Nice cruise

The two hour whale and dolphin tour was on time and the captain and one man crew were very efficient and kept everyone up to date on what was out there. Unfortunately there were no whale sightings that day on any outing. We did come across 2 large pods of porpoise. We had some very good film of them. I will do this again in the winter and hopefully have better success in seeing whales.

My wife and I took this trip and really enjoyed it. It was not the time of year for whales but the crew was determined to find a pod of dolphins and did. We had a wonderful 30 minutes or so making passes through the fairly large group of dolphins.

The crew was friendly, explained things to us and kept us informed as we went out looking. I'd go again juts for the wonderful afternoon on the water.

The crew was nice. We saw lots of dolphins but no whales. We got a coupon for 50% off to sail with them again. We will definitely take the tour again.

Did not see any whales but plenty of dolphins, if staying at the Dana Point Marriot, it's a five minute walk to the Dana Point Wharf, highly recommend that you go there, plenty of restaurants and must eat at RJ Cafe

Good experience and the staff was very professional...but the areas we went to were very overfished, and though we caught some fish, we actually faired better simply fishing from the pier

Full boat, good half day trip

Pluses: Efficient crew, plenty of fish. adequate space, fair pricing.

The rental gear was fine and there was plenty of parking.

Minuses: Guys who got on the boat first dominated the stern and there was no rotation to move anglers around the boat.

Two teenagers who dominated the stern also appeared to be employees of some sort. They had access to the captain's space and helped clean the boat on the way in. If they were employees, they should not have competed with the paying customers for fishing space.

Loved our tour! The captain was very informative and seemed just as excited as we were to see a blue whale. Would definitely do this again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our sunset whale watching cruise. The ship was comfortable and well maintained. The captain was extremely knowledgeable about whales and it added a tremendous amount of depth of understanding to the experience. A great vacation experience and value!

The Twilight Fishing Trip at Dana Wharf Sportfishing was exactly what we expected as first time sportfisherpeople. We had fun, saw some beautiful scenery and even caught some fish! The Captain of the boat did a great job finding a rewarding place to fish and the crew was extremely helpful! Thanks for the great experience!

Twilight fishing was a enjoyable experience for my family. Weather was perfect, sunset was great, and watching the dolphins and coastline was impressive. Fishing was not that hot but we had a great time anyway!

We went on the sunset cruise and would totally recommend it. The value was right and the evening weather was perfect.
