The ocean was calm, sunset beautiful and we saw 2 huge blue whales. Dana Wharf Cruise was determined that we would see whales and didn't mind if the boat got back a little late, so we could experience the whales.

The weather was wonderful! The boat ride was smooth. But unfortunately we did not see any whales :( The crew did go out of the way to find a pod of dolphins but I wish we could have seen whales.

The whales and dolphins were out in force and the staff had a lot of really interesting information to share. The boat was very clean and it was just a fantastic evening!

This was a great value. We really enjoyed the dophin "show." They were around our boat for about 1 hour. The boat was clean and the crew was nice and informative.

This was a great way to spend a Friday evening. The service to check in was slow and the captain was a bit snarky, but once we got going on the waters, it was fun. We saw a pod of common dolphins, but sadly, there was nigh a whale to see.

Weather was perfect, and we saw tons and tons of blue whales, and one fin whale...The only problem was lunch at Jolly Roger, lousy food, I should have gone to Turk's.

What a fun cruise. However, cruise departed at 5:30 not as schedule at 5:00 p.m.
Had fun waiting thought.
Would do it again.
