Improve the website
Mon, Aug 10, 15   6:30 AM Bkoo29 Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
I thought I was getting on the sum fun because they operate most of the halfdays. On the zerve site the boat names are not revealed and I ended up with Dana pride not by choice. I took my nephew on his first Sportfishing trip and we make the best of it. But the staff was below average. Capt wasn't really looking hard for fish. Make like 2 stops and called it a day. I didn't see a lot of chumming and the deckhands were more interested in fishing themselves. Love the sum fun crew bc they are more engaging and looks for fish all day. Also ask if we wanted to put out fish on ice. One request is on the website you should post which boat you are getting on.

Great times with your grandson

Great to see how your grandchild experiences how to fish. Most people refer to it as, on the job training. The deck help were quick to help in setting up your reel and helping in anyway they could and were polite.

Not too much fish / captain not friendly
Sun, Aug 9, 15   5:30 PM pelroy08 Male 40-49 Local Group of Friends
I have taken several of these fishing trips from Dana Point. This was the least amount of fish caught as a total boat. My friends said the captain was not friendly - overall a bust in terms of catching fish.

Did not see any whales, asking for tips not ok
Sat, Aug 8, 15   12:00 PM andrewadlen Male 40-49 Local Unspecified
I understand that whales are not always available to be seen, but being bombarded for tips was unacceptable! If I feel you deserve a tip, I will tip you. If you basically demand it, you'll never get it and never get my business again

Good time
Sat, Aug 8, 15   6:30 AM JGoodreau Female 50-59 Local Family With Children
Crew was very helpful especially detangling us! A little hard to cast with so many people for an inexperienced fisherman. Wish we had caught something but one guy on the boat caught a 20-25 lb yellowfin. It was beautiful to see up close. Will go again but try the 3/4 day for better odds at catching something to bring home.

Terrible Trip
Fri, Aug 7, 15   5:30 PM Robpask Male 20-29 Local Group of Friends
This company packs you on the boat like sardines with no room to even cast you're line. Spent most of the trip untangling line as everyone's live bait tangles together. Also no mention of lifejackets or telling people not to throw garbage and cigarette butts in the ocean. We also didn't catch any fish. They did however mention several times they accept tips. A joke and disgusting with no respect for the ocean.

Overall not a good trip, although most conditions were beyond the control of the staff.....bad fishing, terrible chop and current....just seems to me that what they can control, they should have, especially with their experience. I'm referring in this case to the crowd on the boat. In my opinion, 60 is way too many to actively fish on that boat. Elbow to elbow, tangled lines, etc. Sure the revenue is greater, and a few more lines in the water, but very very uncomfortable and aggravating.

Excellent experience

We went out August 5th, and Whales were not found, but we were informed before departing on a notice board that the Blue Whales were maybe not in the area. We saw dolphins and had great fun and all went well, and dolphins were abundant and close. The boat & crew were excellent, and I imagine they couldn't have done more for the guests on board.
