We watched a mother whale giving breaching lessons to her calf. So fun Staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Because of COVID restrictions boat was not crowded. Might of been able to find a cheaper options but I like that some of the profits supports their non profit whale research

This was a great experience. The crew and captain were very attentive, bringing drinks, sanitizing and sharing their knowledge. Within 10 minutes of leaving the dock we started seeing whales. There were several groupings with babies and males showing off for the females. We saw breaching, tail slaps and even a pectoral wave. All in all a great trip. We highly recommend this trip.
