Didn't see anything...no whales..no dolphins...nothing. Gave us tickets to come again. Not sure if we will. Don't have that much free time to waste...nice boat ride though.

The boat ride was great, unfortunatly due to weaher conditions the sea was rough and we didn't see any whales or dolphins etc. The company gave us back our tickets to use another day.

The Whales didn't get the memo. They were nowhere to be seen. Cpt. Todd made the "hunt" very enjoyable . Looking forward to our next adventure.

Morning and late afternoon, but not night

Sum Fun was too small a boat and was too crowded. Several people got sick, at night. Then, especially when the boat begins to rock and heave through the swells, sea sickness becomes prevalent since the horizon line is no longer visible. Our last two fishing excursions were on the Dana Pride, a much bigger boat, with half the fishermen. Both of those trips were far more enjoyable.

Fabulous blue whales and dolphins

We had a wonderful time with dolphins swimming right along the boat, which was roomy and comfortable. The captain did a great job of getting us to the whales and knowing just when they would surface. This trip was exciting and far exceeded our expectations.

Caught 30" Halibut

I took one of my Grandsons and Granddaughters fishing on the half day boat " Reel Fun".

The crew was a good group of young men that did a great job making sure that everyone on board had a good time. When someone hooked into a larger fish, one of the crew were there to assist if needed.

At two different locations, my Grandson hooked into a couple really large fish. Both times one of the crew made sure he had enough room to fight and enjoy his 5 minute battle. The first escaped, but the second turned out to be a 30", Jack Pot Winning, Halibut.

Over the years, I've used Dana Point Harbor as our "go to" fishing distention.

My Grandson leaves for college today.

The "Reel Fun" crew helped create memories I will always cherish...... Thank you.

Fantastic! Great whale watching!

This was a very special day for us...we got to see at least 6 massive blue whales and we were able to get so close! The pilot of the boat knew when and where to linger for us to have best views and had great commentary! The boat (the Catamaran) was in great shape, spotless and very comfortable. We live here and are just amazed we had not visited this tour before...we will definitely be back with friends and family.

Good Experience
Sun, Aug 11, 13   10:00 AM c81050 Female 60-69 Local Group of Friends
The trip left on time and the boat was clean and wellstocked with items at the snack bar. The captain was knowledgeable and polite, as was the lady in the snack bar. We say one whale dive and surface several times. The weather was great and the trip was nice. We were given a 40% off coupon when we deboarded, which I am going to use in 2 weeks.

We did not see any dolphins, which was disappointing.

My 3rd time on this trip and I love it every time!

My husband and I took our twenty nine year old daughter and we all loved the trip. We saw a big pod of dolphins, with mothers and babies, and a beautiful blue whale. The captain got us as close as possible to the whale and even told us what side of the boat to stand on to get the best pictures.

There were four adults and five kids. Some seasickness but everyone really enjoyed the adventure. Some are still talking about this as a highlight of their trip to Southern CA. Thank you!
