What You'll Get
Herbert Hoover won America's hearts and votes when he promised a college-educated chicken in every pot and a fishing boat in every garage. Get a taste of the American dream with today's Groupon to Dana Wharf Sportfishing & Whale Watching in Dana Point. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get a five-hour fishing trip (up to a $44 value) and a voucher for $7.50 worth of food on the boat (up to a $51.50 total value).
- For $33, you get a nine-hour deep-sea fishing trip (up to a $59 value) and a voucher for $7.50 worth of food on the boat (up to a $66.50 total value).
Plunder the ocean depths for its many briny treasures while soaking up temperate sunshine and beautiful coastal views with Dana Wharf Sportsfishing & Whale Watching's expert crew and skippers. During the five-hour half-day excursion, seafarers can catch different maritime martyrs depending on the time of year. Currently fishermen busy themselves reeling in sand bass, calico bass, and halibut, all of which can be filleted by the crew for an extra fee and taken home to cook and add to stomach aquariums. The three-quarters-day trip lasts nine hours and bestows boaters with catches such as barracuda, tuna, and yellowtail. Rent a rod and reel ($12) or trap some tackle ($3–$10) without the hassle of felling a bamboo tree and grubbing for iridescent worms.
Voyagers can fight back hunger with a $7.50 food voucher toward a hot meal in the boat's full-service galley, where soda is also available. While pursuing their fishy prizes, tour-goers can treat their eyes to breathtaking views of the scenic Orange County coastline and beautiful Pacific Ocean. Depending on the season, voyagers may see whales, dolphins, sea lions, and other tuna imposters while on the trip.
During the entire month of June, Dana Wharf Sportsfishing & Whale Watching is running special online pricing for twilight half-day trips at a better value than today's deal. However, this Groupon remains the best deal available for early afternoon half-day trips (excluding Tuesdays) in June and for trips scheduled after the month of June.
The state requires a fishing license for everyone 16 and older, and it can be purchased here. The $7.50 food voucher is not valid toward alcoholic beverages, tackle, rod rental, or fish cleaning.

About Dana Wharf Sportfishing & Whale Watching
