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.

Person giving commentary throughout the two hours was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the dolphins and whales. Liked seating arrangement at tables. Sat across from a delightful family from CT. Took Captain Dave safari last year - liked this much better - really liked friendly seating arrangements and just overall character of boat and captain. I live in Dana Point and take friends/relatives on these safaris. From now on I would only use this particular boat/service.

Disappointing.

This was 2nd time we went. This boat had less outside seating and less interior space as well. We saw 1 whale, at a distance - disappointing.

My husband & I are locals who never took advantage of this wonderful resource right on our own backyard until this past week. We had a wonderful time on the whale watching tour and found our captain to be so interesting and very knowledgeable about the sea life in the area. The boat ride was great and the crew were friendly & helpful. We plan to come back again as soon as possible to see more whales and dolphins!

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.

We saw lots of dolphins and were told which kind they were and the routines of the dolphins. The boat was very clean and the crew very knowledgeable. Well worth the money..

We had a good time. Did not see whales, but did see a lot of dolphins. Unfortunately the weather was not good - raining lightly - but we enjoyed our trip anyway. Everyone was pleasant and boat was right on time!!

Fantastic cruise
Wed, Sep 5, 12   12:00 PM jyBishop Female 70+ Local Family With Children
Wonderful, informative cruise. Watching the blue whales was well worth the cost of the cruise. The Captain's running comnmentary on the lives and activities of the blue whales made the whales even more impressive. Would take the cruise again anytime.

We saw ''em, we chased 'em - the pictures I took just didn't convey the excitement we felt in seeing those big, bad boys. You had to be there!
