Must be an advanced fisherman.

This trip is not worth the money. You must be an experienced fisherman to catch anything off these boats. I purchased tickets for myself, my son, and my niece and nephew. Our group did not catch one single fish. The poles they rented us were incapable of casting, and you absolutely had to have a pole that you could cast. I had asked several times when I was inquiring about the trip if I needed to upgrade my poles and I was told no. The boat went maybe 100 yards off the shore and that is were we fished from, I would have been far better off renting poles and going to the beach to fish. This was an entire waste of money.

Great for locals and visitors!

Our family from NYC came for a visit and chose to go whale watching over a trip to Sea World. We were all thrilled! We had an incredible time! The captain and crew were teriffic and really engaging. Not only did we all learn a lot, we were lucky enough to observe Blue Whales (up-close) and Common Dolphins in their natural environment. Captivating. Seriously.

The crew was tracking several whales at the same time and extended our cruise by at least 15 minutes (at no charge) so we could all observe a bit longer. I would definitely do it again and highly recommend to locals and visitors.

Spotted white-sided dolphins; a pod of approximately 100 commn dolphins; sea lions galore and two 70' fin whales. Watching the fin whale surface and dive was amazing.

Search for a Blue Whale
Thu, Feb 28, 13   12:00 PM ChrisClawson Male 70+ Combination Individual
A most enjoyable two, plus hours cruising and searching rewarded all aboard to witness two pods and Gray going North and a single Gray heading south. I saw in the papers that a Blue Whale was spotted several days before and was in hohpes to get a rare sight. Regardless, It was a most enjoyable day.

There was a long wait before the boat returned from an earlier trip and it wold have been kind if someone would keep the passengers informed as to the arrival time expected. We assumed boadring at 11:30, but the ship did not arrive in port until noon.

We enjoyed our experience with this tour group even though we saw no whales. We had a great experience with the dolphins and the feeding birds. The crew was helpful, without intruding.

It was a beautiful sunny day. During our two hour cruise we saw a whale and a large school of dolphins. For a while the dolphins ran alongside our boat. Crew were helpful and friendly. Lots of fun!

1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises
Tue, Oct 2, 12   2:00 PM Sandrasturla Female 60-69 Combination Group of Friends
We had friends visiting us in San Clemente from the mid-west and we thought that a good outing with them would be a whale watch cruise. We enjoyed the cruise just as much as our friends did. The captain and crew were friendly but professional. They wanted us to have a good time and see some sea life. The weather was gorgeous, the sea was glassy and we saw several different groups of dolphins and a whale! The time passed quickly and before we knew it the 2 hours were over. We will be returning.

The birds ruin the experience.

Three of us did this same activity a couple years ago & it was wonderful. There were so many pelicans etc this time that it wasn't nearly as much fun. We probably won't go again because of this.

Amazing whales!
Mon, Aug 20, 12   12:00 PM Syturner1 Female 60-69 Combination Group of Friends
The boat ride was so delightful, we would have been happy without even seeing whales. But wow did we ever see whales! Up close and personal as they circled the boat and performed in front of us. The guide was terrific and enthusiastic about finding whales. The entire boat cheered him. We will definitely go again!

I was amazed by the blue whale sightings and accuracy of the capitan - I honestly wasn't expecting to see a whale and certainly not 3 times up close, so that was awesome - the dolphins and sealions were an added bonus too. we did the trip for the kids, but think the adults might have been even more excited by the spouting whales! awesome trip - highly recommend!

A very disappointing experience!
Thu, Aug 2, 12   10:00 AM mtambakeras Male 60-69 Combination Family With Children
It was impossible to enjoy the fishing while constantly trying to avoid the many pelicans surrounding the boat trying to steal our bait or take our fish. They were there for the entire trip. We spent most of our time dodging the pelicans or getting our lines untangled from the birds or from each other. Also the younger members of the crew were either surly or too inexperienced. Most of the fish were caught by experienced locals who new how to cast far, dodge the birds or untangle their lines quickly.
