fish reports are exaggerated.
Sun, Apr 10, 11   12:45 PM cliftonfinch Male 40-49 Local Group of Friends
cold water accounted for only aprox 10 small rock fish with 70 people on the boat. captain did not go far looking for the fish, only went aprox 3 miles from harbor. deck hand did not chum at all. when you chum, it will bring the small bass up to bite. it will be our last trip out of dana point.

Good activity to keep kids attention
Sat, Apr 9, 11   2:00 PM punuffney Male 30-39 Local Family With Children
This is the second time we've been on this trip, once with blue whales and once with grey whales. It's a good activity for kids, as it's short enough to keep their attention and there are many different attractions. You have the whole being on a boat experience, which for some kids was more interesting than the animals themselves. The whales are interesting, but the kids sometime have a hard time focusing on the sea long enough to actually see them. The dolphins are usually more interesting because they are visible for long periods of time. One thing to keep in mind is that there is no guaranty that you'll actually see a whale, especially late in the season. We were the first group to see a whale in 19 trips. I don't know if I would be so positive about the trip if we didn't see any animals.

Thoroughly enjoyed the trip

We didn't see any whales on this trip, but did see over a hundred dolphins feeding and surfing very near the boat. The weather was good, and the ocean was beautiful. We enjoyed the marvelous South Orange County coastline. The narrator was very interesting and informative. A whale sighting would have been even better, but not necessary for a great trip. Will definitely do it again.

A bad day for fishing but a great time on Ocean!
Sun, Apr 3, 11   12:45 PM TroyTerBest Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
The fish didn't bite much at all, but the crew was energetic to help get you baited in the water to try. The day was beautiful and the food on board was fabulous. Still a great time. Time seemed long but that was because we didn't get many fish on the whole boat (about 6 or 7). Was really hoping to have the kids catch something. Maybe next time. For some reason when we checked in early 2 1/2 hrs we were overcharged (kids rods were free) and did not receive the boarding tickets. So after we stood in line to get a good rail spot we were last on board after I went back to the office for the tickets. They remembered me because of the refund of the 2 kids rentals. The crew wanted fish for us too and helped out whenever needed. Would definitely try again.

A great time for the family !
Sat, Apr 2, 11   2:00 PM Macpony Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
We had a great time and learned a lot about marine life. The captain and the deck hands were extremely knowledgeable about the area and the animals we were seeing. I was especially impressed with the crew's sensitivity to observing the whales. We stayed a distance away from them so as not to disturb their migration. It was a fantastic learning trip for the entire family and well worth the time and money.

I brought my mother-in law who is visiting from Florida, she wanted to see a whale. Unfortunately there were no whales. Everything else was perfect.

Guarantee and knowledge

The company guaranteed that we would see dolphins or whales and we saw many! The staff was very knowledgeable in marine biology and they made every effort to answer any questions anyone had.

Great Dolphin Watching
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)
Wed, Mar 30, 11   2:00 PM aprilpoggi Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
It was a very lovely day. I can't wait to go back again but this time I am hoping to see whales. Yeah, I know It's a shot in the dark but it would have been nice. My only real complaint would be is that I would liked the crew to have a bit more control of the passengers. There was a group of families with about 5 kids that just ran around the whole boat the whole time. Annoying! They knocked my 3 year down and just kept running. Apparent the adults in the group also had no control or just did not care. This group really has an effect on on my families experience. I just wish the crew would have stepped up.

It was quite foggy but we still saw lots of dolphins and really enjoyed our day. We can not wait to do it again and hopefully see a whale but we are really looking forward to just having a better view. On a clear day this would have been a perfect day.

Relaxing

Tue, Mar 29, 11   2:00 PM barnyards5 Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
Even though we did not see any whales, we still saw a few dolphins... They gave us a complimentary retrun visit since they felt that we didn't get our monies worth... Wow... How often do you get chance to go out on to the Ocean and spend 2 hours in the sunshine see a small amount of wildlife and not have to pay for the most part. It was well worth what I spent just to be on the boat and relax.. The crew aboard were freindly, and pleasant... I would go back again and again... It was a nice trip for my granddaughters first boat trip.. Thanks.

Great day on the seas and lots of dolphins but no Gray Whales. Not the crews fault. They were great and made the day very enjoyable. I will definitely repeat until I see my Gray Whale!

Minnosota relatives enjoyed trip. Trip was great but didn't see any whales and only a few dolpins. Captain gave us Whale check return tickets for another trip. No expiration date for the trip. We still enjoyed the coast line and just being out on the water.
