Went on the Spirit of the Dana for a Mother’s Day brunch. It was almost 3 hours at sea with chilly weather and constant fog that was pretty relaxing. It was fun to see the men in my group work to set sail while I snapped pictures. Unfortunately we didn’t see any dolphins or whales. The majority of animals were sea lions and pelicans.
The brunch was more of snacks that went quickly. There were cookies, bite size brownies, croissants, and beverages in the beginning, followed by egg quiches that were good but difficult to eat at times.
The service and trip were nice and relaxing, just prepare to have a real meal after. It was probably good that you don’t get full on this ship so it can settle easy in your stomach considering the possible motion sickness you can experience. I came prepared with Dramamine in my system 🙂
Right down the road was Dana Point wharf where we had fish n’ chips at Jon’s Fish Market. Although they had many options such as fish tacos, swordfish, shrimp cocktails, etc. we all wants the main thing. The batter was crunchy with the fish being tender. Everyone at my table loved it and ate my excess batter that I was too full to eat 🙂
