Great whale watching!
Thu, Jun 10, 10   12:00 PM tompkins Male 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Great whale watching trip! Captain was very knowledgeable and we followed and watched the whale for more than an hour. Seas were calm, weather beautiful, and the boat very comfortable.

No whales or dolphins
Mon, Apr 19, 10   12:00 PM TomParlett Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Though it was a beautiful day, there were no whales or dolphins to be seen. We were given a rain check for a future trip but being from quite a distance away we can not use them.

The boat we were on is a party fishing boat (that I fished on about 25 years ago) so there is no outside seating, other than on the bait tanks. Inside there is bench seating with limited visibility though the windows due to the bench seats being so low. It is not the ideal vessel for comfort while trying to view sea life.

First visit to the west coast

Nice boat. Clean, well kept, friendly captain and crew, saw whales and lots of dolphins. Actually went two days in a row. The first day was great and when they handed us a 1/2 price offer to go again....we signed up for the next day!

Enjoyed seeing the dolphins
Fri, Jun 27, 08   5:00 PM TomMalik Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Our family had a great time. We went to seaworld the previous day and were looking forward to seeing sealife in their natural habitat. We were in the water about 20 minutes when we ran into a huge pod of common dolphins. We saw pods of risso and more common dolphins. It was amazing watching the dolphins swim all around the boat. We were down on the front deck and could see the dolphins racing on the side and crossing the boats front bow. We were hoping to see the blue whale but no such luck. On the way back there was a beautiful view of the coastline and sailboats. We did a lot of different things on our vacation but the ocean cruise was the most entertaining.

A great time and educational too!

We had a wonderful time, the boat was nice and new, the staff were very friendly and incredibly knowledgable. I will definitely be back, and will recommend it to others! We saw a few different whales as well as two pods of dolphins and sea lions, what an adventure!

A good day
Sat, Apr 4, 09   12:00 PM tomjef Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The weather was good and the accomodations were good also. The staff was helpful in setting up the proper gear and bait. Although the catch of fish was minimal, there was a grey whale pup that was seen, dolphins, and an awnry sea lion (I expect he was catching fish), All in all a good trip and reasonably priced. I expect to go on another sea fishing adventure this summer when the fish are a little more plentiful.

Great guys on the boat
Sun, Nov 11, 07   10:00 AM tomhall4255 Male Under 20 Local Group of Friends
My son and his friend went out fishing and enjoyed themselves. Caught alot of fish early, then nothing the last couple hours, but that's fishing (otherwise they'd call it catching!) I've been out many times with these folks and they're always friendly and helpful. A fun time!

Really enjoyed this tour. Would do it again.
Tue, Jul 21  12:00 PM TomFigliolin Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Really enjoyed this trip out whale watching. Had a whale come within a few feet of the boat and was able to get great pictures of it. The captain of the boat was really knowledgeable. I will do this again the next time I am in Dana Point.

MY SON HAD FUN ANC CAUGHT HIS FIRST BARRACUDA
Sun, Jul 17, 11   12:45 PM TomEhinger23 Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
WE HAD A GOOD TIME. WISH WE CAUGHT MORE FISH. THE DECKHANDS WERE A GREAT HELP. THE ONLY NEGATIVE THING I CAN SAY IS THE TRIP ENDED EARLY. WE LEFT THE DOCK AT 12;45 PM AND BACK AT THE DOCK AT 5;00 PM. I THOUGHT THE TRIP WAS FROM 12;30 TO 5;45 PM. OTHERWISE IT WAS A FUN EXPERIENCE FOR MY SON. WE WILL PROBABLY GO AGAIN.
