Someone on our boat caught an endangered species fish and the fish was filleted at the end of the ride.

Out of the office-gone fishing

Using Zerve to book our fishing trip was easy and convenient. Location and parking was easily accessible. Received great service at check-in. The "Boat Crew" provided outstanding service. Cold beer and awesome cheese burgers, sun shining and catching fish, what more can a guy ask for?!

I CAUGHT FISH, HAD SOME GOOD CONVERSATIONS WITH FELLOW FISHERMEN & WOMEN, SAW A BEAUTIFUL SUNSET AND A MOON LIT NIGHT, BUT WHEN THE WIND PICKED UP IT GOT A LITTLE ROUGH AND SOME FOLKS LOOKED LIKE THEY JUST GOT OFF OF THE TILT-A- WHIRL AFTER EATING TO MUCH COTTON CANDY....

good day of fishing

Met my youngest son, three of this friends at Dana Point went on a 1/2 day boat. Everyone on the boat caught sand, calico bass, short barracuda and one nice halibut. The captain and boat hands were extremely courteous and helpful in assisting the fishermen in retying hooks, removing fish, bagging them, untangling line snags and cleaning the fish. Great 1/2 day boat for all.

Yes, the 'bite was on' . We had a 'great time'. Easy purchase and check-in was quick. Our fishing trip was a successful thanks to the service and caring of the personel at Zerve and Dana Wharf!

Leave Late back on Time

I found it odd that when reading the daily catchs on line that it shows a great deal of fish being caught, but then on the boat few fish were caught and the captain made a statement that it has really been slow lately! Another statement from the captain made while sitting at the dock was "we are running late this morning" everyone on the boat paid for 5 hours of fishing and we were all cut short. We left late and arrived back on time. To make things worse not very many fish were caught and condition were good.

A rather "generic" fishing trip.
Sun, Jul 12, 09   12:45 PM jimjazz Male 50-59 Combination Family With Children
The trip was scheduled out at 1245pm. We actually waited for a family of four AFTER departure! What' up with that? Crowded boat, went to some places where you just catch everyday fish. It was like fishing with a hook and line off the dock in Minnesota; you're guaranteed to catch a bunch but you wouldn't want any of them. I understand we're not "sportfishing" but we expected more. The Sunday special was affordable but I'm glad I didn't pay retail price!

Wonderful, first time experience

I took my grandson on the 1/2 day fishing trip, which was the first time either of us had been open water fishing. While neither of us caught any "keepers" during our outing, we had a great time, and we highly recommend the trip.

We had a wonderful time!

Our group was in the area (San Clemente State Beach) for a family reunion - There were 14 of our family on the trip - The weather wasn't the greatest (overcast), and the fishing didn't turn out so good (three of our part of the larger group caught five fish between us and they were great when I cooked them the next night!) - And we still had a great time - The view of the California coast was spectacular! - The crew were helpful and professional - I would certainly recommend this activity to anyone interested in deep sea fishing
