Lots of fun and a great show

Maybe it was just a lucky day for us, but within a half-hour of leaving the dock we happened upon two blue whales and followed them around for the better part of two hours as they dived and re-surfaced. The Captain did an excellent job of tracking them. On our way back to port we took a loop through a school of dolphins who raced along with the boat, jumping out of the water as they swam along. It was quite a thrill.

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

The Blue Whale watching cruise far exceeded our expectations. The staff was friendly and knowledgable and imparted just the right info at just the right time. The boat was clean and comfortable, the weather was fantastic, the wildlife cooperated as if trained to do so. The Common Dolphins were there to see in incredible #'s and swam with the boat, performing for us as if trained to do so. Then the HIGHLIGHT of our cruise appeared, A couple of Blue Whales , which we sighted numerous times as they surfaced , swam and dove and reappeared several times to our surprise and enjoyment. THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE WAS PHENOMINAL !! THANK YOU DANA WHARF FOR AN EXPERIENCE MY WIFE AND I WILL NEVER FORGET !! Scott & Danielle Steinberg.

The Ocean Adventure Cruise was worth the Money
Sat, Jul 4, 09   1:00 PM deeltee Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We had a good time on our cruise. The boat was clean and staff was friendly. Since we went out on a weekend a marine biologist was on board. She started us off with some basic but informative facts about the species we might see. Unfortunately we didn't spot a whale but we did see quite a few bottle nosed dolphins. The crew was able to spot them and then keep them engaged so we'd have more time to see them and take photos. I have no complaints about this company or cruise. I think it was a good value for the money and certainly something out of the ordinary to do on vacation.

We had a great time & the staff was excellent

Great experience for us non fisherman. The staff was right there to help us when we caught a fish as we had no equipment. It was the deep sea fishing experience I was hoping to have for our family with 3 kids, 10, 15, & 17. Turk's for dinner afterwards was excellent too!

My 13 year old son and I had a Great time, the crew was very helpful, and attentive. The other visitors on the boat were all plesant, this was our second trip from here, the first one we caught a lot of fish this time we were not as lucky. Both times were a Great time!

Went on the 1/2 day fishing boat Sum Fun. There must have been 40 anglers and only 5 fish caught. The skipper did not put us on any fish. We fished the same kelp bed twice. I would not recommend this fishing outfit.

Great Trip
Mon, Jun 29, 09   6:30 AM Mjaschek Male 40-49 Local Family Without Children
We had a party of seven people for the fishing trip. Getting 7 people ready to go and be on time can be a real challenge. We were late and DanaWharf held the fishing boat for us. The crew on board, Eric, Brian & Ben were terrific. My wife let her reel go a few times and the guys were Johnny on the spot to help her with her tangled mess. My wife son, the birthday boy, had a broken wrist with a cast on. Each time he needed new bait, again the crew was there to help him out. I would highly recommend a fishing trip with this company.

I loved it, Morgan the Marine Biologist, the Catamaran, I was able to relax, I even took my shoes off. Everyone was respectful, helpful and polite. I did not want to come back to shore. Thank you to all the employees for making it so wonderful. I had to hold back tears when the dolphins were right at the front of the Catamaran riding along with us. It was a dream, that I always wanted to experience.

Actual fishing
Sun, Jun 28, 09   6:30 AM prndds Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
This experience of fishing has created excitement in my kids to go for fishing. My 9 yr old daughter caught 10 and my son 6 yrs old caught 5 - half the time he was crying :-) The best part is the location. No worries of looking for the fish the captain takes us to a place where there is fish and we catch -simple and easy. The crew is very helpful and full of energy. They are there whenever you need them. I have already recommended it to my friends and we will certainly go again. JUST GREAT!

What a great trip!

We took my 8 year old daughter and mother (who was visiting from the East coast) on a 2.5 hour whale watching trip on 6/27. The catamaran was ideal for the trip - lots of deck space, very clean, etc. They only take a small group on each of these trips, so there was plenty of room for everyone, and it wasn't crowded at all. The crew was fantastic - very helpful and friendly, and eager to make sure everyone had a great time. We saw a HUGE pod of common dolphins pretty much right away, and then the crew got a tip on a fin whale and we took off to try and find it. Which we did! We stayed near it for a while (saw it come up 3 times), and although bobbing around in the not-so-still water was a little tough on some stomachs, it was worth it to see such a magnificent sight. The company doesn't guarantee that trips will see whales each time, but they certainly seemed to try hard to make it happen. We will DEFINITELY be going back out with them again soon!

Smoking crew ruined it !!!
Tue, Jun 23, 09   12:00 PM Hnchao Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
The crew smoked non-stopped! I couldn't really enjoy fishing when i had to move around avoiding the smoke, even when they were helping you w/ the fish, they smoked. Wish there was a non-smoking boat. Would go again if there was.

Loved having a marine biologist on board. I appreciated them taking the time to locate the pod of dolphins so we had an extra exciting few hours at sea. Great staff too.
