Great time!

Love being on a boat, it's a relaxing time! We saw a school of tens of dolphins and a Blue Wale, the Captain was nice enough to spend more time to wait for the whale to come up again! We were late 5 min but nobody complained, we saw the Blue Whale!

Terrific outing even without the whales.

Staff was well informed and interesting. We knew it was early in the season for the grey whales and we did get to see 4 varieties of dolphins. Very nice experience.

Great Trip and Beautiful Sunset!

What a lovely trip! It gets cold on the boat, so have very warm jackets/hats/gloves ready. We saw a lot of dolphins (three different kinds), and also saw two sea lions. What a fun way to spend the afternoon, and the view from the ocean was gorgeous. I would definitely go again!

You need to understand the ticketing

Our boat ride was great. We didn't see whales, but we spent time with two large, playful pods of dolphins. They put on an amazing show, even purposely swimming right under our boat. My one frustration happened when I tried to order tickets. When I first tried to order in mid-November, Zerve gave me a choice between the next two Tuesdays -- Nov 17 or Nov 24. I wanted Tuesday, Nov 24 because it was my daughter's birthday. Up until Nov 17th, every time I tried to order tickets for the following Tue the 24th, I would get an error message. I only wanted 2 tickets, but the computer wouldn't accept an order for less than 6. However, on Wed Nov 18th, I was able to order two tickets for the 24th without a problem. So if that happens to you, wait to order your tickets until there is no other trip scheduled before the one you want to take. Other than that quirk, the trip was fine.

Delightful afternoon with whales and dolphins

We learned of this excursion while guests at the Laguna Surf Resort. We spent a great two hours in search of dolphins and whales. We ended up in the midst of a large pod of common dolphins which were playful and entertaining. On the way back to shore we were lucky to spot a fin whale and observe its activities . The cruise was comfortable, and the crew friendly and helpful. There was ample room for the passengers, so the visibility was great. I would recommend this cruise at full price; but at half price, it was an exceptionally good deal.

An Exciting Experience

It took a little while for us to find anything but that was also part of the fun as the anticipation builds. It was great when we finally spotted something on the horizon and it turned out to be a massive pod of dolphins. We also spotted a marlin jumping out of the water. And it was all topped off with us actually spotting a finned whale. It was an amazing experience witnessing these beautiful animals in their natural enviornment. An experience we will never forget. We would highly recommend this to everyone. P.S. The ride was smooth and comfortable.

My cousin, myself and granddaughter enjoyed a wonderful afternoon at sea. Our captain was very exceptional doing his best to find God's creatures for us. He went out of his way and we stayed out longer in order to do that. We saw one whale but hundreds of dolphin. It was great, I would do it again and again even if we were not able to see the animals,

Everyone LOVED it!
Tue, Sep 15, 09   11:00 AM blittle Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My 65 year old dad said it was one of the coolest experiences of his life! His wife agreed. Warning: several of the people in our group who waited til they were on board to take motion sickness medicine were miserably queasy the whole time. The one lady who usually has motion sickness took her medicine an hour before boarding as the directions state & she was fine. So take some over-the-counter motion sickness medicine and you'll be in for the experience of a lifetime. Think you can do without it, and you are gonna ruin a great experience. Sighted: whales, dolphins, sea otters and everyone loved it!

'thar she blows!'
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

We had a good time during this short cruise. I didn't expect to see any whales as it's not the high season for whale watching. We were able to follow two blue whales and enjoyed the captain's exclamations of 'thar she blows!'. we also so 10+ dolphins and were delighted when they would ride up along side the boat. Overall a good trip.
