Father's Day Outing
Sun, Jun 15, 08   10:00 AM MrsMWalsh Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
We participated in a half day outing. Our Zerve reservations were perfect. They checked us in quickly and easily at Dana Wharf. Once on the boat the crew was super helpful! My husband even won the jackpot and this was his first time fishing. The smell of the hamburgers from the galley were to die for! We had a great time!

Fishing and Fun
Sat, Jun 14, 08   12:00 PM johnwmilton Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
It is not exactly deep sea fishing but still a lot of fun. We mostly fished in waters between 30-50 feet deep. Most of the fish caught were bottom feeders. Not a lot of keepers. It is a great way to spend quality time with your family with a minimum of work on your own part. The helpers on the boat were available to do most of the hard work. However, baiting the hook with a live sardine was a challenge. They did have pieces of squid which made it easier for the squeemish. A lot of standing up. Plus, the boat did not have a lot of room to walk around so you are pretty much stuck in one place. Overall it was a lot of fun and a great way to see the coast line of California.

Had Fun
Tue, Jun 10, 08   10:00 AM MarkRico Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
From AZ. Had a great time eventhough I got skunked with my 11 year old daughter. Can't figure out why. I was using the same technique as everyone else. Person to left caught 2, person to the right caught 4. My daughter didn't fish much, she had fun playing with the live bait. They caught Barracuda like crazy and a couple of bass. We went on HALF PRICE Tuesday and the boat was organized chaos. About 45 fisherpeople on board. I WILL GO AGAIN but I'll bite the bullet for full price, maybe the boat will be HALF full.

Great 9th Birthday Gift for my Son
Fri, Jun 6, 08   6:30 AM kwoodnymph Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Thanks to the cap'n and crew I actually did more gross things in one day than in my whole life - and made my son proud. By the end of the day I was putting on and taking off my own bait, and didn't even mind getting fish scales all over me! We had a great time and caught 7 barracuda! Everyone in the crew was extremely helpful and professional. I highly reccomend this as a fun family outing

The 1/2 day trip was a lot of fun. It was my first time fishing on a boat and It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. The crew is there to help if you need it.

Loved the dolphins as much as the crew

We had a wonderful time on the OCean Adventure Catamaran. My teenaged daughters loved it and want to go back and bring a group of their friends. Captain Larry and the Naturalist, Morgan made the trip a great adventure. We saw thousands of dolphins and one whale. We'll be back!

No Whales or Dolphins and No Voucher
Sun, May 11, 08   5:00 PM laurenxax Female 20-29 Local Family With Children
Although the tickets we purchased for Mother's Day (5/10/08) indicated Whale Watching, we did not see whales. We saw a buoy with seals though (they are always there). At the end of the two hour boat ride, we expected to receive vouchers to come again when whales were more likely to be present (the crew indicated late summer/early fall) as it says on the website. The crew also said the trip was really named a "Ocean Viewing" of some sort, although we did not see that name anywhere on our vouchers, the website or Zerve when we purchased the tickets. We did spend a lot of money on our rather large group and were a bit disappointed we didn't receive the vouchers. The crew did give us a 33% discount ($10 off) a future visit, however, we would have probably spent more time researching other companies if we had known the true value of what we were purchasing. The boat (Dana Pride) was nice. Tickets are not refundable, so make sure everyone in your party will be attending.

It was a great experience
Sun, May 11, 08   1:00 PM hnoriesta Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
The trip was a lot of fun. My kids loves the trip as well. As a matter of fact they want to do it again. All the staff including the captain was so friendly, you can feel they are trying to do their best to make their customers happy and satisfied. It was a lucky day too, we saw Mola-mola the first time, Dolphins in the wild and Gray whales and different kinds of sea birds. My kids never stops talking about the trip until now, and definitely this is a sea adventure trip you and your family don't want to miss. Highly recommended. Thanks guys.
