Dolphin Watching
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Tue, Aug 18, 09   5:30 PM trevor123 Male 20-29 Local Group of Friends
This whale watching trip short changes to the max. They say if you dont see anything you will get another ticket to go out another time, however if you see ONE dolphin and nothing else, they will not refund you. We saw some dolphins and I guess that was better than not seeing anything at all however my group was very disappointed in the experience overall and will not use this company ever again. I would not reccommend unless you want to pay for a 2 1/2 hour standing boat ride only to see nothing. In my book I would give it half of a star out of ten.

Never go on "buy 1 get 1 free day" ! Too many ppl, can't even get a spot to fishing. Better go on some other days.

OK tour, not very informative. Dolphin time great
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sat, Aug 8, 09   5:00 PM clotho Male 30-39 Combination Group of Friends
The tour was just "ok". It was non-informative and more of a "take you there and here it is" tour, especially considering its location next to the Ocean discovery. Of course, we didn't see any whales!! I understand it is a hit and miss, at Newport Beach whale watching they had whale sighting at the same day of 3 Whales. Their tour was not available due to a family death, so my visitors was only here for this weekend so our alternative was Dana point. Unfortunately, we were dissapointed. The time witht the dolphins was great, it was lengthy and abundace of them. It would be a so-so recommendation, an alternative to Newport Beach whale watching tour.

Well worth an afternoon

We enjoyed our 2 1/2-hour trip. We hoped to see a whale but couldn't find one--it apparently is not the prime season for that. However, we saw hundreds of dolphins, which was a new and exciting experience. There was plenty of room on the boat, and on weekends there is a marine biologist on board to assist in identification of species, to provide useful information and to answer questions. You should note that it's not a particularly smooth trip, though the back of the boat is a little smoother. My wife and I have been on a number of catamarans of this size when snorkeling in the Caribbean and have never gotten seasick. My wife was fairly seasick, as were some other passengers, and I was a bit queazy. Nothing a little Dramamine won't cure, so if you're not a veteran on the seas, take it before you go. It will make the trip more enjoyable and will ensure that you won't miss out on anything. Overall, well worth the time and a good value.

Out of the office-gone fishing

Using Zerve to book our fishing trip was easy and convenient. Location and parking was easily accessible. Received great service at check-in. The "Boat Crew" provided outstanding service. Cold beer and awesome cheese burgers, sun shining and catching fish, what more can a guy ask for?!

We all had an enjoyable time on the trip. Our only compliant was that it was a little bit crowded.

Excellent adventure

The ride and tour were excellent. We saw a variety of wildlife including sea lions, dolphins and blue whales. The whale watching was the most spectacular I have ever seen. The naturalist giving the tour was also very good and informative.

We had a great time-- caught lots of bass. One sheephead and a couple of rockfish to keep. I highly recommend.

We live in Dana Point, but our friends came down from Colorado to join us. There were 4 adults and 5 children. Everyone had a great time and all the kids caught fish! The crew is very helpful and will do whatever they can to make your fishing trip experience enjoyable.

Fun trip

Well organized, enjoyable venture. Fishing slow (that's fishing), but weather outstanding. Deck hands good. Captain worked to find fish. Take pleanty of sinkers and hooks. I took my grandson (13). He caught one fish and had fun. On 1/2 price night, get there early as it gets busy if you need to rent rods. Zerve people very friendly and helpful.
