No whales or dolphins
Mon, Apr 19, 10   12:00 PM TomParlett Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Though it was a beautiful day, there were no whales or dolphins to be seen. We were given a rain check for a future trip but being from quite a distance away we can not use them. The boat we were on is a party fishing boat (that I fished on about 25 years ago) so there is no outside seating, other than on the bait tanks. Inside there is bench seating with limited visibility though the windows due to the bench seats being so low. It is not the ideal vessel for comfort while trying to view sea life.

First visit to the west coast

Nice boat. Clean, well kept, friendly captain and crew, saw whales and lots of dolphins. Actually went two days in a row. The first day was great and when they handed us a 1/2 price offer to go again....we signed up for the next day! Marie and Tom Johnson, Spencer, Iowa

Enjoyed seeing the dolphins
Fri, Jun 27, 08   5:00 PM TomMalik Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Our family had a great time. We went to seaworld the previous day and were looking forward to seeing sealife in their natural habitat. We were in the water about 20 minutes when we ran into a huge pod of common dolphins. We saw pods of risso and more common dolphins. It was amazing watching the dolphins swim all around the boat. We were down on the front deck and could see the dolphins racing on the side and crossing the boats front bow. We were hoping to see the blue whale but no such luck. On the way back there was a beautiful view of the coastline and sailboats. We did a lot of different things on our vacation but the ocean cruise was the most entertaining.

A great time and educational too!

We had a wonderful time, the boat was nice and new, the staff were very friendly and incredibly knowledgable. I will definitely be back, and will recommend it to others! We saw a few different whales as well as two pods of dolphins and sea lions, what an adventure!

A good day
Sat, Apr 4, 09   12:00 PM tomjef Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The weather was good and the accomodations were good also. The staff was helpful in setting up the proper gear and bait. Although the catch of fish was minimal, there was a grey whale pup that was seen, dolphins, and an awnry sea lion (I expect he was catching fish), All in all a good trip and reasonably priced. I expect to go on another sea fishing adventure this summer when the fish are a little more plentiful.

Great guys on the boat

My son and his friend went out fishing and enjoyed themselves. Caught alot of fish early, then nothing the last couple hours, but that's fishing (otherwise they'd call it catching!) I've been out many times with these folks and they're always friendly and helpful. A fun time!

MY SON HAD FUN ANC CAUGHT HIS FIRST BARRACUDA
Sun, Jul 17, 11   12:45 PM TomEhinger23 Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
WE HAD A GOOD TIME. WISH WE CAUGHT MORE FISH. THE DECKHANDS WERE A GREAT HELP. THE ONLY NEGATIVE THING I CAN SAY IS THE TRIP ENDED EARLY. WE LEFT THE DOCK AT 12;45 PM AND BACK AT THE DOCK AT 5;00 PM. I THOUGHT THE TRIP WAS FROM 12;30 TO 5;45 PM. OTHERWISE IT WAS A FUN EXPERIENCE FOR MY SON. WE WILL PROBABLY GO AGAIN.

Experience of a lifetime
Sat, Sep 5, 09   11:00 AM ToddThomas Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
My 12 year old son and I went out at 11:00 a.m. on 9/5/09. We would have enjoyed our excursion even if we had not seen a single whale. The crew was friendly and did a great job explaining the marine life that is found in that area. The boat was perfect with plenty of room to move around. The sandwiches that we purchased from the galley were outstanding. To top it off, not only did we see 2 huge blue whales up close but the crew put us in the middle of a pod of 800 to 1000 dolphin. I want to thank everyone at the Dana Wharf for an experience of a lifetime.

Captain not very smart.
Mon, Jun 25, 12   5:30 PM ToddSwans Male 30-39 Local Family With Children
Captain stopped at location with seals swimming under the boat. He had us fish there for an hour and ten minutes before it dawned on him that no fish would bite with seals in the area.
