Father & Son Day Trip
Mon, Aug 13, 12   10:00 AM bradbecker Male 60-69 Local Family With Children
My son (15) and I took a 1/2 trip on the Reel Fun Boat. We had a blast! The entire crew was extremely helpful. If you're a novice at fishing (like us) be sure to grab this boat. The captain kept us moving to find the fish, the cheeseburgers were hot and delicious and the beer/coke were ice cold, not to mention reasonably priced. Ir you're looking for a great way to spend a little quality time with your son or daughter, go out with these guys.

worthless adventure

this is the third time we have used this organization and the third time it has been a waste of money and time. They stay close enough to shore I could swim and couldn't find a fish if it jumped in the boat. We will never use this company again.

Great Experience, Very Enjoyable
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Fri, Aug 10, 12   10:00 AM c81050 Female 60-69 Local Group of Friends
It was very nice. We saw lots of dolphins and at the very end of the outward trip, 2 blue whales. We only saw the backs of them and their water spouts, not all the way up out of the water, but it was still good. The captain actually stayed out a few minutes longer waiting for them to resurface so that we could see them. This was much appreciated. Boat was clean and comfortable. The only bad thing was when the skipper played music loud (he said his boss made him). It was much nicer when he turned it way down and even off.

A very disappointing experience!

It was impossible to enjoy the fishing while constantly trying to avoid the many pelicans surrounding the boat trying to steal our bait or take our fish. They were there for the entire trip. We spent most of our time dodging the pelicans or getting our lines untangled from the birds or from each other. Also the younger members of the crew were either surly or too inexperienced. Most of the fish were caught by experienced locals who new how to cast far, dodge the birds or untangle their lines quickly.

Great first trip for Grandson.
Thu, Aug 2, 12   10:00 AM tunabob Male 60-69 Local Family With Children
This was the first ocean fishing trip for my 9 yr. old Grandson and he was boiling over with excitement by the time we arrived at the warf. I had decided to book the 1/2 day boat since it was his first time, just to get a feel as to how he would handle this type of fishing among a group of people. He landed one of, if not, the first calico bass that day as well as a couple others. The crew was very helpful, polite and one crewmember gave my Grandson cuddos for his fishing skills, which made him feel pretty good. Fishing was a little slow that day but our Captain kept us on the kelp where the boat still managed to land over 50 bass and a few other species as well.That turned out to be more than the full day and 3/4 day boats combined. It was a fun day on the water and I don't believe we had even left the boat before my Grandson asked when our next trip was.

Were those blobs in the distance whales?

Although the tour guides were very enthusiastic about sighting two whales, my husband and I could barely see anything. That was the case although we had the best vantage point at the bow of the boat.. Other passengers had the same problem. They tried to take pictures of the whales spouting but the images were so small they looked like dots or were totally invisible.

Enjoyed seeing the whales very much.

My family was very pleased with the Whale Watching tour. The staff and captain were very nice and knowledgable about the whales and other sealife. We had a great time. Would recommend it to anyone who enjoys being on the water and learning about whales, dolphins and other sea creatures.

A great time on the ocean
Fri, Jul 27, 12   2:00 PM tepearson Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
This was a great activity for families with kids. Seeing the blue whale was the highlight, and we watched it surface, swim, and dive several times. The one suggestion would be to have the driver not always direct the boat directly 'at' the whale - those of us who were not able to crowd up to the front of the boat had to look around and between everyone up front. Luckily the whale came up on the side of the boat once, allowing us a better look. Crew was pleasant and helpful.

Need more fishing time.
Wed, Jul 25, 12   6:30 AM ErnieMarquez Male 60-69 Local Family With Children
It was a great day but on a 1/2day trip, we spent way to much time traveling instead of fishing. We were in front of the Ritz Carlton catching a few when the Captn decided we would move to near the Pier in San Clemente, then back closer to the DP entrance.

More whale sightings than Alaska
Fri, Jul 20, 12   4:00 PM DavisFamily Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
Just returned from Alaska cruise and saw more and bigger whales than on all our trip including very expensive cruise excursions. Great boat and crew. Great value and lots of fun.

AWESOME! WOULD DO IT AGAIN IN A HEARTBEAT!

We went on the catamaran on July 16 at 2:00. We were with our 8 year old grandson who is from Arizona. We saw several pairs of Blue Whales, we saw a Fin Whale and a large school of dolphins. It was spectacular! The crew did a great job explaining everything to us, including the large red spot in the water aka whale poop! It was so interesting! Our grandson had a ball too!

Whale watching.
Fri, Jul 13, 12   12:00 PM RichardMarx Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We appreciated the efforts by the crew to find the whales especially when it looked like we wouldn't see any that day. The crew went further on the excursion than they normally would. Also, the guide gave lots of information on the ocean life we saw. Thanks for a great trip.
