Nate and Trey were the best! Our second time cruising with this operator--last year was on a public tour which was lots of fun. This time a private family outing at cocktail hour. Weather was sublime and Trey always teaches us some new things about the wildlife that surrounds us. Loved their new boat, the Pellagic II--smooth and steady.

Nate was our captain and Trey was our naturalist. The boat was in great shape and they skillfully navigated us to eagles, seals, and 8 orcas. We departed from the Rosario location. Highly recommend!

You never know what you'll get on a whale watching trip. Few Orcas this trip, but we got an incredible show from humpbacks. One of my best trips. Staff was super friendly. Would highly recommend

Amazing experience. Trey and Bill were very engaging and we learned so much from them! This is a must-do if you're in the area. We will definitely do this again!
