Fun for the family

I would highly recommend this trip. We had 3 kids (7,5,3), who thoroughly enjoyed watching the dolphins, whales, and sea lions (NOT seals). The youngest 2 got pretty tired and fell asleep for the last 30 minutes. The guides were great and entertaining. They have restrooms on the boat, as well as drinks, chips, and hot dogs / grilled cheese if you are hungry.

Fun fishing at Dana Wharf!

I always have a fun time fishing on any of the Dana Wharf fishing boats. All of the crews and captains are excellent. The cook on this specific boat (Clemente) made me one of the best breakfast Burritos I have hade anywhere.

Trip was good and everyone on the boat crew was helpful. Will recommend to all. Should give military discounts.

Great Trip / No Whales

This is the 4th time on the same whale watching ship and I have still yet to see even one whale. It seems a bit pricey for those odds. Also, we were freezing cold even with gloves and jackets and hats on. The crew was great and you can't beat the scenery, but we want to see whales!

The Dana Pride was a nice boat with informative narrative. Some of the family ate from snack bar and said it was very good. We did not see much sea life on our day but the cruise was fun anyway.

Fun time on Dana Wharf whale watch
Mon, Dec 21, 09   12:00 PM RuthAnnS Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We were hoping to see grey whales but were just a little too early yet. Did see a blue, several sharks, several playful sea lions, and lots of dolphins that played around the boat and rode the bow. The captain's information as we went along was very interesting. We all had a great time and would do it again.

Captian was Fantastic

We came upon some breaching whales (which does not happen off california coast) and the captian stopped the boat for a long while to watch them play. We were on our way back to dock and should not have stopped. Instead he stopped and used up excess fuel to get back to dock quicker.

Great activity except for an equipment malfunction

About an hour into the boat ride my wife was sitting on a raised portion of the boat was sliding off to touch the deck...she is 5' so her legs were a couple of inches from touching the deck. As she slid off a piece of the ship that was tied to this "box area" came loose and she went with it onto the deck, bruised and pretty shaken up. A deck hand came over and secured the portion that came loose and asked her if she was OK, she said I think so. I was with her at this point. We went down in the galley to purchase a drink and told the bartender what had happened and he was pretty excited to go fix it but as soon as we told him it had been secured he lost interest,,,didn't even ask if she was ok. No customer service or concerns to the right persons I guess.

thanks for the memories

I booked the trip knowing that fishing would be questionable. Your web site held true and that was OK. My son's had never been on the ocean fishing and it was worth the looks on there face's. We will be back....

We tracked a mum and a calf grey whale up the coast which was great to see, we also found a large pod of dolphin which was fantastic.

The captain and crew were excellent guides.

Amazing time for both of us!

The Captain did a great job parking the boat right on the fish. Everyone on board was catching Calico Basson 8 out of 10 casts. Those that were struggling with technique had a crew member come and show them the tricks to have an eventful time. Captain and the crew were very friendly and out going, made the trip so much more enjoyable. I highly recommend it to anyone. Our next trip will be with our children, we landed so many fish, with quite a few keepers, that it would be near impossible for them to have a bad time! Loved it 100%......by the way, no need for a shore pole. Regular length pole works great, right Cory?!?
