2 hour whale watching tour

Nice and pleasant short trip.

Saw a few whales and dolphin but didn't get very close.

The captain was very informative, but rambled on a bit too long, especially considering that passengers were trying to take video of the whales.

Decent Run

At first we were a bit disappointed because it was quite crowded and we were not seeing any whales or dolphins, only a few sea lions on the way out to sea. But towards the time we needed to turn around to had back we were able to see a group of dolphins and a whale with her baby. The crew followed them for a little extra time just so we could see them. It was quite difficult to hear what the crew was saying and it was at times hard to find a spot to see clearly due to all the people on the boat but overall it was a decent experience.

Whale Palooza

The Captain took us to some great locations and it really paid off. We saw two large groups of gray whales (11-15 in each) and a bald eagle on Catalina Island and offshore bottle nose dolphins jumping in our wake. It was warm and beautiful and the crew and Captain were as excited and enthusiastic about our adventure as we were!

Boat ride was good - Zerve e ticket a little odd

The whale watch tour was good. The ticket experience with Zerve was a little weird. Not sure why they can't put the barcode/ticket confirmation within the email and not as a separate web page that needs to be printed out. Should be more like groupon where you show the code from your phone.

You will see whales, and MORE!

Excellent value. The skipper was a whale "expert" and shared fascinating info through out the trip while safely allowing us to view the beautiful animals as close as possible. As a bonus, we were taken into a "mega pod" of dolphins, which was incredible! The tour was the perfect length, and you can't beat the So. Cal weather. Highly recommended.

Amazing dolphin stampede
Sat, Jan 17  12:00 PM Annwolf Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Captain worked hard to find whales or dolphin pod. He did it even thou we ended up being 30 min late returning. It was truly worth the chase to get where they were playing
