Nice tour, good guys
Fri, Feb 1, 08   12:00 PM ricksabo Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
The trip was pretty much like I expected it to be. As an avid outdoorsman I know that wild animals don't travel by a set schedule and their actions can be un-predictable. I am sure many tourists expect to see about 100 whales per trip, all with their flukes about 15 feet out of the water for 10 seconds each so cameras can be focused. In a perfect world...right. We saw whales, the crew was pleasant...we had a good time. We got a few good photos....the price was right. All good stuff. Thanks

It was a lot of fun!

I love fishing! There's isn't anything else I would love to do more. I was pleased and satisfied with trip. The staff was very nice and helpful. I will continue using them for fishing trips. I originally reserved the full day, but was cancelled due to lack of reservations, but fishing season is almost here so there won't be any problems filling spots.

Beautiful Day on Whale Watching Excursion
Sat, Feb 14, 09   12:00 PM ricklyn Female 50-59 Local Family Without Children
This was a Valentine's Day excursion my husband and I decided we wanted to take. I was pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness of the boat and the guarantee of seeing whales (or at least dolphins) or they will give you "whale tickets" for another trip. Yes, we ended up getting the whale tickets but that was out of the generosity of the operators of the trip because we actually did see a small pod of white sided dolphins jumping and playing with a sea lion. It was really neat! There were about 100 people on our 2 hour trip but the boat was easily large enough to accomodate 200 people so there were no feelings of overcrowding. After we returned to the dock, we decided to have a late lunch at The Jolly Roger which was "a few steps" away. One other note...we decided my 86 year old, wheel chair boun father-in-law could easily come with us on our return adventure. The boat was very handicap accessible.

Really enjoyed the dolphin watching - amazing! We wish we could have seen a whale, but will come back to try again in the future.

Beautiful Boat, Wonderful Crew
Sat, Mar 14, 09   8:00 AM Richele Female 50-59 Local Family With Children
The boat was very nice and clean, the crew members were very friendly and helpful. The food offered on board was good and was fairly priced. So often food is overpriced (movie theatres) when they have a captive audience, but NOTwith this company. When a whale was spotted, the skipper gave us information about it (the whale) and told us what direction to look, as well as what the whale might do next. Also gave us great information about the sea lions lounging on a buoy. We very much appreciated the discount price as we would not have been able to afford to take our family on this lovely trip at the regular price. This was a great deal!

Exciting, fun activity
Sun, Jul 13, 08   1:00 PM RICHDI Male 60-69 Local Couple on a Date
The catamaran felt safe and yet we had quite a ride with the waves running about 4-6 feet. We didn't see any whales but quite a few dolphins.

Outstanding Family-Friendly Fishing Trip
Wed, Jul 30, 08   6:30 AM Richard_Lyon Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Three generations of my family participated and all caught multiple fish. Crew was extremely helpful and provided special attention to kids with backlashes. Boat wasn't crowded and there was ample room to minimze tangles. Affordable, professional and clean. Professional filleting of fish was only $1 per fish. Healthy environment for families with children. 5 hours was plenty of time and the captain picked 3 good locations. Would definitely do it again! (Perhaps the all-day or Catalina)

Barracuda fishing - opening day
Tue, May 27, 08   10:00 AM Richardscott Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
My group went out expecting bottom fishing not knowing we we only going for barracuda. It was fast paced and became frustrating to our family group from Colorado. My rented reel did not work well. My recommendation would be for the type of fishing (bottom or other) be given at the time reservations are made. Customers need to check their rented equipment before getting on the boat.

Bad Day for Whales, but still a great day
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

The staff at Dana Wharf is the best. The Captain is a very smart and articulate guy. You get an amusing and informed trip every time. The last time that we went, there was too much cloud cover, so finding the whales was difficult.
