Would do it again!

We took the catamaran boat for our whate watching experience. It was awesome! Weather was cold but clear, water was calm, boat was comfortable and offered both indoor and outdoor seating and/or standing. We saw whales on 4 different occasions during the 2 hour trip, however, they were very elusive, and did not like the boats approaching, so they stayed very quiet and did not exhale in a way that would allow us to see the big spray from their blowhole. Instead, they would come up to the surface, quietly exhale, then go back down again -- so, you only got to see a small part of the top of them, and just for a quick second or two. It was still really neat to observe. The dolphins were incredible though! There were hundreds of them, and they loved to play in the wakes of the boat. They were so much fun to watch! We also got to check out the seals on our way back to the dock. All in all, it was a great experience, and I would definitly do it again! :)

Good for the off season.
Sat, Feb 14, 09   12:00 PM Bob_Parr Male 40-49 Local Group of Friends
I had to remind myself it was the off season, not a lot of fish were caught. The water was cold and it was the day after a rain storm. However, the crew was friendly and helpful, the boat wasn't crowded and it was a beautiful day, so why complain. I would suggest the crew place the bait knife out of the reach of children as 4 kids that had been "dumped" by mom were playing with everything in sight.

Great Bargain

We had a large group on a limited budget, so we wouldn't have been able to consider the trip without this special Tuesday discount pricing. We saw several whales and a family of dophins swam alongside the boat, but we would have been satisfied even with just the boat ride, which was refreshing and fun. Thanks Dana Wharf, and please consider more specials for locals like us!

Pretty nice boat trip
Tue, Jan 20, 09   12:00 PM marydahl Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We enjoyed the boat ride but saw only a few dolphins and no whale. As we took the whale watching and were wanting to see whales, of course we were disappointed. We did this trip 5 or 6 years ago and although we again did not see whales, we ran into a large group of dolphins jumping up and running along side he boat for almost a 1/2 hour.

Interesting Experience
Tue, Jan 6, 09   10:00 AM captainjosh Male Under 20 Local Group of Friends
All in all, an interesting experience. For me, it was my first time fishing, so it was exciting to learn how to fish and to catch my first fish. Fishing was in general a bit slow, but that was probably due to factors beyond the crew's control, such as the season, the reality of over-fishing, and the necessary relative proximity to shore. The crew was generally quite helpful, assisting customers in taking in and preparing their caught fish and informing customers about the various fish they caught. It was also good to know that they used radar to detect schools of fish so as to enhance the chances that we could catch some. One note: if you happen to catch any mackerel, which is fairly likely since they are quite a common fish, they will most likely tel you that it is a no-good fish. However, there are plenty of recipes online of how best to cook mackerel and I must say, it is actually a very tasty fish, and fairly healthy as well! High in Protein and Omega 3 fatty acids. So keep any mackerel you may catch!

Well managed logistics

The process was professional and the crew very competent While on the excursion, was told that this "really isn't the time to look for whales, that comes in a month or two" by a local who regularly liked to take the trip to study dolphins, or so he said. If that is true, I think it would be better for the company to highlight that fact.

Did not see any whales

I had the feeling that we were not looking very hard to find whales. It seems that the captain was happy to show us dolphins, we were not.

Great weather for boating

We showed up 30 minutes early and sat on the wharf after trading our voucher for tickets. Right on time, the crew showed and started loading. We saw many small whales and dolphins and met several interesting people. The cost of refreshments was surprisingly low and the crew was very informative. We got back as the sun was going down and the temperature dropped, but not to where I needed my jacket. The whale excursion made for a great start to a fantastic vacation.

Sum Fun

It was ok for taking friends that have never been deep sea fishing. However, the Captain kept moving around and picking "not so great areas" I felt we moved around too much wasting valuable fishing time.
