Epic Adventure!

I would highly recommend the evening cruise. There is nothing like it! The crew was amazing, they were all very respectful and knowledgeable. Watch the sun go down as you fish for sea bass...who could ask for more? Definitely going to do this again!

Just OK
Tue, Jul 5, 11   5:00 PM craigwilsey Female 40-49 Local Family Without Children
It was very boring. The boat was crowded and there was no place to sit. Brought along 2 elderly family and was told they could go down below and sit inside where you could not see anything. The crew gave very little narration over the 2 hrs. Saw no whales or any sea life whatsoever. Crew gave very little narration. Since they found no whales on the tour they did hand out free ticket to come again but most people commented they probably wouldn't use it. For 1/2 price it is an ok value for someone who wants to get out on the water on a slow moving vessel but I would not pay full price.

Smooth ride, great crew
Sun, Jul 3, 11   12:00 PM rohmann Male Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Being from San Diego, we're used to the idea that Southern Cal whale watching was limited to grey whale migration, so were pleasantly surprised to learn of the blue whales off Dana Point in the summer. The price is reasonable for a two hour ride, the crew knowledgable and congenial, and the catamaran fast and smooth. Though whales had been spotted the day before, we didn't encounter any this trip, but did see three species of dolphin and had a great time. Will definitely do this again.

A great way to showcase SoCal natural wonders!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

My wife, my parents, and I chose a Friday evening trip and couldn't have planned a better activity. We were fortunate enough to see and follow a Blue Whale! My parents were visiting from the midwest and this was a once in a lifetime experience that they will never forget. The crew was great and the boat wasn't too crowded- everyone had a chance to move into position to see the whale. We all highly recommend this experience.

Seeing a whale is the icing on the cake!
Tue, Jun 28, 11   5:00 PM sschaney Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We are from the East Coast and simply enjoyed viewing the scenery from the water. The cliffs and the homes were magnificent. The crew was friendly and the boat was perfect for its purpose. Passing the pelicans and having a couple fly along side was cool to witness. Seeing the sealions on the buoy was entertaining as well. Spotting the spray of the blue whale off in the distance was awesome. Getting closer and closer to it was exhilerating. We did not see a Pacific Life commercial, but it was spectacular nonetheless.

Twilight 1/2 day fishing trip on the Clemente
Sat, Jun 25, 11   5:30 PM EDurand Male 40-49 Local Family Without Children
The fishing was relatively slow, and the fish stopped biting once the sun went down, so there was a wasted hour and a half. The fishing was so slow that the boat actually came in about 35 minutes early. I highly suggest the morning fishing trip when the fish are actually feeding.

Good Deal
Tue, Jun 14, 11   5:00 PM mieps67 Female 40-49 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Unfortunately it was all overcast when went on our whale-watching trip but we had fun anyway. I think the half off is a very good deal for a 2-hour boat trip even without seeing any whales. We did see lots of dolphins. Of course a little sunshine would have made it even more enjoyable but all in all I think it was an evening well spend.

1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises
Tue, May 24, 11   2:00 PM CRITTENDON Male 70+ Local Family Without Children
The cruise was very pleasant. Although it was near the end of the season and we saw only porpoises (not whales),

it was a fun adventure and the cruise and fresh air were worth the trip. We also received free passes to take the

cruise again (since we didn't see whales). It was a very smooth ride, and the crew were helpful and informative.

We will definitely do this again, and bring more family along.

Fishing the local spots
Sat, Apr 23, 11   6:30 AM makoscott Male 50-59 Local Family Without Children
We always enjoy the Dana Wharf fishing trips. They know the local spots and put you right on the fish.

Wheter its the long range, catalina or local hot spots. You will catch 'em.
