Somewhat Disappointing
Thu, Jul 3  2:00 PM Steve7 Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We didn't see any whales, which isn't the sole reason for the disappointment (I understand that there has to be luck involved). What I was really disappointed about was the the crew provided no commentary throughout the two hour cruise, except for some comments regarding the sighting of several dolphins towards the end of the excursion. It would have been nice if the crew provided some information on whales in general and perhaps some stories on prior sightings, etc. They all looked bored with their jobs.

Dana Wharf rocks
Sun, Sep 28, 08   12:00 PM steve6847 Male 40-49 Local Couple on a Date
Dana Wharf Sportfishing is a great landing for fishing. It's easy to get to, close parking, no long walks on the dock when you are carrying your gear and a great staff. Every person in the shop and on the boat was friendly and helpful. The boat captain worked hard to put us on the fish. I've never had a fishing trip go this smoothly. We completely enjoyed our trip and will be back again real soon.

Did not see any Whales or Dolphins. Still good to get on boat. They did give a voucher for future boat trip.

Always a joy.....

I've been on this tour before and had a great time. The first time we saw no whales, in fact you can't count on seeing whales. Often you do see them, but not always. This time we saw a gray whale and a huge pod of dolphins. It was magical. No matter what sea life you are fortunate enough to see, this is a great experience and a wonderful way to get another perspective on the area.

Just didn't see any whales! Saw dolphins.
Sun, Dec 28, 08   12:00 PM StephenPetro Male 60-69 Local Family Without Children
The organization and process of ticketing, boarding, and disembarking was great. The crew was nice and they tried hard to find some whales in the two hour cruise. We spotted some riso dolphins near the end of the cruise and got up close for some good pictures of them. The ship was clean and comfortable. They did give us a $5 discount on fishing or whale watching later on.

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sat, Jun 25, 11   5:00 PM stephansen Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
The weather was great and the tour was nice, but my son really wanted to see whales. We saw lots of dolphins and they chased the boat and were jumping which was very neat, but no whales. We saw the sea lions for a brief min. They all sat on a marker and we pasted them on the way back to shore. I'm not sure if they would have given us a voucher for not seeing whales, but they didn't offer it up, and at the end we were kind of rushed off the boat. It was fun but you probably could find a cheaper dolphin tour

Great Time

We went out on the 12 pm boat and we had a blast.....the fish werent biting much but the crew did a great job and we all had fun. They tried several different spots to find fish but unfortunately it was a bit too windy so the fish were not easy to come by. Despite the lack of fish we had a great time out on the boat and I would definately do it again.

What's not to like about being out on the water on a beautiful day. Take the time to talk with the crew. They were so friendly and informative. Although we didn't see any whales, we did run into hundreds of dolphins and watched them for about an hour.

No whales...

The ride was fine... we saw a few dolphins but it was a pretty boring trip. Two hours seemed like too long to be on such rough water and not see any whales... probably wouldn't go again :(

Not so good

I went on the fishing boat thinking I was going to catch a lot of fish and big ones but I ended up wasting my time and money. I didn't catch anything. I don't recommend fishing with Dana Wharf.

FISH CLEANING FEE

Surprise $2 fee to clean each squid. Couldn't take home whole. Didn't find out about fee until near end of trip with 16 squid in sack. Great trip otherwise.

Good Ride, Good Crew
Tue, Jan 1, 08   12:00 PM stefanhajek Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
The boat was great and we saw a whale, some seals, and some dolphins, so really got all we wanted out of it. The main complaint was the crowd which was full of rude people (no fault of the tour) and the galley had a football game on full blast in surround, which didn't lend itself to the experience at all. The crew is great and knowledgeable. Overall, definitely recommended.
