Actual fishing

This experience of fishing has created excitement in my kids to go for fishing.

My 9 yr old daughter caught 10 and my son 6 yrs old caught 5 - half the time he was crying :-)

The best part is the location. No worries of looking for the fish the captain takes us to a place where there is fish and we catch -simple and easy. The crew is very helpful and full of energy. They are there whenever you need them.

I have already recommended it to my friends and we will certainly go again.

JUST GREAT!

We went on the valentines day sunset whale watching cruise. It was my husband and I and then my mom and dad. It was the BEST time! We saw 1 whale and hundreds of dolphins. The crew was very nice and friendly. We are already trying to plan our next trip. This is definately worth every penny!

This was our first time whalewatching with Dana Wharf. It was a smaller boat than on previous trips and that was a plus. The boat was clean, the crew was friendly and informative. We didn't have to go to far out before we began to follow a whale. On the return trip we spotted 4-5 more. We all had a good time.

Excellant adventure

The whole family had a good time on this trip. We had two 4 yr olds so we were a bit worried about how they would do and it all went fine. I think however that about 90 min into the 2 hr trip both girls started to feel some motion sickness. We had brought crackers and juice with us along with other snacks and that seemed to settle their stomachs. We saw two whales and a huge school of dolphins as well as some sea lions. Boat personnel were very nice and it all went well.

There are tables and benchs on top of the boat so if you want that, get in line early to get first dibs. Also if you want a good spot at the front of the boat.

Set your camera on telephoto and sports speed.

No whales nor dolphins
Sun, Mar 14, 10   3:00 PM poupette1 Female 30-39 Local Couple on a Date
We saw no whales nor dolphins. We found out there were 5 whales but it was to far to go there. Dolphins garanteed, it was not the case. It is life, we did not get lucky that day. I know they are wild animals and understand that we cannot admire them all the time. It is not your fault. We got 2 ticktes to get back another day, which we will do soon for sure. I hope to see them ! I am crossing my fingers.

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!

Safe & reliable

We had a good standard experience with Dana Wharf San Clemente. Crew looked professional enough and knowledgeable although it seemed that they are doing the job by the book and obvious lack of enthusiasm and excitement or any encouraging were easy to sense. They had more their energy focused on selling food and drinks. Boat was half full and no extra happy ordinary mood had been practiced by the crew in order to make a nice weather day fabulous. Perhaps we will go next time with them, as far as location and price but we will be more self independent this time. Boat cleaning had been performed while heading back to the dock and this was totally inconvenient and uncomfortable for the passengers. They should clean their boat afterwards or adopt a better system. Generally I would say Staff were not an issue, lack of quality management made them to be like that.
