The 1/2 day fishing trip is in my opinion is the best way to spend an afternoon. Myself and my group of friends plan on making it a once a week thing if possible. The crew is awesome and the burgers are even better. I will recommend this to all my friends.

It was amazing!

The crew was gracious and knowledgeable. The trip was fantastic. So much better than going to a zoo or aquarium. You get to witness these majestic animals in their natural, wild, and free environment and you get a super cool boat trip too.

Fun 2 hour trip. Saw mostly dolphins
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)
Tue, Apr 2, 13   12:00 PM TonyShloss Male 70+ Local Unspecified
The captain was very good about explaining the activites of both the whales and dolphins. There was a whole school of dolphins that we watched for quite a while. The captain went in circular pathe to create waves so we could see the dolphins dive through them. We only got a glimse of two whales, neither of which were California Greys. One was a fin whale that came up and went down quickly. The other was a humpback that you could only see the fin in the distance. It was an enjoyable trip and worth the price.

The crew were friendly, the weather was beautiful, but we saw no whales, 1 great white shark and, by extending the trip, some porpoises

The first day was very windy and water was choppy. We were given tickets for another cruise. I think this was more than fair!! Second time out was great.

My kids LOVED the trip!

While we didn't get lucky enough to see a whale, we did see more dolphins than we could count, along with quite a few baby dolphins. My kids, ages 9 & 5, were thrilled to see the animals in the wild and can't stop talking about the experience. The staff was friendly and informative. We will definitely return.

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!

great day on the water

The trip itself was great. The crue was fantastic. Could not ask for better. But... The girls at the check in store bad attitudes. Wanted to look at there phones instead of helping customers. It just seemed like we got in there way . One guy was in the store and he helped us out . Found out the hard way about needing a parking permit or you can get your car towed.

Great Way to Spend the Day

Getting tickets, license, rod rental, parking, etc. was quick and easy. Crew was friendly and knowledgable. Boat was clean and stocked with a variety of baits. Fellow anglers were friendly and nice - Not the typical rough crowd that is half-in-the-bag by 7:00 am.

no fish available
Wed, Jul 7, 10   5:30 PM tomschmeltze Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
I was looking forward to going ocean fishing off the california coast, since I have done so many times off the oregon coast. I went on the twilight trip, thinking that would be a good time to go. WRong! we went out for about an hour to what was supposed to be a good spot, nothing there, moved to another spot, 2 fish caught, for the whole boat, 12 fishermen, moved to another spot nothing , moved to another spot 2 more fish caught,.By then it was time to go back in.I was very disappointed, to say the least. When you concider they had boats going out all day, they should have known that the spots we were going to were fished out. needless to say, I will not be going back. If you are going ,be sure to ask when you book if any fish are being caught or not. It's up to you if you want to waste your your money on a boat ride.

Recommended Twilight Fishing Trip

Although the fishing was slow, the crew was very good. They helped us try different combinations to improve our chances. Twilight in the ocean was beautiful, and so was the sunset.

Great crew and a good day on the water

We have gone out about five times before, and this was the best trip we had. Three whale and 1,000+ dolphins plus a Sunfish to boot!
