Make sure you have the kids take bromine 2 hours in advance so no one is sea sick.

Hoping to eat ocean fish

This was a great time for our family! We enjoyed the boat ride, the staff was very kind and helpful with all of our needs. We were able to catch fish and it was fun for our kids to experience ocean fishing. They were a little disappointed that the fish we caught were not big enough to meet the legal catch and keep size. Overall it was a really great time to experience ocean fishing! Thanks Dana Wharf Sportfishing!

Family Fishing Trip

What a great day we had fishing with my wife and two daughters (first time for the three of them to go salt water fishing). Great customer service checking in as well as on the boat. The crew was readily available to assist, providing insight and instruction. Will definitely plan to use them again next time we are in So Cal. Thanks!

Great day on the water. I'm an avid freshwater fisherman in Colorado, so I was looking for something different. Plenty of action and the captain was genuinely interested in getting us on the fish. Rental equipment got the job done for a reasonable price. The crew was awesome and extremely helpful. Bathroom was clean and the galley had everything you need for a day of fishing. Prices were very reasonable.

Timing
Sat, Jun 7  6:30 AM Slujan319 Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
We were on the boat and ready to go at the departure time. We didn't leave for the bait barge until 6:55 and didn't leave the harbor until 7:15. So didn't actually start fishing until 7:35. We have been on these 1/2 day boats for years and usually 5-6 time per year. Not the only time this has happened, but it is convenient, local and my son really enjoys it. Also gets annoying when the deck has fish during the trip in the popular area (stern) and I've had my spot taken by a deck hand. Not a huge deal, but annoying. Overall the deck hands are great. Done some fishing in San Diego which is fun as well, but still a longer drive. Food for thought.

The staff was excellent! Our first two stops didn't go so well. The crew didn't give up though. Our 3rd stop had everyone on the boat catching fish. I had kids with me ranging from 12 - 16 and they all had a great time! In addition, the food was excellent!

Took my 5yr old grandson out on the Sum Fun for some FUN! That is exactly what we got!! so much fun! Great boat to introduce the kids to sportfishing! The kid was a natural and brought up the first fish on the boat, and could not stop smiling the rest of the day as we caught fish for the next few hours. Great personable captain and the crew was awsome!

Could have been a great time, but we had to come back because of the winds. We got passes to come back. Looking forward to it. Great staff.
