Well organised - shame we saw NO whales though

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!

Horrible Trip!!
Sat, Apr 30, 11   5:30 PM Radhi96 Male Under 20 Unspecified Group of Friends
So i went on the same boat last summer and it was great. Caught lots of fish and even had god food, but this timeit was a different story. ther didnt even take us to a good spot didnt chum the water out of the 30 people on the boat 10 fish were caught the food took a good 30 minutes to get to you and the crew was horrible. DONT GO ON THIS TRIP!!!!! I may be young but i am an experienced fisherman and i think this was a waist of money. Pick another company to give your monry to.

Well, we had an amazing but maybe not typical experience. The trip we were on wasn't too crowded which was really nice. Then we got to follow a mama gray whale with her baby. The baby actually breached, and I caught it on video. We really enjoyed our trip. I got some food from the galley, too. The grilled cheese was delicious.

Even though we didn't see any whales, we saw a small pod of common dolphins. The crew was fabulous!
