This was an awesome experience. Friendly staff and a biology teacher narating the tour. They guaranteed we would see whales, and we did. Not one or two, but 20 or 30. It seemed like they were everywhere and were showing off for our passengers. If you go, bring warm clothes as you may need them once at sea. Also, sodas... More

Catching whales in their natural habitat is difficult as we had to travel 28 miles out which was a VERY long trip and not much to see or hear about on the way. Seeing the whales was a highlight but being able to actual see them is a trick as everyone rushes to get to the edge and side they... More

We were on the first tour of the season and didn't quite know what to expect. We had a fantastic time! We saw dozens of whales, hundreds of dolphins, and plenty of other wildlife. The customer service was superb! Every person from 7 seas was friendly, personable, and passionate - I can't say enough.

This is a must do. The people are fantastic and they knew where to go to see the most whales! We saw 18 whales- 3 different species- and one species of dolphins and they were right up to our boat and some would go under the boat!!. It was a cold tour and a bit choppy ( we took 1... More

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

Hi llyngirl, Thank you for writing a review of your trip with us. 30 miles is certainly a long way to go to find whales, and from your description it sounds like all area whale watch boats were gathered in the same spot. That does happen sometimes. What we always tell our passengers is that we will go wherever we... 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
