Beautiful weather, calm sea, full moon, no wind.

It could not have been better with the perfect weather conditions and catching a lot of fish and a crew that was extremely helpfull. We are more than satified with DanaWharf's customer service. I would highly recommend this to eveyone. We'll be back.

Thank you to the crew of the FUN SUM. great job, well done.

Crew was polite, attentive and knowledgeable. Even our twelve year old granddaughter felt welcome and included. Would go again and would recommend to others.

Better value than the movies

So for 5 hours you can be out on the water, eating a burger and having a good time. maybe even catch some fish for dinner. You can even go to the movies for that kind of price.

Fish not biting but a nice morning on the water

The ocean dropped 10-degrees in a week, so the fish weren't biting, but we had a nice day. One crew member, who seemed to be new, was not at all customer oriented. The captain took him aside at the start of the trip, but to no effect... Otherwise a nice time. My 12-year old son can't wait to go again!

Needs adult supervision!!!

Too many "serious" fishermen running around the boat overhead casting - recipe for disaster with no one in charge to stop them. Too many young children running around the boat unsupervised - again, no one in charge to stop them. Finally, I don't care if we are outdoors. Boat should be non-smoking. That includes the crew.

The crew was outstanding. Helpful, courteous and attentive. Even if I hadn't caught a thing, I would recommend this trip to anyone who wishes for a relaxing and enjoyable fishing trip.

Enjoyable day and company did their best to find the fish. Fish just did not bite today.

You are on your own

Lack of seating. The captain didn't rotate positions on the rail so we were stuck at the front of the boat for the entire trip. This was burdensom since the bait was in the back of the boat. This is my chief complaint about Dana Wharf, they don't see to it that the 'meek' get a fair share of fishing near the back of the boat. I've been out of Dana Wharf about 40 times and have only fished the back of the boat 6 times. The captains cater to regulars (intimidators) and don't see to it that "we" all paid money and would like the benefit of being near the bait and expanse of the rear of the boat. Never had that problem when I go to San Diego, it is worth it to me to make the hour drive
