Squid kinda slow now
Thu, Feb 4, 10   5:30 PM jutila Male 50-59 Local Individual
The squid were not biting as hard as other years. I like the $25 price for the squid only boats. No screwing around with other fish. Just go get the squid and come home. I'll try again if the squid are still around.

Went on the Twilight Giant Squid Fishing Trip aboard the Dana Pride. Wide open on the giant squids. The crew did a spectacular job assisting us with getting the squids onto the boat. Very friendly, hepful and efficient. I will definitley go back on this boat!

Fun day at sea even without whales
Sat, Jan 9, 10   10:00 AM morans71 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
We had a beautiful warm and sunny day to sail. Even though we did not see any whales we did see dolphins and sea lions. Staff was pleasant & knowledgable. Comfortable boat. One woman had a 3 year old and I wouldn't recommend for that young age group - she spent the time running around the boat after him! He didn't have the patience to keep looking out for the whales!

The day of the Dolphins!
Sun, Dec 20, 09   12:00 PM Lindash Female 40-49 Local Individual
The day was overcast and the ocean was calm and glassy when we took off from Dana Point on our Whale watching adventure on 12/20/09. I took the 12:00 to 2:00 tour and we headed north looking for Gray Whales, but it's a little early in their migration season and we didn't come across any whales or even any Dolphins. I was given a Whale check and figured I would stay on for the 2:00 to 4:00 tour because as we were comming into the harbor they had spotted Dolphin activity in the distance. As we headed out on the 2:00 to 4:00 tour we saw some In-Shore Bottlenose Dophins right away. Then we headed out further to a pod of Pacific White-Sided Dolphins that were very playful and would bow ride. They were very lovely with distinct dark gray and white markings. We continued on and saw a large pod of Risso's Dolphins and also some Off-Shore Bottlenose Dolphins. Apparently all were feeding on Giant Squid in the ocean. Everywhere you looked there were Dolphins. What a contrast to my earlier tour where we didn't see a thing. The captain said that yesterday they were in the direction we had headed this morning, but had moved South. I was very glad I had stayed on for the 2nd tour and was able to witness all the Dolphin activity. You never know what to expect in our vast ocean, it's either filled with life or empty and that can be all in the same day.

Wonderful Dolphins
Fri, Dec 4, 09   12:00 PM marskier Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
I loved seeing all the dolphins - saw 3 types. We had an excellent showing of the Risso dolphins per our captain. It was great. I may rebook a trip next week, if the grey whales have started to show up.

Good value, smart crew.
Sat, Nov 14, 09   6:30 AM ShawnJones Male 40-49 Unspecified Individual
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?

GREAT whale watching experience!
Mon, Oct 19, 09   1:00 PM MelanieBolen Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
I can't even say how amazing it was to see those beautiful creatures so close! From what I understand, we had a VERY good day... as we saw about 5 blue whales and a pod of dolphins... truly amazing! The guides/captains were really great and showed us all an unforgetable experience!

The whale watching cruise was fantastic. We not only saw blue whales, but we also saw dolphins, shark, and a pilot whale. Ride was smooth. Had a great time!

Wouldn't ever book again!
Tue, Sep 1, 09   12:00 PM Whosamesa Male 30-39 Local Individual
Boat was packed yet the crew managed to fish right along side with the paying customers!!! NOT GOOD!!! PEOPLE ARE RUDE, one lady even got hit on the head by another person on board. I'd seriously re-think booking this one! Honestly I'd like to say something good...even the fishing wasn't that great. Not too many ppl caught anything legal size...maybe just a hand full of ppl...oh wait that was the crewmen. My bad.
