What a treat for most of us residing in the Midwest part of the country. If visiting the west coast, the opportunity to have a "boat ride" out to find the whales is an inexpensive very enjoyable event. Viewing the whale or whales feeding and diving is awesome!

Captain and crew were great - spent some extra time chasing down a Blue. got a few peeks and they gave us a free voucher for another trip because they felt we did not get a good enough view etc. Would highly recommend

The Crew is Very Knowledgeable & Friendly! Gr8 Boat. Clean despite being used for fishing unlike some outfits I've been on that have sticky rails etc. They Go the Extra Mile to make sure your Trip is Memorable! Worth the travel, time & $~ Love It! I GO ALL the TIME
