Boat personnel were great, but the ocean was rough

The weather had been beautiful, up to the day we had scheduled our whale watching tour. A big storm was coming in, and the ocean was very rough. Several in our group got seasick, as did many others on the boat. We did not see any whales or dolphins. But the good news is that we were given a return trip ticket for free, which is good forever (as long as we don't lose it). We have been whale watching before, and had a wonderful time. Just our luck to get bad weather! We do plan to go again. The crew and employees were great, the boat was clean and roomy.

No whales seen on our trip

We did not see any whales on our trip, but we were given vouchers to use on any return trip. We are from Indiana, but plan on going out to California again in the next couple of years. They said that the vouchers were good forever, so we plan to use them later. Seas were pretty choppy that day. Crew seemed helpful. would recommend this to friends

Enjoyed the day!

We went out on a 1/2 day boat for my son's 10th birthday. There were 8 altogehter with two 10 year olds. The day was great. Beautiful weather. The captain announced my son's birthday on the loud speaker and everyone cheered. He got such a kick out of that. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast burrito from the gally was big and tasty! We didnt catch a great deal of fish, but we enjoyed the day very much and would go out with them again. Overall a fun day and a good experience.

This trip was the perfect amount of time - 2 hours. Although we didn't see a whale, it was nice to be out on the ocean on a nice boat on a warm sunny day. We saw lots of dolphins and the captain was very informative about the sea life that we encountered. Overall it was a pleasant day.

overall a nice activity but....

A nice way to spend a couple hours with friends or family but it should be named "Dolphin Watching Tour." I have taken this trip 3 times in the last couple of years (in March) and have yet to see any whales. Although we have not seen any whales, at least we have seen dolphins every time - it was fun to see them. Can't expect to see whales every time but so far it has been 0 for 3.

Glad we did it!

Because of the half price Tuesdays, a friend and I got a group together to enjoy a couole hours on the water. The crew was great! Very interactive with the passengers. If you want to go whale watching, do it! Don't put it off. Have fun!

We had free passes to use later. We will try one more time. I would like to express that all the people in the crew were so nice and friendly.

Meet a whale

It was a great experience to see the whale. It was little far from the boat and I could not see them in big. But there is a rule to be in distance, so it is understandable. It is a disappointment that I did not see even one dolphin this time. I should come back again.

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!

We enjoy our trip with catamaran whale watching. It was my daugther 23 birthday. She even cry of emotion watching the delfins jumping everywhere. My son (18) he had a lot of fun taking pictures and video of the delfins. I really recomend this family trip. It was worth it. I will do it again I love it. Thank You. Otilia Herrera

We left at eight in the morning and were off in the search of a whale. just when i thought we were ready to head back, we got a report of a whale in the area nearby... sure enough we saw one.. and it BREACHED fully out of the water!!!!!!!! landing with a big splash... and it blew out of its blow hole a few times and did a few tale flips for us... it was happy to see us.. =) great, fun time if you get the chance to go.

Worth the cash...

My wife and daughter went on this tour and honestly didn't think they would see a whale, but surprise they did. They also saw dolphins and sea lions the tour was extended because the whale was spotted on the way back in. Nice to see them not being clock watchers! The space and comfort were worth spending the extra money to go on the smaller group boat.
