We had a great time.

We really enjoyed this trip. My kids had never been on a boat on the Pacific Ocean. We did not see any whales but we did see some sea lions and a lot of dolphins.

Great fun and a good value.

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

Folks need to realize that whales will not be available all the time; they pass through the area at different times depending on the type of whale. We saw none and there hadn't been any recent sightings. We did see many dolphin; some of these played in the wake of the boat and many others were close to the boat. Crew was great and boat was comfortable. Enjoyed the trip. Company gives you ticket for half-off future trip.

Captain found a huge pod of dolphins
Tue, Nov 5, 13   2:00 PM MBrothers50 Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
Boat is very nice and comfortable. Staff is friendly and informative. The captain spent extra time finding the dolphins for us. It was a pod of over 500 dolphins he thought. They jumped and swam all around us. It made the trip.

Hidden costs and disrespectful to women
Thu, Oct 31, 13   10:00 AM Patato Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Got our rods and reels, the shop set them up wrong. Once we got underway the crew informed us we would need to by different weights for 5 each. Bags, cleaning of fish everything was a up charge. The worst part was how they treated my wife, she was standing in line to buy a hat. The man behind the counter kept letting guys from his good ol boy network cut in front of her. My recommendation is to bring lots of cash and leave the ladies at home.

Awesome, highly recommended experience

The captain was very knowledgable about the ocean and marine life. He showed us a few dolphins and then found us a mega pod of dolphins. He gave us info about dolphins and other marine life. He also showed us a group of CA sea lions and told us about them. We had a nice, relaxing time out on the ocean. The crew was also very nice.

Words can not express how pleased we were with this tour! From the accommodations, hospitality, value, the entire package was exceptional. The catamaran was first class, the crew were the best, and the BAR --- well stocked!! :) We saw literally 100's of dolphin, 3 blue whale, and many sea lions. The experience will be remembered for a long time. Next time travel takes us to LA, we will definitely book another tour with Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching. Thank you so much.....The Hughett Family from Cincinnati, Ohio

A great morning on the water!

Fishing was a little slow, but we caught a few. The boat was clean and the bait was great. The crew was very helpful. The captain moved several times to put us on better fishing, but the fish didn't cooperate. 1/2 day was a perfect length...any longer would have been too much. I'd definitely go back again even if the fish didn't bite!
