No whales seen but tried hard

the captain did his best to find us a whale but no luck this day. He did put us in several dolphin pods with many baby dolphins to watch. Sunfish, anchovies, sunshine and good smooth ride still made it a good day to be on the water. and they made a good grilled cheese sandwich too!

Great boat ride. Crew made an effort to make the trip enjoyable eventhough we didn't see any whales. They went out of the way to stay with a large pod of dolphins eventhough we got back late. Wonderful time on the water! Would go again.

Mostly I just love being out on the water. This particular day we were lucky enough to see hundreds of dolphins. The crew is great at providing info and commentary. Enjoyed it immensely.

Too many people on the boat - otherwise good trip

Unfortunately my family did not have a great time. While I love to fish, I decided to bring my husband and 2 older teenagers to let them experience this as well. It was their first time, unfortunately, it's probably their last time. There were so many people on the boat, that lines continually got tangled in your "neighbors" line. The crew was nice, the captain was nice and he kept moving the boat in hopes that we would catch something. Some people caught keepers, red snapper, sheephead, etc. Next time I plan to take a trip with fewer people, therefore allowing me to actually cast my line instead of just dropping from the side of the boat.

I would highly recommend the Catamaran Adventure Cruise. The crew were friendly, courteous and very informative. We didn't get to see any Blue Whales, but the two huge pods of dolphins more than made up for it. Awesome trip!

With my husband being out of town... I decided to take my sons on a fishing trip. Last minute of course! We had an amazing experience from the time of booking the reservation to returning our polls at the end of the day. This was so much fun! What a memorable and great moment we will share forever! I would really like to thank the deck hands!! They were awesome! They helped us in everyway possible to make this a fun and worthwile experience. Thanks again!

though we didn't see any whales, we saw lots of dolphins and got a return voucher to come back again and try and see the whales again. It had a nice snack bar, plenty of food and drink, and my favorite, a bathroom. The weather cleared up once we got into the ocean and it was a fun trip. Can't wait to go back

My husband and myself try to go ocean fishing atleast one time a month. Our favorite boat is Sum Fun. We usually catch some fish and the captain and crew is great. Very polite and knowledgeable. I would recommend Dana Wharf Fishing to anyone.

My husband & I had never been on a whale watch excursion before. It was a lot of fun & we were able to see a blue whale & schools of dolphins.

No Whales, but great show of Dolphins

I really wanted to see a blue whale. The captain and crew certainly did try to find one for viewing. However, it was not the morning for us to see one. Dolphins, dolphins and more dolpnins played along side our boat. It was great. There were a lot of mothers with their babies. I started to try to take a lot of pictures and then just quit so I could enjoy the fabulous experience. We also saw several sunfish and California sea lions. It was a wonderful trip on a very clean boat with a super crew. I would recommend doing this morning trip to everyone who has the opportunity to be at Dana Point.

A great activity for my 13 year old grandson
Sun, Aug 29, 10   2:00 PM nhguthrie Female 70+ Local Family With Children
When looking for this type of activity for my grandson, I went to the internet to chose the cruise that I thought would work for us. Had we not seen dolphins and a blue whale, I thought it very good customer relations that those of us onboard would receive a "rain check". The crew was very efficient, personable and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this activity.
