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: for $29, you get a half-day fishing trip, which includes rod rental, tackle, and breakfast or lunch at Dana Wharf Sportfishing in Dana Point (up to a $60.50 value). A fishing license is required for everyone 16 and older and can be purchased here.

Amateur anglers and seasoned fishermen and fisherwomen can embark on a five-hour voyage to plunder the ocean depths for its many briny treasures with the aid of Dana Wharf’s expert crew and skippers. During the half-day excursion (up to a $39 value), clam diggers catch different fish depending on the time of year; the current season is busy reeling in sand bass, calico bass, sculpin, and halibut, which can all be filleted by the crew for an extra fee and taken home to be cooked and added to stomach aquariums. The sportfishing trip includes the rental rod and reel ($12), tackle ($2), and $7.50 towards a hot meal in the boat's full-service galley, where beer and soda are 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.


Dana Wharf Sportfishing was an Editors’ Pick on 10 Best. Yelpers give Dana Wharf an average of four stars.

  • Dana Wharf is the central location for a wealth of ocean-related activities, and visitors often find themselves drawn there when they want to experience local marine life. – 10 Best
  • The boat crew members were all very attentive and helpful, always a step away from helping fishers untangle fishing lines, reel in their catch, etc. – Vicki T., Yelp

About Dana Wharf Sportfishing & Whale Watching

Dana Wharf Whale Watching's expert crews and skippers glide their watercrafts on the open seas to soak up sunshine while searching for rare and endangered whales as they migrate south to avoid tax season. Expert captains steer crafts through frothy spumes and narrate each trip, educating passengers on the abundant life beneath the glassy waters. Guests can treat their eyes to breathtaking views of the scenic Orange County coastline and the beautiful Pacific ocean while surveying the seascape for natural wildlife. Voyagers can either venture into the boat's full-service galley for a hot meal or bring their own food and nonalcoholic drinks to stave off hunger and resist eating the ocean's jagged, hamburger-shape coral.
