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

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.

Took my Nephew out to a squid trip both of us had a great time and I loved the fact that they had blue moon beer on the boat.

This was our third time whale watching. We did not see any whales and not as many dolphin as usual BUT they gave us our ticket back to come another time which I thought was great. Staff was wonderful and the boat ride was worth it too.

WHAT A TIME!! WHAT A TIME!!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Mon, Jul 20, 09   5:00 PM stavonnie Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
ANYONE CONSIDERING THE OCEAN ADVENTURES TOURS FROM MORNING OR EVENING DEPARTATIONS, ARE SPECTACULAR. I JUST WENT ON MY ADVENTURE CRUISE WITH MY FAMILY 7-20-09 AND SAW A BLUE WHALE!! IT WAS DEFINATELY WONDERFUL TO ENJOY ALONG WITH THE FAMILY, WE ALSO SAW MANY OF THE RISSO DOLPHINS AND JUST GORGEOUS PODS OF OTHER DOLPHINS. VERY INFORMATIONAL ALSO, YOU ARE EDUCATED EVERY STEP OF THE WAY WITH THE CAPTAIN IN CHARGE OF SPEAKING, AND A NICE CREW TO SERVE YOU. VERY EXCITING BEING SO CLOSE TO THE SIGHTS OF ACTION OFF THE BOAT, WHICH WAS ALSO BEAUTIFUL I MIGHT ADD. EVERY ONE ON THE BOAT HAD PLENTY OF ROOM TO WATCH AND ENJOY IN THEIR OWN SPACE ON ALL SIDES OF THE BOAT WHETHER YOU CHOOSE WHALE WATCHING, FISHING OR EVENING OCEAN ADVENTURES YOU WILL SURELY ENJOY YOURSELF WITH FAMILY OR ON A ROMANTIC CRUISE, AND EVEN ALONE, WE MET VERY NICE STRANGERS

Good time but be prepared
Thu, Aug 7  5:30 PM staveandmo Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This was a good time but be prepared -- the rods and reels that you rent (separate fee) are of poor quality and not typical of a deep sea fishing trip in FL. Caught some nice bass and yellow-tail

Beautiful!

The trip was fantastic! We actually didn't see any whales, but saw a huge pod of probably 500 dolphin which was just as good if not better. The dolphin stayed with the boat for ages. We saw them up close and even got splashed as they leapt into the air, showing off for us. There were alot of moms with babies at their sides which was amazing. At one point the dolphin came across a huge school of sardine and began feeding. Suddenly the air and the water were filled with huge majestic Pelicans and squawking seagulls trying to get in on the action. It made me wish I could go out there every single day. The crew were polite although not too attentive. We were surprised to find out after we departed that the blue whale season was long over, which is not what the web site said. It would have been nice to know that. The captain shared some interesting facts about the animals but I wished he had shared more. The crew seemed busy watching a baseball game on t.v. instead. But all in all it was a wonderful day and for the price you can't beat it. For me it beats a cheeseburger and a movie anyday! I will go again... soon!

good day on the water

Friendly, helpful crew made the fishing enjoyable. We caught enough fish for dinner without landing anything very large. It was winter fishing and we were satisfied with the day. Equipment rented was fine and bait supplied did the tick.
