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.

It was good!

We saw a big nursery pod of dolphins which was great. My girlfriend and other friends loved them. We saw a grey whale with a calf and they liked them too but when we watched them surface for about 5-10 seconds every few minutes for a half hour it was a bit repetitive. It was good, we came to see whale and we saw them. Thanks a lot!

Not Impressed

After the trip was over and we had not seen whales, I felt that I had been had. We were told that we would get a free trip if no whales or dolphins were seen. The first thing the ship did was head out and show us dolphins, which was nice, but not what we had come to see. Then the next hour was spent cruising around supposedly looking for whales. I think they knew there weren't any whales in the area at that time and rather than be truthful up front and since they obviously sell tickets each day whales or no whales, it is a bit of a hustle.

missed the opportunity

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.

Awesome Experience

The tour exceeded our expectations. In fact, the whales and dolphins were so numerous, I almost took seeing them for granted by the end of the tour. Beyond this, the guides did a tremendous job of keeping us informed on what we were seeing, and they were incredibly helpful with any questions. Highly recommended.

The 10:00 tour was not crowded so allowed easy viewing. We saw several whales. I love whale watching so can never have a bad time.

The crew really made efforts to show us the blue whale and we saw where it was

(water spout) but the whale wasn't so cooperative in coming above the surface! The crew then made a successful effort to catch up with a pod of dolphins and we were able

to watch the dolphins on both sides of the boat swimming and jumping out of the water. This was a neat experience! The boat was not too crowded so it made viewing easy.

I would recommend this cruise to others.

Really a great experiences

My husband and I had a lovely time. My four year old enjoyed the sea lions and dolphins but seeing the whales was not something she really enjoyed because she couldn't really see. But it was a wonderful change up for my husband and me and all in all it was a great morning! The captain was also wonderfully informative and entertaining.

Not because we did not see any whales, but because there were too many people and even if the whales did come by not everyone could visualize them. Unless you are standing at the "exact" spot or you have a bench up on top. I would have paid extra to sit on top if offered instead of "first come, first serve" . But the weather was beautiful and so I enjoyed the beautiful ocean and land views...
