Great time on the water!

We really enjoyed the trip. We didn't see any whales, but there were plenty of dolphins and they were racing with the catamaran and keeping us entertained. Our captain was great, too. He explained about the different kinds of dolphins we were seeing and told us a lot of cool facts about their behavior. We would definately recommend this tour and would do it again sometime ourselves.

We had a great trip! Saw lots of dolphins. Crew was very informative and enthusiastic. I took my 85 yr. old father with me and he had never seen anything like that before. Excellent Ocean Adventure!

Really Fun Activity

It ended up being a windy and choppy ride. We didn't see any whales, but we did see a small group of dolphins that swam along side the boat. We could hear them squealing to each other because they were so close. but, because we only saw a handful of dolphins during the 2-hr ride, our entire boat got our tickets back to return free-of-charge for another ride. People running the boat-ride were very nice, Will definitely go back.

Trip was awesome. Both kids caught their first fish which was great. Crew was great and the people at the office were great. In fact I had actually booked on the wrong day (my fault), but since there was room they let us go.

Great crew

The crew on this boat was great. They were right on the spot every time a fish was caught, took if off hook, measured it for legal size, constantly helped especially newcomers to ocean fishing.

My wife's first fishing trip!
Fri, Sep 17, 10   10:00 AM geraldhonn Male 40-49 Unspecified Family Without Children
Perfect day on the "Sum Fun"! It was a great trip, a little short on catching fish because of cooler water. The captian moved several times on the look for more fish, he did a great job! The crew was very helpful with plenty of squid and live anchovies. They were always one step in front of any trouble. My wife had a great time and wants to go back when ever we can (works for me!) Thanks for a great trip!

needed a larger boat for the # of people

35 (approx) people.....and bait boxes......people casting lines and catching other people's hair in the hook and bait. Personally I think it was too many people in a smallish boat.

I am a huge whale fan and I saw an ad in the San Clemente paper while visiting my aunt and uncle. My mom was visting with me and we were looking for things to do, when I came across your ad (ad was for 1/2 price except on tuesdays - not realizing that Tuesdays were your discount day). She was interested and we went online to look up more infomration on your website. We then discovered your half price Tuesdays and were sold! Buying online was very easy and finding the building to get the tickets was also very easy. We have been to Dana Point Harbor before, so it was very easy to find our way around. We loved the boat we had, especially the lookout area where we could have our own titanic moment. I think half the fun of the trip was being on the bow of the boat crashing over the waves. It was even fun when we got drenched from the high waves. We had great people on the tour who had as much fun getting we as we did. The two guys captaining the boat were great and had fun with us. It was so memorable, that I honestly can't believe I had never even thought to do this before. It was something that I might never have seen before, blue whales (we saw 2 blue whales and lots of dolphins that night), I felt so special! I definately want to come out again when I come back to visit. It is a great price for an extradordinary experience. We had a blast and recommend it to everyone!

First, there is no way to cancel and not to get refund for it. There is no other sports fishing like this other than Dana Wharf. Second, the boat was staying same place even there were no fish to catch. I never seen other place like this. So that people get bored for not catching any fish. Dana Wharf, they have to do something better than that. I would not go there any more.

No whales seen but tried hard

the captain did his best to find us a whale but no luck this day. He did put us in several dolphin pods with many baby dolphins to watch. Sunfish, anchovies, sunshine and good smooth ride still made it a good day to be on the water. and they made a good grilled cheese sandwich too!

The weather ands sea conditions wre perfect
Thu, Sep 9, 10   10:00 AM minicooper Male 60-69 Local Family With Children
I took two of my grandsons out . The weather and sea conditions couldn't have been better. The captain & crew noted that the fish counts had been down this season, but hoped that this trip we be better. They were right, plenty of bass were picked up (many keepers) . We had only 26 people on board, so the fishing was quite tolerable. We had plenty of fresh bait and squid, but I was happy to see many fish caught on jigs and swim baits. My grandsons had a nice time, although they only got a couple of fish, but were delighted in seeing all the fish brought on board. We'll be going out again, hoping this time we'll do better ourselves. The crew was helpful and supportive with the younger crowd. The only thing I would wish for is that the guys fishing would not stay in "their" spots, as it seemed the regulars seemed to hold on the stern, most often leaving their rods in their position. It would have been better if they rotated all positions, and not allowing to leave any rods on the rails. Otherwise, a very nice trip!

Very enjoyable

Great boat ride. Crew made an effort to make the trip enjoyable eventhough we didn't see any whales. They went out of the way to stay with a large pod of dolphins eventhough we got back late. Wonderful time on the water!

Would go again.

Worth the price of admission

I took my 83 year old mother and my 42 year old cousin and we enjoyed the relaxing and scenic 2+ hour trip. We did not see any whales but we saw dolphins and seals. The skipper was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of information about the area and the marine wildlife.

The half-price Tuesday was well worth it. I am sure I will go again.
