Great experience! Saw several whales!
Tue, Jul 17, 12   12:00 PM ksccslay Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Went with my wife and two kids on the 2-hour whale-watching cruise in mid-July. The boat took us on a very smooth ride about 5 - 6 miles out into the ocean. We saw several blue whales and two humpback whales. Also saw a couple of pods of dolphins and some sea lions. Seeing the whales was spectacular and well worth the money on half-price Tuesday, but would have been worth it if we had paid full price! If we are ever back in that area, we will definitely do it again. For me, this was the highlight of our vacation! I highly recommend this activity to anybody, especially families!

A Friday Evening to Remember
Fri, Jul 13, 12   5:30 PM davidhward Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We (4of us) booked a twilight fishing trip on a friday evening. It was expected to go a little further out of the harbor, but we went only about a mile from shore. The captain took us to three different locations with very little success. It was interesting to find out that the few fish being caught were much smaller. So the bait we were using should have been much smaller. We didn't find that out until the last spot we dropped our lines. There was 57 people on the boat with 4 crew members including the captain. There was only going to be 44 but a few more were allowed on the boat. It was a little crowded but to be expected... so lines got tangled about half the time. Then because we were fishing so close to shore it was a little more difficult keeping your bait on the hook and from being eaten by the birds. I ended up catching a pelican. It flew off with my hook & bait then broke my line . I would probably go on a full day trip instead next time if you're more interested in catching something besides a bird and smaller fish. Otherwise, it was a relaxing three hour tour close to shore with very well used rented rod & reel. I would not rent them again. If you are a more serious fishermen then bring your own gear. But it was fun and the ocean was calmer close to shore.

Whale watching.

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.

They tried
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Thu, Jul 12, 12   5:00 PM smikkas Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We were disappointed as we did not see anything. It was cool and rainy and the crew did their best to find signs of life. Turned into a two hour boat ride only. The company offered everyone another free ride within a year as long as we kept our ticket and called prior to coming to the dock to make sure they were not full. This was a very nice gesture as we did not expect it. We knew going in that this type of venture is a risk. The crew was friendly and everything ran on time. Although disappointed that we did not see anything, I feel the company did a great job trying to rectify that. It was a nice surprise. It was our last day so it did us no good. I would have been more upset had I paid full price.

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!

Great Cruse

Wish the crew would provide more information as to what they were doing. I just saw them smoking in the wheelhouse for the last hour of the trip. Would not say that we are looking for dolphins or whales after the first hour and encounter.

Dana Wharf crews rock!
Fri, Jul 6, 12   10:00 AM smarin Male 30-39 Local Individual
I've been fishing for decades now and the Dana Wharf crews rock! This trip I was aboard the Reel Fun and I had a blast. Fish were slow but the bite was sure. I was able to toss my worries overboard and reel in some fun times. I would recommend going out to anyone!
