Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Fri, Jul 1, 11   5:00 PM JMurphCA Male 30-39 Local Family Without Children
My wife, my parents, and I chose a Friday evening trip and couldn't have planned a better activity. We were fortunate enough to see and follow a Blue Whale! My parents were visiting from the midwest and this was a once in a lifetime experience that they will never forget. The crew was great and the boat wasn't too crowded- everyone had a chance to move into position to see the whale. We all highly recommend this experience.

Good trip for a fishing experience for the value.
Wed, Jun 29, 11   5:30 PM aaparo Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
What was supposed to be a five hour excursion turned into four hours of choppy waters and people getting sick all over the boat. My son caught a good sized barracuda, and was thrilled. Thought it was a good experience for the money. The Dana Wharf shop made it easy to get fishing equipment and license in one convenient place. Would definitely recommend the trip, and would love to do it again!

Seeing a whale is the icing on the cake!
Tue, Jun 28, 11   5:00 PM sschaney Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We are from the East Coast and simply enjoyed viewing the scenery from the water. The cliffs and the homes were magnificent. The crew was friendly and the boat was perfect for its purpose. Passing the pelicans and having a couple fly along side was cool to witness. Seeing the sealions on the buoy was entertaining as well. Spotting the spray of the blue whale off in the distance was awesome. Getting closer and closer to it was exhilerating. We did not see a Pacific Life commercial, but it was spectacular nonetheless.

MY DAUGHHTER WAS FIRST AFRAID TO GO IN BUT LLATER ON SHE STARTED OPENING UP AND SHOED INTEREST IN THE OCEAN. THEY LOVED IT ESPECIALLY WHEN THE WHALE SIGHTINGS CAME. THEY JUST LOVE THE WHALE AND THE SEALS.

I went with my wife and two boys, ages 9 and 12. We found the boat clean, on time and the crew very helpful. we went on a Tuesday afternoon 1/2 priced whale watching tour, but did not see any whales, but were not disappointed. We saw plenty of dolphins which were very cool to experience. They seemed to want to entertain us and did a great job. The boat was out to sea for about 2 hours which seemed to be the right amount of time to spend on the water.

Tue, Jun 28, 11   2:00 PM parkersteel Male 40-49 Local Group of Friends
I am a local and have seen thousands of dolphins in my lifetime, so I figured that the trip would be fairly disappointing if we didn't see any whales - I was wrong! We saw hundreds of dolphins, and they really put a show on for us. The boat itself was quite nice; clean, large enough to easily accommodate the entire passenger load, and with a decent snack bar. 2-hours was long enough to get well outside the harbor and enjoy the sites. Everyone in my group had a great time, and I would highly recommend this activity! Especially on Tuesdays, when it is half priced :)

Terrific Deep Sea Fishing Outfitter
Sun, Jun 26, 11   12:45 PM Qiqueen Unspecified 50-59 Local Family With Children
My teenaged son has been on several 1/2 day trips with this outfitter- he always has a great time. Each boat has a different captain and crew but all are very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend the Kids Club and Kids Fishing Camp in the summer, too.

Excellent day in the sun!
Sun, Jun 26, 11   12:00 PM SherylAdams Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We had a great time fishing together as a family. The crew was very friendly and helpful. Always available to take fish off our lines and answer questions. We didn't catch a ton, but were able to a have one meal of various fish. It was a beautiful day and we saw lots of other wild life such as dolphin swimming right along side the boat! It was awesome! We will definitely do this again next time we're visiting.

Nice boat trip
Sat, Jun 25, 11   6:00 PM Smendonca Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The trip was very nice, we saw a couple of dolphins, many sea lions and had a wonderful view of the immediate coast. I usually get seasick but found the boat to be reasonably stable even when we left the harbor. I also liked that with the online ticket receipt, the company provided useful tips for people not used to boats (what to bring, what not to bring etc.). The only less than positive aspect of the experience had to do with the exchange of the online receipt for tickets. The company's offices at the harbor are not clearly marked and we had no idea we had to exchange the print out of our online receipt for tickets. Fortunately, the people at the boat accepted our print out and did not make us go back to find the office.
