They do a great job. The boat is clean and comfortable and they provide a lot of information about the whales. Its a great time. We got lucky and saw dozens of whales.

We leaned so much, saw so many whales, several species. It was INCREDIBLE! We have a week here. I'm not sure we will be able to top seeing these majestic animals! Find the online coupon to save a little bit. And be prepared to pay for parking...$15. Great experience!

This is a fantastic daytime activity. The guide is expert and personable, and seeing the whales is unforgettable and different every time. Do bring a sweatshirt or jacket, sun hat, and sunglasses. Excellent!

We had a riot! What a great day. Professionally managed and run. Saw a million (it seemed) of whales at close range. Nice to have some eats on board for the kids too. BTW - the boat can haul! Holy! Thank you! Very highly recommend!

This was a last minute decision for my wife and I as we traveled. It was a great decision! Of course I am biased by the fact that we had a great day and there were whales. The staff was very knowledgeable. The information was not just about the whales but about the surrounding seas and ocean environment. They are... More

They say that they guarantee that you will see whales, we figured that we might see a few but we were lucky enough to see about 16 different ones, they each have names so the naturalist was able tell them apart. Many of the whales also had their calves with them, which are not named at this stage of their... More

I would have given them 5 stars because we saw so many humpback and finback whales and dolphins. Even some baby dolphins! It was the best! The only thing that bothered me was we paid about $100 and parking wasn't included. They charge you another $15 to park when you get there, which isn't horrible, but they double park everyone....

We went out on the afternoon cruise, the weather was perfect. As soon as we reached our destination whales seemed to be all over and even had number of breaches. Contrary to what they might tell you the best viewing is on top with the captain and marine biologist.
