Great experience. Was rainy most of the time but not bad. We were lucky enough to see several whales and tons of dolphins.

Slow day of fishing but a good time.

It was a slow day of fishing after the rain storm blew through the area the captain did his best to locate fish. Caicos were biting, but not for me. The crew was courteous lots of new fishermen got the help they needed on the boat was pleasent even though I did not catch anything.

Thoroughly Enjoyed the Trip

I highly recommend this excursion. The staff worked hard to make this a memorable experience, finding dolphins, sea lions, and even whales. We left promptly from the port, so be sure to arrive early. Seating vs standing - I chose to stand for the entire trip, but comfortable seating inside or outside is an option. Viewing from all sides is possible. I am from the midwest so this was a unique experience! I would do this again.

This was a wonderful trip we purchased for my husband for Father's day. Our group of 8 from age nine to 39 had a wonderful time. Great fishing with some wonderful people. The boat staff was amazing as were the employees in the store! Highly recommended.

Deep sea fishing
Thu, Jul 16  10:00 AM Janetparker Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I didn't realize there would be 100 people on this trip, which made the fishing frustrating and unsuccessful. For the amount of money I spent for 3 of us, next time I would spend a little more to charter a boat.

Great experience, great crew and captain
Thu, Jul 16  10:00 AM tmonee Unspecified 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Was a little concerned because of some recent yelp reviews about the sum fun 3/4 day. I ended up doing the 1/2 day trip just to avoid that crew and ended up on a very packed boat with 90 people. I was leery from the beginning with that many people but as it turned out the crew managed it very well. One thing they did was hold people to their fishing spots and rotate them every so often. I have been on a bunch of open boats and they never actually do that, so it was refreshing. Sure you get a bad spot some of the time, but so does everyone else and you also get a really good spot you wouldn't have otherwise had. Our boat didn't catch a ton of fish but the crew was great, the captain did a great job. Highlight was that I caught a 30lb yellowtail and the deckhand coached me through it. Excellent job all around. I was with my father in law and little brother and they all said they would come back, and they didn't catch hardly anything, so there you have it.

Great time with whales, dolphins and sea lions!
Wed, Jul 15  5:00 PM graycar2000 Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We considered going to a park with sea animals then decided to try and see the animals in their natural habitat instead. My wife and i loved it! Our kids ages 2 to 12 loved it as well. It was the highlight of our trip to California! We saw a good size pod of dolphins and a blue whale! I would recommend this to anybody who asks what there is to do in SOCAL outside of parks and beaches. Its a peaceful calm and fun experience! The captain of the boat was informative and this was great to learn about the animals that we were seeing. Don't pass up the chance to see the whales at Dana Point! Dana Wharf is great! AFter the 2 hours cruise we got some ice cream for the family. Well worth every penny!

Mixed thoughts
Tue, Jul 14  10:00 AM LouiseGirls Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We saw a huge pod of dolphins and a blue whale - unfortunately the captain kept steering the boat in such a way that if say on the left of the boat it was very hard to catch a glimpse of the what - which we stayed with and watched for about an hour. That said the captain was very knowledgeable

Enjoyable Day Whale and Dolphin Watching
Sat, Jul 11  2:00 PM Langholz Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
The boat was clean and the crew was very nice. We did see some whales and dolphins on the trip. This outfit was about $20 less than the others. I can't rate the others since I went on this one but I would certainly use this outfit again.
