How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This trip never happened. I had to drive to Newport beach (40 mile each way from my home) I received no cancellation notification and they did not even have a boat going out. I have to wait 20 minutes for the manager to call another boss. They tried to offer me whale watching tickets, but I had all my fishing gear ready to go, brought a buddy along who changed his weekend plans to go. This sounds like a great deal, but this is my second time i had a trip cancelled. At least the first time Goldstar did call and let me know the day before. This was not the case this time, and the landing confirmed they never had a boat scheduled for that afternoon. I think what happens is the landing calls goldstart to assist in filling private charters, but when they fill up at the 11's hours they bounce the GoldStar people. Either way I can pay the extra $20 savings go to a landing which offers free parking and less of a crowd, and I still only pay $5.00 more. Very frustrated.
