Great trip, great crew, great fun
Sat, Jan 31  6:30 AM lils22 Female 20-29 Local Couple on a Date
We had a fantastic time on the 1/2 day morning trip. It was my boyfriend's first time ocean fishing and together we caught 13 fish. Our crew (Pika Jordan and Mike) were helpful and attentive. Jordan gave us incredible service; he helped us set up our rods, was right there to help with a fish or lost hook, and has a great attitude.

I'd go again and recommend this trip!

The crew was very helpful, informative and friendly. I enjoyed the narration about the whales and their migration. We saw many whales that day and the weather was perfect.

It was a real fun day, and absolutely beautiful day to go out on a catamaran. We saw whales and dolphins and sea lions birds and was just a gorgeous day. Was a lot of fun and even the tourist for friendly about letting you get to see up off the rails as well. The crew were very nice and great and I highly recommend to do this.

Pleasant cruise; no whales; rainy day.

As it was starting to rain, we did not have the visibility necessary to see lots of whales. The crew, however, was delightful, and we were issued "whale checks" when disembarking so we can plan another cruise for free at some future date.

What a fun day!!

What a wonderful way to end the weekend. My mom and I are from Fountain Valley and wanted to do something different on our Sunday. We have been whale watching before but only saw dolphins that day. After reading recent reviews of whale spottings, I decided to buy our tickets on Zerve! My mom has never seen whales in person before and she got to see 5 gray whales! We also saw tons of dolphins and sea lions. We had a blast seeing all of the animals and also hearing the children scream with delight each time a dolphin swam close to the boat. I would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to enjoy a nice warm "winter" day on the water.

Decent Run
Sun, Jan 25  10:00 AM Shell1510 Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
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
Sun, Jan 25  8:00 AM orcageary Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
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!

Incredible! Fantastic! Unforgettable!

I chose to go on the 8 hour tour because I am an avid whale watcher and have and going for 30 years.

I have always had pleasurable experiences on the four hour tours, but the 8 hour tour was absolutely incredible. Within 20 minutes we had already discovered a pod of grey whales. The whales were very active and everybody was able to get fantastic photographs. All in all we saw 45 gray whales, over 200 dolphin ( Bottlenose, Common Long Beak, and Rizzos...) We also saw a multitude of sea lions, posing harbor seals and a bald eagle when we got to Catalina...The captain was fantastic and the crew was wonderful! The food was yummy.

Truly, the boat is just a dream to be on!

best whale watch experience ever... trip of a lifetime!!!

Highly, highly, highly, highly, highly recommend!!!

I believe that you too will have the trip of a lifetime.

Very satisfied
Tue, Jan 20  2:00 PM Carmprice Female 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
My friend and I were pleased with this activity, especially at the Tuesday 1/2 price, which we thought was well worth it. The captain (?) gave a very informative talk through out the trip, so we learned a lot about whales. When we came upon a whale(s), the captain maneuvered the boat so as to help us better see the whale and other sea animals. The captain was respectful of the animals, not to disturb them too much with the boat.
