Dana Wharf Sportfishing is celebrating Father's Day by offering a couple of seaworthy options Sunday aboard the 95-foot Dana Pride.

First up are free half-day passes, for a future trip, to all fathers taking the half-day sportfishing venture from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. aboard the landing's flagship vessel.

"My father started Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whalewatching in 1971, so this is our way of honoring fathers who love fishing," said general manager Donna Kalez.

The special Father’s Day fishing trip will be targeting sand bass and calico bass. There have also been reported sightings of both blue and fin whales, adding a bit more to enjoy along with the day of saltwater angling.

For those looking for something a bit more leisurely, the Dana Pride will be going out for a special Father's Day sunset dinner cruise from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Offering a buffet barbecue dinner, non-alcoholic drinks and live classic rock, this two-hour cruise features indoor and upper deck seating plus a full cash bar, and will take in the views of Laguna Beach from the ocean. The cost is $59 for adults; $29 for children ages 3 to 12; and free for children 2 and younger.

Advance reservations for either or both trips are recommended and can be made via the Dana Wharf website or by calling (949) 496-5794.
