Extremely disappointing. I wish I could give this company a zero. 4 hour tour and we did not see any Whales. Why are these "Whale tours" even allowed in June? What a major rip off. Your chances to see any Whales is less than 20...More

Based on reviews, I did not have high expectations for the trip. I was hoping for a fun boat ride and wildlife would be a bonus. We ended up with a ride of a lifetime... 10-12 whale sightings, a couple dozen Dolphins, jelly fish, porpoise,...More

Don't go if your group get sea sick, boat travelled very fast but since it is small so the ride will get choppy.

What an incredible ride on the jet powered catamaran! We visited 5 lighthouses. The professional and knowledgable guide was great, his sense of humor added spice and flavor. My BF loves lighthouses, we truly enjoyed the full narration and description of these legendary lighthouses and...More
