Great trip to see the Whales. Disappointed we did not move in closer. Other boats did.

Our guide on the trip was really knowledgeable and super enthusiastic, we saw plenty of humpbacks on our trip and it was amazing. My wife got quite cold but one of the crew lent her a windproof jacket which was really appreciated. Definitely bring some warm clothing no matter how hot it is on the shore!

A worthwhile experience. Boat was clean and staff attentive. On board guide was informative. Saw numerous whales and dolphins and trip length was just right. No matter the temperature in the harbor, bring a sweatshirt and long pants.

We had low expectations of seeing any whales or dolphins going into the ride. Once we were out about 20 minutes, we saw some humpback whales and the activity picked up from there! Soon, sea lions were swimming out to where the whales were to all feed on whatever was delicious in the area. It was amazing how many whales there were...over 30! And the sea lions were so cute - some more playful and sunbathing on their backs, waving as they went by our boat (we obviously had to stop due to how close the animals were coming to us.) It was a great experience, great views, and I'd do it again next time I'm in the area.

Wow! This was my first trip out to sea. My husband has worked on a fishing vessel before, so he knew what to expect, I didn't. Loved it, every minute of it!!! :O) Thanks Jeff for the PERSONAL touch and remembering our names: Mike and Lauri from Camp Verde. You were all great, and it was so worth it. Our entire vacation was so very memorable.......... thanks again Captain Duke for your incredible skills at the wheel.

Was a good trip. Saw whales and had a good boat ride. Speaker system on boat was hard to hear. Might mount one forward, near bow if possible.

We had a brilliant time. The staff were extremely accommodating when we were late for our booking and put us on the next boat with no extra charge. We saw loads of humpbacks and it was worth every cent!
