We were nervous at first, Dana Point was one of the cheapest charters in the area. The experiance was definitly more than we expected. Thanks to a great crew and the help and attitude they gave. When we return I won't even bother looking for another deal, I'm headed for Dana Point!

The boat crew was fantastic, both in attitude and help. My son and I learn more about fishing in this one charter than over the last ten years. We caught 10 fish between us including, (2) Barracuda's!, Calico Bass, Sand Bass, Rock Fish and a Scorpion Fish! We were a little worried with the low price but I will no longer look any where else, when we come back we're headed for Dana Point!

Is there anyway that we can park first at the designated parking lot then came into the tackle shop to get the actual parking permit then return to the car with the displayed parking permit?

Great family fun.

I took my son (12) and daughter (8) on the early morning trip and we all had a great time. The crew were very friendly and helpful. There is lots to eat and drink offered on board but, as you would expect, it was rather expensive. Bring along your own picnic lunch and save some money. I would highly recommend this as a great family outing.

Whale watching in Dana Point was great fun!

Our whale watching experience was fantastic. We didn't actually get to see whales but so much other sea life. The Risso Dolphins were amazing as they almost appeared to glow blue under the water! We had so much interaction with the dolphins. The entire staff was great as well. Friendly and so knowledgeable. We will definitely go again!

Great trip

My son (19) and I did this for his birthday. Neither of us had ever done a fishing trip like this before and we both loved it. I knew he would like it, but I did not expect to have such a good time. The crew was very helpful and supportive. My tip, wear sunscreen, even if it is cloudy! Great trip. You need to try this one!

My parents were out for a visit and it was first time out on pacific ocean. It was fun for them, we were disappointed, that we did not see whales. The dolphins were about 10 miles out.

Fun but a bit disappointing
Fri, May 8, 09   1:00 PM KarenBonecki Female 40-49 Local Family Without Children
The reason I say disappointing is - the ad reads blue whale season begins in May. One of the first things the captain announced was, blue whale season begins in late May/early June. Perhaps you should change the dates to reflect this more accurately. The catamaran ride was great though.

The 5 hour fishing trip run by Dana Wharf is very well organized and is a real fun day. The staff is very friendly, helpful, and attentive. They provide more than enough live bait for the whole day of fishing. Although we did not catch much fish due to the early time of the year it was still a fun trip and we did see a lot of marine wildlife like sea lions and a whale. Everyone in my group is interested in doing this fishing trip again.

Great crew, great dolphin sightings!

Having done some research and read others reviews, I went on this trip with the understanding that I may not see any whales this late in the season. I booked this trip because of the location to where I was staying, the price (half price Tuesday) and a recommendation from a family member who has taken the cruise before. I have to say, I was not disappointed! The crew were all terrific, the boat was clean & comfortable and the refreshments available were great. I also like the fact that if no dolphins or whales were sighted, you would be issued a credit for a future cruise. We were lucky enough to see seals and LOTS of playful dolphins. We spent a lot of time with them and our captain explained their feeding habits and general behavior. I would HIGHLY recommend this whale watch to anyone. You may not see whales, but you will have a wonderful day!
