I went whale watching with my 11 and 8 year old sons. We saw 3 varieties of whales! Exciting boat ride. Beautiful scenery. Attention to safety too. It was an all around excellent experience!

Captain Greg went above and beyond to find us over 30 whales to watch! We spotted 3 different species of whales, an abundance of harbour porpoises, grey and harbour seals and Puffins! The experience was unforgettable! Just amazing!
