attentive and made for an overall fun experience.

Spotless boat and a captain with a great sense of humor. He ensured that we saw dolphins even though there were no whales in our area during our time slot. I would happily do it again on my next trip to CA.

Captain made excellent effort to spot whales

My husband and I took a two-day trip from Encinitas, CA stopping the first day in Dana Point to search for whales and dolphins. We heard they had excellent luck here. The boat was nice and the Captain (whom was sat behind) and his assistant were continually using binoculars to try to spot whales and dolphins. Unfortunately, there were no whales that day but he found a great pod of dolphins who had a great time jumping high into the air several feet and surfing the wake he was providing.

the boat was nice and the staff cheerful. However, the rear speakers were not working and we could not understand a word that was being said. We saw beautiful dolphins and two seals but no whales.

The boat left right on time, was very clean and the crew very friendly and informative. Since we didn't see any whales, we got a whale watch ticket for another trip for free anytime. Also, the food from the grille is fantastic - all freshly made!! There is plenty of seating and/or places to stand along the railing, so it didn't feel too crowded.

First time for my husband & son; only second time on ocean fishing trip for me. First time at age 12 was sea sick whole trip. So this trip was wonderful. Husband & I prepared with dramamine. Son got seasick but crew was very helpful. Fishing was a blast...Captain & Crew were great! Food from the galley was reasonable in price & taste good!Only down side was not many "keepers". Will definitely go back!
