Excellent Family Outing
Sun, Jul 27  12:45 PM SMendelsohn Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
My son quickly picked it up, even for a first timer, he caught a barracuda and bass. He is asking to go out again. Staff was patient and supportive - overall great day out at sea.

Twilight fishing was a treat!
Sat, Jul 26  5:30 PM Ryanthomas Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Twilight fishing was a enjoyable experience for my family. Weather was perfect, sunset was great, and watching the dolphins and coastline was impressive. Fishing was not that hot but we had a great time anyway!

family summertime fishing
Sat, Jul 26  6:30 AM Ronparedes Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
the captain was very nice and interacted with all of us customers, but the deckhand Justin was not so nice, was not happy, I noticed when customers needed help Justin would help as if he was mad unhook their fish turn and walk back to his buddies and talk about how stupid some customer are!! When Justin unhooked customers fish he dropped it back in the ocean and walk away with out explaining why to the customers and kids .SAD ! when you take your family out and spend 245.00 dollars you expect some friendly help and understanding. w my family and I like Dana wharf but will try to avoid y boat with the deck hand JUSTIN aboard. thank you the Paredes family.

Fantastic Experience!
Tue, Jul 22  2:00 PM halfliter Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
We went out whale watching on the Dana Pride, and it was an amazing experience. The crew was attentive, warm and friendly and made sure we had a wonderful trip. We saw whales (the mother an calf that had been hanging around and a pod of dolphins). We will definitely go again with this group.

Exciting for children (mine are teenagers) and adults alike. We went in late July and were able to find many dolphins, alas, no whales.

1/2 off appropriate for half the show
Tue, Jul 22  10:00 AM morghugan Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
With recent reports of whales in the area, it seemed like a perfect opportunity to see them. While it was disappointing not to see any this trip, the common dolphin population was our in good numbers and provided an excellent view of their lives near shore. Cost was commensurate with content.

We went on 3 half day fishing trips
Mon, Jul 21  12:00 PM bentucker Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Our group of 3 adullts and 3 children had a terrfic time on each of the trips . The two morning trips were by far the most fun because we caught more fish...afternoon trip was very windy. The crews on each trip were helpful and attentive and made for an overall fun experience.
