This was our third time whale watching. We did not see any whales and not as many dolphin as usual BUT they gave us our ticket back to come another time which I thought was great. Staff was wonderful and the boat ride was worth it too.

WHAT A TIME!! WHAT A TIME!!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Mon, Jul 20, 09   5:00 PM stavonnie Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
ANYONE CONSIDERING THE OCEAN ADVENTURES TOURS FROM MORNING OR EVENING DEPARTATIONS, ARE SPECTACULAR. I JUST WENT ON MY ADVENTURE CRUISE WITH MY FAMILY 7-20-09 AND SAW A BLUE WHALE!! IT WAS DEFINATELY WONDERFUL TO ENJOY ALONG WITH THE FAMILY, WE ALSO SAW MANY OF THE RISSO DOLPHINS AND JUST GORGEOUS PODS OF OTHER DOLPHINS. VERY INFORMATIONAL ALSO, YOU ARE EDUCATED EVERY STEP OF THE WAY WITH THE CAPTAIN IN CHARGE OF SPEAKING, AND A NICE CREW TO SERVE YOU. VERY EXCITING BEING SO CLOSE TO THE SIGHTS OF ACTION OFF THE BOAT, WHICH WAS ALSO BEAUTIFUL I MIGHT ADD. EVERY ONE ON THE BOAT HAD PLENTY OF ROOM TO WATCH AND ENJOY IN THEIR OWN SPACE ON ALL SIDES OF THE BOAT WHETHER YOU CHOOSE WHALE WATCHING, FISHING OR EVENING OCEAN ADVENTURES YOU WILL SURELY ENJOY YOURSELF WITH FAMILY OR ON A ROMANTIC CRUISE, AND EVEN ALONE, WE MET VERY NICE STRANGERS

Good time but be prepared

This was a good time but be prepared -- the rods and reels that you rent (separate fee) are of poor quality and not typical of a deep sea fishing trip in FL. Caught some nice bass and yellow-tail

Great first cruise!

This was a bucket-list for us to have a chance to see whales. I got to see the back and tail of a blue whale, plus a ton of dolphins! I could have watched those for hours. You may want to stay outside on the boat since the captain did not mention what side of the boat to look out on. We lucked out and the whale was on our side.

Beautiful!

The trip was fantastic! We actually didn't see any whales, but saw a huge pod of probably 500 dolphin which was just as good if not better. The dolphin stayed with the boat for ages. We saw them up close and even got splashed as they leapt into the air, showing off for us. There were alot of moms with babies at their sides which was amazing. At one point the dolphin came across a huge school of sardine and began feeding. Suddenly the air and the water were filled with huge majestic Pelicans and squawking seagulls trying to get in on the action. It made me wish I could go out there every single day. The crew were polite although not too attentive. We were surprised to find out after we departed that the blue whale season was long over, which is not what the web site said. It would have been nice to know that. The captain shared some interesting facts about the animals but I wished he had shared more. The crew seemed busy watching a baseball game on t.v. instead. But all in all it was a wonderful day and for the price you can't beat it. For me it beats a cheeseburger and a movie anyday! I will go again... soon!

good day on the water

Friendly, helpful crew made the fishing enjoyable. We caught enough fish for dinner without landing anything very large. It was winter fishing and we were satisfied with the day. Equipment rented was fine and bait supplied did the tick.

Fishing Day Success!!!

The experience we had on our fishing day in Dana Point was awesome!!! The boat was super clean and accomidating! The crew was so great and helpful! Super nice guys! We had the best time fishing for my hubby's birthday! He loved it....guess it didn't hurt that he caught the biggest fish on the boat and won the jackpot!! Everyone from the check-in counter at Dana Wharf to the Captain on the Reel Fun was amazingly friendly and we would love a repeat of this day soon!! Cheers!!!

Great trip!
Thu, Sep 4  2:00 PM stacylambert Female 20-29 Local Couple on a Date
The boat had just come back from the 12 o' clock trip. They saw some marine life on that trip and were going to bring us back to that spot. We got lucky and saw a whole pod of dolphins. Hung around them for a while to see the adults and babies alike jump out of the water and swim alongside our vessel. The highlight of the trip was seeing a blue whale 3 times (about 9 minutes apart) and all with a great tail fluke ending. The trip was wrapped up with some sea lions on a floating buoy.

An amazing adventure.

The boat was clean. The crew was very nice and very knowledgeable. We saw 2 different groups of blue whales, a great white shark, and sea lions. We looked for dolphins, but did not find them. The great white shark was playing with the boat. At one point he came straight at us. It was amazing. I brought my parents (both 74) and they were in awe. Was a wonderful experience for them. My mom's only regret was that my sister was not with us to enjoy the experience. I would highly recommend this adventure as well as this crew to everyone I know.
