Good trip

The crew is very friendly and informative. The boat was nice and not too crowded so we were able to get a good view of all the sealife. It was something that we will keep on our list to take all of our out of town visitors on to see the wildlife of CA.

nice time, even with funky weather

went as a family, my mom just went along for the ride. we had a nice time together and the crew was helpful and friendly. however, it started getting really windy so we headed back early. they gave us each $15 off our next trip to make up for the trip getting cut short, so that was really nice. next time will choose a better day (weather-wise) to go.

OKAY

It would have been preferable if there were places to sit. It was hard for us to stand for 5 hours.

1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)

We were lucky in spotting three gray whales and a pod of thousand dolphins. The captain was very knowledgeable and he took every possible effort to make sure we experienced a fun whale watching trip. The trip was totally awesome and my family enjoyed it. We are planning to come back for the summer season!

Great crew and sailing

Light day for viewing ocean animals, but the crew searched and we found several dophins and a sea lion. Captain Larry shared a lot of information on the species and their habits. Enjoyable cruise on the boat. First time on the ocean. Would recommend it for anyone and hope to be able to go again one day.

Great crew

We had a good time - fish were kinda scarce and there were a lot of throw backs. We stayed pretty close to shore. The boat and the crew were nice. The food was great. Will definately do it again.

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sun, Oct 10, 10   4:00 PM mcoburn Female 30-39 Local Family Without Children
Average to below average boat trip - saw a ton of dolphin - but no whales, as advertised. Nice to be on a boat, but overpriced for just a nice boat trip, with dolphin watching for about 20 minutes.

DECKS HANDS AND FISHING DURATION
Sat, Oct 9, 10   10:00 AM joenron Male 60-69 Local Family Without Children
THIS IS MY THIRD TRIP WITH DANA POINT, THE FIRST WAS ON THE CLEMENTE. THE SECOND WAS ON THE SUM FUM. TODAY'S TRIP WAS ON THE REEL FUN. I WAS THOROUGHLY IMPRESSED BY THE DECK HANDS AND FISHING DURATION ON THE CLEMENTE. THE OTHER 2 BOATS LEFT MUCH TO BE DESIRED. TODAY'S TRIP ON THE REEL FUN WAS TO BE A 5 HOUR TRIP BEGINNING AT 6:30 A.M. WE PULLED AWAY FROM THE DOCK ON TIME AND PROCEEDE TO THE BAIT DOCK. WE THEN WENT BACK TO THE DOCK TO PICK UP A MAN AND AND A 3 YEAR OLD BOY (WHO HAPPENED TO CREATE SOMEWHAT OF A DISTRACTION ON THE TRIP) IT WASN'T UNTIL APPROXIMATELY 8:15 A.M. THAT WE PUT OUR POLES IN THE WATER. DURING THE TRIP, THE CREW HAD US ROTATE OUR POSITIONS AROUND THE BOAT(WHICH SEEMED TO BE POINTLESS, AS, WE WE INUNDATED WITH HANG UPS IN THE KELP). I DO LOOK FORWARD TO BOOKING TRIPS AGAIN, IF, I CAN BE PROVIDED OF A FISHING SCHEDULE FOR THE CLEMENTE. THANKS JOE C.

We really enjoy our trip whale watching

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....
