My nephew and I took the half day boat and it was great! The crew was so nice and helpful. No matter what you needed they were right there with it. Great food and fishing!

Disappointing

We took this trip on a Wednesday, so there were not as many people on the boat as usual (I'm told.) The crew was friendly, but could have been more helpful, especially with my 80 year old father-in-law. While I can't blame the captain or the crew for the lack of (everyone's) success, it would have been helpful to set the expectation when we inquired about the trip before the purchase. (Crew said it has been slow all season and the fish have been too small to keep.) All this said, the crew did make us feel welcome.

We went out on the 6:30 am trip. To our surprise, this trip had 5 professional deep sea fishing instructors from "Owner" hooks. They gave two fishing classes on board as we got underway. When we were on the fishing beds, these Guys gave awesome advise, tips, and tricks everything, bait size, baiting techniques, casting, even reeling in the "big one"!!!

My son quickly picked it up, even for a first timer, he caught a barracuda and bass. He is asking to go out again. Staff was patient and supportive - overall great day out at sea.

We went out on a Sunday morning on a full boat. The deck crew were very helpful with advice and service in general.

Twilight fishing was a treat!

Twilight fishing was a enjoyable experience for my family. Weather was perfect, sunset was great, and watching the dolphins and coastline was impressive. Fishing was not that hot but we had a great time anyway!

the captain was very nice and interacted with all of us customers, but the deckhand Justin was not so nice, was not happy, I noticed when customers needed help Justin would help as if he was mad unhook their fish turn and walk back to his buddies and talk about how stupid some customer are!! When Justin unhooked customers fish he dropped it back in the ocean and walk away with out explaining why to the customers and kids .SAD ! when you take your family out and spend 245.00 dollars you expect some friendly help and understanding. w my family and I like Dana wharf but will try to avoid y boat with the deck hand JUSTIN aboard. thank you the Paredes family.

the boat was full and no place to stand and fish, the current made all the robs and fish rods to interfere tons of wasted time, was bad fishing experience, close to the shore and no good preparation for that kind of crowed
