It was loads of great fun. Learned a lot about marine wildlife too. Very informative guide. Worth the ticket price. We plan to do it again. Seeing the dolphins, and the Blue whale out at sea was simply breath taking, and the catamaran ride out on the point of the bow was an adrenaline rush for me!

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.

A tradition every time we are in Southern CA

My son and I have had the tradition of taking a fishing trip with Dana Pt Sportfishing ever since he was a little boy and he is now 24! We enjoyed yet another trip this year in spite of not catching any fish this time. The boat burgers are the highlights of the day!

Since we're from out of state, we wanted to make sure that we saw some whales on our only whale watching tour. After looking at reviews on the net, we decided to make the drive from San Pedro to Dana Point - the tour said you would see whales, guaranteed. They were not making an empty boast! The captain and crew went out of their way to point out the pods of dolphins and spent quite a bit of time with them to the delight of everyone on board, then told us that the whales were frequently seen in the dolphins proximity. Soon after that we spotted not one but two blue whales spouting in the distance and set a course for them. He gave a great talk about how they show their fluke and dive deep, staying down for about nine minutes. Sure enough, they came up in different areas and we saw both of them - they remained in the area of the boat and came up a few times for us. Other tour boats must know that this tour finds the whales because they seemed to congregate around us. A great time was had by all!

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.

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.

Fishing off Dana Point Sucks
Wed, Jul 11, 12   6:30 AM shankbro Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Id NEVER do that again. We stayed so close to the shore, that we couldn't get away from the pelicans, seals and dolphin. Needless to say, the only thing caught were the pelicans. It was quite sad too see all theses birds with hooks and lures stuck in their little pea brained heads. From now on, it's only full day boat fishing trips for me!
