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!

Admiral! There be whales here!

We saw about 3 blue whales over and over again. It was great fun. The captain and crew did as much as they could to ensure we all had the opportunity to see the whales.

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!!

Needs adult supervision!!!
Sat, Jul 30, 11   12:00 PM dwgoward Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
Too many "serious" fishermen running around the boat overhead casting - recipe for disaster with no one in charge to stop them. Too many young children running around the boat unsupervised - again, no one in charge to stop them. Finally, I don't care if we are outdoors. Boat should be non-smoking. That includes the crew.

The best day I'v had in a long time!
Fri, Jul 29, 11   2:00 PM tongaaiko Female 50-59 Local Couple on a Date
We did not really expect to see any whales, but would have been happy to see a few dolphins and have a nice boat trip on the water. We saw so many big blues that we stopped counting! The guides were great, very knowledgable. Best $42.00 ever spent! Do it!

Amazing whale watching adventure. Blue whales, dolphins and the sea lions were easily viewed and enjoyed by those on board the catamaran. Everyone had a good view and watched the sea life in their natural environment. Thanks so much for a great day!

The crew was outstanding. Helpful, courteous and attentive. Even if I hadn't caught a thing, I would recommend this trip to anyone who wishes for a relaxing and enjoyable fishing trip.

You are on your own
Fri, Jul 15, 11   12:00 PM bruce9432 Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
Lack of seating. The captain didn't rotate positions on the rail so we were stuck at the front of the boat for the entire trip. This was burdensom since the bait was in the back of the boat. This is my chief complaint about Dana Wharf, they don't see to it that the 'meek' get a fair share of fishing near the back of the boat. I've been out of Dana Wharf about 40 times and have only fished the back of the boat 6 times. The captains cater to regulars (intimidators) and don't see to it that "we" all paid money and would like the benefit of being near the bait and expanse of the rear of the boat. Never had that problem when I go to San Diego, it is worth it to me to make the hour drive
