Good captains on the boat put us right on the whales only problem on Rhenish was that the front was overfilled

OK, but you had to be in the front of the boat

Crew went to a lot of trouble to find us a whale; however, the front of the boat was not big enough for everyone to have a spot at the rail. For those of us on the side or back of the boat there wasn't a whole lot to see since every time a whale was signted, they always turned the boat so that only those in front could really see it. It would have been nice if they occasionally positioned the boat so that others could see the whales better, rather than just those lucky enough to find a place at the front.

The best Father and son time imagineable, Captain Chris Pita and his way with kids made the low fish count definetely worth a 1/2 day trip, I will never forget and neither will he! Hats Off to Dana Wharf!

I went with my sister inlaw we had a nice time everyone was real helpfull. The only thing I didn't care for was one crew member smoked and one passinger always seemed to have a cigerette in her mouth. Have no smoking trips!

1/2 Day Fishing

Fishing was not good; however, the boat was clean and well maintained and the crew was friendly and provided exceptional service. I noticed that the crew provided cheerful guidance to the novices on board.

Blown away by the experience
Mon, Jul 26, 10   2:00 PM mikingglp Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
First, the crew was friendly, conversational, and knowledgable. We left the harbor and they explained the process they would go through to find whales. On three different occasions we ran in to dolphins but the whales. First we saw and followed a blue whale. While waiting for the blue whale to surface a minke whale crossed our bow. After numerous close sitings of the blue whale we headed in only to cross paths with either a large minke whale (or more likley a fin whale). What a day - we may have been lucky that day but the crew added to the experience - I highly recommend it.

Reel Fun Was Not Fun
Sun, Jul 25, 10   12:45 PM gcram399 Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Went out on the Clemente in past years and actually caught a few fish each time. Ther Clemente captain always kept a close eye on the action and even interacted with the passengers. Our captain Dan on the Reel Fun stayed out of sight and not only didn't find any fish, (40 rods x 4 hours = only 5 keepers) I was surprised he could even find the Pacific Ocean. Besides the wasted time the trip cost my wife and I over $120.00 with the non residence 1 day license and all we came home with was a sun burn. To have the boat sit in 1 (very dead) spot for over an hour with no one catching anything or even getting a nibble before moving to try another spot was absolutely rediculous. I felt sorry for his crew (no fish, no tips). One wasted day in my vacation to southern California.

Great crew, good times!
Wed, Jul 21, 10   6:30 AM CathyMash Male 30-39 Local Family With Children
My wife, our 4 kids aged 5 to 12, father-in-law and myself went on the 1/2 day (5 hour) morning trip on a Wednesday. Not too crowded - maybe 20-25 passengers plus the crew on the Sum Fun boat. Very cool guys working the boat - all very helpful with the kids and myself. I could tell they were focused on everyone having as good a time as possible. This was my 3rd or 4th time going out on one of Dana Wharf Sportfishing's boats - always fun!
