Great Experience at Dana Whart

Loved everything about this whale watching adventure. The captain and crew do a great job of both educating and entertaining as you sail about the area. We were fortunate enough to see a Blue Whale- the rarest to see and biggest on earth! The ship was clean, lots of room to view and great snack/drink service on board. Highly recommend this adventure!

Good time but be prepared

This was a good time but be prepared -- the rods and reels that you rent (separate fee) are of poor quality and not typical of a deep sea fishing trip in FL. Caught some nice bass and yellow-tail

Best day of my Vacation
Thu, Aug 7, 14   12:00 PM Imogene Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
My daughter and I took this sea jaunt to see dolphins. The ride was very relaxing, even without the addition of the dolphins and sea-lions , this was a very enjoyable tour for me. I would recommend it to any of my friends visiting San Clemente/ San Diego area.

Nice cruise

The two hour whale and dolphin tour was on time and the captain and one man crew were very efficient and kept everyone up to date on what was out there. Unfortunately there were no whale sightings that day on any outing. We did come across 2 large pods of porpoise. We had some very good film of them. I will do this again in the winter and hopefully have better success in seeing whales.

My wife and I took this trip and really enjoyed it. It was not the time of year for whales but the crew was determined to find a pod of dolphins and did. We had a wonderful 30 minutes or so making passes through the fairly large group of dolphins.

The crew was friendly, explained things to us and kept us informed as we went out looking. I'd go again juts for the wonderful afternoon on the water.

Beautiful day on the water.

The crew was nice. We saw lots of dolphins but no whales. We got a coupon for 50% off to sail with them again. We will definitely take the tour again.

Nice boat and crew

Did not see any whales but plenty of dolphins, if staying at the Dana Point Marriot, it's a five minute walk to the Dana Point Wharf, highly recommend that you go there, plenty of restaurants and must eat at RJ Cafe

A must do in Dana Point.

My family had a great time. We had an opportunity to see both a whale and a pod of dolphins. My daughter wanted to do it again the next say. I highly recommend this activity.

Ok...overfished
Fri, Aug 1, 14   5:30 PM chadcross Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Good experience and the staff was very professional...but the areas we went to were very overfished, and though we caught some fish, we actually faired better simply fishing from the pier

Full boat, good half day trip
Fri, Aug 1, 14   6:30 AM Markbromley Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
Pluses: Efficient crew, plenty of fish. adequate space, fair pricing.

The rental gear was fine and there was plenty of parking.

Minuses: Guys who got on the boat first dominated the stern and there was no rotation to move anglers around the boat.

Two teenagers who dominated the stern also appeared to be employees of some sort. They had access to the captain's space and helped clean the boat on the way in. If they were employees, they should not have competed with the paying customers for fishing space.

Loved our tour! The captain was very informative and seemed just as excited as we were to see a blue whale. Would definitely do this again.
