We were part of a six person tour, and were delighted with our guide and skipper. As we looked at the whales our guide answered questions and photographed the whale flukes to identify the individual whales we saw.

We saw a family of 3; parents and a young whale. We watched them and followed them for a long time and it was so fun to see and hear about them. The catamaran was nice and the food was great. The guides were informative and fun.

The tour guide and captain were great and very helpful and very concerned about making sure we all had a great experience. We saw a baby whale breach a few times which was cool and then saw a male breach twice in a row. It was amazing. They are very knowledgeable about the water and know where to go, and... More

While we got to see whales (and dolphins and sea turtles) we got much more. Our guide was very knowledgeable and shared while we waited to see if the whales would surface... More
