We had SUCH a great time with Captain Harry and Wes, our skipper. Despite gloomy weather (I guess not so unusual), we had a fantastic experience with whale watching, thanks to their experience and knowledge. There's a bit of luck to being where the whales are, but experience goes a long way to knowing where you're most likely to find... More

We took this tour recently on our cruise and were extremely satisfied with the one-on-one service we got from the Captain and the single crew member. The catamaran used was fairly stable in the water and as a party of 10 members having the boat to ourselves made all the difference. The captain being an outdoorsman himself, explained the migratory... More

Tired of a crowded boat with scripted narration? Try Weather Permitting. You will get infinite knowledge from an experienced naturalist who lives in the area. The boat is intimate so it is easy to hear and see what is going on. Experienced whale watchers know that whales are not there at our bidding so do not always cooperate. We were... More

We had a blast and saw several Humback whales breaching time and time again. The boat was small and we all were able to see very well. Knowledgeable and fun captain and naturalist. Highly recommended!

Capt. Harry was very accommodating, knowledgeable, and created a memorable life event for my wife and me. The experience to get close and see the humpback whales bubble feeding far exceeded our expectation. Capt. Harry's vessel was ideal for getting close and quickly navigating to where the whale pods are moving. Below is a link to Humpback whale photos taken... More

We were on the same Whale Watching Tour as Sherriln (review right before mine) who provided a great review of our tour. Please take a look at her review as we share the same sentiment, but I'm going to add a bit more of my own :) Captain Harry and Wes both have a passion for whale watching and nature.... More

We just finished our whale watch with Captains Harry and Wes less than an hour ago. Within fifteen minutes of leaving the dock, we witnessed four humpback whales bubble net feeding. One of the whales was a calf who was being instructed by her mother and the two other whales in the feeding pod. We had over two hours of... More

We had an amazing time on the boat with Capt. Harry! Lucky for us, my husband and I, there was supposed to be another group of people on the boat with us, but they were sick and had to skip the trip (sorry guys!) So we had the trip to ourselves! We were able to see a mama humpback with... More

Took advantage of a local discount, and went whale-watching with Weather Permitting on a sunny August day. And, what a day it was! Almost immediately encountered a group of 15+ bubble-net feeding humpback whales. Massive heads would erupt from the water every 6-7 minutes, with thrashing 20' long pectoral fins. One central female was absolutely huge! One bubble-net emerged from... More
