It’s been a great experience! Toddy and Alan are two super host. Super professional, energetic and fun. They made this experience unforgettable. Few numbers: 9 Bears, plenty Eagles, See Lion, Seals, and Whales. By far over our expectation.

What a special trip! Our guides were knowledgeable, the lunch was delicious and the wildlife (humpback whale, black bear, sea otters, seals, eagles, etc) was gorgeous. Price is not cheap for the day trip but it is really well worth it.

I agree with the other answers. The boat is very comfortable. We had about 18-20 people. Everyone was spread around the boat. The main cabin area is totally enclosed with a sliding glass door. It has a couple of couches... More

Hello, We are now closed until early May. However there are other companies which stay open all year. They will run in November, weather permitting. You could try either Subtidal Adventures or Beachcomber Ocean Tours.
