When on the whale watching tour from Dana Point CA saw two blue whales and had a great time. The captain was very knowledgeable and informative. Would go again if I had the chance. Kids loved it also.

Fishing trip

We had fun. Wish there were more fish. It was good just to get out on the boat and fish. Captain and crew were very accomodating.

1/2 Day on Sum Fun
Sat, Jul 21, 12   12:00 PM sbay0307 Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
This was my second trip on Sum Fun, and each time with limited results - in fact, we only caught one fish between 3 of us. Both times the boat did not have anchovies for bait. Other boats that I've taken out had anchovies, and we were successful. The boat was overcrowded - 56 anglers. Not only was the boat overcrowded for fishing, there was a sign on the boat that read "27 adult life vests". Interesting. I will never take Sum Fun out again.

Whale of a time!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Fri, Jul 20, 12   5:00 PM donsong Female 50-59 Local Couple on a Date
Really enjoyed the trip. Saw a large school of dolphin before we saw the blue whales. The crew did a great job of "chasing" the whale spouts, so we could get some great pictures of the whales. My only recommendation is to down sweep the speakers, as they were very hard to hear! Overall though, great trip, thanks.

"Better than Sea World"
Fri, Jul 20, 12   2:00 PM bartondb Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We took our two grandchildren, ages 5 and 6, on the two hour tour. It was outstanding. We had three whale sitings, hundreds of dolphins, a California Sea Lion and jelly fish. Our granddaughter enthusiastically said, "This is better than Sea World!!!" Of course, we agree wholeheartedly. A couple of young passengers were dealing with a little nausea. I think staying in the fresh air helps that.

Fast and Easy

I haven't gone fishing for a few years. I liked that fact that I could purchase on line ahead of time, making less stress in the morning on 'how early should I get there, is there going to be a long line" It was very efficient and easy.

Worth every penny!
Tue, Jul 17, 12   10:00 AM jpinkney Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We took the whale watching trip on half price Tuesday. It was worth every penny. I would recommend taking some Drmamine about 1 hour before you get on the boat.. The crew was very friendly and the boat was clean. We were lucky enough to watch two humpback whales and one blue whale. The captain was very knowledgeable about the whales and gave an easy to understand presentation. I would recommend this tour to everyone.

A Friday Evening to Remember
Fri, Jul 13, 12   5:30 PM davidhward Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We (4of us) booked a twilight fishing trip on a friday evening. It was expected to go a little further out of the harbor, but we went only about a mile from shore. The captain took us to three different locations with very little success. It was interesting to find out that the few fish being caught were much smaller. So the bait we were using should have been much smaller. We didn't find that out until the last spot we dropped our lines. There was 57 people on the boat with 4 crew members including the captain. There was only going to be 44 but a few more were allowed on the boat. It was a little crowded but to be expected... so lines got tangled about half the time. Then because we were fishing so close to shore it was a little more difficult keeping your bait on the hook and from being eaten by the birds. I ended up catching a pelican. It flew off with my hook & bait then broke my line . I would probably go on a full day trip instead next time if you're more interested in catching something besides a bird and smaller fish. Otherwise, it was a relaxing three hour tour close to shore with very well used rented rod & reel. I would not rent them again. If you are a more serious fishermen then bring your own gear. But it was fun and the ocean was calmer close to shore.

Fishing off Dana Point Sucks
Wed, Jul 11, 12   6:30 AM shankbro Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Id NEVER do that again. We stayed so close to the shore, that we couldn't get away from the pelicans, seals and dolphin. Needless to say, the only thing caught were the pelicans. It was quite sad too see all theses birds with hooks and lures stuck in their little pea brained heads. From now on, it's only full day boat fishing trips for me!

Great Cruse

Wish the crew would provide more information as to what they were doing. I just saw them smoking in the wheelhouse for the last hour of the trip. Would not say that we are looking for dolphins or whales after the first hour and encounter.

Dolphin Mega Pod

We were in the midst of a wonderful dolphin mega pod of 5000 to 6000! You never know what you will see in nature: we hoped to see a blue whale but instead were entertained by this amazing group!

Tough day fishing, nice to be out on water
Sun, Jul 1, 12   12:45 PM REDSIDE Male 50-59 Local Group of Friends
Sunday PM trip. Went fishing with my son and his friend, they are both in their early 20's. The live bait was large sardines, so I think that affected the calico bite. Maybe 35 anglers on boat, saw maybe 20 keeper calicos landed, some of them were decent sized (3#+). I just couldn't hook one. The crew was great, the weather was nice, look forward to trying again soon. Hopefully they will have anchovies soon.
