We enjoy our trip with catamaran whale watching. It was my daugther 23 birthday. She even cry of emotion watching the delfins jumping everywhere. My son (18) he had a lot of fun taking pictures and video of the delfins. I really recomend this family trip. It was worth it. I will do it again I love it. Thank You. Otilia Herrera

Litteraly " Reel Fun!"
Fri, Sep 24, 10   4:30 PM acastro Male 20-29 Local Family Without Children
Well to begin with, buying our tickets online through Zerve was fast and efficiant. 1,2,and 3 your done. Our trip consisted of my girlfriend ,my old man and myself. We set course from the Reel Fun vessel with the sun setting on the west. The captain and deck hand Dan were above outstanding and they were equally knowledgable and friendly. The captain made sure we all hooked up by aggressively keeping the catch alive and searching for new active spots. Our catch consisted of sculpin, sand bass and one giant lobster which was legally released. Once the fish were hooked and brought on board, the deckhand took care of the rest. Oh and if you had a chance to eat amongst the excitement, dont hesitate because a fresh juicy burger was a step away at the on board kitchen. Plus a refreshing cold one to wash it down. Once the sun dissapered the bite slowed down and we wrraped it up. Don't want to clean your fish later, no worries, an experienced fillet service was readily available as well( on deck). This was my first twilight bought not my first trip out of the wharf. I guess the evening trips were a secret because we had the boat to ourselves with only about ten people on board. REEL FUN....

I would recommend this trip. I had never done any type of activity like this before and I thought it was really neat. We only saw one pod of dolphins but even at that it was worth it. They were so cool and lots of babies too!!

We had a great trip! Saw lots of dolphins. Crew was very informative and enthusiastic. I took my 85 yr. old father with me and he had never seen anything like that before. Excellent Ocean Adventure!

Great crew

The crew on this boat was great. They were right on the spot every time a fish was caught, took if off hook, measured it for legal size, constantly helped especially newcomers to ocean fishing.

My wife's first fishing trip!
Fri, Sep 17, 10   10:00 AM geraldhonn Male 40-49 Unspecified Family Without Children
Perfect day on the "Sum Fun"! It was a great trip, a little short on catching fish because of cooler water. The captian moved several times on the look for more fish, he did a great job! The crew was very helpful with plenty of squid and live anchovies. They were always one step in front of any trouble. My wife had a great time and wants to go back when ever we can (works for me!) Thanks for a great trip!

I am a huge whale fan and I saw an ad in the San Clemente paper while visiting my aunt and uncle. My mom was visting with me and we were looking for things to do, when I came across your ad (ad was for 1/2 price except on tuesdays - not realizing that Tuesdays were your discount day). She was interested and we went online to look up more infomration on your website. We then discovered your half price Tuesdays and were sold! Buying online was very easy and finding the building to get the tickets was also very easy. We have been to Dana Point Harbor before, so it was very easy to find our way around. We loved the boat we had, especially the lookout area where we could have our own titanic moment. I think half the fun of the trip was being on the bow of the boat crashing over the waves. It was even fun when we got drenched from the high waves. We had great people on the tour who had as much fun getting we as we did. The two guys captaining the boat were great and had fun with us. It was so memorable, that I honestly can't believe I had never even thought to do this before. It was something that I might never have seen before, blue whales (we saw 2 blue whales and lots of dolphins that night), I felt so special! I definately want to come out again when I come back to visit. It is a great price for an extradordinary experience. We had a blast and recommend it to everyone!

Check fishing conditions before you go
Mon, Sep 6, 10   6:30 AM DiegoPongo Male 20-29 Local Family Without Children
The captain announced after we pushed off and were out at sea, that the fishing the past two weeks had been really slow. No one wants to spend 90 dollars or more to go out and not catch any keepers. I wish I had called ahead before getting tickets to find out the conditions. Also, we didn't actually get out of the harbor until about 7:10 am and the schedule says we push off at 6:30am. Not that big a deal, especially since we didn't start coming back in until 1130.

Wonderful experience!
Mon, Aug 23, 10   12:00 PM jimteeling Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
About five minutes into our adventure, we were entertained by a group of California sea lions relaxing on a buoy. Shortly thereafter, we saw dolphins diving and swimming. There must have been one hundred of these loveable, beautiful, graceful creatures. And, to top off our trip, we saw four magnificient blue whales. Words can not describe the beauty we beheld. Our two crew members were very personable and professional. It was clear that they were as excited as all of us about seeing nature's incredible gifts. The catamaran was the perfect size and everyone on board was able to see everything. It's a great ride! We are planning another trip to California to see the grey whales, and will book with Catamaran Adventure Cruises.

The crew was fun and enthusiastic and provided a great deal of insight into marine mammals. We saw a dozen blue whales, so it was an extraordinary afternoon of whale watching. Great experience.

The launch was on time. The crew was very informative and polite and made us feel welcome. They paid particular attention to our safety. We saw several blue whales and dolfins.
