Great trip
1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises

I really thought that whale watching was only in the winter. I figured in August we could see some dolphins maybe, some seals but have a nice cruise. We saw several blue whales -- and far closer than I would have thought. Great day, one of the best of the summer (mid August). It was a great experience. Of course, we hit a great day, but still. Price on Tuesday was quite affordable as well. .

It will be excellent short day trip for anyone

Specially in California, nice sunny day on the oceanside will never forget. All the services by Zerve well scheduled on time and the narrator on the boat was excellent too. We had very good time and had fun. I will recommand if you stay one night in the resort by the sea that added great value for our trip. Thank you Zerve!!!

Fogged out but will return

The day started sunny and warm. Our grandchildren were so excited about the very good chance of seeing whales. However, a fog bank rolled in and they ended up being so bored they fell asleep! Dana Wharf gave us all free tickets for another day so we'll try again before the season is over. All in all we had a fun boat ride.

It was an interesting experience. The crew was very helpful. If iit was a little bit busier than it would've been better but it was still a good time.

WE didn't seen any whales but still had a good time. We really enjoyed all the dolphins. We took lots of pictures and many of the dolphins turned out great. Would certainly recommend this trip to friends. Having the half price certalnly helped with out large group. Thank you so much. Also my son in law took his son (11) on the sportfishing cruise. They both had a wonderful time. Our grand son had a 3 foot barracuda up to the boat and the staff helping him trying to hook the barracuda, broke the line instead. Another story of the one who got away!

We have two college age daughters, and it's not always easy to find things to do that we will all like. We all loved this. We saw 4 blue whales.

Fantastic voyage!

The half-priced whale watching trip out of Dana Point was wonderful. Our captain said that we saw things which he had never seen in his 30+ years of doing these cruises. We saw a humpback whale having fun with a pod of dolphins, following them along, perhaps looking for food. Very comfortable boat with an outstanding crew.

This was a very exiciting expidition. I enjoyed everything about this trip. The boat ride in itself was awesome and then to see all the dolphins; literally hundreds of them swimming right in front of and before the boat. Then we followed a blue whale which surfaced about every 10 minutes, just as the captain said. He was very informative.I got some great photos and video. I loved it and can't wait to do it again.

went with 8 family members and everyone enjoyed being out on the ocean. at first all we saw was lots of dolphin but toward the end of our tour the Captain spotted some gray whales and followed them north along the coastline. we were late getting back but nobody cared because we were enjoying the whales and dolphins. the Captain was very informative. Loved it!

Saw whales, as promised, as well as dolphins.

The skipper and crew were awesome. There was a marine expert on board who narrated and explained behaviors. They let all the kids on board go into the wheel house and "drive" the boat. Although I had no children with me I thought this was a very wonderful thing. We saw whales, they explained how to spot them and track them. We saw so many dolphins it was like being in a Jacque Cousteau show. The dolphins were worth the price of the ticket!

Crew and day were great, but no fish. This is my second trip out of Dana Point and we only caught two. Out of a group of 40, the boat was lucky to catch 15

We were extremely happy with our whale watching cruise. We saw a whale, and watched it dive and come back up for a long time. We also saw lots of dolphins frolicking. The ride was nice and smooth and not too crowded. I would definitely recommend this cruise.
