I have not gone fishing in ages, took my nephews, son and father (age 80) he and all of us had a ball! The staff was SO helpful and we definitely needed help!! The food was great and we felt that we been doing this for years!! We are already booking for Sept 2009 and it will be a BIGGER family affair!! it was worth every penny! Thanks for a Great Time and Great Fish!! Not a Mad Mom in a Minivan!

fun evening on the water -- while we didnt catch too many fish it was nice and the crew was very pleasant, fun and helpful. Do recommend bringing sweatshirts as it did get chilly but being on the ocean for the sunset was a nice additional benefit.

It was my fist ocean fishing trip with my son. I have been doing these trips for years but it was his first. The boat was at max capacity and this made for difficult conditions. The fishing was a little slow but we managed to haul in a few.

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Tue, Aug 4, 09   5:00 PM JAndreassi Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I booked this adventure fully realizing that guarantees are not possible when it comes to wild nature! The evening cruise was great, weather was perfect! There was plenty of room to watch from any angle and walk about the boat. And then we spotted dolphins! I would have been happy with that but we kept going out with reports of whales just ahead! And we saw! Whales, spouts, birds, dolphin,and seals(or sea lions)! I honestly believe our Captain was more excited with all we saw than some of the passengers. I was amazed with the whole trip.....and would hope that everyone could experience the nature that we did!

I have two kids, 9 and 11...and we ALL had a fantastic time. The captain was knowledgeable and led us to sea lions, dolphins and two blue whales. We'll do it again if we have an opportunity to do so!

Fantastic experience!

My whole family loved the whale/dolphin watching cruise. The marine biologist educated us all before we even left the marina. The whole crew was attentive - I was a little sea sick and one of the crew members came out to check on me twice. If you are prone to motion sickness, take a Dramamine before you go, but whatever you do, don't miss this experience! We saw 2 different blue whale groups (mother and calf) and lots of dolphins. I definitely recommend it for people of all ages.

Great Trip!

We were very happy with our trip. The marine bioligist on board told us that we were very fortunate to have had the Blue Whale calf come so close to the boat. We were able to see 4 blue whales, dolphines and sea lions. The boat was very clean and cheerful crew. We missed our first scheduled time (traffic) and they easily moved us to the afternoon. We were very grateful.

We had an incredible time. We were on a "Disneyland" vacation as a family and this topped the whole vacation. We saw 5 blue whales and many pods of dolphins.

My wife and I went on a three day mini vacation to Laguna for our ten year anniversary. We scheduled the Whale watching for our last day. This two hour trip ended our vacation as it started {Completely Awesome}. We were fortunate to have a great Captain and extremely fortunate to see 4 blues and 2 Fin whales, not to mention the huge school of common Dolphin that were very playful. We spoke with others on board and found out that some had ventured out numerous times but never saw any whales, which is why we considered ourselves extremely fortunate to witness these gigantic mammals. It was the perfect whale watching trip to end a perfect 3 day vacation. Thank you Dana Wharf.

We live in Dana Point, but our friends came down from Colorado to join us. There were 4 adults and 5 children. Everyone had a great time and all the kids caught fish! The crew is very helpful and will do whatever they can to make your fishing trip experience enjoyable.
