One Great Day on the Water!
1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises

Excellent experience.We did not see any whales on this trip. We found a pod of several hundred dolphins and it was fantanstic! We spent a good hour with the dolphins as they do like to play by the boat. We also a rare sun fish near the surface. This was worth everything and was a wonderful day on the water. Boat and crew were wonderful.

This was my 2nd whale watching trip with Dana Sportfishing, and for the 2nd time I was not disappointed. We didn't see any whales this time (on my 1st trip we saw a humpback whale - amazing!) but we saw an enormous sunfish & a large pod of hundreds of dolphins. The Dana Sportfishing crew definitely knows how to find ocean life for passengers to enjoy. The catamaran was clean & not crowded with plenty of sitting & viewing room for all on board. I completely recommend this trip & will definitely be going again myself.

We spent an hour in the center of a pod of 300 or so Common Dolphins and let me tell you there was nothing "Common" about the experience. What a spectacular and refreshing 2 hours! I'm considering doing this at least once a month :)

The crew was very helpful from putting the bait on to cleaning the shark that was caught. They were always doing something to help.

Better planning

It took over an hour to get to a fishing hole. We traveled down the coast and came back up the coast before we droped anchor. The crew was chumming only the back part of the boat.

A wonderful day with the Very Best Boat and Crew
Catamaran Adventure Cruises

Ive been whale watching for years with my young children, in Dana Point and Monterey California and the Catamaran along with her Crew was the VERY BEST we have ever experienced.. Although the Whales did not show on our trip, weve never experienced a better day on the water. The boat is very stable ,quiet and truely low emmission in regards to her engines. It makes for a pleasent day regardless of the show. It was our first time on the Catamaran and I will choose no other Boat again for Whale Watching or Coastal Cruise, " Its simply the Best boat and crew " Thanks For A Great Day and Wonderful Memories with My 3 Children, Michael S,

Great Family activity- enjoying our beautiful ocean, and being away from cell phones and TV! Fun to teach the kids how to fish. We caught 2 and had them for dinner!

A bit disorganized and unprofessional
Sat, Jun 18, 11   10:00 AM lucerosmith Male 30-39 Local Group of Friends
I will say that the fishing trip was nice. everyone in our group caught fish. The scheduling of the trip was a bit disorganized. Confirmed a 6:30 am trip then via email (no call) was told the trip was rescheduled to 10 am. No refund if that time didn't work out for us. One person in our group however maintained a 6:30 am departure time. When I called they said that they didn't have a 6:30 am boat but then one came up just not big enough for everyone in the group (3 people total). They rescheduled the last guy from the 6:30 am spot to the 10 am spot with the rest of us. When we arrived they told us that our one friend had been moved from the 6:30 am (saturday) spot to to 10 am spot on the previous Monday and he missed it. Finally got it all cleared up and we were able to go on the trip together. Kind of a headache... CONFIRM you departure day and time... at least twice!!!

Fairly good fishing
Thu, Jun 16, 11   5:30 PM BruceHawk Male 50-59 Local Unspecified
Fishing was good on our twilight trip, it would have been lots better with anchovies for bait, we had 90 % large sardines. And the 13 inch Calico bass in general were not large enough to swallow a large sardine. The Crew on the Clementine was good and very helpful. The bass readily went after the few chovies we had.

No individual attention for first-time fishermen
Thu, Jun 16, 11   5:30 PM casaflora Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
I took my son for his 18th birthday. We caught absolutely nothing, had little help or assistance in anything from selecting a pole to baiting our lines. It was a nice experience to be out on the boat together I suppose, but if that's what we had wanted to do we should have done a regular harbor cruise, not a fishing charter. We were both very disappointed.

This was great. The family and I had much fun. The staff was very helpful. We got tangled a couple of times and they were "johnny on the spot" to fix and take off the fish. Highly recommend this group for any family.
