Although we did not see any whales, we saw dolphins and other marine wildlife. The crew were very courteous and enthusiastic. I would recommend this tour with friends and family.

Great family fishing trip

The crew was helpful. The captain helped my 8 year old fly catch a couple of bass and it made his day. We went home with 9 fish and we all had a great time on the Reel Fun! We had seven people aged 8, 11, 23, 25, 27, 47, and 49.

Smooth ride, great crew
Sun, Jul 3, 11   12:00 PM rohmann Male Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Being from San Diego, we're used to the idea that Southern Cal whale watching was limited to grey whale migration, so were pleasantly surprised to learn of the blue whales off Dana Point in the summer. The price is reasonable for a two hour ride, the crew knowledgable and congenial, and the catamaran fast and smooth. Though whales had been spotted the day before, we didn't encounter any this trip, but did see three species of dolphin and had a great time. Will definitely do this again.

Awesome fun!

This was my first time ever deep-sea fishing, though my husband had gone before. I had a blast! I would have liked the boat to move one more time, since everything that was being caught for the first hour had to be thrown back. Getting up at 3am to make it to the pier was totally worth it. I can't wait to go buy my own reel & rod and do this again! Our deckhand Marcus and the captain (aboard Sum Fun) were awesome and very knowledgeable and helpful. I was finally starting to get the hang of it when we had to sail back in... next time I'm going for a 3/4 day! :)

My wife, my parents, and I chose a Friday evening trip and couldn't have planned a better activity. We were fortunate enough to see and follow a Blue Whale! My parents were visiting from the midwest and this was a once in a lifetime experience that they will never forget. The crew was great and the boat wasn't too crowded- everyone had a chance to move into position to see the whale. We all highly recommend this experience.

Good trip for a fishing experience for the value.
Wed, Jun 29, 11   5:30 PM aaparo Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
What was supposed to be a five hour excursion turned into four hours of choppy waters and people getting sick all over the boat. My son caught a good sized barracuda, and was thrilled. Thought it was a good experience for the money. The Dana Wharf shop made it easy to get fishing equipment and license in one convenient place. Would definitely recommend the trip, and would love to do it again!

Seeing a whale is the icing on the cake!
Tue, Jun 28, 11   5:00 PM sschaney Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We are from the East Coast and simply enjoyed viewing the scenery from the water. The cliffs and the homes were magnificent. The crew was friendly and the boat was perfect for its purpose. Passing the pelicans and having a couple fly along side was cool to witness. Seeing the sealions on the buoy was entertaining as well. Spotting the spray of the blue whale off in the distance was awesome. Getting closer and closer to it was exhilerating. We did not see a Pacific Life commercial, but it was spectacular nonetheless.

I went with my wife and two boys, ages 9 and 12. We found the boat clean, on time and the crew very helpful. we went on a Tuesday afternoon 1/2 priced whale watching tour, but did not see any whales, but were not disappointed. We saw plenty of dolphins which were very cool to experience. They seemed to want to entertain us and did a great job. The boat was out to sea for about 2 hours which seemed to be the right amount of time to spend on the water.
