Great Adventure

I have been to the gulf coast of Texas and went on dolphin watch tours which were pretty good. This adventure was the best. We saw hundreds of dolpins and the staff was extremely knowledgable on dolphins and whales. The interesting facts and all of the dolphins really made this trip worth while. I would highly recommend this for an afternoon outing.

Only 1 person on the boat caught a legal size fish

It was fun to go out on the boat. However, only one person caught a single (1) fish of legal size. The boat took us to five or six different places where the captain thought there might be fish to catch. . . . nothing! My brother was visiting and I thought fishing would be fun since we hadn't fished together in over 30 years. What a big disappointment.

A Great Day!

We had a wonderful trip with Captain Todd and his crew. Over the course of our time on the boat we saw a Gray whale, Common Dolphin, Mola Mola, Sea Lions, and numerous sea birds. In addition to seeing the wildlife, we gained great insights into the animals and the habitat in which they live. Even learned a bit about human impacts. It was a great day!

great day on the water

The trip itself was great. The crue was fantastic. Could not ask for better. But... The girls at the check in store bad attitudes. Wanted to look at there phones instead of helping customers. It just seemed like we got in there way . One guy was in the store and he helped us out . Found out the hard way about needing a parking permit or you can get your car towed.

Love the Crew!

Fishing with the crew of the Sum Fun makes it easy for the novice fisherman to have a great time and catch fish with the best of them! This was my second trip with Dana Wharf Sportsfishing, and both trips have been amazing! I can't wait for our next time as we are planning another trip soon!

First visit to the west coast

Nice boat. Clean, well kept, friendly captain and crew, saw whales and lots of dolphins. Actually went two days in a row. The first day was great and when they handed us a 1/2 price offer to go again....we signed up for the next day! Marie and Tom Johnson, Spencer, Iowa

I really enjoyed this trip. Even though we didn't see any whales, it was still fun. Since we didn't see any whales, they gave our ticket back to come another time. I would do it again in a heart beat. Very exciting

BEST TRIP EVER!!!
Fri, Apr 12, 13   12:00 PM susanschloss Female 50-59 Local Couple on a Date
This by far was the best Whale watching experience ever!! The crew was outstanding, very informative while continually searching for whales and dolphins. Captain Jack and crew found a mother and calf, lots of dolphins played close to the boat while another Gray Whale decided to come play with the dolphins. A MUST if you are in the area!!

Well Done

The crew of the Dana Pride do a great job, and the boat is very pleasant. We did see some whales, but nothing spectacular as they were busy migrating, so just a few fins and no breaches. We also saw dolphins and thought the skipper did a fine job educating the passengers with his comments. Good solid family fun.

We've never been disappointed

As a local who has a lot of visitors I appreciate the half-price discount offered every Tuesday. It gives me a chance to introduce this wonderful adventure to as many of our guests as possible--without making too big a dent in my wallet.

the captain of the boat gave us so much information about the whales we might see that day and all the other sea animals in the area. so much interesting information. the boat itself was very comforable with inside and outside sitting areas along with plenty of room to stand and move around. great day

Wonderful and Educational outing
Tue, Mar 12, 13   10:00 AM armellelc Unspecified 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
We had a great time on our whale watching activity. We got to see two whales (and many sea lions and dolphins), and the captain stayed longer than he was supposed to in order to make sure that we could get a good look, keeping track of (and telling us) how long it might be before it resurfaced. The captain obviously enjoys his work and makes sure that we enjoy our trip, passing on all kinds of very educational information throughout much of the 2 hours, and making sure that everybody gets to see as much as possible. We learned a lot while seeing some wonderful wildlife and having a wonderful time. We would definitely do it again (and for half-price, this was beyond what we were expecting), so we encourage everyone to try it.

Fantastic! Great orientation breakfast with Todd
Sun, Mar 10, 13   11:30 AM Travelpals Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
I am a travel agent in BC Canada and we booked a tour plus orientation breakfast with Captain Todd. Could have sat and listened to him all day but a boat was calling our name! Great weather, and fantastic time out on the water. Saw whales and dolphins and spectacular coastal scenery. Really enjoyed it and for the price of $45 pp this is well worth it. Would do it again in a heartbeat. I will be recommending this area to clients who plan a trip in Southern California as it's definitely something they can do while enjoying a Disneyland vacation. I plan to connect with Todd and build a working relationship with Dana Wharf with the hopes of perhaps a group tour at some time. Tiffany in the office was a great help with giving directions and information when I called with questions before the tour. Thanks Tiffany! Look forward to doing another tour on another visit to this beautiful area.
