Wonderful Day on the Water
Tue, Mar 3  10:00 AM SheriNelson1 Female 60-69 Local Family Without Children
Saw four whales -- blow holes, breaching and flukes, both north and southbound. Saw three species of dolphins in groups and the captain manuvered our ship so the dolphins would "surf" in the wake of the boat giving us all a great view. Sea lions were plentiful! The boat was very nice with a galley serving food below deck. An extra, raised deck made it easy for everyone to have a good viewing experience.

The trip was ok. It was just a bad timing. What do I mean? Well when I went, the weather was cold. And it was not a stable fishing experience. I fished before and I caught lots of fish but in this trip, I didn't catch anything. But my cousin did. And he was new to fishing. So I guess he had the newbie luck. By ill go again. Just in a better time of weather. But the employees are AWESEOME! They let me borrow a pole when mine broke. So I tiped them good:)

I was very excited to see many whales since this has been a very rich season of whale sightings. We saw a few dolphins around the boat as we were leaving which was great. Then the search for whales... for a long time. We saw two or three whales, but no breaching or anything exciting. We could barely make out their bodies as they were gliding in the water. Mostly just beautiful views of the coastline, where I live in Laguna. Also, the constant talking of the person guiding us got annoying after awhile. It was difficult to hear him clearly, and it mostly seemed like a distraction from our not seeing many whales or anything worthwhile. I wouldn't recommend this trip. Sorry.

great trip. Saw 7-10 dolphins and several whales. Captain was always informing and teaching what kind of whales etc. will do again.

Beautiful day to go out. We really didn't see much but realize there are no guarantees. we saw enough to keep us gazing for Dolphins or whales.

Went down & purchased dvd only to find someone selling them on deck

Great activity for out of town guests

We brought my parents who were visiting from out of state. They were able to board easily, have a nice seat for the two hours, see whales the entire time and enjoy the scenery. The captain spoke clearly and shared interesting facts, but didn't talk the whole time, which was really nice. I'll absolutely be back with more of our friends and family who visit!

great day on the water with unusual viewing of two courting grey whales. Crew performed well and Captain gave excellent information. Tuesday half price is a real bargain

lots of sightings
Tue, Feb 24  10:00 AM BldrGo Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
This was a great trip! We saw lots of whales and they were close to the boat. Also saw a few dolphins. The captain, Todd was super informative with just the right amount of detail and talking. We were on a regular style boat (not catamaran)m and it was very comfortable, lot of areas to sit and stand inside and out.

Great Fishing Day!
Sun, Feb 22  12:45 PM mikebornstei Male 40-49 Local Individual
This was the first fishing charter I have been on in many years and highly recommend it to anyone experienced or not. The boat itself was sizable and comfortable with plenty of elbow room. What made the trip, was the staff. On occasion, a line would be tangled or caught below the water. The staff was not only present, but proactive to be on the spot and fix it.

It was hassle free and I was so impressed with how nice and accommodating they were. Without that, I would have spent an hour trying to untangle the lines or re-thread a hook. The staff kept everything clean and orderly with a selection of bait readily available. I give this a 5 star rating and will plan another trip soon.

Awesome Trip!
Sun, Feb 22  12:00 PM ghemingway Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We enjoyed our whale and dolphin watching trip! We saw a gray whale and followed it for quite a while, then we saw many common dolphins and near the end one (possibly) bottle nosed dolphin. We also saw sea lions.

It would have been more fun to see more whales. The one we followed stayed under for a long time. It would ale one nice if travel time from the dock to the first sight wasn't included in the 2 hours. Same for the return trip. It would be great to actually have two hours of "watching" time. Staff are very knowledgable, friendly, and helpful!

We would do this again!

We saw whales and appreciated the captain's sharing of his knowledge about their behavior and their presence just off the Dana Point headlands. It was a lovely experience and I look forward to doing it again.

the kids were eager and enthused. The crew were very good and accommodating. They took their time and no one felt rushed. A fun trip
