Ordering tickets was the easiest part of the trip. The boat left late and the deck hands seemed to be uninterested in fishing. I wont be going back. One other thing everyone is casting so be sure to wear glasses so you wont get your eye ripped out.

Zerve ticketing process was easy and the event fun

I did not think I would like the Dana Wharf whale watching ocean adventure, but the Zerve ticketing people were so helpful and enthusiastic that I decided to surprise my guy with advance tickets. It was way better than I had expected. It was pretty exciting when we actually saw not just any whale but a playful humpback whale, which is a variety not usually seen near the coast off Southern California. The staff did a great job of moving the boat around to give us the best possible photo opps and the whale cooperated by coming up again and again and showing us water spouts, summersaults, and that pretty tail. Best of all, the tickets were half price. I would definitely go again. Just be sure to bring lip gloss, sun screen and a warm jacket, as the light reflects off the waves even when there are clouds in the sky, and the weather a mile out on the water is about 10 degrees colder than on shore, with a biting wind for the unprepared.

Bought this as a gift for a couple so didn't go myself, but they said they enjoyed it very much. Didn't see whales, but no big surprise there given the season. Did see some seals & said the trip could've been billed as a tour of the area without mention of whale sightings & they would've enjoyed it anyway. Said it was a nice way to see the surrounding area from a different perspective & the trip was very comfortable & not crowded. Received free passes for a future trip since they didn't see whales.

Nice boat ride

We only saw a few sea lions. Other than that, we didn't see much of anything at all. Yet it was a really nice boat ride and the crew is friendly and fun and at the end they gave us our tickets back so we can try again another day. We honestly had a great time and enjoyed it very much despite not seeing whales or dolphins.

We observed little sea life, not for lack of trying, but the experience was great in spite of that. The boat was very nice and clean and handled the rough seas without difficulty. We were disappointed that we did not see whales or schools of dolphins, but we enjoyed the overall experience.

The boat was nice and we heard others commenting that it was one of the better boats it had been on. The staff was friendly and helpful. They got us to a great location where we caught a 43 lb. halibut! We look forward to coming back. :)

The staff was straightforward, helpful and made an effort to educate us on the sea life around us. They also made an effort to ensure we saw animals...we saw hundres of dolphins surrounding the boat. What a wonderful experience and well worth the money. My 2 year old loved it!

Wonderful and Amazing

The staff and crew were informative and friendly. The catamaran was the perfect boat to enjoy the scenery and watch for any kind of wildlife. We didn't get to see a whale, but our captain found a large pod of dolphins. The dolphins had a blast racing the boat and coming up to swim along side and under the front of the boat. The viewing deck on the bow was perfect for picture taking and for small children to safely get up close and personal. Then after trying hard to find us something else, the captain took us to see a group of sea lions resting on a buoy. The entire 2-hour tour was relaxing and great fun and went by way too fast. Highly recommend the company for the employees and price as well as a wonderful way to enjoy the coast.

The tour started right on time. The boat was clean. The Captain was great as was his first mate. We saw hundreds of dolphins - wow! A couple of sea lions and a rare hump back whale. The Captain has an excellent eye and feel for the whale was able to track and find him as well as keep him in our sites for quite some time. He even stayed out a bit longer because this whale was just hanging out. It was great. They had snacks and beverages available. It couldn't have been any better. The first mate filled us in on interesting details about the whales they see and dolphin in the area. I would highly reommend this tour - even if you get stunked it will be a pleasant journey and memory.

It was very overcast with two seals following us at every stopr we made. The weather and the seals made for poor fishing, but just getting out with your friends and having a good time is a great way to go. The crew and captain were great. Had a great time.
