“Excellent tour.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We decided to go on the Ocean Friendly tour after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and we are glad we did. We had a wonderful day with our guide Keith and the crew, Jorje and Lucio. We saw a number of whales and dolphins and learned a lot about them. Our hosts were both informative and friendly. We will likely go on the tour again next year.

“Beautiful Creatures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

This adventure began with an on shore briefing by Keith, our guide. This briefing which was informative, entertaining, and safety minded set the tone for the excellent adventure that was about to take place. We were fortunate to have along with Keith a fabulous crew! We saw and learned about these lovely whales. We listened to them singing underwater using the hydrophone. Lunch was included. This tour is well worth it. I highly recommend Ocean Friendly tours.

“Whale Watching with Oscar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

I recently took my 2 daughters (ages 11 and 15) on Oscar's whale watching tour. It was amazing. Almost surreal. One whale recognized Oscar and swam closer towards the boat to check it out! We also got the listen to the whales singing underwater with Oscar's microphone and speaker. It was so wonderful. I would definately recommend this tour and would go on it again myself!

“Second time, knowledgeable guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Went with Oscar Frey several years ago and had a terrific time and saw many many whale up close and personal. This time the boat is larger and the Oscar's co-worker Keither was the guide, but was equally knowledgeable. We saw fewer whale who were not in the breaching mood, but this is wild life; they do what they want! But we had a fine day and a good deal. Highly recommended.
