My husband and I purchased discounted tickets off travelzoo in Feb but were only allowed to make our reservation for April 12th @ 10 am on April 1st as their log book didn't extend that far out. As out of town guests traveling from Toronto they should think about a more efficient way to handle their reservations. It was not... More

I decided to include a little fishing during my stay in LA. This is the second time I have booked this boat and it will not be the last. I made a reservation the night before and I took an Uber to the dock without any problems. It was too rough for the bait boat to get out so we... More

The only reason I gave one star is because the first mate was a nice guy. First of all we purchased our tickets months in advance off of Zerve. Zerve checks availability and then you can purchase your tickets. I was coming from out of state and spending the night so I wanted to make sure that I had tickets... More

We reserved the whale watching trip and paid ahead. We parked at the Fisherman's village parking lot as it stated to do on our confirmation. When we got out we walked around for 15 minutes trying to find the place. There are absolutely no signs advising where to go. Finally about 5 minutes before the tour I called and told... More

My daughter lives in Santa Monica. I wanted to see the annual migration of the California grey whales, but I didn't want to drive very far to do it. Glad we found Marina del Rey Sportfishing. We literally took the 3 hour tour. We booked online, and it was fairly painless. I thought the price was very reasonable. Their directions... More

Took the half hour walk from my hotel to do some dock fishing which was advertised via Internet. Bought my CA fishing license on line before I left. When I got there the person working the shed said that they have no live bait. No problem, do you have any options? They do, frozen squid. Perfect. I'd like to do... More

I cannot speak more highly about this experience and the crew on the ship. Besides the one major downfall of my boyfriend having extreme seasickness the whole time (and basically sitting out the entire trip) everything ELSE went perfect. I went on a Tuesday morning and was lucky to ride on the New Del Mar. This is one of the... More

Great experience, completely worth the $45 we paid for 2 people (Groupon plus $5/person fuel charge) . Did the 3 hour whale watching trip on 12/28/14. Saw Humpback whales, large pods of dolphins and loads of other sea life. Professional crew, and would have been a great value at full price! The $4 beers and reasonably priced snacks were a... More
