Great time dining at the various places along this wonderful stretch of water. Was fun watching the boats and ships come and go as we had our meals.

We took the Jetty boat on a dolphin tour. It was during the week, so we had the boat almost to ourselves. 6 of us and 2 others. They allowed my 10 year old son assist with driving the boat. He thought it was the coolest.

Our first trip was great except I discovered that I become violently ill once we hit the choppier waves. I caught the first fish before I lost my breakfast. I then alternated catching fish and leaning over the opposite railing with a new deckhand who also did not know he would get seasick. Believe it or not, overall we had... More

Granted, it was a cold rainy day - but the person at the desk who took our fare nor the person who captained the ferry nor his assistant were in the least bit friendly or welcoming. We felt like they didn't like their job much.

I have been going out with Fishermans wharf for the past 10 years at least once a year. I have tried other places but nothing competes. The staff here is rough and truly authentic fishermen. The snack bar and drinks are reasonably priced as they have you trapped in the middle of the ocean. You can't bring booze or food... More

Went on the cruise to see dolphins. We were not disappointed. Captain was great and ran the tour with only the 4 of us. He had a great sense of humour and you could tell he enjoyed his work!

We've come here for the ferry to San Jose Island, and gone on a couple of Dolphin Watch trips. The folks here are friendly and professional, you know you're in good hands. Our skipper found dolphins the others missed, and got plenty close to them!

This was a great trip. Left at 7:00 am and came back at 11:10 am. The trip was very enjoyable. Already left a review for San Jose Island. Jetty Boat trip was very quick and efficient.

We had a great morning trip. Left at 10 back by 1230 for lunch. Captain had a cute little dog. Some people brought bikes over. Some had fishing stuff. Lots of crabs on beach. Dolphins jumping and turtles. Just right trip for us.
