2 hour whale watching tour
Fri, Jan 30  12:00 PM addisonbud Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
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.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! Saw whales,seals, sea lions, etc. but even more, just enjoyed a very relaxing 2 hour boat ride out on the Pacific! This is an event even a CA resident who has lived in SoCal for decades can do and enjoy! HIGHLY RECCOMMEND

The day was great. Fish were small but plentiful. Crew was great. They were patient with the kids and very polite. Boat was clean and food was great. Wish it was a whole day instead of a half day.

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

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
Thu, Jan 22  2:00 PM Parcival Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
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.

Crew was stellar and always ready when we needed help. We saw a whale, dolphins, sea lions. Fished at three spots...last stop was the best. Friendly guests...we ended up taking home 8 donated fish! Great time

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.

It was overcast and a bit cool, but not enough to detract from a great whale watching day. Captain and crew were very knowledgeable and helpful.

Meeting Our Big Water Neighbors
Tue, Jan 20  12:00 PM joannawb Female 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
The trip on the Dana Pride from Dana Wharf was two hours of excitement and pleasure. We saw a pod of four whales that we followed for a long time, watching them surface and showing us their backs and tails and sometimes a snout or two. At one point we had pods on both sides of the boat. Dolphins surfed in our wake, and the Captain was alert to do some rapid U-turns so we could watch them play. The Captain also displayed his love of his work, his environment, his knowledge of the animals that he passed along to his passengers. Many of the gray whale facts were very surprising, and reminded me of elephant characteristics that I do know something about. I didn't know that dolphins "see" things via echo-location, similar to sonogram operations in medicine.

Loved this whole trip in every way. What a great bargain, too!

You will see whales, and MORE!
Mon, Jan 19  12:00 PM Pfingst Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
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.
