Better planning

It took over an hour to get to a fishing hole. We traveled down the coast and came back up the coast before we droped anchor. The crew was chumming only the back part of the boat.

A wonderful day with the Very Best Boat and Crew
Sat, Jun 18, 11   12:00 PM MikeSleek Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
Ive been whale watching for years with my young children, in Dana Point and Monterey California and the Catamaran along with her Crew was the VERY BEST we have ever experienced.. Although the Whales did not show on our trip, weve never experienced a better day on the water. The boat is very stable ,quiet and truely low emmission in regards to her engines. It makes for a pleasent day regardless of the show. It was our first time on the Catamaran and I will choose no other Boat again for Whale Watching or Coastal Cruise, " Its simply the Best boat and crew " Thanks For A Great Day and Wonderful Memories with My 3 Children, Michael S,

Great Family activity- enjoying our beautiful ocean, and being away from cell phones and TV! Fun to teach the kids how to fish. We caught 2 and had them for dinner!

A bit disorganized and unprofessional
Sat, Jun 18, 11   10:00 AM lucerosmith Male 30-39 Local Group of Friends
I will say that the fishing trip was nice. everyone in our group caught fish. The scheduling of the trip was a bit disorganized. Confirmed a 6:30 am trip then via email (no call) was told the trip was rescheduled to 10 am. No refund if that time didn't work out for us. One person in our group however maintained a 6:30 am departure time. When I called they said that they didn't have a 6:30 am boat but then one came up just not big enough for everyone in the group (3 people total). They rescheduled the last guy from the 6:30 am spot to the 10 am spot with the rest of us. When we arrived they told us that our one friend had been moved from the 6:30 am (saturday) spot to to 10 am spot on the previous Monday and he missed it. Finally got it all cleared up and we were able to go on the trip together. Kind of a headache... CONFIRM you departure day and time... at least twice!!!

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.

Lousy Fishing

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!!!
Thu, Jun 2, 11   10:00 AM CPalacio Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
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
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

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
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
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
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
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...
