We saw many whales and had a blast. They came so close to our boat several times. The tour tried really hard to make sure we got to see as many whales as possible. I would love to go again.

We had a great experience without interfering with the wildlife. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Just a word of caution about parking. Ensure you're aware of the parking rules otherwise it can be very expensive to exit.

This was a great experience. The boat was configured so that you could see to both sides, and we were as close to these huge animals as allowed. We missed nothing, and were able to take some outrageous pictures of breaching whales. There was even a calf frolicking among the adults. We had a great time, and we will do... More
