Although we did not get to see any whales we did get to see dolphins and other sea animals. The crew was constantly giving us fun facts about the animals and about the local area. We will definitely be doing this again when we come to town.

This was an excellent experience. The crew understand how to take care of customers with a smile and were very helpful. I would definitely go back and recommend others book a fishing day with this crew.

Well worth the time and money invested

We happened to pick a beautiful SoCal Saturday afternoon. Even though the day's previous groups had apparently not seen any whales, we figured we'd enjoy the cruise. To our joy, we had a whale spotted within 10 minutes (a rather camera-shy whale, but it apparently had other things on its agenda). The guide did a great job of narrating what we might expect, as well as giving interesting information on the actual spotting. The captain and guide also decided about midway that we should change our route to try for more sightings, and we were pleased to cruise into a group of dolphins, who added to the "success" of the cruise by swimming along with our boat for awhile. All in all, I would very much recommend this activity, though I would have to say that, on a day such as that, the cruise would have been pleasurable even without having seen any whales.

The crew was helpful and fun. The weather didn't cooperate, but the captain made up for it. We caught two rockfish and a crab! Overall great time for a great price.

All 3 members of crew were very outgoing & very knowledgable of area & sea life. Had a great time even though we didn't see any whales on this trip. We were able to see plenty of dolphins & sea lions. Had a great time.

Worth it at half-price

We enjoyed the boat ride, the waves and sunshine, and a couple of pods of dolphins. The time spent on lookout for a grey whale some fisherman had spotted in the area was exciting, though it was never spotted. We were happy with the parking, the staff, and the options for lunch afterwards. At half price, it was worth it. Back at the dock we were handed half-off coupons to try again, but decided it had been fun enough.

Very simple process going through Zerve - the Whale watching company instantly recognized our tickets, the entire process took only minutes, and they were able to get us on an earlier trip. Will definitely use this service again!

Loved whale watching!
Sun, Apr 1, 12   10:00 AM UMBROBBIE Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We thoroughly enjoyed our whale watching excursion! The crew was great and started by making sure we knew the wind and waves would be a bit rough to make sure we were prepared, though it didn't really bother us. Honestly, it was a pleasure just to be out on the boat which was a good sized ship and was not overly crowded the day we went. As we headed out, they were sure to spend a few minutes pointing out the sea lions on the nearest buoy allowing everyone plenty of time for a good view or picture. The crew mentioned they were coordinating with other ships in the area sharing information on sightings to increase our chance of success despite the less than ideal weather. We were well rewarded! Though we only saw one whale, we were able to get extremely close and lingered for several of the whales' surfacing cycles. We appreciated how informative the crew was and the enclosed galley that offered drinks and snacks for sale. The trip was both relaxing and thrilling and we will definitely go again on our next visit in the area.

I highly recommend this particular tour and tour company. The staff was very friendly & knowledgable. The boat was large enough for all passengers with room to spare. We did see one whale, which is what we wanted to see, so it worked out great! Wonderful Experience. I would definitely do it again!

The Dana Pride was a nice boat with informative narrative. Some of the family ate from snack bar and said it was very good. We did not see much sea life on our day but the cruise was fun anyway.

All boat personnel were extremely friendly and helpful. Within 45 minutes we spotted three Gray whales and followed them for about another 45. One of the boat staff gave excellent commentary including whale facts. The boat was clean and easy to navigate around.
