Great Two Hours.

It was too easy. We got to plan everything and get reservations prior to going on this trip. The day of the trip we showed up early, got our tickets and was able to do some shopping at the local shops before boarding the vessel. We got to see a whale for a good 1/2 hour coming up about every 3-5 minutes and then went on to see a very large family/group of dark dolphins. There were so many dolphins just having a great time jumping and playing in the water. Made our day.

The fish weren't biting much. The deck hands could have been more help to the novce fisher man. Not sure I will return.

Had a great day whale watching with Dana Wharf as our guide. It was a fun day with the crew working hard to give us all a great experience. We saw two grey whale a ton of dolphin and a couple seals. Dana Wharf went out of there way to make sure we every opportunity to see all we could. Definetly will take this cruise on our next trip.

Boarded the DANA PRIDE for a two-hour whale-watching excursion. The Captain was informative and friendly as we pulled out of the marina and headed in the general direction of Catalina. He mentioned the locations of the previous three or four days' of whale sightings up and down the coast and that it would take some good luck for us to spot some on our trip; the whales had passed through a couple days before and were moving away. However we spotted two pods of dolphins, one of which was utterly amazing, playing, jumping, "escorting" our vessel. Ooh's and aah's from everyone.

The crew was very attentive to everyone on the boat and excursion. They were very accessible and helpful with repairing broken lines to helping all with catching fish. I highly recommend this charter service.

We had such a great time on our tour. It was a lot of fun and look forward to doing this again. We will be visiting the Southern California area again in the Spring with our children and grandchildren, we will be booking this tour again, I know the kids will love it. Even though we did not see any whales on our tour, we did see plenty of dolphins and sea lions. It was great to be out on the ocean on such a beautiful day. I can't say enough good about our experience.

Enjoyable boat trip

The kids enjoyed seeing the dolphins and searching for the young whale which we saw, sadly, right at the end. The crew were great though, and ran over time to get us a sighting. If we were staying in CA longer we'd have rebooked for the 50% off offer in the hope of seeing whales another day.

The trip was really fun. I went with my granddaughter who is 11. She had never been on a boat before. The crew was very professional and nice. We saw lots of dolphins and one humpback whale. Was definitely worth every penny and we are going to do it again in a couolevof weeks! Thank you
