Fish bite at night!
Sat, Apr 19, 14   5:30 PM ANNA92688 Female 20-29 Local Family Without Children
The fish really bite at night! Huge sand bass were caught! I caught two and my mom caught one. I also caught two treefish. Really good eaten. That day there were 20 sand bass caught, some rockfish, and a few calico bass. Check it out and give it a try! Good bites on squid. Fish on this trip or the 3/4 day trip, because the regular 1/2 day trips are not catching anything. Twilight at 5:30pm( this trip) is a good one to go onto. Good luck catching fish, and have fun fishing!

whale watch tour

while we didn't see anything except 1 whale and a calf, on our way back into dock, we were still given whale cards for a free return excursion which was extremely nice and there is no expiration for them which apparently is what they offer and I didn't know that - awesome customer service. Also bought some hoodies from their store. Can't wait to use them!!! Captain was very knowledgeable and told us many facts throughout the cruise.

This ride was well worth it. I would have been satisfied even if I had paid full price. The boat staff was very friendly. The knowledge of the captain was impressive. VERY informative. This would be great for older children who are simply interested in learning more about sea life. The dolphins stole the show!!! It was a wonderful experience! Must do it again soon!

Lots of dolphins!
Tue, Apr 15, 14   10:00 AM GalvanFamily Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This was a fun way to spend our morning. Although no whales were seen on our adventure, we did get to see a large grouping of dolphins up close. And of course sea lions. A little disappointed about no whales but we understand that sometimes that happens. Still it was very fun and do recommend this trip.

Great Whale Watching Tour

The staff was courteous and full of information. Knowledgeable about the sea life around the Dana Point and San Clemente area. We spotted five Gray Whales on the tour and enjoyed the tour very much.

I took my elderly parents out and we had a great experience with dolphins and saw whales. Just the view of the coastline from the water was appreciated by my 90+ year old step-dad from Iowa. Thanks,

A wonderful experience!
Wed, Apr 9, 14   10:00 AM riozwart Female 40-49 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
We were very lucky to cone into a large pod of Dolphins, despite heading out in fog. We were totally surrounded by hundreds of swimming jumping dolphins - truly an experience of a lifetime. The boat was immaculate. Overall great, but I did find the one staff member was rather curt for no reason. He no longer seemed to be enjoying his job. Overall it was more than we hoped for.

This was our second time visiting the Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching. It is a family favorite. We saw lots of whales this trip and lots of dolphins on the last trip. We always enjoy being out on the boat as well. The prices are so reasonable and the schedule is very accommodating. We love this excursion. Thank you!
