Nice boat -- No whales
Mon, Feb 24, 14   12:00 PM Dwarfjr1 Female Unspecified Local Family Without Children
Though this is supposed to be the peak season for migrating grey whales neither our cruise, nor the one that preceded us, saw a single whale. I've been on ten whale-watching excursions in different areas, and this is the first time I've come home without seeing whales. While the vendor provides rain-check tickets, good for another cruise at some future date, this isn't really satisfactory. When people are doing this as tourists from some far-away place, the odds that they will be able to use the rain-checks are very slim. We were hosting family from back East, and they were very disappointed.

Great time on the ocean

went with 8 family members and everyone enjoyed being out on the ocean. at first all we saw was lots of dolphin but toward the end of our tour the Captain spotted some gray whales and followed them north along the coastline. we were late getting back but nobody cared because we were enjoying the whales and dolphins. the Captain was very informative. Loved it!

This "tour" exceeded all expectations. The crew was helpful, polite and patient. Have been on other whale watching vessels but they pale in comparison. Was not disappointed in the sightings and the pilot of the vessel knew exactly where to go for the ultimate experience. Also provided was overall education about whales, habitats, etc. That was quite enlightening and appreciated. Whales and dolphins were spectacular. Will definitely go again.

2 Gray Whales Spotted

We followed 2 gray whales for a long time and then we came up on a mega pod of dolphins which was equally exciting and even more entertaining. Our guide was very informative and enthusiastic. It was well worth the money for what we saw.

Unbelievable!!!!!

The captain of our cruise was OUTSTANDING!!!!!! Extremely knowledgeable about the marine life and enthusiastic about sharing that knowledge. Our whole family learned a ton because of him. We also were in the midst of a super pod of dolphins which is a sight I will never ever forget.

Great Cruise
Fri, Feb 21, 14   12:00 PM doritb Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
We spotted two large gray whales right away and we followed them for almost half an hour. Then we were suddenly in the midst of hundreds of dolphins. They were leaping, swimming very close to our boat and surfing our wake. We also saw a group of sea lions squabbling over space on a buoy. Our captain was also a naturalist and provided a lot of interesting information. The other crew were friendly and helpful and the boat was clean and comfortable. Finally, with the limited number of passengers, I always had an unobstructed view right at the rail and I believe that everyone else did as well. This cruise will remain one of the highlights of my California visit.

AWESOME ADVENTURE

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!
