We were a group of six , ages from 20 to 65, nationalities, Indian, Chinese, American and others. All of us had wonderful time. The owners were very honest, cautious and nice. They told us about the upcoming bad weather in the afternoon and asked us to book the ticket for next morning. The boat was clean, started on time. On board staff were knowledgeable and provided lots of information. They hung around and showed many Humpback whales and also a FIN WHALE and lots of Dolphins. The boat took three hours to show everything and were not in a rush to return.

I will recommend it to anyone. Two of us were known to get sea sick but had no problem on this boat.

The boats in their fleet communicated with one another to provide approximate locations of whales. It turned out great for us because the whales were interested in us and came up right along side the boat. They stayed there for several minutes and allowed us ample viewing opportunities. We were told that this is not common, so we were quite pleased to have such a rewarding opportunity. The marine biologist was very knowledgeable and informative.

Great ride - one humpback must have breached 20 times! What a show....and the huge sea lion on his back tearing up a large salmon for the birds was unexpected. Wish the permit allowed viewing from the upper deck.

More than expected

We thoroughly enjoyed the boat ride, the concern for passengers by the crew and the information that was given during the trip. When we finally came upon some whales, the crew spent as much time as we needed to view and take pictures of the whales. Would highly recommend Princess Whale Watching Cruises.

The office staff and the boat staff were very considerate. I had a cousin from out of state that required extra help and the entire group was excellent in every way to make the trip memorable. We were very pleased with the results and the whales we saw along with all of the other marine life. I would recommend this trip to everyone.

Perfect outing on the PrIncess on Sunday afternoon. Large number of humpbacks, friendly staff and an excellent naturalist on board to answer questions. We were so happy with our choice for whale watching. we actually had a parking problem- called the dock and they gave us great directions. We arrived right on time and have a fantastic trip.

My 84 year old mother has always wanted to go whale watching so for Mother's Day I set it up this year. We had a ball!!! Saw some humpbacks and dolphins which pleased us to no end. Needless to say, my mom's Mother's Day was made!!! We enjoyed the boat and staff and found them very informative!! Would do it again in a hot minute!
