It was the first time on the water for my grand-daughters age 6 and 7. they had a great time. The crew was very professional and helpful. My grand-daughters and

son-in-law especially enjoyed the great bugers.

thanks for the memories

I booked the trip knowing that fishing would be questionable. Your web site held true and that was OK. My son's had never been on the ocean fishing and it was worth the looks on there face's. We will be back....

Thanks

Even though we didn't see any actual whales, we did see plenty of dolphins and sea lions. The kids loved it!

The staff was friendly and helpful. The fishing was slow due to the weather and they tried to get us to better fishing. All in our group caught at least one fish, just not big enough to keep.

Whale Watching / Dolphins
Tue, Mar 24, 09   4:00 PM tschenk Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We are from Wisconsin and purchased tickets in advance. This worked very well.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we were forced to cancel our 1200 reservation, but were able to quickly reschedule to the 1600 time slot by going online.

The cruise was very nice, even though we did not see any whales. We were given the replacement tickets for a later date. (I'm not sure when we would use them.)

Overall, still worth the trip!

Thanks!!!

The boat captains were helpful, friendly, and focused on finding sea life for our entertainment. There was plenty of room on the boat and the experience was really fun for all of us.

disappointed

Didn't catch any fish. Didn't even see dolphins or whales. Of course the ocean is beautiful and relaxing, but it was an expensive fishing trip for our group, and we were very disappointed.

Whale watch tour
Sun, Mar 22, 09   10:00 AM sydedwards Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
The 10-12pm Whale watch tour on Sunday, March 22 should have been canceled due to stormy weather and we should have gotten our money back.

We saw no whales and the boat ride was very turbulent causing sea sickness.

Upon realizing this the Dana Point whale watch tour canceled the remaining tours for the day.

Not satisfactory.

The cruise was pleasant and the boat was very clean. The crew was also very friendly and helpful. We didn't see any whales but we did see dolphins and sea lions.

All in all it was a very pleasant way to spend 2 hours .

fantastic but short
Sat, Mar 21, 09   2:00 PM Marqueta Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
We all really enjoyed the event the weather was great and the tour guide was quite informative.

we did not see any whales but the dolphins were great.

The only thing was that the tour is spose to be 2 hours , we departed after 2PM and returned before 4PM, so it was hour and half, instead of two, it could of been little longer.

defenatly would recommend to friends and will do it again, if you won't raise the fee and not keep it short.

Thank you

Lots of Dolphins - Great Boat

We had a great time. George (in the galley) made my wife and daughter feel very welcome. My wife says that he "makes a mean burger". We didn't see any whales, but did see lots of dolphins and sea lions.

Missed The Whales
Sat, Mar 21, 09   2:00 PM vpaeplow Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
First I want to say my children consisted of 17-22, 3 of them. It was very cold and windy and were very disappointed that they did not see any whales. We did see sealions and black and white dolphins, and the gray flipper like dolphins. Our guide kept referring to the few sitings we had as the kind you would see in sea world.....Well I don't think that was necessary, due to the amount we paid we could of gone to sea world and saw many more things including the above.

There just need to be a strong statement that whales are a treat for the tour, not a given. As long as you see dolphins there is no refund for the ticket, so just beware. If you see a whale consider yourself lucky, but if you want to see some dolphins and maybe some sea lions, and if your lucky to have a beautiful day, it is a great trip. The Chef on board makes delicious hamburgers fyi.

Great cruise for family
Sat, Mar 21, 09   1:00 PM Mitziplatts Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We didn't see any whales but lots of dolfins playing with the boat. The crew was great lots of information given and spent their time really looking for the whales and made sure we got to see the dolfins up close. We also saw sealions. My daughters really enjoyed it even though it was a bit cool (weather).

Although we enjoyed the day we were disappointed that we did not see any whales. I tried to talk to one of the staff and ask questions but he was very short with me. I am not sure if I would go again. We did enjoy the dolphins.
