Well worth the money

The crew is very knowledgable and very fun if you just take the time and talk to them. I'm sure they'd rather converse than lecture their patrons. Also they do not pressure you to buy anything or give them tips!!! I know that some people familiar with boat trips know the deal.

I would definitely come back again soon to these guys.

The tour started right on time. The boat was clean. The Captain was great as was his first mate. We saw hundreds of dolphins - wow! A couple of sea lions and a rare hump back whale. The Captain has an excellent eye and feel for the whale was able to track and find him as well as keep him in our sites for quite some time. He even stayed out a bit longer because this whale was just hanging out. It was great. They had snacks and beverages available. It couldn't have been any better. The first mate filled us in on interesting details about the whales they see and dolphin in the area. I would highly reommend this tour - even if you get stunked it will be a pleasant journey and memory.

Wonderful and Amazing

The staff and crew were informative and friendly. The catamaran was the perfect boat to enjoy the scenery and watch for any kind of wildlife. We didn't get to see a whale, but our captain found a large pod of dolphins. The dolphins had a blast racing the boat and coming up to swim along side and under the front of the boat. The viewing deck on the bow was perfect for picture taking and for small children to safely get up close and personal. Then after trying hard to find us something else, the captain took us to see a group of sea lions resting on a buoy. The entire 2-hour tour was relaxing and great fun and went by way too fast. Highly recommend the company for the employees and price as well as a wonderful way to enjoy the coast.

The staff was straightforward, helpful and made an effort to educate us on the sea life around us. They also made an effort to ensure we saw animals...we saw hundres of dolphins surrounding the boat. What a wonderful experience and well worth the money. My 2 year old loved it!

We observed little sea life, not for lack of trying, but the experience was great in spite of that. The boat was very nice and clean and handled the rough seas without difficulty. We were disappointed that we did not see whales or schools of dolphins, but we enjoyed the overall experience.

We decided to to the Catamarn Cruise on 6/2/2010. We had a party of eight people four adults and four kids. Purchasing the tickets from Zerve was very easy and we got exactly what we paid for. The captain and 1st mate were great. The boat was wonderful and the weather couldn't have been better. We saw two different whales and LOTS of dolphins. The experience was one that the kids will always remember.

Thank you for a safe and wonderful experience.

This was our 2nd whale watching trip but the 1st one here in Dana Point & this was way better than the one we did in Santa Barbara. The crew here was very friendly & informative where in Santa Barbara it was more like a cruise & the guide there was unimpressive. We saw 3 blue whales,8-10 bottlenose dolphins & hundreds of common dolphins plus sea otters,Santa Barbara 0 whales,0 dolphins but we did see sea otter,whoopie. Santa Barbara was a big disappointment! This whale watching was fun & very exciting & so it turned out to be a great birthday. We would go again & we recommend it & have. George & Lisa,Riverside,CA
