This was an awesome experience!!!!!!!!!
1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises
Tue, Jul 24, 12   4:00 PM BobDietz Male 50-59 Local Group of Friends
I'd gone Whale-watching about a month ago, out of Newport. It was awful. Wet, smelly boat. No whales sighted... not one! A few dolphins, some sea lions... no biggie. So when my friends suggested we try it again, I was less than enthusiastic. But they said they'd heard that Dana Point was having sightings, so I agreed. Lemme tell ya folks, I was NOT disappointed!!!!! We saw bunches of whales... Blue whales!!! A truly fascinating experience, loved every minute of it!!! I would HIGHLY recommend the Dana Point whale-watching to ANYONE!!! The Catamaran was especially nice, not too crowded... allowed everyone a great view of these magnificent creatures!!! The crew was nice, and very informative... unlike the experience at Newport. I can't wait to go again, and my friends all feel the same!!! FIVE stars... without hesitation!!!

well worth it

This trip was well worth the money. We saw two grey whales and took some photos. The catamaran was very clean. Our guide/captain was extremely knowledgable about the whales and marine life in general. It was obvious when listening to his knowledge that he is passionate about his career in this area.

We had fun. Wish there were more fish. It was good just to get out on the boat and fish. Captain and crew were very accomodating.

We had a great time, although we did not catch anything. We are planning to go again if the price is right.

It was the fishes fault. Captain got us to the fish and detailed them underneath. Fish just weren't biting that night

Mostly great trip
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sat, Jul 21, 12   5:00 PM DontCare2 Male 20-29 Local Individual
We saw at least five blue whales and a pod of long-beaked common dolphin. We even had more than one blue come right up to the bow. For some reason, with about forty minutes left in the trip, the captain decided to leave the whales and slowly make his way all the way to the buoy off the headland to see the sea lions. For this reason, we missed seeing a fin whale cow-calf pair. Why he did that when we had plenty of whales around us is beyond me. Otherwise a very good trip.

Fast and Easy

I haven't gone fishing for a few years. I liked that fact that I could purchase on line ahead of time, making less stress in the morning on 'how early should I get there, is there going to be a long line" It was very efficient and easy.

Good time

This is a good operation if you are looking for some fun fishing. The boats are squared away. The crews are decent and they do their best to put you where the fish are. I have been on 3 of these trips over the last 3 years. If you are looking for a short 1/2 day deep sea fishing outing this is a good deal and I would recomend it. The fishing is hit or miss, but that is what it is.

Great experience! Saw several whales!

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!
