Trip was wonderful. Staff...
, Apr 2022
Trip was wonderful. Staff fun and courteous. Did not see whales or dolphins but it was late in the season and we really didn’t expect to see many if any. We just enjoyed being out on the water
Worth a try to see amazing whales
, Mar 2022
The crew was very nice and helpful. Great views from the boat. The only disappointment was the briefest of whale sitings and the distance which understandably can't be controlled. It was encouraging that they offer 20% off another trip. We will book again. I have no pictures.
Was great for us and 3 yr old

Great experience. Knowledgeable crew. Heard whales singing and even had one pass under the boat. Just the right length of time for 3 yr old too!

My wife and I thought we would see the whales more closely, to be able to take better photos. The only photographs and videos that we were able to take were of part of the body, there on the tour they told us that they could not get close because if they did they would receive a fine. That should be explained when they offer the tour. the staff very amagke and knowledgeable about the whales.

This was an AMAZING experience! Beautiful! And tons of humpback whales putting on a show for us! FANTASTIC!!
Worth the money for the experience

Really enjoyed the morning out on the water. The guides were knowledgeable about whales. We saw dozens of tails and spouts from afar. You never know how close the animals will let you get. We did enjoy a pod of dolphins jumping and swimming alongside our boat!
A must see
, Jan 2022
Both ladies were very knowledgeable. It was really amazing to see the whales so up close. . The boat was comfortable, only issue is no bathroom. We had to drive an hour to get to this excursion, then had to find a bathroom . So we left a few minutes late.
