Definitely buy directly from Ocean Riders - they will waive the commission fee they pay others to get you signed up. It is way more comfortable then other zodiacs which is very important when you are riding for 2+ hours. Overall, i would say i gave it 4 not 5 stars just because we only saw a few whales -... More

The ride on the boat out to see the whales was fast and exhilarating - definitely not for the faint of heart! We saw a small group of whales and the boat captain was very good at anticipating where they might go next so we saw them several times up close. At one point, a whale came up to the... More

The ride was exciting and so much fun. Being able to see the sealions in their natural habitat also amazing. But the feeling of seeing the humpback whales up so close was awesome! The guides were so nice and very well informed! Most recommended of all whale watchers!

This was the best! I'd recommend this for anyone who really wants to see whales. Our guides were very knowledgeable and respected the whales. Also, be sure to buy the cd of the photos they take. Not recommended for anyone who gets seasick

We did this just at the start of the season and did not know what to expect. We saw many whales and very close up! It was exhilarating!!! The zodiacs move fast and you can get very close to the whales. We also got to see Lovers Beach, Divorce beach, the Arch and Lands end. This tour is lots of... More

We did the La Isla three hour snorkeling & relaxing excursion in late April. Miguel was our guide & Gibran was our "papparazi" photographer & co-guide. The boat is pretty much a big floating bar & lounge. You are offered drinks as soon as you board, and have a relaxing trip through the harbor and out to dock close to... More
