No fish, but good bites.
Sun, Dec 23, 12   6:30 AM ANNA92688 Female Under 20 Local Group of Friends
We had no keepers this time, we caught a few small fish and that's it. The crew were nice. We were hoping to catch more fish and keeper fish. We used live squid bait, but it didn't work for us. I wish they had that and the usual live little fish. I love fishing anyways, but this is too expensive for my pocket. I'd do it again, but only once or twice every year. We saw many pods of dolphins and even a baby one. Being on a boat is nice, but costs too much. We like to go to the San Clemente pier, because we only have to pay for parking and bait. For this activity we have to pay for the ticket, a day license, pole rentals(since ours are not the best), not to mention the optional jackpot, tips, and fish cleaning by the crew. We love it, but it's better just to go to the pier or do what some crazy people do, which is fishing on a kayak, which then it would be cheaper to buy a year fishing license. Try the boat thing, maybe you'll be more lucky than us and catch the big ones!

excellent trip

This was an excellent way to spend a few hours. There is not a guarantee that you will actually see whales on the day you go. We did get to see 2 fin whales and literally 100's of dolphins on the day we went out. The crew tries to make sure you will see something on your excursion and our crew were friendly and very helpful. will probably do this again if we are in the area again.

Though we didn't see whales, we did see a couple different dolphin species. The last species of dolphins that we saw were super friendly and came right up to the boat!

TIP: it gets cold out in the waters. Bring a light jacket.

We were able to see around 600 dolphins swim near the boat. Unfortunately it's not whale season just yet, but the dolphins were interesting to see. Also the tour was very informative, the caption knows his mammals! Had a great time!

On our ladies getaway this year we decided to take a whale watching tour in California - what a wonderful choice! Our tour guides were informative and helpful and made every effort to ensure we would see something. Although it wasn't technically whale season (Nov 6), we did see a fin whale - awesome. What I liked best though was the school of dolphins they brought us to - that alone was worth it. Rounded out with a sea lion sunning, this trip was fantastic! Even had we not seen any wildlife (how is that possible?), the ride alone would be worth it.

Surfing porpoises were beautiful

On a beautiful, calm day, the catamaran was very stable (important to me who gets seasick), and very quickly found a fin whale which we watched for quite some time. Then on to a very large pod of porpoises -- perhaps 2000 altogether -- who seemed to enjoy swimming beside us and surfing in the boat's wake. In between, we watched sooty shearwaters who were so full of krill that they couldn't even make it off the water. The naturalist on the boat was very informative, and the trip overall was a great treat.

perfect afternoon boat ride
Sun, Nov 4, 12   2:00 PM Kikosecor Female 20-29 Local Group of Friends
The captain is so knowledgeable and is very well connected amongst boaters in the area - so he was able to listen to the radio to find out exactly where the dolphins and whales were located so that we could go see them. He found a pod of 1800 common dolphins, and it was so breathtaking!

Would definitely do this tour again.

Captain's knowledge was great. Plus, you could actually understand the loudspeaker (which is a first!) We did not see a whale, but we saw hundreds of dolphins, right next to the boat. Sad about the whale, but the captain could not have been better, plus they gave us the whale ticket to come back and try again another time. Highly recommend. My kids loved just the boat experience, and the dolphins were unbelievable.

Great evening!

My husband and I went on the 4pm cruise. It was amazing. The boat wasn't too crowded and we had a great view the whole time. We didn't see any whales but did see a whole pod of dolphins. The crew was curteous and knowledgeable. Great value for a fun evening. We will definitely be going again in hopes to see a whale.

We spent too long looking at the common dolphins. I felt like we should have moved on to find the whales.
