I would recommend this trip. I had never done any type of activity like this before and I thought it was really neat. We only saw one pod of dolphins but even at that it was worth it. They were so cool and lots of babies too!!

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.

My wife's first fishing trip!

Perfect day on the "Sum Fun"! It was a great trip, a little short on catching fish because of cooler water. The captian moved several times on the look for more fish, he did a great job! The crew was very helpful with plenty of squid and live anchovies. They were always one step in front of any trouble. My wife had a great time and wants to go back when ever we can (works for me!) Thanks for a great trip!

I am a huge whale fan and I saw an ad in the San Clemente paper while visiting my aunt and uncle. My mom was visting with me and we were looking for things to do, when I came across your ad (ad was for 1/2 price except on tuesdays - not realizing that Tuesdays were your discount day). She was interested and we went online to look up more infomration on your website. We then discovered your half price Tuesdays and were sold! Buying online was very easy and finding the building to get the tickets was also very easy. We have been to Dana Point Harbor before, so it was very easy to find our way around. We loved the boat we had, especially the lookout area where we could have our own titanic moment. I think half the fun of the trip was being on the bow of the boat crashing over the waves. It was even fun when we got drenched from the high waves. We had great people on the tour who had as much fun getting we as we did. The two guys captaining the boat were great and had fun with us. It was so memorable, that I honestly can't believe I had never even thought to do this before. It was something that I might never have seen before, blue whales (we saw 2 blue whales and lots of dolphins that night), I felt so special! I definately want to come out again when I come back to visit. It is a great price for an extradordinary experience. We had a blast and recommend it to everyone!

Check fishing conditions before you go
Mon, Sep 6, 10   6:30 AM DiegoPongo Male 20-29 Local Family Without Children
The captain announced after we pushed off and were out at sea, that the fishing the past two weeks had been really slow. No one wants to spend 90 dollars or more to go out and not catch any keepers. I wish I had called ahead before getting tickets to find out the conditions. Also, we didn't actually get out of the harbor until about 7:10 am and the schedule says we push off at 6:30am. Not that big a deal, especially since we didn't start coming back in until 1130.

Wonderful experience!

About five minutes into our adventure, we were entertained by a group of California sea lions relaxing on a buoy. Shortly thereafter, we saw dolphins diving and swimming. There must have been one hundred of these loveable, beautiful, graceful creatures. And, to top off our trip, we saw four magnificient blue whales. Words can not describe the beauty we beheld.

Our two crew members were very personable and professional. It was clear that they were as excited as all of us about seeing nature's incredible gifts.

The catamaran was the perfect size and everyone on board was able to see everything. It's a great ride!

We are planning another trip to California to see the grey whales, and will book with Catamaran Adventure Cruises.

The crew was fun and enthusiastic and provided a great deal of insight into marine mammals. We saw a dozen blue whales, so it was an extraordinary afternoon of whale watching. Great experience.

Best 2 Hours on the water ever!
Tue, Aug 17, 10   5:00 PM theelledges Female 50-59 Local Family Without Children
Thank you Captain and crew of the Dana Pride. You were awesome!

I have lived here for over 35 years and have never done a "Whale Watch". In part; I get sea sick and the other being skeptical of others having respect of sea life.

My niece and her husband came from Philadelphia for vacation. I wanted to plan something so they could enjoy the Pacific Ocean.

Booked 8 tickets--half price--what a deal! My family is still talking about it two weeks later. From the west coast to the east coast.

Saw a school of dolphins with babies. They followed the boat as if they were playing for attention. Water was calm, sky blue, no wind. Like they came just to see us. The Captain's narration made us feel secure in that they were enjoying this as much as we were.

Then on to the search for the Blue Whale. Not one Blue Whale--but 5. Yes I said 5. There were others on the boat that said they had been on other Whale watches and had never seen a whale. Not this time!. Not only was it exciting and enjoyable to see these massive creatures of the sea, I felt appreciative of the Captain and crew's respect for these creatures and our ocean.

Best 2 hours on the ocean I have ever had. Too much fun to get sea sick.
