my 11 y.o. identical twin sons and I had a great time. Loved the Sun. noon kids fishing class prior to 12:45 pm departure. we'll be back . . . .. . hopefully sooner than later. didn't catch any fish to take home (caught & released bonito) but a lot of activity, including a dolphin eating the bait & the catch on the line!

An extremely memorable night. The crew were super friendly and most helpful. My son and I caught fish and just had a great time. I would reccomend all dads to spend some time fishing and bonding with their kid. A night to remember. Cant wait to do it again. - Brian from Irvine

We had so much fun we went twice! We didn't see any whales but we saw so many dolphins it was worth every penny and every second. The crew is so nice too. We will definitely go again!

Unexperienced Captain

They were training a new Captain, but were not in the wheel house to provide proper guidance or instruction. He had problems setting up around the kelp beds...and the experienced Captain was more interested in trying to fishing.

Went out on the 5PM cruise. we went further than the captain normally goes, frantically in search of some whales. Found a blue whale and it was amazing. Crew was knowledgeable, friendly and aimed to make the experience what you wanted.

Disappointed with crew

I've been on many fishing trips out of Dana Point. On this trip, the fishing was good but I was a little disappointed with the crew/deck hands. More than once when I went to get fresh bait there were none in the hand tanks. Once a deck hand told someone not to get any bait out of the bait tank but to get it out of the hand tank. Unfortunately there wasn't any there. One other minor thing - if there was an announcement that the grill was closing I missed it. I would have ordered something. But the fishing was good and I just lost track of the time. Next time I've have to set an alarm or something.

A Fun Experience

My husband and I took our 7 month old with us on the trip whale watching. We had fun! We saw TONS of dolphins, which was incredible. The only few down sides were that we wished we could have seen a whale or two and also my husband had eaten RIGHT before going on the boat and so he felt a little sea sick. :-/ But other than those, it was really neat! Definitely not your standard dinner and a movie date night. We would recommend it!

We were welcomed in a very friendly manner and given clear directions to the loading dock. As people were disembarking we waited and the crew tidied the deck and brought fresh supplies aboard. I was assisted to board and found a cosy corner to enjoy the ride. We were given instructions on safety and where to "feed" the fish if we felt inclined. :o) I was reassured that there were lifejackets available. One of the crew came and talked to my husband and I about whales and even loaned us a book. We were disappointed not to find whale but the abundance of dolphin more than made up for that. My daughter says that was the best part and she will never again visit the area without including a Catamaran Adventure. It was a great time and we were treated royally.

We enjoyed the catamaran trip. Although we did not see any whales, we saw a HUGE school of dolpins. The captain lingered in the area while the school of dolpins jumped, played and surrounded the boat. Very exciting and a great afternoon.

We had sooo much fun!!! Can't wait to do it again. This is my third trip out and my sisters first. She was equally amazed and keeps asking when we can do it again. Our captain was sooo informative and made sure everyone was enjoying themselves. We got to see a few species of dolphins and a blue whale. TRULY PHENOMENAL!!!!

Although we didn't see any whales, we did see dophins, a huge sunfish and sea lions. The boat was clean and the crew very nice and informative. It was a beautiful Southern California day.

Even though we didn't see any whales, the captain was very knowledgeable about where we could find cool animals and interesting facts about all of them. We saw a pod of dolphins, a sunfish and sea lions. One member of our group got sick and they were very helpful. Overall, was a fun experience- one we would quickly do again!
