Fun day!

My eight year old and I took advantage of the kids fish free deal they had going on Sundays. It was a load of fun but a bit crowded. I guess a good deal is appreciated by more than just myself. The crew was very accomodating, upbeat and helpful. I couldn't have asked for more from them. We're going to be doing it again soon.

Even though we didn't get a chance to see whales, the dolphins and great view of the coast made up for it. The tour guide and crew did an excellent job.

Should call it Dolphin Watching
Sat, Sep 25, 10   2:00 PM 2010Ciauri Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
Crew on the boat was very nice, though their routine and dolphin "fun facts" seemed a bit canned. I signed my family up for whale watching, and it seemed right away that we would not be seeing any whales. For me, that reduced my excitement for seeing dolphins. I get it. You can't know where the whales will be. And maybe pods of dolphins are just more predictable. I thanked the crew for the trip. However, if you're going to send me a request for a survey, then I'll tell you my true feelings........

Litteraly " Reel Fun!"

Well to begin with, buying our tickets online through Zerve was fast and efficiant. 1,2,and 3 your done. Our trip consisted of my girlfriend ,my old man and myself. We set course from the Reel Fun vessel with the sun setting on the west. The captain and deck hand Dan were above outstanding and they were equally knowledgable and friendly. The captain made sure we all hooked up by aggressively keeping the catch alive and searching for new active spots. Our catch consisted of sculpin, sand bass and one giant lobster which was legally released. Once the fish were hooked and brought on board, the deckhand took care of the rest. Oh and if you had a chance to eat amongst the excitement, dont hesitate because a fresh juicy burger was a step away at the on board kitchen. Plus a refreshing cold one to wash it down. Once the sun dissapered the bite slowed down and we wrraped it up. Don't want to clean your fish later, no worries, an experienced fillet service was readily available as well( on deck). This was my first twilight bought not my first trip out of the wharf. I guess the evening trips were a secret because we had the boat to ourselves with only about ten people on board. REEL FUN....

Trip was awesome. Both kids caught their first fish which was great. Crew was great and the people at the office were great. In fact I had actually booked on the wrong day (my fault), but since there was room they let us go.

The crew on this boat was great. They were right on the spot every time a fish was caught, took if off hook, measured it for legal size, constantly helped especially newcomers to ocean fishing.

My wife's first fishing trip!

Perfect day on the "Sum Fun"! It was a great trip, a little short on catching fish because of cooler water. The captian moved several times on the look for more fish, he did a great job! The crew was very helpful with plenty of squid and live anchovies. They were always one step in front of any trouble. My wife had a great time and wants to go back when ever we can (works for me!) Thanks for a great trip!

First, there is no way to cancel and not to get refund for it. There is no other sports fishing like this other than Dana Wharf. Second, the boat was staying same place even there were no fish to catch. I never seen other place like this. So that people get bored for not catching any fish. Dana Wharf, they have to do something better than that. I would not go there any more.

The weather ands sea conditions wre perfect

I took two of my grandsons out . The weather and sea conditions couldn't have been better. The captain & crew noted that the fish counts had been down this season, but hoped that this trip we be better. They were right, plenty of bass were picked up (many keepers) . We had only 26 people on board, so the fishing was quite tolerable. We had plenty of fresh bait and squid, but I was happy to see many fish caught on jigs and swim baits. My grandsons had a nice time, although they only got a couple of fish, but were delighted in seeing all the fish brought on board. We'll be going out again, hoping this time we'll do better ourselves. The crew was helpful and supportive with the younger crowd. The only thing I would wish for is that the guys fishing would not stay in "their" spots, as it seemed the regulars seemed to hold on the stern, most often leaving their rods in their position. It would have been better if they rotated all positions, and not allowing to leave any rods on the rails. Otherwise, a very nice trip!

Worth the price of admission

I took my 83 year old mother and my 42 year old cousin and we enjoyed the relaxing and scenic 2+ hour trip. We did not see any whales but we saw dolphins and seals. The skipper was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of information about the area and the marine wildlife. The half-price Tuesday was well worth it. I am sure I will go again.

This was our third trip on this beautiul catameran. The boat was surrounded by dolphins for over an hour. Going on the ocean can be an experience depending on the weather, sea chop and cutomers comfort with being on a boat. This is the best of the best if you have never been out before or can get a bit queezy? The boat is new, and very stable,with all the amenities needed, toilets, a place to sit inside or out, easy viewing area for wilflife, snacks and drinks and protection from the weather if needed. The crew is professional, well versed on the dolphins, whales,seals, birds, and other wildlife and will give you enough background so you will depart knowing more than when you started, without a lecture. The price is fair for a two hour excursion. Always have a jacket.
