I went on the fishing boat thinking I was going to catch a lot of fish and big ones but I ended up wasting my time and money. I didn't catch anything. I don't recommend fishing with Dana Wharf.

This was a 10th birthday present for my grandson. The crew was courteous and helpful, and made the trip very enjoyable. Will recommend Dana Wharf Sportfishing to all my friends.

Fishing was poor. But I don't think the captain could do anything about it. The boat and gear were clean and organized, the crew was pleasant and helpful. The trip price was very good (1/2 price Tuesdays) and the extras reasonably priced.

No fish

It was cool and I was glad I went, but the cold water was not conducive to catching fish. I think only 5 fish total were caught on the entire boat and only one in our group of 4 and it was a tree fish, haha. I don't even know what that means.

We came at a bad time of the year for fishing seasons, but still had fun. We caught a few fish, and were treated good. The staff was helpful and always kept busy. I would recommend this service.

Great Time

Everybody was very friendly. The trip was casual and fun. The staff felt like they were apart of the group rather than staff working for a paycheck. I am planning to bring my brother and his kids next time during the summer.

The trip we took was great. From the start the staff was very friendly. The boat was very clean. We did not catch much fish, but the crew took us to different areas to help us find the best catch. The view and sunset were just beautiful. We had a lot of fun and help from the crew. Most of all we enjoyed the grilled burgers they were the best, way better than our sandwich. Next time we go I will not bother taking a lunch, maybe some snacks. I will definitely return and take another trip with Dana Wharf Fishing

Good Crew

The captain and crew were very nice and easy to get along with. We didn't go very far out maybe 2-3 miles. Stoped a few times to fish, but didn't do to well. We did get a few keepers. There were 14 in our group. Nice day at sea, but the sun didn't come out much. Better luck next time. We would go out again anytime with this crew.
