My son desperately wanted to go fishing during our recent trip to L.A. Our 1/2 day trip on Reel Fun was perfect. I was able to rent gear, and we could even order lunch on the boat. The captain and crew worked hard to try and make sure everyone caught a fish. My son caught a calico bass which made his trip to CA a success.

I went at the recommendation of a family member who lives near Dana Point and was very pleased by my experience. Great crew, nice vessel, informative excursion, reasonably priced food and drinks (including adult beverages) and overall an awesome experience seeing whales and dolphins.

Had a nice time. Saw a few whales but no dolphins. Would recommend just for the boat ride. Crew was helpful

We choose the 10 am trip and it was perfect in every way. The crew are very good and are very experienced in what they do. They offer snacks and drinks on board and there is a charge for these. The pictures your able to take make this trip well worth the money !
