Fog, one whale tail, but still fun!
Sat, Mar 20, 10   4:00 PM Pfafflin Female 20-29 Combination Other
We made a date with the whale watching tour for a wedding party. It ended up getting foggy just as we went out on the ocean....we did see one whale before the fog got too think.

They did give us Whale Vouchers to come back again due to poor whether. We will definitely be back! Still had a lot of fun, good company, including the crew....made the trip memorable.

Thanks!

Not worth it!
Sat, Mar 6, 10   12:00 PM Lisa714 Female 20-29 Combination Group of Friends
As much as I was elated about going out to sea and seeing these amazing sentient beings, the entire excursion was not worth a penny. We got to see one whale for a brief 3 seconds; the boat ride was AGONIZING...imagine standing and balancing yourself and shielding yourself from waves splashing on deck in March (not warm weather at all) for 2 hours while trying not to vomit from sea sickness - yes even those that were Dramamine'd up felt sick. I think about half the people on the vessel were holding their heads from the rough boat ride. It was my group's (party of 4) first time doing a whale watching excursion but alas, it was best known as the torture excursion. No consolation t-shirt and/or sweater given out once we made it back to land, no souvenirs, nothing. As we all stumbled off the boat, I heard one passenger say "Those were 2 hours I'll never get back." This would be a good "experience" for those with stomachs of steal who want to see who can outlast their friend’s without getting sick.

Wonderful Experience!
Fri, Feb 26, 10   12:00 PM KTeaRoses Female 20-29 Combination Group of Friends
We were lucky enough to see a school of dolphins (about 500!) playing in the ocean. There were even baby dolphins leaping into the air. What fun! The crew worked hard to find a whale but when they couldn't, they issued a "whale check" to every passenger for a free cruise. The boat was comfortable and the snack booth has everything you need. It was a fun-filled afternoon and I'm very excited to go back and trade in my whale check soon. A big thank you to the crew!

Reel Fun

First time for me to tryout my sea legs. Booking the trip was a breeze, fifteen min. to get the gear and license and we were on the boat. The crew was great, if the fish were slow on one reef, we were off to the next. Had alot of fun for a winter day of fishing, hope to come back and try to land some yellow fin and halibet later on.

Twilight Squid Fishing & 1/2 day trip
Thu, Feb 11, 10   5:30 PM kspeidel Female 40-49 Combination Family Without Children
We went out squid fishing 2 nights after they had their final catch of squid. The captain made the decision to take us out farther where they could possibly be found since the close spots had been exhausted. It appears the squid have headed out. No squid were caught but we had a great evening The captain and the team gave it a good try for us.

We went out a few days later on a 1/2 day boat and caught a lot of fish! Sand bass, calico, bass, sheep head, baracuda, halibut, lobster etc. Fun!!! There was always a "fish on" for someone on the boat.

The staff is so wonderful and friendly and helpful.

Excellent Trip
Wed, Nov 11, 09   1:00 PM sallyeastwoo Female Unspecified Combination Family With Children
The catamaran was clean, spacious, new and fast. The crew were warm and welcoming as well as knowledgeable about the whales, dolphins, birds and other wildlife. As we were heading back to port somewhat disappointed that we hadn't seen anything, the captain suddenly noticed two blue whales and we turned back around to follow them. The crew went out of their way to make sure we saw as much as possible, even though we were slightly over our time on the trip. No one cared. We were just thrilled to have seen the whales!

Thoroughly recommended and I would take this trip again.

Weather wasn't good, so half off offer offered
Sun, Oct 4, 09   12:45 PM zenabeana Female 40-49 Combination Family With Children
My son and I decided to go fishing, we decided to go to DanaPoint. The weather didn't cooperate, but the captain was trying his best to give the patroons a good trip, but decided it would be better to come in earlier. The company offered a half off offer on another trip. Since the weather is a very influential part on a sea trip, this was a very good and fair choice. The next time, I want to go on a trip like this, I definately will keep them in mind.

Gear the trip for rookies

Two things:

We spent about a fourth of the trip in a rough patch of water. Myself and few others got sick. Once we moved to smoother waters, I had a great time.

The experienced fisherman were allowed to hog the back of the boat. I felt that it was a good old boys' club with these guys and the crew.

That's why I rated the experience a neutral.

Thanks, Randy
