The crew made the trip an enjoyable fishing experience. They were quickly on the spot to help you bring the fish aboard and take it off your hook.

This trip was with my son and his son. All were first timers on a commercial sport fishing boat. We rented poles. It seems the most success by others was with spoons or lures. The live anchovies were mainly eaten by the seals and pelicans. A suggestion to those renting equipment that maybe different types of bait (lures,etc.) might increase the catching would be appreciated. After all, persons renting equipment must be novices otherwise they would already have what is needed. The boat was fine, very clean and the galley and prepared breakfast sandwiches were very good and reasonably priced, which is appreciated. We enjoyed the experience and will do it again. But first I will need to get my own lures etc. The crew was fine and provided help when asked.

The fishing was not as good as we expected , but that is fishing!!!! We had a good time and my grandson was very excited. He lives in your area and I'm sure that he will be back to fish with you again and soon. The crew did a great job of tending to the needs of the fishermen. I would have no problem with going on your trip again.

Thought it was costly since there were very few fish caught. Should have gone to a few more spots.

I have fished up and down the California coast for over 50 years. There are a lot of good ports, and a lot of good boats. But none can beat the Dana Wharf for clean boats, good scenery, and friendly, helpful crews. I fish on the Dana Wharf boats a lot- nearly every week. I hope to meet you when you come out fishing.

I promised a fishing trip to my brother and his two young sons as a Christmas gift. I made a special trip from my home in Loon Lake Washington to fulfill my promise. When one of the two nephews became ill the eve of the trip it could have ruined everything but that did not happen. Happily the landing personnel adjusted the one cancelled trip and issued the proper fish licenses and gear in a flash. We were on the boat in minutes and outside the harbor fishing in a few more minutes. My eight year old nephew said after the trip that it was much better than he expected and was ready to go again the next week. He was surprised that there were as many kids on board as adults and to top it off he caught six fish. The three of us caught eight fish but left them to grown a little more. Nice clean, wide beam SUM FUN boat and friendly, helpful crew. Definitely a DO AGAIN outing.

Fishing was interrupted countless times by the pelicans and cormorants that went after our bait. Not really anyone's fault, but completely wrecked what could have been an enjoyable fishing day. If the captain or anyone can figure out how to get rid of the birds, then this fishing trip would be pleasant, and actually fun!
