The fishing was extremely slow. We were given sardines instead of anchovies for bait but I dont feel like the tackle provided with the rental rods was suited for the larger more active bait fish. as a result we had more tangled lines with other fishermen on the boat and therefore less fishing. I had to cut my line re-rig up my pole several times due to tangles. Others in my group had the same propblem.

Our Day On the Boat

I took my son and 2 other kids from our youth group at church. we had a ball. The kids learned alot. the captain was very informative. and made sure that we were able to get great picks of the Whales and dolphins. The boat wasn't to crowded so there was plenty of places to view everything. Great and memorible trip.

I am a leader of a youth group and we where in the process of biking down to Oceanside. I thought it would be fun to take them whale watching as a break from biking. It was very exciting when we left the harbor. Right away we saw bottle nose dolphins, but that is where the excitement ended until the very end. We came across a pod of Rizo dolphins. This was kind of cool, but not enough to change the attitude of the boys. They where really hoping to see a whale or two. I told them that it was at the end of the season and that 's the gamble you take. I would encourage others to take the same gamble, but do it earlier in the season.

Thanks for the adventure.

Great Trip and Beautiful Sunset!

What a lovely trip! It gets cold on the boat, so have very warm jackets/hats/gloves ready. We saw a lot of dolphins (three different kinds), and also saw two sea lions.

What a fun way to spend the afternoon, and the view from the ocean was gorgeous. I would definitely go again!

We were lucky that the weather was perfect, the sea calm as glass, dolphins by the dozens jumping alongside the boat, several whales of different types surfaced & a couple "fluked". The guides were great spotters.

The crew took time locating whales and dolphins for us. They wanted us to have the best experience possible. They believe in what they do and it shows. It was a treat for us to share their enthusiasm.

It was a great experience for the whole family. A beautiful ride, a talented crew, not overly crowded, and we saw lots of whales. I highly recommend.

I love fishing, and going to Dana Point is the best spot to do it. The crew is very nice, and the other fisherman on the boat are friendly and great to talk to. The only drawback is the price of beer, $3.50 for a can of coors light is a bit extreme.

great fun but they needed music

On a whim my boyfriend and i decided to go sport fishing. we live about two hours away and the drive was great , no traffic. when we arrived everyone was very helpful and congenial. the crew was cordial and knew what they were doing. captain took us to several spots, however the fishing that day was poor and most of the fish caught were undersized. Not the captains fault. I wish though that they would have had a classic rock station platying on the boat so as to make the lulls in waiting for fish to bite a little more of a party or vacation-y atmosphere. otherwise it was fun and not too expensive..$106 for two people rentals included... food was great on the boat "clemete" Marcus the galley cook/hookbaiter/ kelp master was an excellent chef and they had a complete tasty hot breakfast and hot lunch available. nice that they tallied your purchases and you could settle up at the end..all in all it was a pleasant experience and we will go again hopefully when the bigger fish are biting.
