Our 2nd trip. Took 2 Grandchildren with us this time, they loved it. This will become a regular activity for ourselves and guests visiting us from back home (MI).

Wonderful Experience

The staff is what impressed me the most and the patience they showed the children! We will be bringing 20 scout boys on this trip because of your staff, expertise and professionalism. We were able to have a successful day and enjoy other clients. The staff were so personable, considerate and hard working. I would take 1000 of them! Great job! Pamela Shawkey

We had a blast! Out of the 5 of us, I caught the only keeper, a 6 lb halibut which won the jackpot! However all five of did catch something. The crew was extremely friendly and helpful and deserved all tips they received. My wife has the bug now and wants to try a 3/4 day boat now. You will be seeing us again soon.

Really enjoyed ourselves

The money was well worth it and the 2 for 1 Tuesday was great. I had a great time with my grandson and he really enjoyed himself. The staff was very helpful and even though the boat was crowded there was always someone around to assist.

Great Way to Spend Quality Family Time

Our family had a totally fun experience! Although the boat was a little crowded (we went on a half-price Tuesday), the crew was attentive to everyone and did a great job of helping out! Boat was clean, atmosphere was nice ... I think my eight-year old granddaughter is a fisherman at heart ... We'll do this again~ So much fun!!!

Weekday Fishing
Tue, Jul 8, 08   6:30 AM zeisjr Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
I brought my 13 year old son with me and we really had a great time, the crew was very helpful and always ready to lend a hand if lines got tangled and always there when a fish was landed to put it in the proper gunny sack. They even quickly re-rigged my son's line when it needed to be cut due to major tangles. I would highly reccomend Dana Wharf for day fishing.

An awesome time for ocean lovers.
Fri, Jul 4, 08   5:00 PM Buffyesprite Female 20-29 Local Family With Children
The trip was wonderful. I fully enjoyed myself as did my husband. We saw a few pods of dolphins on our trip and got some amazing shots. The trip wasn't too long nor too short. If you enjoy being on the water, you'll enjoy this trip. We went with our niece and nephew and they didn't seem to enjoy the trip as much. It's not really interactive and if you don't bring something to keep small children occupied, they may be bored within the first half hour. The only thing I feel I should caution about is that there is VERY limited seating. If you don't feel like you can stand for 2 hours or sit on the floor when you need a break, I wouldn't recommend it as the seats go quickly.

Catamaran Adventure Cruises

The boat was extremely clean and fast! It was a blast. The only downsides were that the cabin smelled of sewage and the man at the snack bar wasn't super friendly. Overall, it was a great experience. We saw many dolphins and even a few blue whales!

No fish great ocean view
Fri, Jul 4, 08   10:00 AM Bobski Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
I have been on this trip many times before but in the past 3 or 4 years the fishing has seemed to come to halt. The staff always has excuses for the poor catch conditions. Our boat left about 15 minutes late because they were waiting for more people to show up, not fair to those of us who got there on time. I also did'nt pay to sit in the harbor. The boat crew was very helpful and enthusiastic. Although the office/check in staff are very rude and do a poor job of welcoming your business. My recent trip on July 4 2008 will be my last one, after about 15 years of visitng at least once or twice a year.

Enjoyed seeing the dolphins
Fri, Jun 27, 08   5:00 PM TomMalik Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Our family had a great time. We went to seaworld the previous day and were looking forward to seeing sealife in their natural habitat. We were in the water about 20 minutes when we ran into a huge pod of common dolphins. We saw pods of risso and more common dolphins. It was amazing watching the dolphins swim all around the boat. We were down on the front deck and could see the dolphins racing on the side and crossing the boats front bow. We were hoping to see the blue whale but no such luck. On the way back there was a beautiful view of the coastline and sailboats. We did a lot of different things on our vacation but the ocean cruise was the most entertaining.

Fun trip
Thu, Jun 26, 08   5:00 PM LaurenHolder Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
There were 3 adults and a 4 year old in our party and everyone enjoyed themselves. We did the evening Whale Watching tour and sat up top of the Dana Pride. The crew really worked hard to find marine life for us. While we did not see any whales, nor had we expected to given we were there at the end of June, we did see a couple different types of dolphins. They swam right next to the boat and were fun to watch. The weather was great and we would do this again.

Plan more effectively for the half day trip!
Thu, Jun 26, 08   6:30 AM bjjohnson25 Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I understand that it is hard to determine where fish are going to be and even harder to determine if you will catch any fish. My suggestion is that the Captain has a plan. For the half day trip with my kids, my objective was to spend as much time fishing as possible. The majority of our trip was spent driving to a location and determining if the location had fish beneath us. For the 5 hour trip, we only stopped at 3 locations to drop our lines. In addition, the locations we stopped had very few legal fish to keep. It was a great experience, but I would recommend your guides to have a more detailed plan for future trips. I would definitely do it again, just wish we had more time fishing and less time commuting.

Amazing dolphins and sea lions but no whales
Tue, Jun 24, 08   5:00 PM sblake0000 Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The trip was awesome. We saw so many dolphins swimming freely in the ocean. We saw a couple of sea lions. We didn't see any whales but it wasn't guarenteed that we would. I would highly recommend this activity. Quick tip though bring layers for clothing just incase it's windy.

Had a nice trip with my grandson
Tue, Jun 24, 08   12:00 PM soccer2 Male 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
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.
