The Captain worked at finding wild sea animals for us to watch, while at the same time, respecting their ocean domain.

No Whales but Lots of Dolphins
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Fri, May 15, 09   5:00 PM CarolEtgen Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This is the second time I've been out with my son and family when in CA - the first time we were lucky enough to be one of the first boats to see a blue whale for the season. This time we didn't have any whales, but two types of dolphins who entertained us wonderfully. The crew is great about describing the dolphins and their habits. It was cool - if the weather says overcast, remember to dress in layers. There were some people there in summer nothings that froze! We were late leaving because of some late comers, but the crew made sure we were out for our full 2 hours.

Great trip
Fri, May 15, 09   10:00 AM CheriAlguire Female 40-49 Local Family Without Children
My son (19) and I did this for his birthday. Neither of us had ever done a fishing trip like this before and we both loved it. I knew he would like it, but I did not expect to have such a good time. The crew was very helpful and supportive. My tip, wear sunscreen, even if it is cloudy! Great trip. You need to try this one!

It was fun

My parents were out for a visit and it was first time out on pacific ocean. It was fun for them, we were disappointed, that we did not see whales. The dolphins were about 10 miles out.

Fun but a bit disappointing
Fri, May 8, 09   1:00 PM KarenBonecki Female 40-49 Local Family Without Children
The reason I say disappointing is - the ad reads blue whale season begins in May. One of the first things the captain announced was, blue whale season begins in late May/early June. Perhaps you should change the dates to reflect this more accurately. The catamaran ride was great though.

Take it or leave it

The whale watch was just okay. We didn't see any whales, however we do understand that it's the end of the grey whale migration. We did see dolphins and sea lions. We enjoyed the trip, although I thought 2 hours was a little short. The staff were friendly but not very exciting. I'd say it's a good tour if you just want to go out and see what you may see, but don't expect too much.

94th Birthday
Wed, Apr 22, 09   10:00 AM jhlivingston Male 60-69 Local Family Without Children
My father-in-law told me that the only thing he wanted for his 94th birthday was to go ocean fishing, so my brother-in-law and I obliged. It was a wonderful day of fishing, and he caught a Sand Bass. The crew was knowledgeable, energetic, polite and helpful, and we look forward to going again on his 95th, if not before. Highly recommend this half day trip. Dana Wharf has a great website, easy to find location and parking, great captains and crews, and a beautiful coastline to enjoy, whether the fish are biting or not!

Dolphins and Whales!!
Wed, Apr 8, 09   10:00 AM gthunell Female 20-29 Unspecified Family Without Children
I cant believe how many dolphins we saw on our trip! Our boat was totally surrounded by them for over 30 minutes! Plus we got to see the elusive whale. The boat was clean, staff was friendly, and I would definitely suggest this trip- for people of all ages. My 83 year old grandfather even had a wonderful time!! Thanks for great memories :)

When individuals from outside California call to make a reservation, please share more information about fishing conditions and how they are different through out the year. Also we were unaware that food would be available on the boat.

Staff was friendly even if customers were not. We didn't see a whale, but they don't guarantee that you will. The dolphin's were cool.
