1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises

We were able to see around 600 dolphins swim near the boat. Unfortunately it's not whale season just yet, but the dolphins were interesting to see. Also the tour was very informative, the caption knows his mammals! Had a great time!

1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises
Tue, Nov 6, 12   11:00 AM rdavisprof Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
On our ladies getaway this year we decided to take a whale watching tour in California - what a wonderful choice! Our tour guides were informative and helpful and made every effort to ensure we would see something. Although it wasn't technically whale season (Nov 6), we did see a fin whale - awesome. What I liked best though was the school of dolphins they brought us to - that alone was worth it. Rounded out with a sea lion sunning, this trip was fantastic! Even had we not seen any wildlife (how is that possible?), the ride alone would be worth it.

Surfing porpoises were beautiful
1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises

On a beautiful, calm day, the catamaran was very stable (important to me who gets seasick), and very quickly found a fin whale which we watched for quite some time. Then on to a very large pod of porpoises -- perhaps 2000 altogether -- who seemed to enjoy swimming beside us and surfing in the boat's wake. In between, we watched sooty shearwaters who were so full of krill that they couldn't even make it off the water. The naturalist on the boat was very informative, and the trip overall was a great treat.

perfect afternoon boat ride
Sun, Nov 4, 12   2:00 PM Kikosecor Female 20-29 Local Group of Friends
The captain is so knowledgeable and is very well connected amongst boaters in the area - so he was able to listen to the radio to find out exactly where the dolphins and whales were located so that we could go see them. He found a pod of 1800 common dolphins, and it was so breathtaking!

Would definitely do this tour again.

The counter staff was very helpful. I requested that my wife couldn't stand very long and they made the effort to see that we could board first.

The tour was great. i would recomend it for all.

I booked a whale watch trip to get to see whales, in the info they said there would still be some in that time but once in the catamaran they told us there were all gone. If I knew that i wouldnt buy it, i had seen dolphins many times before. I think you should be more honest with your ads.

The trip was nice the catamaran very good and the crew perfect though

Good value if you bring children 14 and under
Sun, Oct 14, 12   12:45 PM fcline Male 50-59 Local Group of Friends
We didn't catch much in the way of fish (about 3 ounces of rock cod filet after the fish was cleaned!) but it was a fun day nonetheless. The entire haul for the boat was skimpy as well. Bass, Sheephead, Rock Cod. The best part of the trip was that each child under 14 years of age (with paid adult) gets free boat ticket, free rod/reel rental, and that child does not need a fishing license! This was an afternoon 1/2 day trip. I would recommend an early morning trip and possibly a 3/4 day trip if you are serious about catching something a little bigger than I did. I brought my own food, so I don't know how good the food was from the boat galley - but it was less expensive than I thought it would be - meals less than $10.00.

Can be better?
Sat, Oct 13, 12   12:00 PM garatli Male 30-39 Local Group of Friends
I been on this same trip before, and unfortunately was not satisfied as the same time. The boat is over crowded and the crow was not very friendly, its like they woke up on the wrong side of the bed. They were not enjoying their job and you could feel that they are there just because they have to be there. Lines get tangled from over filling the boat with people. Fishing wasn't that great also, not a lot of fish was caught, Would I go again? probably not

Captain's knowledge was great. Plus, you could actually understand the loudspeaker (which is a first!) We did not see a whale, but we saw hundreds of dolphins, right next to the boat. Sad about the whale, but the captain could not have been better, plus they gave us the whale ticket to come back and try again another time. Highly recommend. My kids loved just the boat experience, and the dolphins were unbelievable.

Spending a Delightful Day with Grandchildren
Fri, Oct 12, 12   10:00 AM JamesBrawner Male 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
During our family visit together in San Clemente, my two grandchildren, ages 14 & 17, spent a delightful day aboard the Clemente, fishing for Calico Bass, Sheepshead, and Halibut. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, catching several fish and being comfortably well-treated by the Capitain and First Mate of the Clemente. The boat was well-equipped and well-handled so as to enhance our trip. I would recommend this outing to anyone who enjoys the outdoors and spending quality time with family.
