My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a whale watching date. It was a wonderful tour. The captain and crew shared so much knowledge of the whale and dolphin behavior.It was a great experience. Well worth it.Hope to go again with the kids.

Lots of whales. Great crew. So many whales I could not believe it. My 7yr old grandson and his dad had a great time.

Weather was perfect, we saw 1 humpback and 4 grey whales, and the kids loved it. The crew of the Dana Pride were very courteous and helpful. Thank you Captain Tommy!

Love whale watching. Dana Wharf is the best place for seeing whales! I go at least 5 times a year. My family and I are going this weekend and I'm positive we will see whales. I love the catamaran the most!

This was a great outing. The boat was clean and comfortable, and the crew were very knowledgeable about all the animals we saw as well as the history of whaling in the area. When we went, we followed two migrating gray whales, many common dolphins, sea lions. Lots of fun! Check with the office for special rates on certain days... More

I enjoyed this two hours ride and actually got to see some beautiful whales. The guid was pleasant and well informed. I certainly will go back again since I feel just the ride alone is well worth it. I loved every minute.
