Tons of fun. The captain and crew were really cool to talk to. The whales were HUGE, and basically everything about the whole event was great. Perfect place to take a date or to just go with family for something new and enjoyable

Bad Night of Fishing
Fri, May 13, 11   5:30 PM scworx Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
My son and I go out a lot on the 1/2 day boats. Dana Wharf sent out a email $20 off coupon for twilight fishing for Friday night. Since the fish count was up the night before, I thought it would be a good night to go out with my son. I was bummed when I saw that it was on the Reel Fun. They have no galley for guests to escape the weather or cold or to take a break. It was a very slow night. Hardly any hits at all and then it got cold and windy. I caught one short Calico and no other bites the whole night. There were 2 or 3 keepers the whole night. Just the wrong night to go. It can only get better from here. However, I'll stick to day boats if twilight is on the Reel Fun.

I took my family on this whale watching cruise not really knowing what to expect. The crew was very nice and accommodating. The boat was clean and nice. The captain and crew knew exactly where to go to find dolphins and boy did we see dolphins. The boat went right through a school of over a thousand dolphins. They were amazing to watch and unexpectedly quiet. While we were out we spotted a Fin Whale and later followed a California Grey Whale and her baby. My kids thought it was awesome. I was amazed. I would defiantly do this again!

Magical trip!
1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises

Took our 4 kids on the Tuesday 1/2 price sailing. What a great time! Saw an enormous pod of dolphins, sea lions, & a gray whale with her calf! The captain was very knowledgeable and was able to capture & keep my kids attention! I would recommend wearing layers of clothing, it gets chilly on the water! Also, go as early in the day as possible. Less crowded! All In all, a magical time was had by all of us!

Well organised - shame we saw NO whales though - BUT the organisers were quick to offer a no-cost repeat tour at OUR convenience. This was unexpected as wildlife is notoriously fickle

1/2 Day Fishing Trip was really a treat
Thu, May 5, 11   10:00 AM slvr68 Male 50-59 Local Individual
Went out on a 10 O'Clock trip on the Clemente, and it was great. Fishing had been marginal due to water temps being low, but a warm week leading up to Thursday had helped bump it up a bit, and the fishing was better than expected. Captain did a great job of getting us on a rock South of the pier, and it produced for several hours, with Rockfish, Sheephead, Calico's and Sand Bass. Fish were biting on squid, shrimp and live Chovies. Once this spot cooled off we headed back North for a few minutes and fished a rock with a lot of kelp, flylining Anchovies for Calico bass, and we hit quite a few. It was really fun, and just about the whole boat had something in their bags by then. Saw a few pods of dolphin, a few seals interested in a quick snack, jellyfish and so on. Crew did a great job of helping with snagged lines, bagging fish and grilling up some awesome grilled cheese sandwiches and killer cheeseburgers. All in all a really nice day. I've been fishing out of Dana Wharf SF for 20+ years, and as always, they have experienced Captains, great crew, and they know where to go to get you hooked up. And they're friendly too........ One thing to remember is that you can't park in the lot adjacent to the DWSF office anymore, as it has a four hour limit on that lot now, so you have to go check in at the office, get a parking pass, and then move your vehicle to the long term lot which is further away. So don't lug all your gear to the office, only to find out like I did that you have to go move your car. :(

Our experience was great!! We saw many dolphins, although we would have loved to have seen some whales. But this is something my kids and I will never forget.

Captain Larry did a wonderful job and with enthusiasm. You can tell that he loves what he does, so he does it well... It was a lot of fun and we saw thousands of dolphins happy to see us while they were playing all around our boat. They even practiced jumping the waves at the back of the boat. It was exciting!

Best value in California
Mon, May 2, 11   2:00 PM nolamay Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
I loved this activity from start to finish. Even without seeing any whales as this was off season and I was warned of that, the boat ride up the coast was so enjoyable. We did end up tracking into several PODS of dolphins. Being from Florida and an avid boater- Still that was the most dolphins I have ever seen in my life. What FUN! Crew and office folks were very knowledgable and helpful. The boat ride alone was worth the money at a very reasonable price. THANKS !

Fun ocean adventure for the family!

Took my husband, 4 year old son and 7 year old daughter on this trip spontaneously and had a great time! We got to see a grey whale with a calf, and the captain navigated us through a large hunting pod of dolphins...over 100 dolphins! The kids were talking about this trip for days!
