Boat was clean, comfortable.

Boat staff were very pleasant, friendly and very informed!!! They were great to spend the afternoon with.

We really enjoyed the trip.

My group consisted of my husband and I, our 21 year old son and our 28 year old niece.

This was a fun way to spend an afternoon and next time we are in California I would like to do this again or try the sportsfishing.

The one thing that I do think could have been better would be the staff at the ticket counter. They oould have been friendlier.

The staff on the boat were very friendly and helpful. When my fishing pole broke, one of the crew let me use his.

My family had a great time.

My husband and myself try to go ocean fishing atleast one time a month. Our favorite boat is Sum Fun. We usually catch some fish and the captain and crew is great. Very polite and knowledgeable. I would recommend Dana Wharf Fishing to anyone.

We didn't see whales on this trip but we saw a pod of dolphins that were very entertaining. I got a lot of good photos. The weather was perfect but DO follow the recommendations to wear several layers of clothing. It was cold enough to need two jackets and a hood but we were in our tee shirts later that day. Also, consider taking Dramamine before you go. The up and down of the boat is just enough to make you a little queasy.

We spent two wonderful hours on the beautiful coast of Dana Point! We watched whales on their migration, and saw many dolphins playing and jumping next to our boat. Highly recommend this tour!

We law lots of dolphins and one humpback whale, but we saw her 4 times. The crew is very knowledgeable and knows where to go to find the animals. They shared lots of good information during the trip. Nice boat as well.

Finding a humpback whale

It was a great day on my 51st birthday! Rough waters, but the crew came through finding a humpback whale at the end of the trip. It was awesome right next to the boat. Thanks for a great day!

Making this excursion by boat made for a different experience. We saw several whales from a distance and were able to approach closely enough to see them blow and dive. Really topnotch adventure.

Luck and Preparation

We were lucky to see blue whales at very close range. The catamaran was easily manueuvered into range; the ocean was exceptionally clear (and apparently tasty, judging by the number of whales feeding in the area). The catamaran was not crowded, so we could see from every angle. The naturalist was helpful, but I did not like the rock music playing onboard throughout the visit.

Well, it was a nice boat ride - and narration. Got pretty close to seals and saw dolphins. The captain persisted in looking for whales, but we never saw any - but I liked the fact that he tried.
