The Battle with the Pelicans
Fri, Aug 5, 11   12:00 PM JoeGrayston Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
Good fun with my son. I didn't expect to have so much trouble with the birds staged next to the boat ready to take your bait, along with your hook as soon as you try to put it in the water. The deck hands were good at pulling the birds, mostly pelicans, up and removing the hook. The crew was helpful and the beer cold.

Better value than the movies

So for 5 hours you can be out on the water, eating a burger and having a good time. maybe even catch some fish for dinner. You can even go to the movies for that kind of price.

Fish not biting but a nice morning on the water
Wed, Aug 3, 11   6:30 AM lennoxes Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
The ocean dropped 10-degrees in a week, so the fish weren't biting, but we had a nice day. One crew member, who seemed to be new, was not at all customer oriented. The captain took him aside at the start of the trip, but to no effect... Otherwise a nice time. My 12-year old son can't wait to go again!

Very fun trip!
Tue, Aug 2, 11   5:00 PM Snikonchuk Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
I took my two boys, who are 10 and 3, and my parents on the whale watching trip. The crew was very knowledgeable and nice. We should have been on the boat for 2 hours but it turned into 2 and a half hours because we kept seeing more whales! The captain didn't want us to miss one! The boat was clean and nice. There wasn't a lot of seating of course but if you feel you need to sit for the entire ride I would suggest getting in line about a half hour before your boat is to leave.

We took the family, 3 adult children and our 6 year-old grandson, on the Whale Watching trip out of Dana Point and all of us were thrilled with the experience. The crew was great and, best of all, we saw 3 whales and lots of dolphins. One of the highlights of our vacation!!

A wonderful time and lots of Whales
1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises
Tue, Aug 2, 11   12:00 PM BevGrandia Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
I've lived in the Inland Empire all of my life and I've never been Whale Watching. I took my grown daughter and her three sons (my grandsons), ages 3 1/2 months to 14 years. We all had a blast. We all learned a lot about the Whales from the Captain and his helper. The boys didn't know if they would like it or not, they didn't, they loved it. The day we went out was a bit windy and the boat was rocking some. The baby has never felt his stomach feel that way and was laughing so much I had to take a video of it. The Captain went out of his way to find Whales, Dolphins and Sea Lions for all of us. He wanted to make sure we had a memorial time and we did. Everyone from check in to leaving was wonderful. I wasn't sure how the staff would react to an infant and a stroller, but they couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Thank You All. B.Grandia

More smoke than bites.
Sun, Jul 31, 11   5:30 PM michaelseitz Male 60-69 Local Family With Children
I generally do not get seasick, but a constant gail of cigarette and cigar smoke took care of that. With a crowd of people in pretty tight quarters, there should be no smoking allowed. I think it will be a long time before I go out again.

Great Crew, Bad Weather Day, Lots of Fish and Fun
Sun, Jul 31, 11   12:45 PM marilyno Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
If you are grandparents along for ride with the grandkids be aware there is no comfortable seat on the boat "Reel Fun" and you are sitting in the sun for 4 hours and hopefully not bad sea conditions. Make sure you bring along your dramamine just in case. Kids had a ball when a large wave came over the front of the boat and they got soaked. For me it was too long, too nauseaus, too hot, and stinky between the poor sardines as bait , squid, frying hamburgers, and no where comfortable to sit. Not good for bad back. Everyone was catching fish and they enjoyed that. Sea was not calm due to storm in the morning and rain.

Must do!
Sun, Jul 31, 11   12:00 PM mnichols1976 Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We went out as a family our last full day in California to try and see the whales. It was my wife and my 8 year old daughter. We had been out there for 11 days and seeing the majestic blue whales was the highlight of our entire vacation. I cannot recommend highly enough taking the time and spending the money to see those animals. The boat itself was very stable, and the Captain and the crewman both were very helpful and knowledgable. We got the pleasure of seeing 3 blue whales, and a group of dolphins. It was a fantastic experience.

Incredible experience to see blue whales! Weather wasn't perfect but who cares. Great idea for out of state visitors - beats the heck out of a drive to Los Angeles.
