On the FIsh In Less Than One Hour.

I was pleasantly surprised by the abillity of the Captain to put us on the fish for this half day excursion. For twenty bucks it was much more a value than the full day trip I subsequently booked with this same company. The full day trip was a bad idea. The Captain and crew had taken along some acquaintances, and they proceeded to occupy the best spots at the stern of the boat for the entire duration of the trip while the Captain and crew looked on and never batted an eye or said a word - how unprofessional. This full day excursion was truly disappointing. I'll never return.

Fun boat trip
Mon, Jun 23, 08   5:00 PM natdanhart Male Unspecified Local Family With Children
The boat was really nice and the people were great. We were able to see some sea lions and a huge pod of dolphins. It was an incredible sight to see and I would definately recommend it to anyone. The boat however was very rocky so if you are a person that gets sea sick at all - you either may want to rethink or take precautions.

Whale Watchin'

The staff was very accomodating. Demonstrated pretty good knowledge of the area and the wildlife. Very enjoyable, but did not like that alcohol was served on board.

good, but...
Tue, Jun 17, 08   12:00 PM tvalentyne Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
Everything was great...the crew was good but, they spent more time traveling to a site than staying there to fish. It was rather frustrating to b/c with children you spend time getting them ready to fish, which on average they only stayed in each spot for 15-20 min. Its a 5 hour trip with 4 destenations and we got about 20 min in each spot. you do the math! My kids still loved it, but it did not give them any time to get ready, bait, or enjoy the little time they had to fish.

Very Crowded no enough help
Tue, Jun 17, 08   10:00 AM Sorcha1 Female 50-59 Local Family With Children
I have been taking these trips for several years and I do have to say that is was not one of my favorites. The boat was too crowded so crowded that people had no spots to fish and the deckhands had to make people move to allow others to fish. On many trips the captain has the people on the boat move around so everyone can fish in different parts of the boat this did not happen until two of us were overheard talking about it and then it was only one movement. Then one of the deckhands stood over the bait tank constantly chumming the water and hitting me in the head with fish! My son helped several people with their fish because he did not get down and help them with tangled lines and bringing in fish. I am careful what I bring on the boat because I know the rules, however there were people that brought coolers with beer in them and the people that were smoking was awful. It seemed like there were not enough deck hands to handle the numbers. I am not sure that I want to try this again anytime soon unless I go on a different day.

Great time Fishing

I had a great time fishing with Dana Wharf. The barracuda were hot. Between my father, nephew and me we caught five all at least 8lbs plus and those fish are pretty good fighters! I highly recommend.

Father's Day Outing
Sun, Jun 15, 08   10:00 AM MrsMWalsh Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
We participated in a half day outing. Our Zerve reservations were perfect. They checked us in quickly and easily at Dana Wharf. Once on the boat the crew was super helpful! My husband even won the jackpot and this was his first time fishing. The smell of the hamburgers from the galley were to die for! We had a great time!

Fishing and Fun
Sat, Jun 14, 08   12:00 PM johnwmilton Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
It is not exactly deep sea fishing but still a lot of fun. We mostly fished in waters between 30-50 feet deep. Most of the fish caught were bottom feeders. Not a lot of keepers. It is a great way to spend quality time with your family with a minimum of work on your own part. The helpers on the boat were available to do most of the hard work. However, baiting the hook with a live sardine was a challenge. They did have pieces of squid which made it easier for the squeemish. A lot of standing up. Plus, the boat did not have a lot of room to walk around so you are pretty much stuck in one place. Overall it was a lot of fun and a great way to see the coast line of California.

Had Fun
Tue, Jun 10, 08   10:00 AM MarkRico Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
From AZ. Had a great time eventhough I got skunked with my 11 year old daughter. Can't figure out why. I was using the same technique as everyone else. Person to left caught 2, person to the right caught 4. My daughter didn't fish much, she had fun playing with the live bait. They caught Barracuda like crazy and a couple of bass. We went on HALF PRICE Tuesday and the boat was organized chaos. About 45 fisherpeople on board. I WILL GO AGAIN but I'll bite the bullet for full price, maybe the boat will be HALF full.

Great 9th Birthday Gift for my Son
Fri, Jun 6, 08   6:30 AM kwoodnymph Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Thanks to the cap'n and crew I actually did more gross things in one day than in my whole life - and made my son proud. By the end of the day I was putting on and taking off my own bait, and didn't even mind getting fish scales all over me! We had a great time and caught 7 barracuda! Everyone in the crew was extremely helpful and professional. I highly reccomend this as a fun family outing
