The captain was fabulous
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Tue, Jun 23, 09   5:00 PM kimhabre Female 50-59 Combination Family With Children
We were only 15 minutes from the harbor when we spotted the first whale. The captain explained what we were seeing and stayed in the area until it "sounded". We witnessed the fluke as it dove down. Then we sailed to another spot where there were hundreds of dolphins swimming and jumping. They continued quite some time and the whole time the captain was sharing information. This was the most awesome experience and even now I get goose bumps! I had read about this activity prior to arriving in California from Oregon. I wanted to make a memory with my niece and nephew, this excursion provided that. On the way back into the harbor we spotted another variety of dolphin , sea lions and another whale. What an incredible experience.

Thank you so much. This was beyond my expectations.

Great adventure!

Although I live locally my dad and his wife were in town from Wisconsin. It was a great activity both for them being out of town and for my 3 year old daughter. We saw a ton of dolphins, 2 whales (which I wasn't anticipating) as well as the seals, not to mention the beautiful landscape. I would recommend the cruise for both locals and out of towners!

Smoking crew ruined it !!!
Tue, Jun 23, 09   12:00 PM Hnchao Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
The crew smoked non-stopped! I couldn't really enjoy fishing when i had to move around avoiding the smoke, even when they were helping you w/ the fish, they smoked. Wish there was a non-smoking boat. Would go again if there was.

Excellent time, well run
Mon, Jun 22, 09   10:00 AM frankgauer Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Th entire fishing trip was very well handled. They knew all the questions, and had reasonable, understandable responses to them. Got through the day with no issues at all because the folks that run the activity are so well prepared.

I invited my Great Granddaughter to go fishing (9Yrs. old.) We both had a great time.Your crew were very helpful and actually the other guests were also friendly and helpful. My Great Granddaughter now knows how to bait the hook! She of course would love to go again. Thank you for a wonderful day.

Reel Fun is disgrace for family activities
Sun, Jun 21, 09   12:45 PM elenagross Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
Dear Sir/Madam,

The above mentioned trip which was advertised as a fishing trip where children can join in for free (at the 12.45 time) is certainly not suitable for children if the Reel Fun is used.

There is no shade, no seating, the food was severly under cooked and it's certainly not geared towards providing an enjoyable experience for children. We were lucky as most of the time my children were asleep.

It is only geared for fishing enthusiasts who don't mind the above mentioned lack of comfort. However, since the same price is charged for this boat as all other boats that address and provide the items lacking, the Reel Fun should either be retired, or not be used for family trips at all, and the ticket price for those individuals who want to use this boat should drastically be reduced.

Great mini ocean adventure for the entire family
Sun, Jun 21, 09   11:00 AM AlisonRose Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
Loved having a marine biologist on board. I appreciated them taking the time to locate the pod of dolphins so we had an extra exciting few hours at sea. Great staff too.

Excellent trip
Sat, Jun 20, 09   1:00 PM Sjhopson Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
We were impressed with the boat, VERY clean.

Left on time

Crew showed great concern for the passengers by really trying to find a local whale (it moved out of the area, we saw no whales)

Even without whales and with a gloomy day, we had alot of fun.

The Marine Biologist was very informative too.

TOO Crowded
Fri, Jun 19, 09   10:00 AM ash101 Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
Deck hands were great! But the boat was too crowded to enjoy fishing. I would recommend a higher price per person and reduce the amount of anglers!

My husband, grandson and myself had a great time even thou we didn't bring any fish home, we had to throw two back because of being under size, we all ejoyed the day. And the crew was great ready to help when they could. We will do it again.

Early Fathers Day
Tue, Jun 16, 09   10:00 AM jbranske Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I took my 5 year old son fishing for the first time on this trip. While we both had a good time together and we were able to bond in a way that we have not before, the one thing that lacked was the fish. They were not bitting that day. I wish you could predict the fish bitting but you can't. All in all we enjoyed our day together and we will be doing it again and hopefully the fish decided to show up.

Amazing and refreshing
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sat, Jun 13, 09   5:00 PM jwelemental Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The ride out to sea was really awesome. A deep respect for seafarers and all the marine life we need to protect was gained. I'd recommend this experience to everyone.
