I booked the trip knowing that fishing would be questionable. Your web site held true and that was OK. My son's had never been on the ocean fishing and it was worth the looks on there face's. We will be back....

Thanks

We tracked a mum and a calf grey whale up the coast which was great to see, we also found a large pod of dolphin which was fantastic.

The captain and crew were excellent guides.

Amazing time for both of us!

The Captain did a great job parking the boat right on the fish. Everyone on board was catching Calico Basson 8 out of 10 casts. Those that were struggling with technique had a crew member come and show them the tricks to have an eventful time. Captain and the crew were very friendly and out going, made the trip so much more enjoyable. I highly recommend it to anyone. Our next trip will be with our children, we landed so many fish, with quite a few keepers, that it would be near impossible for them to have a bad time! Loved it 100%......by the way, no need for a shore pole. Regular length pole works great, right Cory?!?

These guys know what they are doing really very well. I traveled from Oregon on Sept 7th and took this cruise to watch Blue Whales with a few other friends. We had a great look at the Blue Whale! And saw thousands of Dolphins swimming alongside the cruise and "by the wind sailors". The guides are very helpful and eagerly answer to all the questions you may have and more. They also talked of several interesting facts about the animals we saw. We had a "whale" of a time indeed!

Excellent fishing opportunity

Excellent day on the watere when Cory the Captain decided to stop searching for "Dorado,Mahi mahi,dolphin for 90 minutes...It was a great ride but the sea was way to flat to search for kelp patties.....After which we moved closer to shore to catch numerous Calico/Kelp Bass, techinque is much like fishing for yellowtail snapper in the Florida Keys....Rig a sliding egg sinker 1/8 to 1/2 ounce depending on current with a 1 to 1/0 circle hook....Both squid and sardine filets worked well...Place bait as close to kelp as possible as the Calico Bass are extremely territorial and aggressives as the bait drops 4 to 12 feet below the kelp....If using live bait use 3/4 to 1 ounce egg sinker to get the bait quickly to the bottom for halibut and away from birds. Pacific Barracuda, Halibut, a few pelicans, Commorants and losing fish to a pesky sea lion. Birds are definetly a problem when fishing live bait.....Both the mates Chad and Mike are excellent as was the captain in assisting patrons. Other than catching the fish themselves they did everything possible to find fish.......As a bonus the selection of beer was great and I had the best cheeseburger on a fishing boat ever......Fish are fileted on the way in so inner is ready to prepare when you get home or back to your hotel if the chef will cooperate,,,Wish i had taken a full day......As an ex mate of numberous fishing boats in the Florida Keys......These guys get an A++++and I would recommend them highly and hope to be back soon......

My boyfriend took me on the whale watching cruise for my birthday. After over an hour on the water seeing only sea lions, we weren't sure we'd end up seeing any whales, but we really didn't care because we loved being out on the water on such a beautiful day. We were thrilled when the captain told us that another boat had radioed him to say they spotted some whales. We immediately took off for the area and saw two gray whales swimming side by side. It was amazing! Definitely something to do for anyone who has a chance to get to Dana Point. Loved it!

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

We had a fantastic adventure watching the blue whales and dolphins. The skipper was great and so forthcoming with lots of facts about all of sealife we saw. The crew was very friendly as were the other people on the trip. There were so many blue whales we couldn't even count them all. What a treat for my daughter's 40th birthday!!

Whales are right off shore so no long trek out to sea. Boat commodious. Bloody Mary's available for those with children (and food for kids as well). Very persistent crew in finding and tracking whales. Good commentary

Although we did not see any whales at the 8am boat ride, the captain did take us to the area where there were more than a hundred dolphins swimming and jumping out of the water. Not seeing any whales wasn't a deal breaker for us because we got the tickets at a bargain price, so you can't complain for not seeing any whales. The captain was determined to find some whales on the 8am ride and even took us farther than he normally would go for these tours, but no whales. The environment is very friendly and everyone on board were mostly younger families bringing their kids. I would definitely go again at the discounted price--in case we don't see any whales again.
