I fished the October of 2011 and had a good time. The staff was courteous and efficient. Food was even good. I took the 5 hour pm trip and would due it again.

Had an magnificient early morning trip. Went out with Dana Wharf sportsfishing & Whale watching last summer also, so I knew that it would be good . Catching squid was real fun and exiting as I've never done that before, they tasted really good also. The crew members are very nice & helpfull. It's also a great way to see wildlife at sea & you are really in it, even to see land from the water is amazing. As fishing is one of my great hobbies I wanted to do it even if I this year was on my own & I had no problems at all taking part of this trip as a lonely female & it felt as we all were a group of freinds out fishing. I highly recomend this activity.

Been using Dana Wharf for 20 years, always consistently good in finding the fish. The crews are extremely helpful. Reccommend this to any traveler or local person(s) intersted in a great deep sea fishing trip.

I like the fact that there are experienced fishermen on board to help people out. Ducks kept getting my bait and the deck hands came to untangle them. They also helped out if someone's line got caught or tangled with someone else's line.They even fillet your fish for you for $1!

The overall trip was good. The Hands where helpful. Trip was smooth and eventful. Come time to leave I ask the deck hand where are the numbers on the sacks. He said I took them off. I asked him how am I suppose to find these 3 bags. Number 10,20 and,39. He replied oh I know where they are. So I said can you get them for me, and he said sure. Then he says I can't find them how many fish are you missing? To which I replied 3. He said someone must have taken them. No kidding I replied. I have been on trips in Oceanside, San Diego and other places too. And they all make sure this doesn't happen. So good trip poor deck hand. I will probably stick to what I am use to in the future. It's ok for catch and release but that wasn't want I was looking for in this trip. Also the other two guys that I was picking up the fish for were not to happy either. I still tipped him 5 dollars.

I took my 8 and 5 year old boys on thier first deep sea fishing trip. They caught lots of fish and they loved it. The crew was very helpful and it was a family friendly atmosphere.
