There are other choices. Woody's Sport Center was a way better experience. Another choice I'd Dolphin Dock. You can't trust these guys to keep your trip booked or book your trip correctly. They screwed up both times.

We had a great time. the deckhands were great. They hung out with our smaller kids and helped the older ones reel in some big fish. The captain came down and helped the deckhands and even went fishing with us.

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.

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...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!
