Informative, enjoyable adventure
Wed, Jul 11, 12   2:00 PM jprich Female 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
The boat left on time. The weather was fine until the fog set in. The captain was enthusiastic, well informed and made the cruise quite enjoyable. It was fun to see a hugh pod of dolpins. The whale was too far south to get to. July isn't the best time of the year for whale watching. I highly recommend taking a sweatshirt, windbreaker or warm sweater to protect you should the weather get cold, which it did on our trip.

Fishing off Dana Point Sucks

Id NEVER do that again. We stayed so close to the shore, that we couldn't get away from the pelicans, seals and dolphin. Needless to say, the only thing caught were the pelicans. It was quite sad too see all theses birds with hooks and lures stuck in their little pea brained heads.

From now on, it's only full day boat fishing trips for me!

Wish the crew would provide more information as to what they were doing. I just saw them smoking in the wheelhouse for the last hour of the trip. Would not say that we are looking for dolphins or whales after the first hour and encounter.

Good trip for families and tourists

I enjoyed my fishing expedition. As a solo person, I felt comfortable talking to the other fisherpeple and crew. I didn't really know what I was doing, but I had fun none the less. Fishing was a bit tough that night, but the crew was great in not waiting too long to move us to better locations. For someone who is serious about fishing, not sure if this is the type of fishing tour you would like to go on.

My daughters and I had only a short visit to the area. We found this trip on line and knew the cruise time fit our schedule. The tour departed on time. We enjoyed the crews discussion of the wild life. We saw no whales but many dolphins.

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

The crew was nice and knowledgable. They tried really hard to find whales but no luck. We did get to see several dolphins, some sea lions and a giant sun fish so the trip wasn't a total bust. The boat was clean and it was great to get out on the Pacific. Our tour was on July 5th at 5:00...we froze our butts off. I would recommend wearing a heavy jacket and long pants.

We had a terrific time. Loved the dolphins and informative guide. Wish the whales would've shown up but they were "shy" the day wee went.

Good discount on the website. Parking is tight - give yourself time to find a parking spot. We saw lots of dolphins, sea lions, a big fish but no whales - no one can promise whales. The captain was very knowledgeable but sometimes talked too much.

Very enjoyable

The trip was excellent and was also interesting to learn some new facts about the animals that were seen. I also liked the fact that you were able to buy drinks and food aboard as well. Very enjoyable for me and my husband. A definite must if visiting Dana Point
