We had so much fun! The tour guides were engaging and knowledgeable and did their best to make sure we got the most of the tour. And they succeeded! We saw a group of about 4 or 5 whales less than ten minutes out!

Perfect Captian and naturalist. Loved this afternoon whale watching experience with THIS crew, as both were so professional and respectful with common sense to not have the sun light washout videos and pictures, aka circled around whales to avoid backlight. Great information, and made the experience about the customers, not themselves and their own convenience, aka did not brag on past outings nor what they experience daily. 5 stars!!!

Best money spent ever. Saw so many whales it was amazing! Saw a mom with a fairly new calf that she kept bringing it to the top of the water with her fin so it could breath. Our captain and mate were so knowledgeable. Would go on this tour everyday.

Being on a smaller boat is like having front row seats at a basketball game. It is a completely different experience to be up close with these incredible creatures. Nick and Lacey were awesome guides and it was obvious that they love what they do and still get excited about watching and interacting with the whales.

Outstanding operation, Captain took us to where the whales were active. The small boat makes it easier to see and gets you to the action faster. Crew was very knowledgeable and made the experience very interesting. Hope to do this again in the future.

Whales Everywhere! Amazing!

It was absolutely incredible! There were whales everywhere! They came so close to the boat and even swam under our boat to “check us out!” Emma was the perfect guide, funny and so knowledgeable about whales and the behaviors we were seeing. The smaller boat and smaller company size meant all seats on the boat were great. Highly recommend this company!

This was the most amazing trip of our week there. Everyone agreed that this trip was the highlight. Emma and Hanna were amazing operators, and provided us with excellent guidance, information and safety. We saw so many whales with babies, that we were overwhelmed. It was also fun to see even the operators excited about all that we got to see. They were excellent at taking us to the whales--we saw so many breaching--over and over. I'll never forget this trip!
