I give the Catamaran Adventure a four Star review, it was excellent from check-in to the end of the trip.

We will do this one again!

We did this as a playdate with my four year old girls and their friends/moms and we had a really nice time. We got very lucky and saw multiple schools of dolphins and at least eight blue whales. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the boat was comfortable.

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

My husband, daughter, son-in-law, two-year-old grandson and I took the 5PM tour to see the blue whales and we were not disappointed. I have a fear of water (can't swim) and was afraid to take a smaller boat. The Dana Pride was perfect for me. We got seats on the top deck and saw our first whale within 10 minutes of leaving the dock. The boat was big enough so that I did not feel like I might fall in the water but not so big as to feel crowded.

Our guide/pilot was very knowledgable about the whales and continued to find more for us to see as the time went on. We were a bit late getting back because we followed a pair of whales a little way down the coast so we could get a good view. This also allowed us to experience the sunset.

We would do this trip again in a heartbeat.

Our captain/driver of our boat was great! He wanted to make sure everyone was having a great time. It easily accommodated our party of 6 people and we were all able to sit together! We saw a good amount of Blus whales, and will be coming back soon!

Our family of four saw about 8 blue whales. One of them gave us a show of her tail. A pod of dolphins were leaping all around the boat on our way back to the wharf. Absolutely stunning and incredible sights.

we saw at least 15 whales from a distance and 5 up close, within 10 feet of the boat. Crew was friendly and informative giving information about whales and their food source krill. Boat was clean and on time leaving and returning to port. I will go again every chance I get, especially on 1/2 price Tuesdays.

Good trip

I have been wanting to go whale watching for many years. My son treated us to a whale watching tour out of Newport in July. We enjoyed the boat ride, though we didn't see any whales. When I saw that Dana Wharf offered 1/2 price tours I thought we could try it again and that a different tour company might be luckier. I'm so glad we did. Weather was good and of course the best highlight was we saw whales. We sat on top so we could sit rather than stand since we are older. We were a little disappointed as the pilot always seemed to direct the boat in a position where the view of the whales was good for him, but not for some of us who were on a part of the boat that couldn't see as well. Other people near us had the same complaint. Our view was always blocked by other people gathering on the side of the boat the pilot seemed to favor to face the whales, so we just caught glimpses. But since this trip was already an improvement over the trip out of Newport, it made us happy. I would like to try the catamaran, but not sure how to get reservations on it. When I made this reservations, it wasn't revealed we would not be on the catamaran until after the purchase was completed. I'm hoping to use the 1/2 price coupon that was given to us next year for a trip with our grandkids. The pilot also kept talking about the whales like they were separate whales, but we could tell we were just seeing the same ones multiple times.

We saw ''em, we chased 'em - the pictures I took just didn't convey the excitement we felt in seeing those big, bad boys. You had to be there!

We didn't catch anything, but for a non-fisher like me, the staff was super helpful and fishing on the oceanfront was a new adventure. I definitely recommend it!
