Timing
Sat, Jun 7  6:30 AM Slujan319 Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
We were on the boat and ready to go at the departure time. We didn't leave for the bait barge until 6:55 and didn't leave the harbor until 7:15. So didn't actually start fishing until 7:35. We have been on these 1/2 day boats for years and usually 5-6 time per year. Not the only time this has happened, but it is convenient, local and my son really enjoys it. Also gets annoying when the deck has fish during the trip in the popular area (stern) and I've had my spot taken by a deck hand. Not a huge deal, but annoying. Overall the deck hands are great. Done some fishing in San Diego which is fun as well, but still a longer drive. Food for thought.

Took my 5yr old grandson out on the Sum Fun for some FUN! That is exactly what we got!! so much fun! Great boat to introduce the kids to sportfishing! The kid was a natural and brought up the first fish on the boat, and could not stop smiling the rest of the day as we caught fish for the next few hours. Great personable captain and the crew was awsome!

Even though we did not see whale (seems we missed the migration period by a week or two), we saw hundreds of dolphins and a large group of sea lions. Fun day out with family. Already planning another trip soon!

An Enjoyable Short Excursion

We are repeat customers for the two-hour boat trips on the Dana Pride - it's something we treat ourselves to whenever we have out-of-town friends and family visiting, and no one ever seems to get tired of it. There are almost always at least dolphin sightings, even if the whales are not around, and we have had memorable experiences in the center of huge pods of dolphins AND whales AND bird feeding frenzies. Always fun.

Great time with the Dolphins!

Unfortunately, we didn't see any whales, but we did find a pod of hundreds of dolphins! It was quite amazing, and we spent a lot of time out there watching them swim on all sides of the boat. Occasionally, we'd get a little show from a few of them doing some fancy jumps! It was great, we loved it!

Fishing at night is fun!

More bites with this trip. Lots of barracuda were caught on live anchovies. Some looked liked keepers, but I guess people didn't want them. Also lots of calico bass caught and a few sand bass. It helps to have a casting rod for the beginning of the trip while the sun is still out, and then a conventional for the rest of the trip. Enjoy everyone, and have fun catching fish!

Good fishing. Excellent crew.
Thu, May 22  5:30 PM CraigJoachim Male 60-69 Local Group of Friends
The calico bass were biting immediately on bait. Small barracuda and mackerel joined the bite later. We were fishing about 10 minutes from the jetty so we had a very short boat ride. Many of the fish were undersize(most 12 to 13 3/4 inches) but were a lot of fun. The crew was excellent. They were there to answer any questions, give helpful hints, and remove any fish from our hooks. It was an excellent trip!

It was late in the migration season, so we weren't sure we would see any Grays, but we saw a mother and calf and it was outstanding. We were able to follow them for a couple of hours and it was a wonderful experience. The yacht was clean, the crew was knowledgable and friendly. Highly recommend !!! Will be back when the Blue Whales migrate.

Dana Wharf DANA Point
Sat, May 17  2:00 PM lucindan Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
The boat was clean, the captain navigated comfortably the open sea, with good narrative. There was even a skipper whom came around often to ask how all were doing and if any questions. Very personable and friendly. The children enjoying the cabin had a table with all sorts of plastic fish with tags on each to play with and learn from during the trip, thank you!

My daughter and I had the Best time!!!! We saw lots of whales and dolphins and seals! My baby is 2 years old so I was worried if she'd have fun or be scared and she loved it and was so relaxed she fell asleep towards the end. The crew was amazing , so knowledgable and so sweet and helpful with us. We will be back to see the blue whales for sure and definitely recommend this ! Kortney and Kealani Robb
