Nice trip

We took the 1/2 price whale watching tour from Dana Point. While we didn't any whales, we did see a large pod of dolphins. The captain was very knowledgeable of the local marine life and educated the passengers about dolphins. We took advantage of the galley. It was a good trip.

Fishing is slow, but not too bad.
Sun, Jun 16, 13   6:30 AM ANNA92688 Female 20-29 Local Family Without Children
The crew is always nice and helpful. Fishing has been slow, but if your lucky you can catch some big ones. I caught a decent male sheephead and two small rockfish. My grandfather caught two small rockfish as well and he was so happy. My mother caught a large sargo. The one who got the jackpot was a very small boy with a large white bass. I love fishing, but be aware that even on a boat you might catch nothing. You need luck to catch fish these days. I love to see the sea lions play and we even saw a large mola mola or sunfish too. It swam next to the boat at the surface. You never know what you will see or catch. Good luck to all.

Not value for money
Sat, Jun 15, 13   6:30 AM GILLIAMELS Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
Not value for money, Captain suppose to do rotation to give everybody the same time at the back of the boat where they are chumming, and where all the deckhands focus he decided to let the first group stay an extra hour due to being early! We paid the same price ticket. The captain stayed in one spot the whole 5 hours where we continuously has to struggle with kelp in the way, and 1 hour before the time was over he said it is now to late to move and just stayed put.

Great time with an excellent crew

My 12 year old son and I had a great time on the 1/2 day trip. As we are both beginners , the crew helps us with all the tasks and shows what to do. The galley provided good food and the cabin and top deck seating was comfortable and with a good view. The other people on the boat were all friendly and we all worked as a team. Even though we did not catch any fish we had a great time. I not only would recommend this outfit, but will go out on another 1/2 day trip next time we are at Doheny State Beach and Dana Wharf.

Very Enjoyable

The boat was clean and nice. The boat driver was very knowledgeable. The website wasn't clear that it was in between whale seasons. They did however give our tickets back for another trip because we didn't see any whales or dolphins. I would recommend this company.

Fun evening... my 10 yo loved it!
Sat, Jun 8, 13   5:30 PM rdaganhardt Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
My 10 yo son Grant and I have been talking about going fishing for months and we decided to give this boat a go. Although the fish weren't jumping onto the deck for us, we did manage to catch one. Grant had as much fun baiting the hook with the available calamari as fishing I think. The crew was very friendly and the others on board equally receptive to conversation. Really enjoyed meeting Isaac. Had some interesting stories to share. We will return another day for the day trip to Catalina. Thanks, Rob

Friendly staff, don't go after a swell

We had a great time, but the ocean weather made the fishing a bit difficult. We caught 4 fish too small to keep, and only 2 fish from the whole 20+ group made it into the jackpot. Staff was friendly though, and it just happened to be a bad day to go fishing. Saw dolphins!

Took the kids out whale watching, and everyone enjoyed it. Saw lots of common dolphins, a few sea lions, and 2 whales who were trying to stay hidden. Food and cocktails were reasonably priced.

Tues' trip
Tue, Jun 4, 13   12:00 PM TRISHMO Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Glad we got to see a whale and some common dolphins. Would have been nice to stay longer as it seemed we traveled quite a while and saw nothing and when we did, we had to return to dock.

Really enjoyed the experience and to see whales. It was truly moving and this gave me more respect for sea creatures. We had a wonderful time and I highly recommend the trip.

Took my wife out whale watching as a birthday gift. Just outside harbor water was rough and boat was pitching so it turned into a white knuckle ride of terror for her. We saw no whales although the crew did try hard to find one. They were kind enough to offer us a free rain check which I thought was nice. Prior to booking I will definitely check sightings so as to not waste my time with a long boat ride! Captain said as we were departing that they had not seen any that day nor had anyone else so I knew our trip would be fruitless.
