1/2 Day on Sum Fun
Sat, Jul 21, 12   12:00 PM sbay0307 Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
This was my second trip on Sum Fun, and each time with limited results - in fact, we only caught one fish between 3 of us. Both times the boat did not have anchovies for bait. Other boats that I've taken out had anchovies, and we were successful. The boat was overcrowded - 56 anglers. Not only was the boat overcrowded for fishing, there was a sign on the boat that read "27 adult life vests". Interesting. I will never take Sum Fun out again.

Whale of a time!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Fri, Jul 20, 12   5:00 PM donsong Female 50-59 Local Couple on a Date
Really enjoyed the trip. Saw a large school of dolphin before we saw the blue whales. The crew did a great job of "chasing" the whale spouts, so we could get some great pictures of the whales.

My only recommendation is to down sweep the speakers, as they were very hard to hear! Overall though, great trip, thanks.

More whale sightings than Alaska

Just returned from Alaska cruise and saw more and bigger whales than on all our trip including very expensive cruise excursions. Great boat and crew. Great value and lots of fun.

"Better than Sea World"
Fri, Jul 20, 12   2:00 PM bartondb Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We took our two grandchildren, ages 5 and 6, on the two hour tour. It was outstanding. We had three whale sitings, hundreds of dolphins, a California Sea Lion and jelly fish. Our granddaughter enthusiastically said, "This is better than Sea World!!!" Of course, we agree wholeheartedly. A couple of young passengers were dealing with a little nausea. I think staying in the fresh air helps that.

We spent two beautiful hours on the water, watching whales, and many spouts in the distance. Wonderful trip!

Gorgeous day filled with wildlife!
Tue, Jul 17, 12   12:00 PM jproctor73 Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
We were surrounded by blue whales in all directions...as many as 6 at a time. Then we saw humpback whales breaching! There weren't as many dolphins as usual, but the water was filled with sea jellies and we saw a few sea lions as well. The trip was well worth the hour drive from San Diego.

Worth every penny!
Tue, Jul 17, 12   10:00 AM jpinkney Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We took the whale watching trip on half price Tuesday. It was worth every penny. I would recommend taking some Drmamine about 1 hour before you get on the boat.. The crew was very friendly and the boat was clean. We were lucky enough to watch two humpback whales and one blue whale. The captain was very knowledgeable about the whales and gave an easy to understand presentation. I would recommend this tour to everyone.

We went on the catamaran on July 16 at 2:00. We were with our 8 year old grandson who is from Arizona. We saw several pairs of Blue Whales, we saw a Fin Whale and a large school of dolphins. It was spectacular! The crew did a great job explaining everything to us, including the large red spot in the water aka whale poop! It was so interesting! Our grandson had a ball too!

A fun time
Sun, Jul 15, 12   12:45 PM karm1134 Female 20-29 Unspecified Couple on a Date
I took my boyfriend fishing for his birthday and it was both of our first times. We went out on Sum Fun and the crew was helpful. We found out after we had booked our tickets that it was the kids deal day. It didn't bother me too much other than a few extra tangled lines than I imagine there might normally be. I caught 3 fish (all too small to keep) but had a fun time and good day over all.

no whales but lots of dolphins up close and my 6 yr. old nephew loved it. for the adults, nice to get out after a long workweek, fresh air, and be out on the water. good variety of food options too. i'd do it again, whales or no whales!

Best Whale Watching Experiebce EVER!
Fri, Jul 13, 12   2:00 PM deniseanunez Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This was my second time in the last 2 months going on the Catamaran. I thought the first times was awesome because we had 300 dolphins racing the boat, saw a menke whale and sea lions, but this second trip was amazing!!!!! We saw several groups of dolphins, but saw 3 humpback whales. We saw a mom and baby together that came right up to the boat! It was AMAZING! I recommend paying the extra money for the Catamaran! Friends have done others and say that they are not worth it, but the two times I have been on the Catamaran, I have had amazing experiences. My 3.5 year old nephew loved it and still asks about the dolphins, sea lions, and whales on the boat.

Informative, enjoyable adventure

The boat left on time. The weather was fine until the fog set in. The captain was enthusiastic, well informed and made the cruise quite enjoyable. It was fun to see a hugh pod of dolpins. The whale was too far south to get to. July isn't the best time of the year for whale watching. I highly recommend taking a sweatshirt, windbreaker or warm sweater to protect you should the weather get cold, which it did on our trip.
