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

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

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

No Whales, but great show of Dolphins

I really wanted to see a blue whale. The captain and crew certainly did try to find one for viewing. However, it was not the morning for us to see one. Dolphins, dolphins and more dolpnins played along side our boat. It was great. There were a lot of mothers with their babies. I started to try to take a lot of pictures and then just quit so I could enjoy the fabulous experience. We also saw several sunfish and California sea lions. It was a wonderful trip on a very clean boat with a super crew. I would recommend doing this morning trip to everyone who has the opportunity to be at Dana Point.

Fishing was fun!
Fri, Aug 27, 10   10:00 AM skaplan_480 Male 60-69 Local Family With Children
My wife and I took our grandson(13) for this fishing adventure. The crew was very helpful and friendly. I don't recall how many times(too many to count) that the crew had to untangle our snarled reels, but they did so in a amiable manner not reflecting on our clumsiness.

The boat was well maintained and clean with plenty of room for the anglers. We caught 6-12 fish each but they were too small to keep. My only thought was that maybe if we had gone out further( you could clearly see the shore) that the catch might have been larger.

What a fantastic outing for a family with kids!!!!

My husband and I have been on other whale watching trips , but this one was by far the best. We invited our daughter and her 5 year old daughter and 7 year old son. The weather, the ocean and the atmoshere on the boat were exceptional. .About 30 or more dolphins entertained us very close to the boat. We saw several whales also. It was the best trip!! Thank you for such a memorable experience. My 2 grand-kids were in awe at all they experienced. We would suggest this trip to everyone. Mr. and Mrs. Sellers

I really thought that whale watching was only in the winter. I figured in August we could see some dolphins maybe, some seals but have a nice cruise. We saw several blue whales -- and far closer than I would have thought. Great day, one of the best of the summer (mid August). It was a great experience. Of course, we hit a great day, but still.

Price on Tuesday was quite affordable as well. .

One of the Highlights of our Trip

We were on a trip with two of our grandsons (13 and 14). I had read the reviews and scheduled us for Tuesday morning. This tour more than met every expectation I had hoped. We saw dolphins, bottle nose porpoises leaping out of the wake 5-6 ft. into the air, and 3 grey whales. The last whale was massive making me a bit nervous, since we were quite close. This whale ended his show by diving and exposing his entire tail. I felt this show was better than what I had experienced in Glacier Bay, Alaska.

Thanks for a great time and also for the opportunity to take advantage of a great savings program.
