We had barely left the harbour when the guide told us his girlfriend had seen some whales from the shore. From the bow, we could soon spot them, and it took less than 2 minutes to determine they were orcas. I kid you not: orcas....More

Went out with this independent, family run company. Really friendly, Captain and Guide were both superb. Saw Seals as hoped and learnt alot of the area, culture and wildlife. Highly recommended!
