Customer service via Telephone is the Worst!!!!!!

I recently bought tickets and have been trying to book a date for my son and I and the people on the phone have been very rude! This is my first time wanting to go on a fishing trip for my son's birthday and last Saturday was the day we wanted to go and I called a week in advance and was told nothing was available. I was put on a waiting list and to this date have not received a call back. I personally have not been there, have not met the crew, but over the phone was the worst experience ever. I will loose my tickets and book elsewhere because of that simple fact. UPSET MOTHER!!!!

First of all, I want to say.....I'M A GIRL!!! But I LOVED THIS TRIP! I was the only girl on the boat and everybody included me which made me feel comfortable.I had a blast! Yes, your going to get a little wet and will probably smell like a fish when your done but it was so much fun!!! The crew was amazing! They have many years of experience. We went for Valentine's Day, we were trying to think outside of the box and do something exciting and it was! I did extensive research for a couple weeks on different fishing companies, and chose DANA WHARF. From the moment we checked in until we left we were extremely satisfied. Their customer service is superior! We left a big fat tip simply because they earned it! Can't wait to go back!

We had a fantastic time on the 1/2 day morning trip. It was my boyfriend's first time ocean fishing and together we caught 13 fish. Our crew (Pika Jordan and Mike) were helpful and attentive. Jordan gave us incredible service; he helped us set up our rods, was right there to help with a fish or lost hook, and has a great attitude.

I'd go again and recommend this trip!

Crew was stellar and always ready when we needed help. We saw a whale, dolphins, sea lions. Fished at three spots...last stop was the best. Friendly guests...we ended up taking home 8 donated fish! Great time

Best Sport Fishing Outfitter Around!

We were very pleased with the staff on board our fishing boat -- they were efficient, helpful, and friendly. We would have liked to have gone out into deeper waters but the weather did not cooperate and unfortunately my husband and daughter both became seasick. We spoke with a few of the weekly regulars who said this was the best outfit in the area and after the service we received we would have to agree. I had a wonderful time and my daughter enjoyed feeding the seagulls, pelicans, cormorants, and loons with the leftover bait as we sailed back into the harbor!

Fun trip but the fish were not cooperating this day. It's to be expected that some days it just isn't happening.

I was a little skeptical to book a trip on the pacific coast on a bigger boat with 20+ other strangers. Past experiences on other large fishing boats have been very disappointing. After talking to some locals, they assured me this was different and they were so right! The price was extremely reasonable, the captain & mates very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and everyone caught fish! I highly recommend fishing with them and if I get back to the Orange County area, I will certainly book again!

These guys did an excellent job helping my 8 year old daughter and me. Both of us were first timers. They let us know how to fish each spot and helped us get the bait on and checked on us and gave us useful tips! Couldn't be more pleased!!!
