Decided last minutes to go on a 1hr whale watching trip. Their prices were very affordable. Our two young kids had a blast, and so did we! We got to see 3 whales. The captain was great, he seemed to know the area very well and could spot the whales quickly. The other staff was very friendly too. We would... More

We decided to take a Whale Watching tour with this company. I watched the weather closely and had to call a couple times for information. They didn't seem to know a lot about the weather and didn't really care to lose my business, as a matter of fact they actually told me to cancel and reschedule if I wanted to.... More

Great experience! We didn't see any whales our last trip, but have on other occasions. The crew was very nice and professional.

Did the whale watching trip with these guys. Had a great time! We saw whales! Very professional and safe operation. The prices were very reasonable and the vessel was well laid out and easy to move around on. I will be back for one of their offshore fishing trips very soon!

now, my experience of this particular charter is obviously going to be almost completely based on the whales that i saw so, it doesnt have too much to do with the particular captain or company. however, we were originally going to go out on one of the smaller boats, and i was immediately glad i didnt. for me, as someone...

Trip was great. Even though we did not see any whales it was fun and the crew was great. They even let us take our dog on-board. Thank you so much

Very nice staff. If you need help avoiding the many stairs down to the dock, they have an alternate parking area to get closer to the boat. The boat was immaculate and we did get to see whales even though it is past peak migrating season. They also do fishing tours.

We had booked one of the boats 3 months in advance for a private party. Once we arrived, I was told that the boat Captin thought the bar was to rough for the boat. So we were placed on one of the larger boats that happen to hold 15 people and only had 7 people already on it. I pointed... More

We took a big group (24) out on a tradewinds chart. Our boat was the morningstar and we had a great time. We followed a pair of whales for long period time as they surfaced many times and one of them even breached a total of 7 times. The captain clearly knew what he was doing and kept us well... More

I always wanted to see a whale so we booked this trip out on the ocean to find one. The winds wee blowing and the waves were really high. The boat rocked back and forth the whole trip. I got seasick to the point that I couldn't move. I did see the blow hole of a whale but that was... More
