No fish

First, I could not buy a ticket with my PC because, as always, the display indicated that the trip was sold out. How ever, I had no trouble using my IPhone to get tickets.

Parking was difficult.

The trip and crew were friendly and helpful, but they could 't find fish that would bite.

My daughter had a great time.

I was not told that the 4 ticket i bought for the trip with my wife, son and his girlfriend were going to be on a boat that was designed for kids. If you go out of Dana Point do NOT go on a Sunday unless you want to spend your trip fixing your lines that will be crossed the whole trip. Felt i should have been informed before i went! BTW, Captain did not find the fish!

Fun and exciting trip...

Although we didn't catch anything, my son (10 years) had a good time on the boat. He hooked a nice barracuda but lost it during the retrieve. The deck hands were a lot of help for everyone, and the hamburgers are to die for. I recommend Dana Wharf Sport fishing to everyone, especially those with children.

Bad Weather - Bad Experience
Sat, Jun 23, 12   5:30 PM bgsync Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
The weather for the trip became unpleasant, in particular the winds and high swells. Caused significant swaying of the boat, even to the point where the water level came up to the side of the deck on several occasions as the boat swayed from side to side. The crew tried several locations, but were unsuccessful in making he experience more pleasant. While I don't expect to catch fish, I would hope the Dana Warf would use its judgement in possible postposing or rescheduling trips when it is certain to be a bad experience for its customers.

Captain went out of his way to ensure the boat occupants were able to view whales. Spent additional time out to sea to explain type of whales as well as type of dolphins we saw

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

OUR DANA WHARF CAPTAIN'S EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE MADE OUR TRIP INCREDIBLE! I DEFINITELY WILL RECOMMEND YOUR COMPANY TO FRIENDS. I REALLY APPRECIATED ALL THE INFORMATION SHARED WITH US ABOUT BLUE WHALES, THEIR BEHAVIOR AND THEIR RECENT FOOD SEARCH PATTERNS. (AND, OUR TEENAGERS WERE DELIGHTED TO LEARN THAT THEY ARE AMONG THE 1% OF THE WORLD'S POPULATION TO VIEW A BLUE WHALE.)

THANKS FOR THE GREAT TRIP! JACKIE GEITH

The captain and his son and crew were phenomenal. Very educational and entertaining. Never a dull moment. He knew just where to find the whales...and we were lucky enough to see the blue whale come up at least five times...plus saw many, many dolphins. This is my second whale watching trip and I would go again and again and highly recommend it to everyone !

Wonderful time on the dolphin cruise. Obviously the captain knew where to go to locate whales and dolphins. We sighted many and and it was a thrill. Very professional, on time, and a lovely boat. Thanks.

They are the best tour boat co I ever went with

This company is so awesome. If you don't see dolphins or whales they will give you a free pass for another trip. But out of 10 excursions, this only happened once. They are the best!

I thought it was fun, the captain was very knowledgeable. Unfortunately we did not get to see anything other than dolphins. I would definitely recommend the trip, hopefully you will have better luck finding some whales.
