The trip was fantastic! We actually didn't see any whales, but saw a huge pod of probably 500 dolphin which was just as good if not better. The dolphin stayed with the boat for ages. We saw them up close and even got splashed as they leapt into the air, showing off for us. There were alot of moms with babies at their sides which was amazing. At one point the dolphin came across a huge school of sardine and began feeding. Suddenly the air and the water were filled with huge majestic Pelicans and squawking seagulls trying to get in on the action. It made me wish I could go out there every single day. The crew were polite although not too attentive. We were surprised to find out after we departed that the blue whale season was long over, which is not what the web site said. It would have been nice to know that. The captain shared some interesting facts about the animals but I wished he had shared more. The crew seemed busy watching a baseball game on t.v. instead. But all in all it was a wonderful day and for the price you can't beat it. For me it beats a cheeseburger and a movie anyday! I will go again... soon!

Friendly, helpful crew made the fishing enjoyable. We caught enough fish for dinner without landing anything very large. It was winter fishing and we were satisfied with the day. Equipment rented was fine and bait supplied did the tick.

Fishing Day Success!!!

The experience we had on our fishing day in Dana Point was awesome!!! The boat was super clean and accomidating! The crew was so great and helpful! Super nice guys! We had the best time fishing for my hubby's birthday! He loved it....guess it didn't hurt that he caught the biggest fish on the boat and won the jackpot!! Everyone from the check-in counter at Dana Wharf to the Captain on the Reel Fun was amazingly friendly and we would love a repeat of this day soon!! Cheers!!!

The boat had just come back from the 12 o' clock trip. They saw some marine life on that trip and were going to bring us back to that spot. We got lucky and saw a whole pod of dolphins. Hung around them for a while to see the adults and babies alike jump out of the water and swim alongside our vessel. The highlight of the trip was seeing a blue whale 3 times (about 9 minutes apart) and all with a great tail fluke ending. The trip was wrapped up with some sea lions on a floating buoy.

An amazing adventure.

The boat was clean. The crew was very nice and very knowledgeable. We saw 2 different groups of blue whales, a great white shark, and sea lions. We looked for dolphins, but did not find them. The great white shark was playing with the boat. At one point he came straight at us. It was amazing. I brought my parents (both 74) and they were in awe. Was a wonderful experience for them. My mom's only regret was that my sister was not with us to enjoy the experience. I would highly recommend this adventure as well as this crew to everyone I know.

We really enjoyed the trip. The weather was perfect. We saw plenty of common dolphins and finally saw a whale an hour and a half into the trip. He put on a great show for us though. All-in-all, the trip was great!

No Whales, but they made good on their promise

We didn't see any whales, unfortunately, but the merchant does guarantee that if you don't see whales, you will receive free tickets for another tour. We were disappointed that we didn't see them, but are definitely excited to go back again for free to give it another shot! I was glad that they made good on their promise.

Overall, it was fun

We didn't see any whales due to the dense fog. Better to go later in the day I guess. Still, the crew took us into a pod of dolphins which was fun to see.
