Awesome Time

I bought the fishing trip for an early fathers day present for my husband. He and my sons went out as a father son day, and they couldn't have been more excited about it. They had an amazing time, and the deck hands made sure my youngest one got to reel in at least 1 fish before the days end. It was an amazing time had by all, and we are definitely going to make this more of a routine thing.

Excellent but...

I had a fantastic time except the drunk guys that charged 20 beers to my number and stole my grill cheese sandwich. The staff was very professional and handled the situation. Maybe have people show their numbers to charge? Also they tried to put their fish in our bag, so I have no idea what their malfunction was... Thank you to your staff for taking good care of us and making me another grilled cheese!

Great bites!

The fish really bite! It is amazing to bring up the bait and see large bites on it. The sardines are great to have as bait. No fish were kept by my mother and I, but we did have a good time. Have fun fishing and catching! This type of fishing is fun even when no keepers are caught!

Farther Out to Sea

I had a great time cuz I won the jackpot, but my three kids and my friend ONLY caught mackerel. I'm sure you hear this from everyone, but too many people on boat. Also if we could have gone straight out farther instead of parallel to the shore I think we would have gotten more than mackerel and a handful of small bass. We were on a half day trip and the crew as usual were extremely nice and helpful. I'm sure my opinion doesn't really count, but we go out at least once a season and it's always the same, not much caught from the entire boat! Little tiny fish and very few.

These guys have a passion for fishing! They go above and beyond so you catch fish. The food was good too! An extra bonus!

Customer service via Telephone is the Worst!!!!!!
Sat, Mar 7  12:00 PM pekenia2629 Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
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!!!!

I am already planning the next trip!

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!

Great trip, great crew, great fun
Sat, Jan 31  6:30 AM lils22 Female 20-29 Local Couple on a Date
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!
