Loved the dolphins!
Tue, Aug 16, 11   5:00 PM trudyhanson Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
On our whale watching tour (Aug. 16) we saw two blue whales and a pod of dolphins. My grandchildren loved the dolphins! They were less impressed by the whales--but I think that was because they didn't quite comprehend the size of what they were seeing. The tour guide's commentary was informative. We had a great time.

We got to see a blue whale, the Captain was very good and was able to track it's progress so we got several sightings. Plus a good view of 'The Whale Tail' We also had Dolphins swimming alongside the boat. Great experience and all for half-price so very good value for money.

Pelicans, Pelicans everywhere!!
Sun, Aug 14, 11   12:45 PM signboydan Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
Beautiful day, nice conditions...with exception of the Pelicans that would not leave us alone! The crew spent much of their time pulling hooks from the annoying pests. The jackpot fish was a small sand bass. The crew did a great job of trying to get us into a better spot, but the birds were relentless. Too bad the Pelicans didn't count towards the jackpot! I like this trip because I can bring my 10-year old son. People should know that the 12:45 boat is full of kids. If they don't like it, then they can book an earlier or later trip. I'll be back for a twilight trip on Labor Day!

Beautiful weather, calm sea, full moon, no wind.

It could not have been better with the perfect weather conditions and catching a lot of fish and a crew that was extremely helpfull. We are more than satified with DanaWharf's customer service. I would highly recommend this to eveyone. We'll be back. Thank you to the crew of the FUN SUM. great job, well done.

This cruise was a lot of fun. We saw dolphins and whales, and we were more than close enough for great photos and videos. Crew was knowledgeable and friendly.

Fabulous whales
Fri, Aug 12, 11   12:00 PM pkbauer Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
Excellent Whale watching trip. Encountered a very large blue whale and was able to see him surface 4 times. Was amazing. Captain very knowledgeable and was able to get a close view without disturbing this amazing creature. Also saw a couple of smaller whales and two large pods of dolphin who were feeding. Could not have been a better trip. Impressive

Dana Wharf Sports Fishing

I'd strongly advise you to ask if the birds are as aggressive (and numerous) as it was when we went! We spent more than half the time on the boat cutting and reconnecting weights and hooks to our lines because the pelicans were either eating the bait while casting out or getting tangled on the line while it was in the water. It was actually a bit miserable. Not to mention we caught very few fish. This was my fathers day present for my dad, and I felt terrible that it didn't have any great memories other than just being able to spend some time together tying knots!

Whales and Dolphins
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Wed, Aug 10, 11   5:00 PM mbpeterson Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
We went out a little farther than usual until they spotted a Blue Whale which we watched for about 30 mins. We also saw Sunfish and Dolphins on the way back in so it was well worth the time and money for this activity. The adventure was scheduled for 2 hrs. but we were gone 3 hrs. because they wanted to make sure we saw a whale. We were on the 5 pm cruise and I recommend that you dress for it with a warm jacket and whatever else you need to remain comfortable since it is cooler out on the water. I had guests from out of the area and they loved this adventure and I highly recommend it for locals or tourists.

The entire experience is amazing. The captain was wonderful and did not turn back until we found a whale. Definitely worth the money and hope to go again!

great gift
Tue, Aug 9, 11   5:00 PM agriffith Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
I bought these tickets as a fathers day gift for my dad and my father in law. Ever since they went i have had nothing but thanks you from the both of them and the people they brought. My dad brought my 8 year old niece and this is all she talks about. She wanted to go back to school sooner so she could tell her friends all about it. I will definitely buy tickets again and maybe this time for myself to go.

One of those great Southern California tourist attractions that we, as So Cal natives, had never done until we had family from out-of-town visiting. Truly memorable and a ton of fun

An enjoyable adventure for our family

We had a great time and saw a blue whale come up several times between dives. It was worth the money we spent, and got some great pictures... Enjoy!
