Great place to take the kids

I took my 5 year old grandson and couldn't have been happier with the boat and crew. The fishing was slow but the crew was enthusiastic and did their best to put us on a bite.

Fishing was interrupted countless times by the pelicans and cormorants that went after our bait. Not really anyone's fault, but completely wrecked what could have been an enjoyable fishing day. If the captain or anyone can figure out how to get rid of the birds, then this fishing trip would be pleasant, and actually fun!

A fabulous dolphin catamaran trip with Michelle
Tue, Aug 27, 13   4:00 PM virginiabroo Female 70+ Local Other
This was one of the best catamaran dolphin and whale trips yet! It was a perfect day with beautiful weather and being with my very special "dolphin" friends (Michelle A. and about 38 others). Besides connecting with thousands of dolphins, we saw two whales! It was my first time seeing the whales although I've pet them in Baja in the Lagoons. It was sooo exciting! What joy! The crew were superb, as always! They stay in the background and let us do our thing. I appreciate all that they do and feel very blessed that I live so close to Dana Pt. and our wonderful ocean family. Thanks soooo much!

Enjoyable two hour adventure

Dana Wharf whale watching lives up to its name. We spotted a mother and calf blue whale in addition to dolphins. The captain provided interesting background on blue whales including why they can now be spotted off Dana Point. An educational and fun day for the entire family.

Didn't see anything...no whales..no dolphins...nothing. Gave us tickets to come again. Not sure if we will. Don't have that much free time to waste...nice boat ride though.

Too many people on board. No room to fish. Lines kept crossing. Maybe 4 fish were caught and kept. This was just a money maker trip for the charter company. Check the fish reports and go where's there's fish cause you won't be catching any here.

"Coolest day of my life!"
Fri, Aug 23, 13   2:00 PM Swaine777 Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
My 12 year old son and I went on this trip. He has extensively traveled and to this point in his life rated Legoland over the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Thailand, the Olympics and everything else. Mid-trip he declared this "the coolest day of my life!" The captain taught us a lot and we hope to return someday with the rest of our family.

Excellent tour.

We saw plenty of whales. The captain extended the tour to allow us a fantastic final look at a blue whale that just surfaced within 50 yards of the boat on the way back. That was great.

The boat ride was great, unfortunatly due to weaher conditions the sea was rough and we didn't see any whales or dolphins etc. The company gave us back our tickets to use another day.
