Happy With Our Adventure

We had a great time. We saw a humpback whale that surfaced a number of times near the boat. The Captain was knowledgeable and informative, and the deckhands were polite and helpful. The boat was nice and clean. The weather was perfect. Our six year old did get bored and whiny. We would be open to doing another trip with the hopes of seeing dolphins.

I am the mother of a 5 year old boy. My son had never caught a fish before and I hadn't been fishing since I was a child. They crew took excellent care of us and Cameron and Jonathan both took extra time to help my son catch fish. We are excited to go again very soon. I signed my son up to be part of the kid's club as well.

Great trip even without any whales!

The boat left right on time, was very clean and the crew very friendly and informative. Since we didn't see any whales, we got a whale watch ticket for another trip for free anytime. Also, the food from the grille is fantastic - all freshly made!! There is plenty of seating and/or places to stand along the railing, so it didn't feel too crowded.

First time for my husband & son; only second time on ocean fishing trip for me. First time at age 12 was sea sick whole trip. So this trip was wonderful. Husband & I prepared with dramamine. Son got seasick but crew was very helpful. Fishing was a blast...Captain & Crew were great! Food from the galley was reasonable in price & taste good!Only down side was not many "keepers". Will definitely go back!

Hoping to eat ocean fish
Fri, Jun 20  5:30 PM ellisfamily Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This was a great time for our family! We enjoyed the boat ride, the staff was very kind and helpful with all of our needs. We were able to catch fish and it was fun for our kids to experience ocean fishing. They were a little disappointed that the fish we caught were not big enough to meet the legal catch and keep size. Overall it was a really great time to experience ocean fishing! Thanks Dana Wharf Sportfishing!

We LOVED it!

We had an amazing time. We were not expecting to see whales due to the season but a Minske whale surfaced several times, and he came close to the boat even though tour guide warned us they are kind of shy. We then had tons of dolphins sightings, they were speeding along beside and in front of our boat. So much fun! Clean, on time, knowledgeable guide. Recommended!

Staff were very accommodating and friendly on the phone and in person. We were on the catamaran and it was awesome! We saw plenty on dolphins but no whales;( but understandable, there's no predicting Mother Nature. We will be returning to use them again soon!

Our trip from the desert was well worth it Took my folks out for a Father's Day treat. Fully enjoyed it! The captain does his best to get situated for wildlife sightings. In our case whales were a no show. Huge numbers of dolphins, close up, made up for it.

next best thing to riding a dolphin
Tue, Jun 10  2:00 PM juliawest Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
This is about as close to seeing a dolphin as it gets! They were close enough that I was splashed by their blowholes. Fun to watch them swim with us and do acrobatics. The only improvement is for this company to be more communicative on boarding times. I was there way early because they said to board 30 minutes prior, only to board 30 minutes after departure time.

Enjoyed being out on the water
Tue, Jun 10  2:00 PM mucha563 Female 40-49 Local Individual
$22.50 for 2 hours out on a boat is a great deal. I knew that it wasn't a prime time to see whales; therefore, I wasn't disappointed that we did not see any. The captain really worked at finding some dolphins, which there wasn't that many but enough to make the trip fun. I get frustrated when people write bad reviews because they did not see a whale, these are not animals in an aquarium, so the captain can not make them stay in one place. I really enjoyed my time out on the water. The boat wasn't too crowded, which I can not say the same for another whale watch boat from another company that was out there at the same time. If you want to hear what the captain is saying you need to be inside or at the front of the boat. I would recommend this trip and I intend on taking the trip another time. Enjoy.
