Experience of a lifetime
Sat, Sep 5, 09   11:00 AM ToddThomas Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
My 12 year old son and I went out at 11:00 a.m. on 9/5/09. We would have enjoyed our excursion even if we had not seen a single whale. The crew was friendly and did a great job explaining the marine life that is found in that area. The boat was perfect with plenty of room to move around. The sandwiches that we purchased from the galley were outstanding. To top it off, not only did we see 2 huge blue whales up close but the crew put us in the middle of a pod of 800 to 1000 dolphin. I want to thank everyone at the Dana Wharf for an experience of a lifetime.

wrong rental equipment

I would suggest that if the boat will be fishing from the top, the rod rental should suggest casting type of rod. It's frustrating when everyone is catching fish by casting and we only have bottom fishing rod rentals.

Blue Whale and dolphins sighted!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

Very well organised trip, spacious boat with plenty of seating. 10 dolphins were swimming very close to the boat and we saw a blue whale swimming with its calf .We then sighted another very large blue whale and several sealions. The whole family had a great time and there was sufficient space on the boat for everybody to have a good view.

Great excitement

My husband and I along with out two children(6 & 8) took the whale watching trip on Tuesday from 5-7. The boat trip and the scenery was amazing. The first half hour we did not see anything and then we spooted a pod of dolphins jumping and swiming right up to our boat. There must have been at least 20 of them. Then we spotted a blue whale. The captain steered the boat so we could get fairly close to him. He came up 4 times and we saw his tail out of the water twice. It was amazing. The crew member also gave alot of information on whales. Would definitely recommend the toup and on Tuesday they offer a discount.

Nervous at first

I usually go out on a friends private boat and was a bit nervous about a chartered fishing trip. The crew put me at ease pretty much before we left the harbor. We had a great time and caught plenty of fish to make the day a huge success. The burgers on board we just short of amazing. We had a great time and I can't wait to go out again. Next time the 3/4 day trip.

It was a great experience for the whole family. A beautiful ride, a talented crew, not overly crowded, and we saw lots of whales. I highly recommend.

Only small fish were caught, no keepers
Tue, Aug 18, 09   5:30 PM Neitzelfam Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I was a bit disappointed in this fishing trip. We have went fishing several times on the Oregon Coast and have caught big fish one right after the other but California fishing was not too good to us Idahoans. Our kids caught a few small fish but we didn't get to keep any of them and that was such a disappointment because we were ready to fry up some fish. Oh well, maybe next time.

Good for 1/2 price...

Tue, Aug 18, 09   5:30 PM ElizMcD Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We went on a Tuesday night for half price, and I don't think it was worth more than that. The boat is basically a large fishing boat with not much room and few places to sit. We ended up climbing on top of one of the bait boxes and sitting there, which was okay for the short amount of time. We did see dolphins and a few sea lions, and they were amazing, but no whales and no coupons off our next visit (because we were already discounted?). As long as expectations are properly set, this is a fine activitiy.
