OK

It was nice we did see 1 blue whale even tho you cannot get very close to even see. All our 2 hours were spent on just seeing the one whale (which we were happy to see), but no time was left to see any dolphins or sea lions. We had 3 grandchildren with us plus our grown children for a birthday celebration day. It could have been made a little more exciting with seeing different things...too much time spent on waiting for the whale to surface again...little children would have enjoyed the dolphins & sea lions too...a little disappointing

Spectacular

As if bragging rights to seeing the blue whale in all its glory (or at least about 40 percent of it as it submerged and emerged from a deep dive) weren't enough, we were treated to a totally unprompted, enthusiastic show put up by the hundreds of dolphins racing our boat! What a treat for adults and kids alike...and so much better than paying exorbitant Seaworld ticket prices. There is nothing like seeing the animals wild and free, and oh so happy in the deep blue ocean where they belong. Our captain was determined to make the whale watching happen, even after we sighted one very briefly and it dived back in. We kept looking, and patiently waiting (in the meanwhile being treated to the amazing dolphins), and then received the ultimate reward: the blue whale. Absolutely amazing.

Truly Not What I Thought It Would Be

I will start by saying parking was a nightmare. They provide a permit but its only value is IF you can find parking. If you are going to advertise a parking permit, the assumption is that you are reserving a spot for the customer. NOT the case. The people in charge were rude, the young men on the boat were arrogant. The boat was essentially a small shrimp boat and it was packed to the hilt with people. I knew there would be other people, but this was ridiculous. The only guarantee this company can offer is obnoxious employees at the front desk AND on the boat, a crammed experience, and coronary-inducing parking. Sorry guys, but the whole experience was a complete ****-fest.

These guys did an excellent job helping my 8 year old daughter and me. Both of us were first timers. They let us know how to fish each spot and helped us get the bait on and checked on us and gave us useful tips! Couldn't be more pleased!!!

Great time, fun crew, caught fish

Fished with my 13-year old son, Captain explained where we were going, why we were going there, and how much time it would take to get there - all were helpful. Got on to some Calico bass with some larger (presumably Yellowtail) bites but no Yellowtail landed. Good times.

Just Plain AWESOME

If you've never gone then what are you waiting for. Beautiful day out on the ocean looking for Dolphin and Whales. Came across hundreds of Dolphin and two blue whales. Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour out of Dana Point is awesome. The crew is very friendly and knowledgable and the catamaran is the way to go. Very comfortable, clean and has a nice kitchen/galley area. Would do this over and over.

Such a fun adventure!

We went the first ride out at 10am, and it started out slow, but by the time the sun came out, we were lucky enough to see several sightings of blue whales! Three different tale flicks and all! So cool. My son can't wait to go back again. The crew was very knowledgable and friendly. Be prepared. You might get a bit seasick, but it's worth it if you see those whales! Thank you so much to the captain and everyone on the crew. It was money well spent.

Fantastic Experience

We saw 2 magnificent blue whales and a huge sunfish that was sunning himself and did not move away. The crew gave us a lot of information about the animals we were looking at. Even though the water had high waves getting out into the ocean, the captain made the ride very smooth until we were in calmer waters. Also, the hot dogs were delicious.

a most memorable day

Although the whales were not to be seen on our excursion, the grandkids squealed with delight as dolphins jumped out of the water. It was the first time for the three of us to view these amazing creatures in their natural habitat. If you're thinking about going...GO!

disappointed
Fri, Aug 22  5:30 PM warrenweir Male 60-69 Local Family With Children
My grandson was on his first ocean fishing trip. We got on boat and all the established fishing people headed for the back of the boat to Anchor there positions on the rail. Every spot on the rail has a number and at some point the captain is supposed to ask everyone to rotate to there same number either to the right or Left, so that everyone gets a position at the back of the boat, which is where the best fishing is, at least while anchored. Well My Grandson who is 11 years old was never asked if he wanted or needed any help, there were other Women on the boat and they ended up on the front of the boat the whole trip. The crew was good, food great, but only one deck hand for over 30 people with a lot of beginners. Won't go on that Boat again!

Great captain and mate, but poor scheduling
Fri, Aug 22  2:00 PM mlajr1 Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The captain and mate were dedicated to finding exciting wildlife during the tour. It was amazing. I wish the scheduling company had done a better job with our charter however, as we were put on a boat with a group that had charter the trip for a private party. We felt as if we were intruding.

Very enjoyable

Every thing was good. Got good discount 40% used it too book smoothly on line. Saved 100$ on 5 tickets. The check in was simple. Parking available. The voyage was very nice. Saw dolphins and 5 whales. It was not crowded and the crew did their best to follow them. We really enjoyed it. Coming from central Saudi Arabia their was a lot to savior. Really worth the trip and good value fir money.
