The captain did a great job of trying to keep the boat from washing as much as possible on a very windy day.

Fishing sucked.

There were four people in our group and two of us caught fish, 1 each both small mackerel. According to the fish counts that we could see online it looked like they were averaging 384 fish per day for the prior 5 days and on 4/5 38 fish and then a full boat load of people we couldn't have been more then 4 miles at the most from the port and we don't even catch an average of 1 fish per person. I realized that is why it's called fishing and not catching but to only catch 10 percent of what they had been averaging the prior 5 days.

We had a great time we saw a lot of dolphins and some whales, the captain was great, he would tell us where to look for the whales and he made sure both sides of the boat could get a good look at the whales

Not only did we have a great time seeing all the dolphins and the fin whale, but the captain of the boat was very knowledgeable about all the sea life and provided and detailed explanation of what we were seeing. All of us had a great time.

Whale Watching

I would highly recommend this company to others for whale watching. The guide was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about the whales. It certainly helped that we saw whales within 20' of the boat but beyond that I felt it was a great crew that would make the most of every trip out.

We went out after the rain showers the day before, ocean was a bit choppy but we like those conditions. Within a few minutes we came right up to a killer whale, Shamu in her natural habitat! The boat followed her along for several minutes and we got very close. My daughter is taking Marine Science in college so it was very lucky for her to see the Orca on her frist whale watching trip

Whale Festival Dana Point

I saw the Ad on an EMail from Fast Trax. Loked like a good activity. I bought (2) tickets on line. Nice and Easy. It turned out to be a beautiful day. We saw the first grey whale for the festival thi syear as well as many many dolphins, seals and more. The (2) hour ride was almost too fast. As we were on the 8:00 A.M. tour, afterwards we spent the rest of the day enjoying the activities in the area and then taking a romantic trip up the coast to Laguna Beach. We will do again!

pricy and little to no fish

We love fishing. We fish almost every weekend. We fish on a boat with the Dana Warf Sportfishing, about 1 to 3 times a year. We don't go that often with them because the total price is too much and fishing has been slow. The crew members are really nice and helpful. They taught us how to tie the hook on better with an easy, but strong knot. Some people catch big ones and even interesting ones. On these trips I have seen moray eels caught and even a large shovel nose guitar fish. We almost always see dolphins and sea lions. It's nice to be out there, but you may not get you money's worth. Some days of fishing are great, while other are not. I would suggest to just fish off of a pier you like best, you might have a better chance. We fish at San Clemente pier a lot. We hope fishing will be good for all people, so fishing on the boat might be worth it. Good luck fishing everyone, no matter where you fish, how you fish, or who your with.
