A nice, fun day out on the water. Not too many fish, decent sized ones anyway, were being caught by anyone. Thats how fishing goes sometimes. I would surely go again

My daughter and I did this excursion for my birthday while we were in California. We did not see any whales, but saw lots of dolphins! The boat was clean, the employees knowledgeable and overall it was a great time!

This was Whale (well) worth seeing!

Although my husband and I didn't have the opportunity to see whales or dolphins we truly enjoyed the trip and besides that we were very happy to hear that we would get a second chance to see the dolphins or whales at another time if we didn't see them on our trip. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and all the staff was very friendly on board. So if you're looking for an excursion in Dana Point I would highly recommend This one. We have a ton of fun and enjoy the beautiful scenery on the ocean.

Family fun and great times.

I was recommended this trip off of Dana Point with Dana Wharf's Fishing expeditions from some Colleague Officers I work with. The booking of the trip was easy and those assisting me were helpful, professional, and great.

The locations the captain chose, could have been better for those with deep sea reels though. I think I was the only one to catch a bottom floor fish. Those with other type of reels were able to cast-out their bate (throw it outward) and catch shallow fish more frequently. However, over all the experience was fantastic, the boat crew were very helpful and fully alert of activities on the boat to make all have a great experience. I caught the last and only fish prior to going back in. My fish was also the biggest fish that day on the boat, a Sand Bass, but i didn't get in the pool of money. Nevertheless, I recommend booking your trip with Zerver.com and I can't wait to do this again with Dana Wharf fishing trips.

Thanks for the great time!

Excellent, Crew and Boat

Couldn't ask for better crew for a short, twilight trip out on the kelp beds. They worked hard to help you fish, find fish and keep everyone happy. Can't beat it for the price!

Wonderful Experience

We (my husband and I, our four children and my parents) had a wonderful time on this 2-hour tour. None of us had ever been on a boat in the middle of the ocean and it was a great first experience. We didn't get to see any whales but we saw a lot of dolphins and a spectacular view of the sunset.

Whale and Dolphin Watching
Sun, Sep 13  5:00 PM cstogdill Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Definitely recommend this trip. The boats are very clean and the crew very friendly. Unfortunately, we did not find any whales on our early evening trip, although we saw a small pod of dolphin and there was a cute sea lion in the harbor. Due to the lack of a sighting, our tickets were returned to us and we were advised that the ticket is good for another trip, any time. I definitely plan to return. Good value, even if we didn't see much.

Great Experience
Sun, Sep 6  5:00 PM Seharter Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I would recommend this to anyone that wants to get off the beach and really experience the beauty of the ocean. You are just far enough off the coast that you can enjoy the ocean and the Captain does an amazing job teaching you about the history of the whales in the area, pointing out things to look at, and spotting the marine life. We got the see a whale surface and dive about four times before moving on to a HUGE pod of dolphins. They were following the boat and jumping in the wake, it was amazing!
