“Wonderful Experience!!!!!!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

This was our 3rd time going on the Gemini Whale Watch and we were not disappointed. The crew is excellent and experienced. Doesn't seem like a job to them. Linda is great!!!! She made sure everyone was having a good time and took the time to visit. Never an issue with a good seat. They don't overcrowd people.
We saw amazing whales. They were so close you could almost reach out and touch them. We went on vacation this year with another couple and they were extremely excited to see so many whales within the 2 hour trip. We always go on the afternoon watch. Love the appetizers and the included cocktails!!!
An experience you don't want to miss. Of course, you never know how many whales you will see but we sure lucked out and saw many.

“Whales, whales, everywhere!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

What an experience! We had drinks and snacks on board, but , the best part was Dave who talked about the whales during the trip and told us what to look for in the water. We got more than I ever expected because of the lucky time of year we visited. We had a mom and baby swim along side the boat for quite a time and got to see three whales breach the water. I lost count of how many whales we actually saw in the water! Unforgettable!

“Best time and whale watching experience”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

We took the Gemini whale watching sunset cruise. I have never seen so many whales and so close up. We did a whale watching cruise in Alaska but had to move from side to side on the boat and barely got a glimpse of the tails. This cruise was on a large catamaran and not a bad seat or view on it. The food was delicious and the drinks were plentiful. The staff was knowledgeable of the whales, the location, and the boat. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing whales up close and personal.

“Very enjoyable afternoon”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

We booked this trip as a snorkel trip as my daughter and her husband wanted to snorkel, as it turned out only my daughter and my wife went into the water, to cold for me, and her husband. I guess we are a couple of sissies . That being said we had a great time eating some great food and local beer. The whale watching was better then a whale trip we took last year on a whale watch boat. All in all a great trip,and the bikinis were not bad either (- :

“Great whale watch”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

We went on the afternoon watch at 4 PM. We could not have had a more perfect afternoon. The wind finally died down after 2 weeks. We saw a lot of pods; mothers and calves and male escorts. The captain knows just where to go to see the most whales.
The"Pupus" we're more like dinner with chips and salsa, veggies, BBQ chicken and wraps from the Westin.
The crew is friendly and knowlegable. Park at Whaler's Village and then stop by Hulas for a drink and get your parking validated, then no charge. Or park in the beach parking between the Village and the Westin, it is free if you can get a space.
