We had a great time, saw several blue whales and two large pods of dolphins. The two hours flew by. I'd highly recommend this cruise!

Mugged at Sea

We've been on several whale watching tours, but we have never been "mugged" before! The whale came right at us like the shark in Jaws, and it went right under the catamaran and out the other side. The captain knew exactly where to find the whales and had officially named one of the ones we saw. The crew was super friendly. The boat was stable, comfortable, and not crowded, leaving all the patrons grinning widely as we shared the wonders before us. From the online purchase of the tickets to the disembarking with a return discount coupon, everything went smoothly.

We were in town for a wedding and wanted to accomplish a bucket list endeavor. This experience was absolutely wonderful! Captain Todd was so knowledgable and passionate as he educated us about the dolphins, whales and sea lions that we saw. The entire crew were friendly and went out of their way to assure us a great trip. Thank you!

Been on vacation at Laguna Beach twice and done the tour both times. Wife really wanted to see a whale. I didn't mind. But after seeing one this trip, I understand and can't wait to do it again. People are awesome. Trip was awesome. Be back soon I hope.

Really good trip

This is something I do every summer when I am out at the beach. I think this is my 5th trip. The boat and crew are good and the experience is always great. I always have a good time. The fishing luck was kind of lousy this time, but that is just the way it goes. It wasn't for not trying. At least one of our party caught a halibut that was big enough to win him the jack pot! I will go again for sure.

too late in the season

it's unfortunate that the pelicans, diving birds, and seals makes you rethink your strategy to fish and to virtually only bottom fish. Catching fish was very limited but the captain tried hard and moved the boat more than he probably wanted. Still any day fishing was better than the best day of work.

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.

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.

Although we didn't see any whales, we were rewarded with seeing pods of dolphins with infants! The Captain was very well informed and gave a great tour.

Morning and late afternoon, but not night
Sat, Aug 17, 13   5:30 PM daniel2 Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
Sum Fun was too small a boat and was too crowded. Several people got sick, at night. Then, especially when the boat begins to rock and heave through the swells, sea sickness becomes prevalent since the horizon line is no longer visible. Our last two fishing excursions were on the Dana Pride, a much bigger boat, with half the fishermen. Both of those trips were far more enjoyable.

OK
Sat, Aug 17, 13   5:30 PM karenschwimm Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Crew was very nice and helpful. Fishing was very poor. Only 3 real (keeper) fish caught by entire group of 50-60 people, and they were small. My son did catch 3 mackerels that we threw back. Since it was his first fishing trip, he thought it was pretty cool. I'm not a fisherman and thought the trip got to be a little long. Boat moved quite a bit to find fish, but there wasn't much out there. Food on board was decent and inexpensive.
