DanaWharf 1/2 Day Fishing Trip
Wed, Jun 16, 10   10:00 AM MichaelBurke Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
There were 4 of us. Myself (54), my dad (80) and my 2 sons (19) (21). The customer service at Zerve were easy to deal with and made the reservation process seamless. We had a great day of fishing off Dana Point Harbor. The crew on the boat were very helpful in handling the fish caught and answering all questions we had. I would highly recommend Zerve and DanaWarf Harbor for a fun day on the ocean.

Wonderful boat ride!

We did the two hour whale watching trip with Dana Wharf Sprotfishing and Whale Watching. Even though we did not see any whales that day we did get to see a lot of playful dolphin jumping out of the water and playing next to our boat. The boat ride itself was very enjoyable as well. As we searched for whales we rode along the beautiful California coastline. We had a group of 5 including an out of state visitor who had never been on a boat before! This was the highlight of his vacation. I will bring my family on this trip again and I would recommend it to friends.

Took my family sport fishing and had a great time. We got a bit board staying in the same spot for the whole time. Would have liked to move to a different fishing spot to catch more fish. The crew was very helpful with all aspects of the fishing trip.

Wonderful and caring crew

We went out with Larry and Mike and enjoyed this trip tremendously. Since we did not see a whale on the first trip we were given an opportunity to go on the following trip at no charge. Larry and Mike work hard trying to find whales and interact with guests. They make you feel like you are a long time friend. On both trips other passengers got sick and they were constantly checking on them and were concerned about them. Great job and we did see a whale on our second trip.

Great whale watching trip! Captain was very knowledgeable and we followed and watched the whale for more than an hour. Seas were calm, weather beautiful, and the boat very comfortable.

We had a good day. We were able to view a dolphin pod feeding and 2 blue whales up close. The 2 boat crew members were fantastic resources for ocean facts. Would do this again.

We saw 3 Blue Whales, lots of dolfins, seal lions and seals. The crew was wonderful and informative. The boat was really nice and clean. I'm a native Californian and have been coming to Dana Point since I was 2 months old and never knew that whale watching was available out of Dana Point. Moved to Colorado 3 years ago and came to visit California with the kids and signed us up for whale watching! It's wonderful - do it!

Wasn't sure what to expect. We have spent some time in SoCal, but hadn't done a whale watching trip. Was planning some time at Crystal Cove, which is very close to Dana Point. Happened across the DanaWharf 1/2 price Tuesday. What a GREAT find. Boat was large, clean and comfortable. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. While it is understood that there is no guarantees as to what you may find, we got great views of Blue Whales, Dolphins and Sea Lions. This was really a great find! Thanks

We had a great time. We got to see 3 blue whales which were incredible. Also saw a lot of dolphins. We ate lunch on the boat and were impressed with the quality and price. We went on half-price Tuesday and would highly recommend it if you can get away on a Tuesday afternoon. The staff was also very helpful. This is a ton of fun and I highly recommend this for a fun activity for all ages.
