The crew were so friendly and really enjoy their job. The boat is comfortable with plenty of room. Only wish we could have stayed longer but didn't find the whale until about time to go in. But got a few really great pictures. Our visit was too short but there can not be a bad trip when you can see something as majestic as these beautiful creatures. I am already planning my next trip.

A wonderful experience. Highly Recommended
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Tue, Jul 7, 09   5:00 PM rae972 Female 50-59 Unspecified Other
We were very lucky, the weather was perfect and we saw lots of dolphins and several blue whales. The guide and crew were courteous and were able to put us at the right spot, at the right time for optimal viewing of the whales when they surfaced. The whole experience was wonderful and we highly recommend it.

Horrible Trip!!

So i went on the same boat last summer and it was great. Caught lots of fish and even had god food, but this timeit was a different story. ther didnt even take us to a good spot didnt chum the water out of the 30 people on the boat 10 fish were caught the food took a good 30 minutes to get to you and the crew was horrible. DONT GO ON THIS TRIP!!!!! I may be young but i am an experienced fisherman and i think this was a waist of money. Pick another company to give your monry to.

The trip was very fun. The crew was frendly te captain knew all the good pots and the fishing was great until they moved the boat from the kelt beds. everyone was pulling up nice fish in the kelt beds but the captain moved the boat and everyone got angry and didnt catch a fish. but other than that the trip was very fun and was the perfect lenght.

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!

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!

NOT AS ADVERTISED
Sun, Jan 10, 10   12:00 PM racellemanes Female 70+ Local Family With Children
The boat was not on time but we were. The boat was small, bare, the galley - ha ha.

Advertised as a galley to buy food. There were soft drinks and chips. The crew (we only saw one crew member in the galley) was remote and far from interested in us. After all we were a family with two small children - 5 and 8, mom and dad and grandmother. There was virtually no education. Just a few small facts about porpoises from a crew that was unseen, sitting in a top cabin. Some scattered facts about gray whales.

I would never take this boat again. It was a bare minimum trip.

Ticket buyer of about $130.00.

I took a similar trip when my son was in middle school out of San Pedro that was so much better. Not comparable really.

My husband and I took our 6 year old daughter who had a blast. It was relaxing to be out on the water and the crew was quite personable! Look forward to our next time out.

Well worth an afternoon
Sat, Aug 8, 09   3:30 PM rabltd Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We enjoyed our 2 1/2-hour trip. We hoped to see a whale but couldn't find one--it apparently is not the prime season for that. However, we saw hundreds of dolphins, which was a new and exciting experience. There was plenty of room on the boat, and on weekends there is a marine biologist on board to assist in identification of species, to provide useful information and to answer questions.

You should note that it's not a particularly smooth trip, though the back of the boat is a little smoother. My wife and I have been on a number of catamarans of this size when snorkeling in the Caribbean and have never gotten seasick. My wife was fairly seasick, as were some other passengers, and I was a bit queazy. Nothing a little Dramamine won't cure, so if you're not a veteran on the seas, take it before you go. It will make the trip more enjoyable and will ensure that you won't miss out on anything.

Overall, well worth the time and a good value.

We had a great time and were able to see 1 grey whale, and multiple dolphins. Crew were very friendly and seemed very knowledgeable about water life. Will definately go again.

The counter staff was very helpful. I requested that my wife couldn't stand very long and they made the effort to see that we could board first.

The tour was great. i would recomend it for all.

The twilight fishing trip was overall a good experience. The staff is friendly and helpful. However for family with small children the boat is smaller than expected. I am willing to pay more per person if we can go on bigger boat with some cabin seating. More description and pictures of the boat provided on the website would be helpful.
