The captain was so informative and kind to everyone. The boat was very clean and attended. It was a wonderful experience that I would recommend to everyone, young and older alike, if you enjoy the ocean and all the wildlife that goes with it.

Great ship, great crew and great viewing. A very pleasant two hours exploring the Dana point seas and wildlife. Tuesdays are two for one days but a great bargain on any day. A snack bar with drinks, hot and cold, alcoholic and non completed the adventure.

We saw two Grey whales and thousands of dolphins. The crew stayed out an additional 15 min. for us to get good photos. The trip was well worth the money. My grand daughter was thrilled.

Marvelous Experience

We found this activity on the web and decided to give it a try. We loved it from beginning to end!!! It was one of the most enjoyable experiences we have had as a extended family. It's not easy to find mutually enjoyable time for 14 people between the ages of 5 years to 65 years. This was it. The crew was kind and informative. The boat clean and comfortable. The price was fabulous. We will do it agin when we are in town.

My daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren (ages 8 & 10) were here in CA visiting from KY and I thought this would be a good experience for them. We happened to see the mega pod of common dolphins. The experience was beyond what words can express. The kids as well as the adults will never forget it. It happened to be a very cold day and it was overcast, but that did not put a damper on the cruise. The captain was very knowledgeable and friendly and the crew was helpful and friendly. It could not have been better! We didn't see a whale that day but it didn't matter! I would definately do this again.

Dana Sport Fishing Whale Watching Trip

Since it was early in the season and it was very cold and the water was very rough we didn't see any whales or dolphins. Even the sea lions were few and far between. It was a very nice boat and the crew seemed very knowledgeable and friendly. Some people couldn't handle the rough ride and got seasick. If my friend had been staying longer we might have waited for more favorable conditions, but since she was leaving the next day we didn't have much of a choice. I strongly recommend that people dress WARMLY if they are going to take this trip in the winter months. By warmly, I mean winter coats or jackets because it was COLD. Fortunately, we were dressed accordingly so we were relatively comfortable. Since we didn't see any whales or dolphins we received a voucher for another trip at some point in the future. Hopefully, we will have better luck then, but we felt that it was an enjoyable experience nonetheless. I have been on these trips before and got to see many dolphins as well as the occasional Grey Whale. This time of year however, it is a crap-shoot as they say with regard to the weather and/or the likelihood of seeing marine life. It's still worth the trip in my opinion as it is generally an enjoyable two hour cruise if nothing else.

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.

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.
