Fairly good fishing
Thu, Jun 16, 11   5:30 PM BruceHawk Male 50-59 Local Unspecified
Fishing was good on our twilight trip, it would have been lots better with anchovies for bait, we had 90 % large sardines. And the 13 inch Calico bass in general were not large enough to swallow a large sardine. The Crew on the Clementine was good and very helpful. The bass readily went after the few chovies we had.

No individual attention for first-time fishermen

I took my son for his 18th birthday. We caught absolutely nothing, had little help or assistance in anything from selecting a pole to baiting our lines. It was a nice experience to be out on the boat together I suppose, but if that's what we had wanted to do we should have done a regular harbor cruise, not a fishing charter. We were both very disappointed.

My son (15) went with 2 friends. They got 4 fish between the 3 of them and 1 was a mackerel. Captain should have known better locations to go to.

This trip was the perfect amount of time - 2 hours. Although we didn't see a whale, it was nice to be out on the ocean on a nice boat on a warm sunny day. We saw lots of dolphins and the captain was very informative about the sea life that we encountered. Overall it was a pleasant day.

Great Trip and Great Experience!!!

My girlfriend and I were visiting from Oklahoma. We both love to fish and this was no exception. The service we received while on the boat was great. Everyone was quick to help and they moved around for better chances at catching fish. We joined the jackpot and came close to winning. It was a great experience and we would do it again. We would also recommend this experience to anyone coming to the area. A really great time!!!

Lots of Fun

My wife and I went into this knowing we may not see whales. We thought it'd be a good way to spend our anniversary either way. However, we saw whales. The captain and his crew were able to find us whales and get us several good views of them while they fed. Part luck, and part skill of the crew. The crew was also knowledgable, giving facts about blue whales while we watched and between sightings. They also joined in the excitement with the rest of the guests all-the-while telling us what to look for and when to look for it over the loud speaker. It was fun, informative, and an all around very good experiece with a fun bunch of hosts.

Good policy
Mon, May 30, 11   12:00 PM cinemaridden Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
Well, my trip was one of those unfortunate outings where we didn't see any dolphins or whales. A rarity to be sure. Thankfully the crew was very good about pointing out other things of interest to make the outing enjoyable. And, because we didn't see any dolphins or whales we were given a whale check which is good until the end of time. All we have to do is come back and we get another outing FOR FREE. So yeah, I think while the trip was a bit disappointing the company is very good in making sure that their customers are happy. Oh, and the food on the ship is actually VERY TASTY. Did not expect that. Good job!

Not Worth it.. Over Hyped
Sat, May 28, 11   5:00 PM Debdatta Male 30-39 Local Family With Children
We thought that it would be lots of fun. First the boat/vessel kept changing and they did not know which one was going. Very simple objective - You see even a few dolphins you are done. I am not sure what additional they show you other than being on the boat for two hours. It is over priced for sure, just to be on the boat and see some dolphins...

The cruise was very pleasant. Although it was near the end of the season and we saw only porpoises (not whales), it was a fun adventure and the cruise and fresh air were worth the trip. We also received free passes to take the cruise again (since we didn't see whales). It was a very smooth ride, and the crew were helpful and informative. We will definitely do this again, and bring more family along.

Excellent staff and a fun time
Sat, May 21, 11   5:00 PM gjmoreau Male 20-29 Local Couple on a Date
The staff is friendly and the boat crew were very knowledgable of the area. On our trip out, we were put in the middle of a pod of approximately 500 common bottlenose dolphin and got some great photos. No blue whales, but if you go out expecting to see a blue whale, I think you are setting yourself up for a disappointment. It's a great time, go out and expect to at least see some dolphins and other sea life.

Great activity, subpar boat crew.
Sat, May 21, 11   10:00 AM jholley12 Male 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
Enjoyed the day fishing, especially since it was a small group. I could imagine it getting too crowded with a full load. Only real complaint was in regards to the crew. A bunch of young kids who seemed more interested in their time joking around with eachother. Even decided they should clean the boat with everyone on board, having us move out of their way. They could use a reminder of where their paychecks come from. If I'm in the area again, I'll shop around. But not a bad outing for the price.

We had a great time!

Took my grandson (19 yrs. of age) and the weather was a bit cloudy at the start, but the sun came out in the early afternoon. Fishing wasn't great, but most everyone caught fish. We met some nice people from Egypt and helped them with their fishing tackle as they had no saltwater fishing experience. The crew were all extremely helpful and patient with everyone. It was an enjoyable day on the water.
