Breathtakingly wonderful!!!!

Just going out on the water was great however the crew were wonderful and entertaining which made it even better. The weather became a little blustery but our guide and narrator was so entertaining that we didn't care. We were unable to see a whale on our trip but we found a feeding frenzy of "simple dolphins". There were probably thirty of them swimming with out boat and darting in an out of the water eating on the Krill that was present. It was an awesome reminder of this beautiful planet we live on. When I came back to land I am determined to make this a bi-weekly or at least monthly experience. To wonderful not to enjoy.

We saw a gray whale as predicted. The highlight, however, was where we found the school of sardines being fed on by about 4 kinds of sea birds, sea lions, and dolphins, all in a broiling frenzy with sardine scales floating on the water. Lots of great close-up pictures! Beautiful day with fairly calm seas.

Great "Winter" Experience

Having left Walden Colorado (you'll have to look it up on a map since people born and raised in the state don't even know where it is) at MINUS 20 degrees, we wanted an ocean-going trip to see whales during the Christmas break. We were not disappointed - the knowledgeable captain and crew were friendly and smiling during most of the trip - they needed to get "serious" for the landing and preparation which is a plus. The ship was clean and well organized and we made friends with several couples from around the world. We had a beautiful day on the ocean and came back with suntans - in January!

The trip was awesome. No whales but lots of marine life including the albino dolphin.

That alone was worth the price. Very relaxing boat ride. Would recommend to anyone.

Although we had been out previously, this time we actually saw a WHALE. The boat's captain was able to keep the whale at about 50 yards to our port side and about 25 yards in front of the boat. we followed the whale for about 20 minutes and saw the tail multible times.

My husband and I took our daughter and 2 year old grandson for his first boat ride and he loved it! The Captain showed us lots of dolphins up close and it was fun to watch them and the pelicans skimming along the water right beside the boat. We thought it might be to long a trip for our grandson (2hrs.) but were pleasantly surprised that he loved every minute of it.

We did not see any whales this particular day but had a lot of fun anyway. The coastline that we traveled is just beautiful and the Captain was kind enough to give us free passes for another trip since we did not see any whales.

I can't wait to take my 8 year old grandson as I am sure he will love it as well.

We all had a great time! Very professionally run.

When I decided to go whale watching on Dec. 29 with my daughter, son-in-law and grandsons (ages 6 & 2), it was not with the anticipation of seeing whales as very few had, at that time, been sited this far south. The appeal of the trip was being outside, doing something different as a family and perhaps seeing some wildlife. The captain and crew did everything possible to make the day amusing, informative and memorable. We spent a lot of time with a pod of dolphins which was a lot of fun for adults and kids alike. Whales or no, we all enjoyed the outing immensely and will definitely go out again later in the season in hopes of seeing whales. (But if we don't see any next trip, I know that we will still have a great time!)

Fun time on Dana Wharf whale watch
Mon, Dec 21, 09   12:00 PM RuthAnnS Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We were hoping to see grey whales but were just a little too early yet. Did see a blue, several sharks, several playful sea lions, and lots of dolphins that played around the boat and rode the bow. The captain's information as we went along was very interesting. We all had a great time and would do it again.

If only the whales had cooperated.
Sun, Dec 20, 09   12:00 PM susan25 Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The boat trip alone is great, but it would have helped if the whales had cooperated and been present. We did see some California sea lions and the discussion about them and how they are different from seals was informative. We didn't see any other marine life except for sea birds until the very end when the boat ran thru some bait fish being chased by some dolphins. There was a potential sighting of a whale, but it was already too far behind us as we entered the harbor and we couldn't take the time to verify what it was. The captain made sure that we had the opportunity to go out again free of charge, which he really didn't have to do.

One great afternoon on the ocean.

Working with the people of Zerve was a pleasant experience. They patiently answered all my questions. When rain threatened our day to go out whale watching, they patiently helped out by moving our date from a Saturday to a Monday. When our party increased from two to four persons, there was no problem getting the extra tickets. I appreciated the attached map and instructions to get to the Dana Point wharf.

Thank you all. We had a great time. I recommend this activity for everyone, all ages, all backgrounds.

Staff was well informed and interesting. We knew it was early in the season for the grey whales and we did get to see 4 varieties of dolphins.

Very nice experience.

Nice trip

The boat captain was professional, courteous, knowledgable, and dedicated. We did find a whale to look at and that was exciting for someone who has never seen one before. The boat ride alone was a great way to pass the time. So even if we hadn't found a whale, the ride was nice. The price was not out of line. My wife and my son had a good time too. My wife did have one complaint. According to the trip description, brownies were supposed to have been handed out but we didn't get any.
