Even though we didn't see any whales it was still a fantastic experience. You can feel the devotion and respect for the ocean and it's habitants in every single member of the team. I would always come back for another tour!

Heard great things about this company and wanted to check it out. Really enjoyed the small group size and boat-style, though it was more sporty than some of the other options. Line up early so you can get an outside seat. Saw a few whales,...More
