Fishing is slow, but not too bad.
Sun, Jun 16, 13   6:30 AM ANNA92688 Female 20-29 Local Family Without Children
The crew is always nice and helpful. Fishing has been slow, but if your lucky you can catch some big ones. I caught a decent male sheephead and two small rockfish. My grandfather caught two small rockfish as well and he was so happy. My mother caught a large sargo. The one who got the jackpot was a very small boy with a large white bass. I love fishing, but be aware that even on a boat you might catch nothing. You need luck to catch fish these days. I love to see the sea lions play and we even saw a large mola mola or sunfish too. It swam next to the boat at the surface. You never know what you will see or catch. Good luck to all.

Very Enjoyable

The boat was clean and nice. The boat driver was very knowledgeable. The website wasn't clear that it was in between whale seasons. They did however give our tickets back for another trip because we didn't see any whales or dolphins. I would recommend this company.

Friendly staff, don't go after a swell

We had a great time, but the ocean weather made the fishing a bit difficult. We caught 4 fish too small to keep, and only 2 fish from the whole 20+ group made it into the jackpot. Staff was friendly though, and it just happened to be a bad day to go fishing. Saw dolphins!

fun afternoon

Took the kids out whale watching, and everyone enjoyed it. Saw lots of common dolphins, a few sea lions, and 2 whales who were trying to stay hidden. Food and cocktails were reasonably priced.

Tues' trip
Tue, Jun 4, 13   12:00 PM TRISHMO Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Glad we got to see a whale and some common dolphins. Would have been nice to stay longer as it seemed we traveled quite a while and saw nothing and when we did, we had to return to dock.

Fishing Day Success!!!
Mon, May 27, 13   10:00 AM StacyMohler Female 40-49 Local Group of Friends
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!!!

We did not see any whale sightings that day so they returned our ticket to us so that we could ride for free on another day. Fantastic!

I'm with Laurie Anderson and helping organize the Dolphins Love Kids boat trips. I really appreciate the open minded and friendly manner you displayed on the trip. I am a retired school teacher and also appreciated the interesting background information presented on the trip. Looking forward to more adventures in the future.
