Awesome!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

Captain's knowledge was great. Plus, you could actually understand the loudspeaker (which is a first!) We did not see a whale, but we saw hundreds of dolphins, right next to the boat. Sad about the whale, but the captain could not have been better, plus they gave us the whale ticket to come back and try again another time. Highly recommend. My kids loved just the boat experience, and the dolphins were unbelievable.

Spending a Delightful Day with Grandchildren
Fri, Oct 12, 12   10:00 AM JamesBrawner Male 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
During our family visit together in San Clemente, my two grandchildren, ages 14 & 17, spent a delightful day aboard the Clemente, fishing for Calico Bass, Sheepshead, and Halibut. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, catching several fish and being comfortably well-treated by the Capitain and First Mate of the Clemente. The boat was well-equipped and well-handled so as to enhance our trip. I would recommend this outing to anyone who enjoys the outdoors and spending quality time with family.

We spent too long looking at the common dolphins. I felt like we should have moved on to find the whales.

We had a wonderful time! The crew was very helpful and gave us all the facts on the wildlife we saw during our Catamaran ride. We didn't see any whales but we did see hundreds of dolphins as they swam along side the boat for quite some time. It was an incredible experience that we will definitely plan to do again the next time we visit Dana Point. I highly recommend this adventure and taking advantage of 1/2 price Tuesday's made it affordable for us to do something out of the ordinary during our stay at the beach.

Strange adventure

We did the half day fishing trip. It was fun but not what I thought it would be. We caught a couple small fish. The birds that follow were so annoying. The seals were cute but really... How are you supposed to catch fish when seals and birds are trying to take your bait and get your catch before you get in the boat. The water was choppy and I personally think we should have gone out farther to get some real fishing done. If I'm going to stand up for 5 hours and pay what I did I sure hope they would try to take you where you have the best chance to catch some decent fish. The crew and people in the store we nice and helpful. Pretty area but next time I will do something more productive.

Really enjoyed the outing. It was at the end of the whale season and we did not see a whale but we were very pleased with the cruise. We did see many many dolphins and the kids loved seeing them jump out of the water.

Very relaxing cruise, the new catamaran is spectacular! The captain went out of his way to make sure we saw a whale, however, it was about a hundred yards away - so since we saw a whale we could not say that we didn't see one and come back for another adventure. It was relaxing though.

The captain went out of the standard 7 mile zone to show us the only Blue whale in the area and it was worth it! I have been on whale watching boats on the east coast and Hawaii and this trip was by far the best. I also enjoyed the dolphins cavorting around the boat. I have recommended this trip to others and plan to go another trip when the whales are "in town".

Beautiful and relaxing. Only thing that would have made it better was a whale! Saw literally a hundred dolphins.

While we didn't see any whales, we did see several large pods of dolphins who swam alongside the boat. The guide was very informative about the marine life we saw and answered any questions we had.

Enjoyed seeing the dolphins and whales. Only complaint I have is that in the brochure it says sr price $40 and when I called and asked for a sr discount I was told that you have none and I pd $45 each. I feel I am intitled to a $10 refund. thanks Linda
