The tour was well organized and I found really good prices thanks to an offer on Groupon (you should check!) . After a while, we finally saw some whales but far... Very far!!! So nothing impressive but it is nature so we can't control it! The way to go back seemed to be pretty long and unfortunately, several people got... More

When you're searching for a needle in a haystack it's good to have an experienced captain as your guide. When I used this company we saw 1000+ dolphin (more than I've ever seen in my life - awesome!), sea otters and sea lions. And we followed 2 groups of gray whales. All that in a 3 hour tour I paid...

Whale watching was definitely on my bucket list and I cannot imagine a better experience. The staff had a great sense of humour and were very knowledgeable. I'm not the best with boats and the captain gave me a ginger caramel which completely settled my stomach. The only thing that would have made it better would be seeing an orca... More

We were with our Boy Scout Troop and had a great time. We all caught our limit and took great photos. Monty the deck hand was very helpful and cleaned our fish like a pro. We would recommend to everyone considering this trip to take the sea sickness pills the night before and day of. Many of the passengers with... More

This is another activity we booked on Groupon and it was worth it. The whale activity was not the greatest but we saw some whales. We saw large groups of Dolphins and Sea Otters which made the trip nice.

Absolutely loved this boat trip! Yes...the boat was small and seating was pretty limited but this meant you could get much closer to the action. The Captain and the deckhand were really knowledgable and you could tell they never got tired of spotting the whales! There was no bar onboard so remember to take your own drinks and snacks for...

This is a small boat whale watching tour 2nd to none. We saw over 40 whales at close range. I mean within 6 feet of the boat. If you want to see whales and porpoise up close pass the Big guys and go on the Sur Randy. To hear the blow holes and sonds of whales talking, being within 10... More

Our deckhand Tristan was awesome, we weren't sure what to expect, either we'd have a nice boat ride on a sunny day or get some fish, and we got some fish, limited ok fairly quickly, then kept fishing for the rest of the boat, our captain was great too, lots of fun!
