Thanks Dana Wharf!

Just returned home from an AMAZING weekend spent fishing and whale watching with the wife for her birthday. I must say the staff and crew go above and beyond to make sure everyone has a memorable time and are very friendly. Hanapa'a (Jason K.) even sang Happy Birthday to the wife on the boat and played his ukulele, a moment she will never forget. We will be returning before the end of the summer for another fabulous weekend on the water! Thanks again Dana Wharf Sportfishing

Amazing time for both of us!

The Captain did a great job parking the boat right on the fish. Everyone on board was catching Calico Basson 8 out of 10 casts. Those that were struggling with technique had a crew member come and show them the tricks to have an eventful time. Captain and the crew were very friendly and out going, made the trip so much more enjoyable. I highly recommend it to anyone. Our next trip will be with our children, we landed so many fish, with quite a few keepers, that it would be near impossible for them to have a bad time! Loved it 100%......by the way, no need for a shore pole. Regular length pole works great, right Cory?!?

Enjoyed the ride and observing sealife. Captain seemed very knowledgeable and the crew was professional and friendly. Unfortunately the whales didn't want to come up much above the surface that day but we did see them!

We were watching whales within 20 minutes of leaving the dock. Followed three grey whales the whole time out and saw many breaches!

Fun but too many people
Sun, Mar 16  12:45 PM brian1y Male 30-39 Local Group of Friends
It was fun. But there were so many people, and so little space that lines were tangled every few minutes, and there wasn't a chance to cast or do anything other than just drop the hook straight down.

We are from Washington state....when you go fishing there. You can get. Something you can eat. ....and they don,t Drop the hook ten minutes. From the dock over a kelp bed... I was really let down after driving three hours. To get there and spending a.hundread and twenty bucks i wouldn,t reommend this to anybody ..we live in a. RV park and a lot of folks ask about the trip ...i don ,t think you will be hearinh from them

Whales, whales ~~ everywhere whales!
Wed, Mar 12  12:00 PM JamesPeeler Male 70+ Local Group of Friends
I never saw so many whales in all my life ~~ all at one time. Wow. They were called False Killer Whales and hardly ever seen here at the coastline of Dana Point. Literally hundreds of them.....at least that's what it seemed like. It didn't matter where you looked, there they were, not just one or two, but four, five, eight, ten, swimming together alongside the boat, in front and in back, swimming in unison everywhere! I even saw one "fluke" out of the water. It was fantastic. We had a couple with us from Kitali, Kenya, Africa and they were awe struck. Thank you, Captain Dave.
