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?

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

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!

Zerve provides a convenient way to book fishing

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.

I loved this boat trip. It was a very nice celebration of the equinox with the dolphins, great people, friends and music. The captain took us straight to the dolphins and made our experience very magical.

Very informative
Mon, Sep 17, 12   12:00 PM DGVincent Female 60-69 Local Family Without Children
The captain was very knowledgeable and passed on to us a lot of information about the sealife. It was a smooth ride and was fun when he speeded up to get further out to sea. (8 miles) Weather was beautiful. We only saw dolphins and some sun fish but enjoyed it anyway. It was good customer service to give us 1/2 price passes for the next time we want to go. I greatly recommend this outing.

We had a good time. Bummer that we didn't see any whales, but we saw a TONNN of dolphins, and they up close too! And they even gave us a pass to come back for FREE, to try and see whales again.
