My mother, best friend, and myself had a great time on this whale watching excursion. We saw two grey whales, a pod of dolphins, and some adorable seals. Thankfully the crew also handed out 50% off coupons for the next time and I can't wait to use them! Thanks for a great tiem!

No whales to be seen...

I scoured the website to get up to date info about the recent whale sightings so that I could make an informed decision about booking this activity but I found none, and when i tried to call I was only able to reach the Zerve service...which was no service to me.

A Beautiful Day

The sun was out after several rainy days and the sky was so blue and we wanted a day out. The boat ride was beautiful and calming and even though we didn't see any whales or dolphins we still loved the outing. The fact that we can go again when ever we are ready is a bonus. It was amazing to be on the ocean and be able to see snow capped mountains, sail boats and all the ocean has to offer. It was just a beautiful day and even the kids were not disappointed.

Exciting and Well Worth the Money

Our family day out included my husband and I and our two boys ages 5 and 9 there was also my brother and sister-inlaw and their three kids ages 4,6 and 8. My husband's mum and dad were with us to who were visiting from Scotland, UK. My husband and I have always wanted to do Whale watching as it is my husband's favourite mammal. Although when we went out we never saw any whales but we saw pods and pods of dolphins who swam right by our boat, we quickly got the video camera out and took lots of photo's and video's. It was a beautiful sunny day, the sea water was calm it was a perfect afternoon with the family the kids were in their element and had a great time. Sharon Walton

Terrific experience. Saw 2 gray whales, a pack of sea lions, and even had a pod of dolphins swimming with our boat. The food on board was very good, and the prices weren't raised like you might expect. Make sure to pack some Dramamine, though, they don't have any available for purchase on board.

An enjoyable experience

The cruise was a great. We saw a Blue whale and her calf, a Fin whale, and sea lions. The captain did a nice job of keeping the ship out of the glare while we watched the whales take thier breaths. I would suggest being on the upper deck the view might be better. However, highly enjoyable anywhere on the ship. If you are on the fence than get off it and go already, it is a great time.

Not that great; barely saw one whale
Wed, Dec 26, 07   2:00 PM Shaista Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
The staff were friendly, but we only saw one whale, and barely even saw one at that, he was really hard to spot. Nonetheless, that fulfilled the guarantee of seeing a whale, so we didn't get another trip. I think they need to make the tours longer than two hours to give more time for looking for whales. Two hours is not long enough. My nieces and myself were very disappointed.
