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.

Crew was wonderful and the vessel wasn't crowded. We stayed with a huge pod of dolphins for about an hour...it was fabulous.

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

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 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!

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!
