It was a beautiful 70 degree October day for whale watching on the Atlantic Pearl. Take your camera and long lens .. and hold on while shooting! Water was very choppy and it was quite windy.. be prepared to be tossed around a bit! We had multiple amazing sightings of a humpbacks and dolphins.. but it’s not always guaranteed by Capt Lou. Take sunglasses snacks , drinks and extra jacket. Convenient parking directly in front of boat. Boat Intercom not always working to hear information. Great lunch at Imperial Diner! Great way to get away!

Had to lower my review from 5 stars to 2! The last two trips were.....problematic! First trip, usual service by crew members, while flawless in the past, was lacking. Second one was cancelled and not refunded, even though a refund was promised. I'll have to leave it at that. Really unfortunate, since I've always enjoyed my trips before!

Went whale-watching with Captain Lou's Fleet this past Sunday, Oct 18,2020 & had a great day out. The crew was able to spot several whales for us. We were lucky enough to see a humpback whale breach & "wave" to us. The crew was friendly and very capable in handling the boat. There was no narration which would have made the experience even more enjoyable. The boat ride itself was exhilirating. The ocean was choppy that day & I enjoyed the weave & roll, however, be forewarned & bring along some dramamine just in case! If you don't regularly find yourself on the water you may be surprised to find yourself a bit queasy as several fellow passengers were.

I was disappointed. I got to see whales but couldn't enjoy it because I was vomiting's uncontrollably. The crew didn't talk at all, there was no good navigation. The water was choppy and that's not the captains fault but there was a lot of stop and go. Everyone ended up vomiting the whole time, and with COVID - I am scared that I was exposed with everyone's vomit in the same area. The crew kept smoking and drinking. It was very unprofessional and I didn't feel safe with my family there. And still feel sick the day after.

My wife and I did the 2 hour sunset cruise. It was a nice and relaxing cruise. We did it in late September and the cruise started at 6:30pm and the sunset at that time of year was about 6:45, so we only had about 15 minutes of sunlight. We'll probably try it again earlier in the summer next year to get more sunset time. The DJ did a great job of mixing in both current and older music for all to enjoy. Definitely a worthwhile thing to do.
