Awesome experience! We really loved it, it was a beautiful evening, Pat was really great and shared a lot of information with us. The whale breached many times and we were feeling very lucky!

Over all it was fun. We were not there at the best time of year to see whales however captain Pat did his best and kept us out extra long to see a small minke whale. There were many seals and porpoises around but you had to be paying attention.

Today was probably the 5th time I've gone on a zodiac tour here in the past two years, and the second that I've done this past week. It's always a great time and exciting. The first one this week we unfortunately didn't see any whales but saw a ton of porpoises and seals and other wildlife. The second trip however,... More

Our guide organised the seating so that the children sat up on the prow, what a great time they had. Saw seals, porpoises and WOW! The first minke whale of the season. A... More

Arranging a slot online was a breeze as was check in at their facility. Friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable, the staff efficiently suited up our 10 AM bunch of 12 adventurers and moved our group into the Zodiac which comfortably seated each person. As one experienced whale watching tourist onboard commented, "Spotting whales is a crap shot" which apparently our guide... More
