One of THE best experiences of my life! It was so amazing to see the whales and I never imagined how close we would be able to get to them. The guides on this boat definitely know what they are doing. I cannot say enough good things about this experience.

We did the afternoon trip. Had to wait about 45 minutes for the boat to return from the morning excursion. There is a restaurant and public restrooms right there next to where you wait and a few little touristy shops. Such a cute area. The boat has restrooms in the back and also a small snack area (chips, soda, water).... More

We boarded and were viewing whales in the wild within 45 minutes. The staff was very knowledgeable and spotted the whales and gave their locations. Very nice trip.

A professional company. We booked on the day, it being a quieter time of year, so had the advantage of picking a nice day. We went with the view the only guarantee was a boat ride, as these are wild animals. Took a tip of taking a book in case it was a long trip with nothing to see. But... More

Great whale watching experience. The crew was very professional. Explained what we were seeing and what the whales were doing. Saw 6 whales and they did deep dives and breeching. Wonderful "show" by the whales!

Five Humpbacks frollicing (literally), a couple Minkes and one large Fin whale earned the price of admission. First class treatment by crew and narrator during trip. My son (8) and I thoroughly enjoyed the excursion. 130pm Saturday sail. I had done this trip three years before and this time was even better. Small snack bar with soft and adult drinks.... More
