This was very light but pleasant activity. You board a small boat ad they go back and forth in Dana Point harbor, so its not like you are going in the middle of the ocean, but it was very mellow and just enough for meeting with friends or for a couple. You sit there, drink wine, have snacks. They offer 4 tastes of wine, which are pretty generous, I can drink good amounts of wine but I only had 3, 4th would have been too much, and my girlfriends too, so there is enough wine being offered. A selection is pretty good. It did not feel like some cheep wine for $3 out of convenience store. Overall I am happy we did that, something else to do, it was nice and relaxing.

Enjoyed the boat ride, the scenic views, and the Common Dolphin Pods we got to enjoy. Seas were little choppy but make for some great video and photos.

Nice tour from Dana Point with beautiful views of the coast line. Really neat to see the pods of dolphins. Boat was simple with ample seating and crew was nice.

My son is 14 and he loves to fish.
This summer he was able to attend both weeks of the kids fishing camp. He/we were beyond stoked with the experience. He caught tons of fish that we were able to enjoy as a family, our neighbors enjoyed some as well( everyone loves fresh fish right)
Beyond the camp he has also gone out on several 1/2 day and 3/4 day trips with friends and they always have an awesome time.
The staff always very helpful & professional.
Thank you Dana Wharf Sportfishing for making Lukes summer 2016 memorable.
