We saw four gray whales, several pods of dolphins, seals and beautiful views. The captain provided lots of interesting facts and did a wonderful job of navigating the beautiful coastline. The catamaran was spacious and made for a smooth ride.

Different venue than I thought

My mistake. I thought I had reserved the Dana Point location at the Institute at the other end of the pier. Fortunately we arrived early enough to still participate as scheduled. No problem with electronic check-in. The crew were very pleasant & professional. Would recommend to all.

Plenty of dolphins.... but no whales! However, we were offered a ticket for another try, but unfortunately, couldn't make that date. We thought that was very fair!

You have to fish a lucky spot or no fish!
Sat, May 3, 14   5:30 PM ANNA92688 Female 20-29 Local Family Without Children
This trip was pretty bad. Slow day of fishing. I did catch 2 red rockfish, but that was it. I have been on the twilight trip before and it was really good that one time. Lots of fish were caught and kept that day, but not this time. Very few fish were caught. It is best to wait until summer, or when fishing picks back up, because it looks like fishing isn't really that great right now. Have fun anyways, we saw a whale, so it wasn't too bad.

Good Senior Citizen outing

Nice tour and friendly crew. PA system didn't work well so we couldn't hear much narrative. No whales this trip but Captain did find nice pod of dolphins and extended trip to view. I think average tourist would enjoy more narrative including coastline points of interest when things are slow.

Fantastic!
Tue, Apr 22, 14   12:00 PM PollyZ Female 60-69 Local Family Without Children
My sister is visiting from Toronto, Canada and whale watching is always on her "must do" list. We had a terrific afternoon; followed a grey whale mother and calf at a safe distance so as not to spook them. The mother breached four or five times, coming straight up out of the water and the youngster copied her To round it off the mother flipped her tail out of the water (fluted?) three or four times. We were both thrilled to see it AND it was half-price Tuesday! Thank you!!

Fish bite at night!
Sat, Apr 19, 14   5:30 PM ANNA92688 Female 20-29 Local Family Without Children
The fish really bite at night! Huge sand bass were caught! I caught two and my mom caught one. I also caught two treefish. Really good eaten. That day there were 20 sand bass caught, some rockfish, and a few calico bass. Check it out and give it a try! Good bites on squid. Fish on this trip or the 3/4 day trip, because the regular 1/2 day trips are not catching anything. Twilight at 5:30pm( this trip) is a good one to go onto. Good luck catching fish, and have fun fishing!

Nice trip without sightings.
Tue, Apr 8, 14   10:00 AM howiee9 Male 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Ticketing was easy, the boat was comfortable, the crew courteous and professional. We did not, however see anything but birds and other boats during the entire trip. Therefore everyone received their ticket back for use at another time, anytime. We plan to try again next year.
