very friendly, knowledgeable, and productive staff. Captain found fish -- everyone caught. My group of 4 caught enough keepers to provide a full dinner for 6 adults.

Good value, smart crew.

I have a great time every time I take the half day trip. Next time I am thinking about springing for the 3/4 day jaunt. The captain found the fish, I caught them, and the crew cleaned them. What more could you ask for from a fishing trip?

Too short?

I recently took a 1/2 day fishing trip which was advertised for 5 hours. The boat left the dock around 12:45 PM and approximately 30 minutes later we made our first stop and began fishing. After several stops and a slow day fishing, the captain announced at around 4:35, that we would call it a day and started heading in. We arrived back at the dock before 5:00PM. Since there was still plenty of daylight left when we began to head home, and it was still light when we arrived, I wish we could have fished a bit more and kept closer to the 5 hour schedule that was advertised. On separate note, the crew was great and very helpful. A fishing clinic for the kids before we headed out was a nice bonus.

Better fishing off the jetty!

I fish down at Dana Point jetty all the time and catch a lot more. I only caught one fish the whole time, as did my friends. For the money, it wasn't worth it.

The boat captain was professional, courteous, knowledgable, and dedicated. We did find a whale to look at and that was exciting for someone who has never seen one before. The boat ride alone was a great way to pass the time. So even if we hadn't found a whale, the ride was nice. The price was not out of line. My wife and my son had a good time too. My wife did have one complaint. According to the trip description, brownies were supposed to have been handed out but we didn't get any.

Perfect night out for the Guys
Sat, Oct 24, 09   5:30 PM jacobdv Male 40-49 Local Group of Friends
We were 12 guys that booked the twilight fishing trip on October 24, 2009. The fish did not bite the way we wanted to, but the season was almost over. Some guys did catch quite a few. The jackpot went to the guy who caught a 2.5 pounder. The evening was really great. Great friends. Great weather. Great crew on Reel Fun. Brian did a fantastic job to untangle al the bird nests. Dan cooked great burgers and kept the beers cold. The captain stopped at three different places where he could see fish on the fish finder. Before we knew it, the 4 hours were over and we were back at the harbor. We would probably do a longer trip next time. But then again, it is always good to stop eating when you still want a little bit more. The 1/2 day is good for people that do not do too good on the ocean. We loved it. Will definately do it again. Will be great for older kids too - maybe when they are about 10.

This is one of the worst experiences that I had. The customer service received at this place was by far one of the most horrid situations. I got passed from person to person and each time had to retell a story and then got accused and blamed myself for a mistake on their end that they refused to acknowledge. The sad part is that I had proof in my hands, had an extensive call record with details, but there was still a lack of wanting to even look at this. Bringing a group of eager students from a university, this was an exciting trip and we had to buy tickets ahead of time. Because of mistakes on the company's end, we are now out several hundred dollars and they still refuse to acknowledge their mistake and work with us. Now I'm in the process of trying to work through legal means to get our money back and try to move on from one of the worst situations of customer service and organization that I have ever seen!!!

The cruise was everything we had hoped for, except someone forgot to tell the whales of our rondavue point., HA! Never the less, it was very enjoyable, & relaxing. We intend to book another cruise on our next trip.
