Excellent fishing opportunity
Fri, Aug 24, 12   10:00 AM runneruf Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
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......

Amazing!! Blue Whales Abound!!
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!!

Excellent Service!

We had an amazing day whale watching! We saw about 6-10 whales (never know which are the same!) It was beautiful! We also had some playful dolphins swimming with our boat. And speaking of boat, it was smooth, clean and not crowded. The 2 captains were full of information about what we were seeing and gave us an amazing day. Getting the tickets online using Zerve was easy! Would highly recommend this company!

We were very lucky to see some amazing whales. Weather was amazing, whales were incredible to see up close and personal. Captain and crew were extremely knowledgeable and excited about the whales and what we were all witnessing. A fantastic trip.

A Fun Afternoon

My wife and I had a great time seeing two blue whales up close for the first time. We were as close to them we really wanted to be considering the size of the whales and the size of the boat. The captain followed the whales the whole time we were on at the limits of the cruise.

Awesome Activity!
Tue, Aug 14, 12   12:00 PM JenJensen Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Our party of 5 enjoyed a 2 hr whale watching tour out of the Dana Point Harbor... it was awesome! My college age daughter asked if we were doing this just to kill time, and as it turns out this was one of her favorite activities of our entire trip! We saw dolphins w/their babies, grey whales and a seal or sea lion. The 12pm cruise wasn't crowded, the crew were friendly and we took lunch aboard with us. I highly recommend the 2hrs trip for families w/kids (along with some meclazine... non-drowsy medication for motion sickness). Everyone did great!

Ordering tickets online for half price Tuesday was a bonus! We will definitely do this again.

Fun, Exciting and very Informational!!!

LOVED THE WHALEWATCHING TRIP!! Even through we only saw one whale(!!!), it was still exciting and fun!!

Crew was helpful and did a great job navigating to enable us to see what was available!! This was my second time on this tour as my husband was unable to make it the first time!! Fortunately, he was able to go this time and my daughter and husband both LOVED IT and want to return again and again!! We'll be back...for sure on our next trip to Laguna Beach!!

We were able to see two blue whales and a sea lion and even ride with the dolphins!! It was amazing, we are so glad we went and are planning a whole or half day trip next time we are in town.

Wonderful Crew!
Mon, Aug 13, 12   12:00 PM GeorgeZ Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I have to say, this is a very well organized establishment. From buying the e-tickets online up to the minute of the actual tours, it all went smooth as planned. We went on a Whale Watch tour with Ocean Adventures as well as Sportfishing on Reel Fun, it was a wonderful experience. The people who work there know what good customer service is all about. We will definitely use them again. Keep up the good work DW!

Boat ride boring for kids when no fish to be seen
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

I enjoyed the ride but the children got bored when there were no more fish to be seen. If I go back to Calif. next year I will definitely use my free ticket and do the ride again. Hopefully we will find whales to see. Crew was nice and friendly.

worthless adventure
Sat, Aug 11, 12   6:30 AM brucechurruc Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
this is the third time we have used this organization and the third time it has been a waste of money and time. They stay close enough to shore I could swim and couldn't find a fish if it jumped in the boat. We will never use this company again.

Wonderful amount of dolphins!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Fri, Aug 10, 12   6:00 PM heavystarch Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
We witnessed the most dolphins we have ever seen on an excursion like this. We've been to Hawaii and numerous other whale watching locations. Unfortunately we didn't get to see any blue whales on the trip but we were offered a free return pass and 50% off another trip so that more than makes up for it.

Awful time, terrible service, overcrowded, no fish
Fri, Aug 10, 12   5:30 PM BryceLatimer Male 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
This was one of the worst experiences I have ever had. They allowed way too many people onto the boat and lines were getting crossed left and right. We spent more time untangling lines than fishing. It was clear they are more concerned with making money that allowing the customer to have an enjoyable time. If you want to fish and enjoy yourself DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!
