No fish, but good bites.
Sun, Dec 23, 12   6:30 AM ANNA92688 Female Under 20 Local Group of Friends
We had no keepers this time, we caught a few small fish and that's it. The crew were nice. We were hoping to catch more fish and keeper fish. We used live squid bait, but it didn't work for us. I wish they had that and the usual live little fish. I love fishing anyways, but this is too expensive for my pocket. I'd do it again, but only once or twice every year. We saw many pods of dolphins and even a baby one. Being on a boat is nice, but costs too much. We like to go to the San Clemente pier, because we only have to pay for parking and bait. For this activity we have to pay for the ticket, a day license, pole rentals(since ours are not the best), not to mention the optional jackpot, tips, and fish cleaning by the crew. We love it, but it's better just to go to the pier or do what some crazy people do, which is fishing on a kayak, which then it would be cheaper to buy a year fishing license. Try the boat thing, maybe you'll be more lucky than us and catch the big ones!

fun boat ride

Though we didn't see whales, we did see a couple different dolphin species. The last species of dolphins that we saw were super friendly and came right up to the boat! TIP: it gets cold out in the waters. Bring a light jacket.

perfect afternoon boat ride

The captain is so knowledgeable and is very well connected amongst boaters in the area - so he was able to listen to the radio to find out exactly where the dolphins and whales were located so that we could go see them. He found a pod of 1800 common dolphins, and it was so breathtaking! Would definitely do this tour again.

The counter staff was very helpful. I requested that my wife couldn't stand very long and they made the effort to see that we could board first. The tour was great. i would recomend it for all.

Good value if you bring children 14 and under
Sun, Oct 14, 12   12:45 PM fcline Male 50-59 Local Group of Friends
We didn't catch much in the way of fish (about 3 ounces of rock cod filet after the fish was cleaned!) but it was a fun day nonetheless. The entire haul for the boat was skimpy as well. Bass, Sheephead, Rock Cod. The best part of the trip was that each child under 14 years of age (with paid adult) gets free boat ticket, free rod/reel rental, and that child does not need a fishing license! This was an afternoon 1/2 day trip. I would recommend an early morning trip and possibly a 3/4 day trip if you are serious about catching something a little bigger than I did. I brought my own food, so I don't know how good the food was from the boat galley - but it was less expensive than I thought it would be - meals less than $10.00.

Can be better?
Sat, Oct 13, 12   12:00 PM garatli Male 30-39 Local Group of Friends
I been on this same trip before, and unfortunately was not satisfied as the same time. The boat is over crowded and the crow was not very friendly, its like they woke up on the wrong side of the bed. They were not enjoying their job and you could feel that they are there just because they have to be there. Lines get tangled from over filling the boat with people. Fishing wasn't that great also, not a lot of fish was caught, Would I go again? probably not

Great evening!

My husband and I went on the 4pm cruise. It was amazing. The boat wasn't too crowded and we had a great view the whole time. We didn't see any whales but did see a whole pod of dolphins. The crew was curteous and knowledgeable. Great value for a fun evening. We will definitely be going again in hopes to see a whale.

We saw lots of dolphins and were told which kind they were and the routines of the dolphins. The boat was very clean and the crew very knowledgeable. Well worth the money..

Great little Getaway
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sun, Sep 30, 12   2:00 PM Lcrowley3 Female 60-69 Local Family Without Children
What a great way to get on the water, enjoy the SoCal sun, and experience nature! The staff are friendly and helpful. The boat is just big enough and not crowded. From the time you leave the dock it is a wonderful and relaxing experience. You never lose sight of land even though you go out about a mile. The contrast of open sea ahead and mountains to the rear makes you realize how amazing California is. As your eyes scan the horizon for the tell-tale "puff" of a whale you note the deep greens and blue of the water. Suddenly there dolphins breaching just ahead! Take some videos with your phone so you can re-live the motion as well as the action. 2 hours is just enough..and if you don't find whales the company gives half off coupons for the next trip you take, and once you've gone out there will definitely be a next trip! Grab some food at Turk's either before or after your trip. Great bar with food place, lots of atmosphere that will remind you of days past, and delicious food!

Using Zerve eliminates the need to stand in line to procure tickets. I don't have to worry about not being able to get tickets because I'm quaranteed a spot on the boat as soon as I book.
