Whale of a day (without whales)
Wed, Jun 27, 12   12:00 PM nraman Male 50-59 Local Family Without Children
While it was disappointing we had no whales on this trip, the Common and Bottlenose dolphins were in abundance and great to watch. The crew were very pleasant and kept us updated to what to watch for and what we might see. We were fortunate to have an individual on board very informed of marine information and were able to talk with him about many things. Looking forward to another trip in the future.

Always a great time, very nice people and great crew! We did, however, catch NO FISH, I think the 1/2 boat cleaned about 10 fish end of the day We'll be back, thanks

This was a fabulous trip. We saw a blue whale and a megapod of common dolphins. It was an amazing experience. I highly recommend this!

Excellent trip. Good presentation. You can't control the fishing, the weather or the whale watching.

Could not have been better!

My family & I went on this excursion on a beautiful day in Dana Point. I read the reviews before booking this - they were all positive so I knew we would have a great time and we did. Boat was on time, captain informative, We spotted a blue whale (as well as many dolphins) and the captain pursued the blue whale for a long time to make sure we all had a good chance to see it. I would do this excursion again during whale season.

Captain not very smart.

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.

No fish

First, I could not buy a ticket with my PC because, as always, the display indicated that the trip was sold out. How ever, I had no trouble using my IPhone to get tickets. Parking was difficult. The trip and crew were friendly and helpful, but they could 't find fish that would bite. My daughter had a great time.

I was not told that the 4 ticket i bought for the trip with my wife, son and his girlfriend were going to be on a boat that was designed for kids. If you go out of Dana Point do NOT go on a Sunday unless you want to spend your trip fixing your lines that will be crossed the whole trip. Felt i should have been informed before i went! BTW, Captain did not find the fish!

Fun and exciting trip...

Although we didn't catch anything, my son (10 years) had a good time on the boat. He hooked a nice barracuda but lost it during the retrieve. The deck hands were a lot of help for everyone, and the hamburgers are to die for. I recommend Dana Wharf Sport fishing to everyone, especially those with children.

Bad Weather - Bad Experience
Sat, Jun 23, 12   5:30 PM bgsync Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
The weather for the trip became unpleasant, in particular the winds and high swells. Caused significant swaying of the boat, even to the point where the water level came up to the side of the deck on several occasions as the boat swayed from side to side. The crew tried several locations, but were unsuccessful in making he experience more pleasant. While I don't expect to catch fish, I would hope the Dana Warf would use its judgement in possible postposing or rescheduling trips when it is certain to be a bad experience for its customers.
