Wonderful experience. I have done several tours with other companies and this was by far the best! I enjoyed the education provided by Bonnie and the team. We saw Orcas and a humpback. Will definitely go again and recommend only Mystic Seas!

We loved getting to see Orcas up close (as close as is safe and allowed) and in person. The whales were beautiful and simply took your breath away. However, I wish we could have known more about which specific whales we were looking at.
