We had a terrific time on our family fishing trip and always choose to go through Dana Point fishing because of its excellent services and convenience.

Lovely Day for being out on the water.

The weather warmed up from previous days, so it turned out to be a lovely afternoon in hopes for a great or somewhat successful fishing trip. Met a lot a friendly people, but that was about it. They don't tell you really about the success rate of catching fish until about 1/2 through when you have not really even gotten a bite that the water is still to cold for fish to be caught. They should just let you know upfront that many excursions are coming up empty handed to say the least. This was on a Sunday. My other family members went out on their 1/2 price special two days later and it was worse, they didn't even have any bites. Your just paying for a boat ride. Might as well go whale watching for the same price, that way you know you are only going for a "scenic" ride. Most people on the boat caught nothing only 1 or at the most 3 people caught 1 fish each.

The company guaranteed that we would see dolphins or whales and we saw many! The staff was very knowledgeable in marine biology and they made every effort to answer any questions anyone had.

We left on time, the crew was friendly and informative. Slow fishing in the winter but we moved around a bit to try new locations as needed (we hit 4). We are inexpereinced fisherpeople and the crew was good about helping when lines got caught and even helped set up the poles we borrowed.

The captain went out of his way to make sure we saw the whale out that day, and find a pod of dolphins to play/chase us. Thank you captain - we loved the sea adventure on New Year's Eve!

Amazing to see magnificent grey whales live!
Sun, Feb 17, 08   2:00 PM roowohoo Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The captain of our Whale Watching trip has been doing this since 1989. He is extremely knowledgeable and I felt he still was in awe after seeing these magnificent creatures so many times. He know where to go and how to approach the whales. The crowd was wonderful and they don't overcrowd the boat. I thoroughly enjoyed the views of Dana Point and San Clemente as well. I came away with new wonder and appreciation for God's amazing creatures. Worth it!

This was a very special day for us...we got to see at least 6 massive blue whales and we were able to get so close! The pilot of the boat knew when and where to linger for us to have best views and had great commentary! The boat (the Catamaran) was in great shape, spotless and very comfortable. We live here and are just amazed we had not visited this tour before...we will definitely be back with friends and family.

1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)
Tue, Jan 12, 10   10:00 AM RonZech Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We saw a gray whale as predicted. The highlight, however, was where we found the school of sardines being fed on by about 4 kinds of sea birds, sea lions, and dolphins, all in a broiling frenzy with sardine scales floating on the water. Lots of great close-up pictures! Beautiful day with fairly calm seas.
