Our trip was perfect. We saw whales, the crew was very friendly, and the captain had alot of interesting information. When I was trying to decide which cruise to take, I almost chose a longer (6 hr.) trip, but I found that this amount of time ( about 3 hrs) was perfect.

The captain and biologist guide were friendly, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. Scenery was beautiful, boat was spacious and comfortable with excellent views of whales, otters and other sea life. We had a wonderful experience. Would recommend paying a little extra for the upper deck -- it was well worth it!

This should be on you bucket list

This is truly an amazing experience. Once in a lifetime!! Seeing the whales up close is out of this world, let alone the other dolphins and jelly fish you get to see. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with a weak stomach. The extra $20 for the top deck is well worth it. Loved this and we recommend it to everyone with a good stomach

Very honest and highly recommended

The staff were all very helpful. The information was clear and interesting. A very honest approach and no false promises. In fact the results were much better than anticipated. Some other companies were advertising sightings that were obviously not true on the day we went. Very satisfied with the experience and we hope to return to the same compnay again.

I had a great time in this trip. We saw a few humpback whales breaching out of the water and lots of tail waves. I wish the whales were a bit closer but understand that the boat can't drive up the the whales. The crew was knowledgable and I learned some interesting facts about the coast.

Fantastic Trip

This was my families first time whale watching. We had a wonderful time. Within an hour we were surrounded by 5 humpback whales. Two of the whales swam right next to the boat and splashed my husband. We saw lots of sea lions, jelly fish, some other fish native to the area. The workers on the boat were friendly and informative about the area. The boat was very clean and not crowded. It was easy to move around compared to other boats we saw that day. Well worth the money!
