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.

Great intro. to deep sea fishing!

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!

Good trip

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.

It could not have been better with the perfect weather conditions and catching a lot of fish and a crew that was extremely helpfull. We are more than satified with DanaWharf's customer service. I would highly recommend this to eveyone. We'll be back. Thank you to the crew of the FUN SUM. great job, well done.

Crew was polite, attentive and knowledgeable. Even our twelve year old granddaughter felt welcome and included. Would go again and would recommend to others.

Better value than the movies

So for 5 hours you can be out on the water, eating a burger and having a good time. maybe even catch some fish for dinner. You can even go to the movies for that kind of price.

Fish not biting but a nice morning on the water
Wed, Aug 3, 11   6:30 AM lennoxes Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
The ocean dropped 10-degrees in a week, so the fish weren't biting, but we had a nice day. One crew member, who seemed to be new, was not at all customer oriented. The captain took him aside at the start of the trip, but to no effect... Otherwise a nice time. My 12-year old son can't wait to go again!
