No Whales, Lots of Dolphins
Tue, Jun 12, 12   2:00 PM pblaimont Female 20-29 Local Group of Friends
So while we saw no whales the boat ride itself was greatly enjoyable, they have a guarantee that if no wildlife is spotted you get a ticket to come again another time, we saw a lot of dolphins and it was really great to be up close. The captain of the ship also had good knowledge about the dolphins and i learned a lot about them, overall great experience and i would go again

We spent $32 a ticket and didn't see any whales. They kept telling us how the whale was spotted in that area the day before, but we didn't see any whales. We saw a few dolphin so we didn't get a refund to come back another day. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!

We saw 3 Blue Whales, lots of dolfins, seal lions and seals. The crew was wonderful and informative. The boat was really nice and clean. I'm a native Californian and have been coming to Dana Point since I was 2 months old and never knew that whale watching was available out of Dana Point. Moved to Colorado 3 years ago and came to visit California with the kids and signed us up for whale watching! It's wonderful - do it!

If we would have caught fish it would have been a perfect day! The skipper did his very best to get us "hooked up" and we got our "pool money" back. The fish just were not cooperating.

Deep sea fishing, but not many fish
Sat, Oct 20, 07   12:00 PM paulniehouse Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
A great trip with the kids (9 & 11). They caught a decent number of small fish and had fun doing it. As far as actually getting some fish to take home and eat, it didn't happen.

Caught 30" Halibut

I took one of my Grandsons and Granddaughters fishing on the half day boat " Reel Fun". The crew was a good group of young men that did a great job making sure that everyone on board had a good time. When someone hooked into a larger fish, one of the crew were there to assist if needed. At two different locations, my Grandson hooked into a couple really large fish. Both times one of the crew made sure he had enough room to fight and enjoy his 5 minute battle. The first escaped, but the second turned out to be a 30", Jack Pot Winning, Halibut. Over the years, I've used Dana Point Harbor as our "go to" fishing distention. My Grandson leaves for college today. The "Reel Fun" crew helped create memories I will always cherish...... Thank you.

We would have liked to go farther out to find more fishing potential. Didn't catch much worth keeping. Maybe the boat needs a Fishfinder.

The captain and staff were excellent. They knew where the whales were and followed them with great precision. It was unbelivealbe to my wife and myself how they could predict where and when they would surface. My wife got a great picture of the whales tail. A unusual and unique experience.

I'm with Laurie Anderson and helping organize the Dolphins Love Kids boat trips. I really appreciate the open minded and friendly manner you displayed on the trip. I am a retired school teacher and also appreciated the interesting background information presented on the trip. Looking forward to more adventures in the future.
