AWESOME ADVENTURE
Tue, Feb 18, 14   12:00 PM ellenfontana Female 60-69 Local Family Without Children
This whale watching journey was everything we hoped for! Our Captain was also a Naturalist and really knowledgable about the migrating whale population and surrounding sea mammals. He went way out of his way to track two whales he'd seen on the trip before ours and was able to locate them lolling in the waters about 9 miles down the coast. I thought I knew a lot about whales until I heard his narrative about them and it was a fantastic experience. Highly recommend the Dana Pride Whale watching event. Advice: Dress warmly in layers and, if you're tall, try to let the little people stand in front of you!

Not What I Hoped For
Mon, Feb 17, 14   2:30 PM krz4kc Female 60-69 Local Family Without Children
I know it's not possible to guarantee whale sightings, and the captain did follow one whale because that's all that was in the area, but it was very hard to see the whale with all the other people standing by the edge of the boat. Other small boats in the area were spooking that whale so he barely showed, and certainly didn't show his tail. Also, the company switched me to a different time and different boat a few hours before the scheduled trip, after I paid to go out on the better trip, on the Catamaran. That was disappointing. Not sure if I would go with this company for future whale watching trips.

Great way to see whales

The size of the boat, the knowledge of the crew and the amount of people on board made for a great trip. We wish we were able to be closer but the whales were a little shy. We ended up receiving 50% vouchers for another trip. What a great experience.

Fun, Funny & Amazing

My husband took me on this trip for my birthday and it was every thing we'd hoped for and more. We saw hundreds of dolphins and the whales that decided to visit were fun to watch. Whomever was our "captain" on the boat that day was entertaining and funny. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on this adventure. The food/drinks that were available were top notch. Never skimped on the alcohol in the bloody marys either which was a plus since it was my birthday. I would recommend this in a heartbeat!

Foggy Day
Tue, Feb 11, 14   10:00 AM janesking Female 70+ Local Family Without Children
Unfortunately, it was so foggy that we couldn't see much of anything. Captain Jack was unable to look for animal activity & of course the other boats were in the same situation. He was very sorry & we got rain checks for a better day.

A once in a lifetime day for seeing whales
Sun, Feb 9, 14   3:00 PM BLStone Unspecified Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Unfortunately, this kind of whale watching tour doesn't happen every day.

The boat, crew, etc. were all great however, and that will happen (or should) every time.

Fun and informative
Tue, Feb 4, 14   2:00 PM stevehm Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My wife and I were visiting her sister in Orange Co. and she suggested this activity as something new to do while there. While we had seen whales in Hawaii , it was from a distance(hiway overlook), so it was pretty cool being close and on the water with them this time.There were 4 whales total sighted and followed. It's also always fun to have dolphins playing along side the boat. I would recommend for anyone who can handle a few large swells on occasion while on the water.

Gray whales & a megapod of dolphins
Sat, Feb 1, 14   2:30 PM judithLV Female 50-59 Combination Family Without Children
I have never seen so many dolphins together at one time; hundreds leaping and cavorting.

The whales (3) showed their tails. Sun was shining, it was a great 2 hours.

This was a great way to entertain my family who came in from out of town! Everyone enjoyed the cruise and had a wonderful time. The crew was friendly and very knowledgeable with the local marine life. We will definitely return in the near future!

Great way to spend a few hours

We saw a California Gray Whale from up close. Wow!! The highlight was the hundreds of common dolphins swimming and jumping around the boat. This trip is a must do while in Southern California!
