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.

Great 2 hours ...

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.

Whale watch, worth the trip!
Tue, Mar 17, 09   2:00 PM WBailey Female 50-59 Combination Family Without Children
Enjoyed the trip out to watch the gray whales. Followed a couple of grays for quite a distance. The grays are always amazing creatures to watch, but almost more exciting is the pods of dolpins also seen on the trip. We have been out before, but on this trip we were taken back by the hundreds of dolphins we saw this time around. Their playfulness and common interest in playing in the boat's wake is certainly something to see. Great fun and phenomenal pics (in and out of the water!) We always enjoy the ride, the crew and the tour. Learn something new each time and find the trip well worth the money!

Great time!

We had a great time and yes we saw several whales. The amount of people on the boat was just right with everyone able to see because it wasn't crowded. We went during the Festival of Whales and the whole event was wonderful and we hope to make it again next year!
