Whales, whales ~~ everywhere whales!
Wed, Mar 12  12:00 PM JamesPeeler Male 70+ Local Group of Friends
I never saw so many whales in all my life ~~ all at one time. Wow. They were called False Killer Whales and hardly ever seen here at the coastline of Dana Point. Literally hundreds of them.....at least that's what it seemed like. It didn't matter where you looked, there they were, not just one or two, but four, five, eight, ten, swimming together alongside the boat, in front and in back, swimming in unison everywhere! I even saw one "fluke" out of the water. It was fantastic. We had a couple with us from Kitali, Kenya, Africa and they were awe struck. Thank you, Captain Dave.

1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises

We enjoyed the cruise. No whales but lots of fun watching dolphins. Arrived on dock at 0930 but due to lack of a designated line later arriving passengers boarded before us to claim better viewing positions.

The crew did an excellent job to make it possible for us to see a whale in a difficult situation.

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!
