Where's the fish
Thu, Aug 25, 11   10:00 AM jdurandesign Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Crew and day were great, but no fish. This is my second trip out of Dana Point and we only caught two. Out of a group of 40, the boat was lucky to catch 15

The trip was extremely enjoyable
Tue, Aug 23, 11   5:00 PM pchrystal Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The trip was handled with professionalism and enthusiasm. We actally had the opportunity to see two whales and the captain tried very hard to posiiton the vessel so we had photo opportuntiies. I was able to get some excellent photos of the whale and very much enjoyed seeing the dolphins and sea lion.

Good trip! Would definitely do again!

I would certainly reccomend this outfit and would definitely do this trip again. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The boat was clean as well as the bathroom. We did a half day trip that started at 6:30 am and therefore avoided a crowded boat. Fishing conditions that day were not the best, but the captain did manage to put us on some sand bass and calico bass where I was able to land about 5-6 fish and make the trip worthwhile in respect to fishing. The staff serves up an excellent breakfast burrito, breakfast sandwich or a breakfast plate, and is very reasonably priced on all food and beverages on the boat. All in all, good times, I am glad I booked this trip while visiting from Texas and would not hesitate to do so again.

FANTASTIC VOYAGE!
Wed, Aug 17, 11   2:00 PM justkiki2 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We had heard about the whales being sited in and around Dana Point, and had heard good things about Dana Wharf, so we decided to book our trip! I loved the fact that there was a covered/ wind-blocked area to get out of the elements, and a spacious open deck for passengers of all ages! The crew knew exactly where to take us, and were very knowledgeable about the species of marine life around the area. We were not disappointed and had a great time seeing the Blue Whales, several species of dolphin and sea lions basking on a buoy! 2 hours of fun!

tangles
Wed, Aug 17, 11   10:00 AM justinspence Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
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.

Loved the dolphins!
Tue, Aug 16, 11   5:00 PM trudyhanson Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
On our whale watching tour (Aug. 16) we saw two blue whales and a pod of dolphins. My grandchildren loved the dolphins! They were less impressed by the whales--but I think that was because they didn't quite comprehend the size of what they were seeing. The tour guide's commentary was informative. We had a great time.

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

This is the first time for whale watching for my wife and I. I really did not know what to expect since it was out of whale migration season. This was definitely the best part of our vacation. Expecting only 1 or 2 whale sighting, the crew explained how unusual our trip was. We saw 10 or more whales and some very playful dolphins. I have the pictures to prove. A great experience!
