Slow Fishing and Crowded
Sun, Apr 18, 10   12:45 PM rynousa Male 30-39 Local Family Without Children
Fishing was slow and lots of people on the boat. Too many kids. Parents just let their kids run wild. I have done this trip many times in the past with great success, but this time was probably the worst.

Fun Fishing but overcrowded boat
Sun, Aug 3, 08   12:00 PM rynousa Male 30-39 Local Family Without Children
The fishing was pretty good and the staff was great but there were just too many people on the but. I have taken this trip two other times with not nearly as many people and it was much better.

Twilight fishing was a treat!
Sat, Jul 26, 14   5:30 PM Ryanthomas Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
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!

Fun for the family
Wed, Aug 29, 12   2:00 PM ryanoakes Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I would highly recommend this trip. We had 3 kids (7,5,3), who thoroughly enjoyed watching the dolphins, whales, and sea lions (NOT seals). The youngest 2 got pretty tired and fell asleep for the last 30 minutes. The guides were great and entertaining. They have restrooms on the boat, as well as drinks, chips, and hot dogs / grilled cheese if you are hungry.

Fun fishing at Dana Wharf!
Thu, Mar 5  10:00 AM ryancowan Male 40-49 Local Individual
I always have a fun time fishing on any of the Dana Wharf fishing boats. All of the crews and captains are excellent. The cook on this specific boat (Clemente) made me one of the best breakfast Burritos I have hade anywhere.

Trip was good and everyone on the boat crew was helpful. Will recommend to all. Should give military discounts.

Great Trip / No Whales
Tue, Feb 14, 12   4:00 PM rwarri01 Male 30-39 Local Couple on a Date
This is the 4th time on the same whale watching ship and I have still yet to see even one whale. It seems a bit pricey for those odds. Also, we were freezing cold even with gloves and jackets and hats on. The crew was great and you can't beat the scenery, but we want to see whales!

1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)
Tue, Mar 27, 12   12:00 PM RuthAnnS Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The Dana Pride was a nice boat with informative narrative. Some of the family ate from snack bar and said it was very good. We did not see much sea life on our day but the cruise was fun anyway.

Fun time on Dana Wharf whale watch
Mon, Dec 21, 09   12:00 PM RuthAnnS Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We were hoping to see grey whales but were just a little too early yet. Did see a blue, several sharks, several playful sea lions, and lots of dolphins that played around the boat and rode the bow. The captain's information as we went along was very interesting. We all had a great time and would do it again.

Captian was Fantastic
Sun, Feb 17, 13   10:00 AM ruthacohen Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
We came upon some breaching whales (which does not happen off california coast) and the captian stopped the boat for a long while to watch them play. We were on our way back to dock and should not have stopped. Instead he stopped and used up excess fuel to get back to dock quicker.

Great activity except for an equipment malfunction
Sun, Sep 21, 14   5:00 PM rustymalone Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
About an hour into the boat ride my wife was sitting on a raised portion of the boat was sliding off to touch the deck...she is 5' so her legs were a couple of inches from touching the deck. As she slid off a piece of the ship that was tied to this "box area" came loose and she went with it onto the deck, bruised and pretty shaken up. A deck hand came over and secured the portion that came loose and asked her if she was OK, she said I think so. I was with her at this point. We went down in the galley to purchase a drink and told the bartender what had happened and he was pretty excited to go fix it but as soon as we told him it had been secured he lost interest,,,didn't even ask if she was ok. No customer service or concerns to the right persons I guess.

thanks for the memories
Sun, Mar 29, 09   6:30 AM RussWills Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I booked the trip knowing that fishing would be questionable. Your web site held true and that was OK. My son's had never been on the ocean fishing and it was worth the looks on there face's. We will be back....

Thanks
