Too Bad I Didn't Get To Go.
Sat, Apr 17, 10   6:30 AM ShawnJones Male 40-49 Local Individual
I won't be using Zerve again. We were going down to visit my in-laws and I had booked the trip for the next morning. Unfortunately, my father-in-law had some heart trouble that night, and after spending all night in the emergency room and his being admitted, obviously I didn't get to go fishing. I called the company and was told about the 'no-reschedule' policy' I understand the need for it, but it did cost me $40. So in the future, while I will still go fishing, I won't be reserving ahead of time. I would rather miss the trip then lose the money in this economy. Shawn Jones Roseville, CA

It was out of your control if there are no whales, you did try to find some for us and we will be back to look for some again soon... Loved seeing the other wildlife and the overall trip and experience. Just can not give you the 5 STARS without seeing the whales. Thank you !! We DO RECOMMEND this trip to everyone !!!!!!

Dolphins at a Discount
Tue, Apr 13, 10   12:00 PM JeffWilk Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Went on the Whale/Dolphin watch cruise Tuesday 4/13. It greatly exceeded our expectations. While we did not see any whales, we did see and enjoy 600-800 dolphins jumping and playing for an extended amount of time. We were on the 12:00 cruise and were delighted with the accomodations and crew. The crew could not have been more knowledgeable and entertaining. The cruise, alone, was worth the money. The added plus of seeing so many dolphins and listening to the crew members was a bonus. When we are in California again, this is a must attraction for us.

No whales sighted on the "whale watching tour"
Sun, Apr 11, 10   12:00 PM syedasad Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We were pretty disappointed with not seeing any whales or any fish/mammal for that part. Towards the last 15 mins of the 2 hour cruise; we did see some dolphins. The crew informed us that dolphins are part of the whale family; so no reimbursements or credits for future tours. Crew was very nice and friendly, but overall trip was disappointment.

UNfortunately my fiancee became ill that morning so we did not go... we were told that there were no refunds or opportunities to re-book... which would be my only complaint.

Dolphin Watching
Sat, Apr 10, 10   12:00 PM AndrewSMoore Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
We had a good time but at no point did they try to look for whales. They knew exactly where the dolphin pod was and headed straight there and then stayed there for the whole time. The tour should be called dolphin watching with the rare occurance that you might see a whale.

wonderful how they describe some of the animals you see - just isn't a boat floating around - they do a really good job. Accomodations are really great.

The 1/2 day trip was well organized & the deck hands were helpfull. Although there were very few fish caught on this trip...the experince was great. It was my sons first time & he really enjoyed it. We look forward to the next trip.

More Dolphin Watching than Whale Watching
Wed, Apr 7, 10   12:00 PM ajd1000 Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
Since Whales are a bit hard to come by, at least that is what we heard, it may be best to play up the dolphins and play down the whales. Perhaps that's what whale watching is, but we simply look for and searched for whales, with no luck. Kids did not care, the dolphins were way cooler anyway. We loved it and will go again, but this time, we will call it "Dolphin Watching"

Had a good time but whale watching was very slow and only got too see one whale at the very end of the tour. Saw no dolphins at all. Was going to ask for a refund or another day the go whale watching but grand daugther was a little sea sick and forgot too ask. Please send me 3 tickets to try it again. Grand daughter promise we will have better luck. Scott Burns

Non-smoking ship
Tue, Apr 6, 10   12:00 PM JohnBonnell Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
The activity was good we all had fun eventhough we didn"t see any whales. The biggest concern my wife has is we were under the impersion that the ship was non-smoking. My wife was sitting on the top deck and the captain was smoking so much that the smoke just kept coming out around the window and blowing into the seats up stairs. This gave my wife a headeck and made the rest of the crusie uncomfortable for many of the other passengers.

Great day on the water

The sun, sea and coastline were beautiful, the crew were courteous and informative. We didn't see any whales, but we saw dolphins and had a wonderful time. We understood that the whales don't show up on demand and went with the idea in mind that we would be happy with whatever we saw.
