So fun. We can't wait to go again.

I am the mother of a 5 year old boy. My son had never caught a fish before and I hadn't been fishing since I was a child. They crew took excellent care of us and Cameron and Jonathan both took extra time to help my son catch fish. We are excited to go again very soon. I signed my son up to be part of the kid's club as well.

Hoping to eat ocean fish
Fri, Jun 20  5:30 PM ellisfamily Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This was a great time for our family! We enjoyed the boat ride, the staff was very kind and helpful with all of our needs. We were able to catch fish and it was fun for our kids to experience ocean fishing. They were a little disappointed that the fish we caught were not big enough to meet the legal catch and keep size. Overall it was a really great time to experience ocean fishing! Thanks Dana Wharf Sportfishing!

We LOVED it!
Fri, Jun 20  12:00 PM Emerson96 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We had an amazing time. We were not expecting to see whales due to the season but a Minske whale surfaced several times, and he came close to the boat even though tour guide warned us they are kind of shy. We then had tons of dolphins sightings, they were speeding along beside and in front of our boat. So much fun! Clean, on time, knowledgeable guide. Recommended!

Great trip
Wed, Jun 18  12:00 PM patrickmir1 Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Great trip. The kids loved seeing all the dolphins but were a bit disappointed in not seeing any whales. We were told it's not a good time for the whale watching once we were already on the catamaran. I think that disclaimer should be announced before purchase.

A great boat ride!
Mon, Jun 16  2:00 PM Jsicurn46 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Staff were very accommodating and friendly on the phone and in person. We were on the catamaran and it was awesome! We saw plenty on dolphins but no whales;( but understandable, there's no predicting Mother Nature. We will be returning to use them again soon!

Satisfactory excursion.
Sun, Jun 15  12:00 PM dmccoy Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Good seats for viewing on top.....first 45 min. Was a nice boat ride, saw nothing.....then we got into a large school of dolphins.....saw all of the dolphins jumping and swimming next to the boat that you would want to and several picture taking opportunities......no whales to see this trip in mid-June........stopped by a floating buoy on the way back into the harbor full of sleeping sea lions....again, more picture opportunities......nice trip for 2 hours with our grand kids.........a fun time was had by all!

Family Fishing Trip
Wed, Jun 11  10:00 AM markcv Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
What a great day we had fishing with my wife and two daughters (first time for the three of them to go salt water fishing). Great customer service checking in as well as on the boat. The crew was readily available to assist, providing insight and instruction. Will definitely plan to use them again next time we are in So Cal. Thanks!

Timing
Sat, Jun 7  6:30 AM Slujan319 Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
We were on the boat and ready to go at the departure time. We didn't leave for the bait barge until 6:55 and didn't leave the harbor until 7:15. So didn't actually start fishing until 7:35. We have been on these 1/2 day boats for years and usually 5-6 time per year. Not the only time this has happened, but it is convenient, local and my son really enjoys it. Also gets annoying when the deck has fish during the trip in the popular area (stern) and I've had my spot taken by a deck hand. Not a huge deal, but annoying. Overall the deck hands are great. Done some fishing in San Diego which is fun as well, but still a longer drive. Food for thought.

Hard Work turns out great results!

The staff was excellent! Our first two stops didn't go so well. The crew didn't give up though. Our 3rd stop had everyone on the boat catching fish. I had kids with me ranging from 12 - 16 and they all had a great time! In addition, the food was excellent!
