My husband and I went whale watching in Jan of 2015 and I loved it. I took my grandkids and they both loved it too. They want to go back again, that's how much they enjoyed it.

We've now done the whale watching tour two times now and it is great. The staff is very professional and the boats and tour is top-notch! The half priced Tuesdays can not be beat. Do it!!

Went out for an all day trip aboard the Dana Pride and had a fantastic day. The skipper and deckhands were great. I highly recommend Dana Wharf for any ocean adventure.

The ship left in time, we saw dolphins but no whales (not the crew's fault). There was food and drinks on the boat. The crew was entertertaining and very professional. Overall awesome boat ride.
