Went on the four hour whale watching tour but it was in the end of April and we saw zero whales. Water conditions were pretty rough and tour became not very enjoyable even though it is very beautiful in the bay. Pick a nice weather day to go for sure and if you want to see whales it should probably... More

Major Marine always does a good job with their tours. We had a great time, saw Grey Whales, which was the purpose. Also had a great encounter with Dall Porpoise. They surfed the bow wave for us. Magic!

Staff was great. We didn't care much for all the stopping and showing us all the Eagles and all the coves. I would have much rather gone straight out and seen the whales. Saw one whale tale.

Crew was experienced and knowledgeable on the grey whale watch, and took their time making sure all guests were satisfied. While we followed a typical route, with the accompanying narrative, adjustments were made to allow for more time watching certain active wildlife, thus it didn't feel like a canned tour. Suggest being prepared to get wet, and bring a sandwich... More

This was an amazing boat tour, well worth the money! Our tour guides were fun and spotted many animals quickly, including lots of orcas and even a few humpback whales.

I am an Alaskan and I had a lovely time playing tourist. Crew was wonderful - friendly and willing to talk and hep. Captain was knowledgable and considerate of wildlife - other company boat captains were not. The boat was a little threadbare but everything worked and that was the most important thing. Tour we just the right length -... More

The captain who narrated on the trip was phenomenal! He was so knowledgeable about the marine life, the military history from World War 2, and he was great at catching sight of porpoises, a fin whale, sea lions, and tons of eagles.
