If only the whales had cooperated.

The boat trip alone is great, but it would have helped if the whales had cooperated and been present. We did see some California sea lions and the discussion about them and how they are different from seals was informative. We didn't see any other marine life except for sea birds until the very end when the boat ran thru some bait fish being chased by some dolphins. There was a potential sighting of a whale, but it was already too far behind us as we entered the harbor and we couldn't take the time to verify what it was. The captain made sure that we had the opportunity to go out again free of charge, which he really didn't have to do.

Working with the people of Zerve was a pleasant experience. They patiently answered all my questions. When rain threatened our day to go out whale watching, they patiently helped out by moving our date from a Saturday to a Monday. When our party increased from two to four persons, there was no problem getting the extra tickets. I appreciated the attached map and instructions to get to the Dana Point wharf. Thank you all. We had a great time. I recommend this activity for everyone, all ages, all backgrounds.

Staff was well informed and interesting. We knew it was early in the season for the grey whales and we did get to see 4 varieties of dolphins. Very nice experience.

Whale watch.

We saw lots of dolphins but no whales. It is my understanding that you may be stretching the time that whales are in the area and the likelihood of seeimg them this time of year is very low. To my knowledge no one on your tours saw them that day. Perhaps you should reconsider your policy to avoid negative feeback to potential customers.

We enjoyed this cruise very much. We did not see any whales but saw hundreds of playful dolphins. The crew spent time making sure that everyone was able to enjoy the dolphins swimming around the boat.

we didn't see any whales or dolphins and therefore got two free tickets for a future ride with no expiration date. That was worth it
