We took this trip last minute without any prior booking and were so glad that we did. The boat crew was fantastic and we had a great time seeing whales "live" for the first time in our lives. Will definitely recommend it.

I was a bit skeptical after the $$ spent for 5 of us to go; but we all thoroughly enjoyed the trip. We not only saw a whale; we saw many, many whales. We got some great pictures and video. It was truly amazing!!!
