Crew was wonderful and the vessel wasn't crowded. We stayed with a huge pod of dolphins for about an hour...it was fabulous.

pleasant being out

The staff were good and patient-I was irritated with some kids and a parent next too me who left there rods unatttended. The staff did all they could but it sort of soured me on the experience-that and the teenages who though nothing of casting their bait near a bird and hooking it.

I still recommend the trip just because of the beauty of the harbor.

Although we saw no whales, it was fun watching the dolphins and enjoying the Pacific-great weather.

DECKS HANDS AND FISHING DURATION
Sat, Oct 9, 10   10:00 AM joenron Male 60-69 Local Family Without Children
THIS IS MY THIRD TRIP WITH DANA POINT, THE FIRST WAS ON THE CLEMENTE. THE SECOND WAS ON THE SUM FUM. TODAY'S TRIP WAS ON THE REEL FUN. I WAS THOROUGHLY IMPRESSED BY THE DECK HANDS AND FISHING DURATION ON THE CLEMENTE. THE OTHER 2 BOATS LEFT MUCH TO BE DESIRED. TODAY'S TRIP ON THE REEL FUN WAS TO BE A 5 HOUR TRIP BEGINNING AT 6:30 A.M. WE PULLED AWAY FROM THE DOCK ON TIME AND PROCEEDE TO THE BAIT DOCK. WE THEN WENT BACK TO THE DOCK TO PICK UP A MAN AND AND A 3 YEAR OLD BOY (WHO HAPPENED TO CREATE SOMEWHAT OF A DISTRACTION ON THE TRIP) IT WASN'T UNTIL APPROXIMATELY 8:15 A.M. THAT WE PUT OUR POLES IN THE WATER. DURING THE TRIP, THE CREW HAD US ROTATE OUR POSITIONS AROUND THE BOAT(WHICH SEEMED TO BE POINTLESS, AS, WE WE INUNDATED WITH HANG UPS IN THE KELP). I DO LOOK FORWARD TO BOOKING TRIPS AGAIN, IF, I CAN BE PROVIDED OF A FISHING SCHEDULE FOR THE CLEMENTE.

THANKS

JOE C.

We had a great trip! Saw lots of dolphins. Crew was very informative and enthusiastic. I took my 85 yr. old father with me and he had never seen anything like that before. Excellent Ocean Adventure!

Great crew
Sat, Sep 18, 10   10:00 AM eluna43 Male 60-69 Local Family Without Children
The crew on this boat was great. They were right on the spot every time a fish was caught, took if off hook, measured it for legal size, constantly helped especially newcomers to ocean fishing.

needed a larger boat for the # of people
Thu, Sep 16, 10   10:00 AM Barbbelding Female 60-69 Local Group of Friends
35 (approx) people.....and bait boxes......people casting lines and catching other people's hair in the hook and bait. Personally I think it was too many people in a smallish boat.

The weather ands sea conditions wre perfect
Thu, Sep 9, 10   10:00 AM minicooper Male 60-69 Local Family With Children
I took two of my grandsons out . The weather and sea conditions couldn't have been better. The captain & crew noted that the fish counts had been down this season, but hoped that this trip we be better. They were right, plenty of bass were picked up (many keepers) . We had only 26 people on board, so the fishing was quite tolerable. We had plenty of fresh bait and squid, but I was happy to see many fish caught on jigs and swim baits. My grandsons had a nice time, although they only got a couple of fish, but were delighted in seeing all the fish brought on board. We'll be going out again, hoping this time we'll do better ourselves. The crew was helpful and supportive with the younger crowd. The only thing I would wish for is that the guys fishing would not stay in "their" spots, as it seemed the regulars seemed to hold on the stern, most often leaving their rods in their position. It would have been better if they rotated all positions, and not allowing to leave any rods on the rails. Otherwise, a very nice trip!

Very enjoyable

Great boat ride. Crew made an effort to make the trip enjoyable eventhough we didn't see any whales. They went out of the way to stay with a large pod of dolphins eventhough we got back late. Wonderful time on the water!

Would go again.

Worth the price of admission

I took my 83 year old mother and my 42 year old cousin and we enjoyed the relaxing and scenic 2+ hour trip. We did not see any whales but we saw dolphins and seals. The skipper was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of information about the area and the marine wildlife.

The half-price Tuesday was well worth it. I am sure I will go again.

Dolphines everywhere!

This was our third trip on this beautiul catameran.

The boat was surrounded by dolphins for over an hour.

Going on the ocean can be an experience depending on the weather, sea chop and cutomers comfort with being on a boat.

This is the best of the best if you have never been out before or can get a bit queezy?

The boat is new, and very stable,with all the amenities needed, toilets, a place to sit inside or out, easy viewing area for wilflife, snacks and drinks and protection from the weather if needed. The crew is professional, well versed on the dolphins, whales,seals, birds, and other wildlife and will give you enough background so you will depart knowing more than when you started, without a lecture.

The price is fair for a two hour excursion.

Always have a jacket.
