Good Time-Great Deal-2 kids free-good food-grumpy
Sat, Sep 26, 09   6:30 AM steveietheb Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
My two sons age 11/12 and I decided to go fishing on the 1/2 day boat. It was a special deal -one paid adult-2 free kids. Hey,you can't beat that deal. The fishing bite was slow but the captain (boat SUMFUN)worked hard trying to find a good bite spot. The majority of the crew was polite,professional and helpful except for one deck hand who was short tempered and rude. I didnt get his name(m/white 20's heavy set 6'0 ruddish skin/ green t-shirt) but he was a grumpy @#$%. He must have had a hangover and should have stayed in bed. The boys had a breakfast sandwich and each boy caught a small fish. The boys had a great time and wanted to stay longer hoping to catch "moby dick".It was an enjoyable 1/2 day and I would go again minus the grump. Also I would like to see the rotation of the standing fishing spots on the boat done with more frequency unless were all catching our limit.

The day was beautiful, and the trip to watch whales was perfect. The captain offered very informative and detail narration about the whales, making the trip that much more enjoyable.

Fun and informative

My wife and I were visiting her sister in Orange Co. and she suggested this activity as something new to do while there. While we had seen whales in Hawaii , it was from a distance(hiway overlook), so it was pretty cool being close and on the water with them this time.There were 4 whales total sighted and followed. It's also always fun to have dolphins playing along side the boat. I would recommend for anyone who can handle a few large swells on occasion while on the water.

Somewhat Disappointing
Thu, Jul 3, 14   2:00 PM Steve7 Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We didn't see any whales, which isn't the sole reason for the disappointment (I understand that there has to be luck involved). What I was really disappointed about was the the crew provided no commentary throughout the two hour cruise, except for some comments regarding the sighting of several dolphins towards the end of the excursion. It would have been nice if the crew provided some information on whales in general and perhaps some stories on prior sightings, etc. They all looked bored with their jobs.

Dana Wharf rocks
Sun, Sep 28, 08   12:00 PM steve6847 Male 40-49 Local Couple on a Date
Dana Wharf Sportfishing is a great landing for fishing. It's easy to get to, close parking, no long walks on the dock when you are carrying your gear and a great staff. Every person in the shop and on the boat was friendly and helpful. The boat captain worked hard to put us on the fish. I've never had a fishing trip go this smoothly. We completely enjoyed our trip and will be back again real soon.

Did not see any Whales or Dolphins. Still good to get on boat. They did give a voucher for future boat trip.

Always a joy.....

I've been on this tour before and had a great time. The first time we saw no whales, in fact you can't count on seeing whales. Often you do see them, but not always. This time we saw a gray whale and a huge pod of dolphins. It was magical. No matter what sea life you are fortunate enough to see, this is a great experience and a wonderful way to get another perspective on the area.

Just didn't see any whales! Saw dolphins.
Sun, Dec 28, 08   12:00 PM StephenPetro Male 60-69 Local Family Without Children
The organization and process of ticketing, boarding, and disembarking was great. The crew was nice and they tried hard to find some whales in the two hour cruise. We spotted some riso dolphins near the end of the cruise and got up close for some good pictures of them. The ship was clean and comfortable. They did give us a $5 discount on fishing or whale watching later on.

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sat, Jun 25, 11   5:00 PM stephansen Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
The weather was great and the tour was nice, but my son really wanted to see whales. We saw lots of dolphins and they chased the boat and were jumping which was very neat, but no whales. We saw the sea lions for a brief min. They all sat on a marker and we pasted them on the way back to shore. I'm not sure if they would have given us a voucher for not seeing whales, but they didn't offer it up, and at the end we were kind of rushed off the boat. It was fun but you probably could find a cheaper dolphin tour

Great Time

We went out on the 12 pm boat and we had a blast.....the fish werent biting much but the crew did a great job and we all had fun. They tried several different spots to find fish but unfortunately it was a bit too windy so the fish were not easy to come by. Despite the lack of fish we had a great time out on the boat and I would definately do it again.

What's not to like about being out on the water on a beautiful day. Take the time to talk with the crew. They were so friendly and informative. Although we didn't see any whales, we did run into hundreds of dolphins and watched them for about an hour.
