Had a great time

The group on the boat was small enough that there was no problem seeing the sea life. We saw whales even though both the grey and blue whales were not running. We saw "minkey" whales. We will return when the blue whales are running.

Fun with my son

My Indian Guide Tribe put together a father son fishing trip to spend some time with our boys and had a fantastic time. The crew was very helpful with baiting hooks for the boys, fixing broken lines and helping the boys understand what fishing was all about. My son caught a variety of fish, learned how to actually bait the hook, how to get his line in the water without spooling the reel, how to reel in the fish and get it over the side of the boat and where the best places to fish on the boat are. Thanks for a fun trip.

Great Crew

The friendly crew members on the Reel Fun were always present and ready to help. The boat is smaller and low to the water which makes for a good trip for kids. Capt was willing to move around to look for fish. brkfst burrito was well cooked and flavorful. If they rotated the anglers so everyone gets a chance at the stern life would be perfect. :-)

Had the pleasure recently of going out on the Sum Fun 1/2 day 6:30am - 11:30am on Friday, 6/1/12. Don't remember the name of the Captain or the Deckhands..... but they sure made the trip fun and took good care of everyone on the boat. Very helpful and were dedicated to make sure everyone caught fish. Thank you for a memorable trip with my son-in-law.

2 Groups of Dolphins - No Whales
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sun, May 27, 12   5:00 PM kritchie Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
The kids (ages 11, 9 ,3) all loved their first Ocean Adventures whale-watching trip in Dana Point, CA. We saw 2 large pods of dolphins (50+ dolphins in each group), however, there was only 1 reported sighting of a whale in the far distance. We understand that these are wild animals and that there is no guarantee of what wildlife you will see. The captain brought us down south to Black Rock to see the Sea Lions sunbathing on the rocks. The kids couldn't stop talking about the dolphin sightings on the ride home and we hope next time to see some whales. All-in-all the experience was a real hit.

We had never been whale watchng before and I heard that it was pretty fun so I decided to take my wife and my son on a little trip. The trip was nice and the cptain was very knowlegable about the sea animals we encountered. Even though we did not see any whales on the trip we did see two different types of dolphins. Had a very fun time and it was cool that we went on a tuesday and got 1/2 off on the tickets.

Great service, but ...

We had a great time on the whale watch and were impressed that Dana Wharf returned our tickets after we didn't see any whales. However, I repeatedly told the ticket agent the ages of our 4 children and she still charged us the adult rate for each of them. When we got to Dana Wharf, the children's ticket prices were clearly posted. It was irritating to know that we could have saved about $20, but we had a great day!

My 7 yr old son and I had a fantastic time on the 6:30 am fishing trip. We enjoyed a great breakfast sandwich from the galley and had some great catches through out the day. Crew was extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommend anyone to take one of their fishing trips. We are going back as a family with my other son and wife in 2 weeks and are we are all looking forward to it!

I wouldn't go on this twilight trip again, unless I am with somebody. It was boring and we weren't catching hardly anything!! I love the 3/4 day boats and will be doing that on the 29th!!!

I go Whale watching every year but this year I brought along 2 new additions: a DSLR and my girlfriend. We had a great time with a nice group and friendly and knowledgeable staff. Gorgeous day, started right on time, interacted with common dolphins and saw other types, as well as sea lions (whale migration season was almost over). Extremely satisfied and will always go with them!

We had a wonderful time but it was a beautiful day with clear water and lots of marine life sitings. Probably wouldn't have been as thrilled if we hadn't seen so much stuff. The staff was nIce and very knowledgeable.

Went whale watching but was unable to see any but captain and crew were trying very hard to locate some whales did have fun with dolphins and got a chance to see sea lions and seals. The surprising part was captain had given us a pass Plus a coupon for half off for a family of four was not expecting that at all. Would have still returned due to the experience of the adventure. Thanks a lot my children and wife had s blast.
