Whale Watching and Dolphins

This crew was great. They knew exactly where the whales were. They kept a respectful distance and gave us a lot of information about the whales and dolphins.

Will return when the blue whales are around.

It was fantastic!! We saw a blue whale, a shark, and sea lions. The captain was informative and very patient. We got to follow the whale for some time while we watched it swim on it's long journey. It was so peaceful and the boat was big enough so you didn't get sea sick easily. I loved it!!

Saw lots of playful dolphins up-close, also saw an Elephant Seal and some Fin Whales. The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable, and the boat was roomy and comfortable. And the 1/2-price tickets were certainly a good deal! :-)

This was by far the best whale watching trip I have ever been on. The captain, Todd, was excellent with tons of information. My son had a blast, and we saw 5 whales. I highly recommend this trip!

loved it!!! we got to see many whales and dolphins. The ship was immaculate and the crew was awesome....they even kept us out longer because the captain was determined for us to see another group of a different type of whale they saw in the distance!! We are looking forward to doing it again real soon :)

Saw whales, as promised, as well as dolphins.

The skipper and crew were awesome. There was a marine expert on board who narrated and explained behaviors. They let all the kids on board go into the wheel house and "drive" the boat. Although I had no children with me I thought this was a very wonderful thing. We saw whales, they explained how to spot them and track them. We saw so many dolphins it was like being in a Jacque Cousteau show. The dolphins were worth the price of the ticket!

We can't wait to go again!

This was our families first Whale Watching Trip and we're ready to go again. We saw over 9 whales which I'm told is rare to see that many at one outing, lots of seals ( which swam up to the boat and were so darn cute) and dolphins. The Guide and Crew were funny and friendly and narrated the trip all the way through with interesting facts about everything we saw. Wish we could have stayed out another 2 hours!

We had visited Southern California before and never spotted any whales. We decided to take the Dana Wharf Whale Watching tour. The Captain and crew were very informed about whales and dolphins and not only gave tips on spotting whales and dolphins but also shared factual information in an interesting way. On the trip we saw several Grey Whales, Sea Lions, and a large group of Common Dolphins. The Captain cruised slowly and turned the boat frequently allowing all passengers to get a good view and take photographs. We took the 2 p.m. cruise after the morning fog lifted. That worked well for visibility. After the cruise, I was able to spot more whales from the shore using the tips I had learned on the cruise. We would definitely go again.

No Whales but Who Cares

It was great being out on the ocean, and we "parked" in a pod of dolphins and had a great time watching them frolic. I swear they planned their jumps to void the cameras! And they seemed genuinely happy to see us and genuinely reluctant for us to leave when we did.

Oh, and we saw a sea lion. (I called it a seal and one of the crew corrected me with a good natured chuckle.)

The crew was friendly and professional and quite knowledgeable about where we were going and what we were seeing.

The trip was so enjoyable, I didn't even regret the prescription glasses I managed to drop overboard on the way out of the harbor. Really!

The boat, The Dana Pride, was clean and safe and our skipper was educated and very knowledgeable about the mammals we hoped to see, from whales to different dolphins etc. He did not dumb-down his narration and I liked that. As it happened the fog rolled in and we didn't see any whales so we got a whale-rain-check - much appreciated. Boat crew were friendly and very agreeable. We shall be back soon. Thanks.
