Took visiting German friends on whale watching

I have always enjoyed your tours, but this time I took some visiting German friends who had a 14 and 16-year old children and we saw 4 whales and numerous dolphins. It was a grand tour and we got some great pictures!

Spending a Delightful Day with Grandchildren
Fri, Oct 12, 12   10:00 AM JamesBrawner Male 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
During our family visit together in San Clemente, my two grandchildren, ages 14 & 17, spent a delightful day aboard the Clemente, fishing for Calico Bass, Sheepshead, and Halibut. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, catching several fish and being comfortably well-treated by the Capitain and First Mate of the Clemente. The boat was well-equipped and well-handled so as to enhance our trip. I would recommend this outing to anyone who enjoys the outdoors and spending quality time with family.

My friends and I were VERY disappointed. We fished just off the beach from our condo and I have done better fishing in the small ponds where I live. We really should have been informed of just how bad the fishing was before we purchased tickets. Also noted that they kept very small fish in order to make days count look good. No fish over 18 inches were caught for anyone on our boat. NOT WORTH THE MONEY.

1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises
Tue, Jun 8, 10   10:00 AM jambini06 Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We had a WONDERFUL time on our cruise. We did not see any whales, but that seems to be common for that time of the year. But our captain did all he could to find something, even going back out a ways to find some dolphins and they were the highlight!! They actually swam with us, right under the boat. I got some fantastic pictures and it was the time of a lifetime. We were comfortable on the boat and all five of us had a wonderful time!! My oldest got a little seasick and they came and checked on him at least three times! Also, they have a great lunch deal - ask for the hot dog. We had a fantastic trip and would do it again in a heartbeat. Plus, you can't beat the price!! LOVED IT!!!

mostly bass, but too small to keep. some more skilled folks caught bigger ones with lures. also caught some barracuda which are fun to catch.

too many people
Thu, Jul 15, 10   10:00 AM jaksiemash Male 60-69 Local Family With Children
they had over 50 people on the boat, there was not enough room to fish, the lines were constantly tangleing, shoulders bumping, waiting for bait, etc they also catered to the people who they knew, at the expense of the people who, just wanted to have a good time with their families.

Nonstop sightings five minutes in!

Took a one and a half yr old... She loved it. We loved it! Bring your own food and its the most perfect setting for a crazy picnic. Drinks at the bar seemed a little weak for the price... So skip those n enjoy the sights!

Amazing, wonderful things to see.
Tue, Sep 13, 11   5:00 PM JAJacobs4JC Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
It was my wife and I on our honeymoon. We had a blast. Saw everything they said we would see. Technology and communication with other ships to make that happen I'm sure. No matter though, I don't like to take chances so I don't see why they should either. The one thing that did disapoint was at the end of our trip my wife and I were very cold so we went down to get coffee but they had already poured it out. He didn't offer to make more and we weren't even in port yet. I would have expected better costomer service in that regard. Other than that......,. Perfect!

The trip was excellent and was also interesting to learn some new facts about the animals that were seen. I also liked the fact that you were able to buy drinks and food aboard as well. Very enjoyable for me and my husband. A definite must if visiting Dana Point

A Must Do in California
Tue, Mar 17, 09   10:00 AM jahuff Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We went on the 2 hour Whale tour on March the 17th at 10:00 A.M. The boat ( Dana Pride) was neat and clean (ship shape, so to speak), smooth running and not over crowded. The capitan did a great job narrating. We actually found a couple of whales courting. Didn't really get to see to much of the whales. They don't get up and out of the water for pictures but we did find an awesome pod of about 1,000 dolphins and they were posing for pictures with their kids. The weather was great but a light jacket was needed. Great view of the shore. There was a small galley and the boat coffee was great. The dock area was neat and clean and sprinkled with shops.The trip was well worth the price.

Out of the office-gone fishing
Thu, Aug 6, 09   10:00 AM jagonzalez Male 50-59 Local Group of Friends
Using Zerve to book our fishing trip was easy and convenient. Location and parking was easily accessible. Received great service at check-in. The "Boat Crew" provided outstanding service. Cold beer and awesome cheese burgers, sun shining and catching fish, what more can a guy ask for?!

The crew was helpful and fun. The weather didn't cooperate, but the captain made up for it. We caught two rockfish and a crab! Overall great time for a great price.
