This is our second whale watching cruise with this line. Staff is courteous and informative. We saw humpbacks up close as well as dolphins that chased the boat's wake for a while. A wonderful and fun experience I highly recommend.

The enter experience was great! I was a "zombie" and booked the wrong day, Zerve fixed it for me. Be just at Princess Whale Watch and his staff were all amazing. The boat is clean, safe, not over crowded! I will be going back in another season to see some different types of whales. We we are to see a mother and her calf, dolls porpoises, sea lions, sea otters, a sunfish, and more. The biologist narrator was very informative.

Great Opportunity To See Whales and Other Wildlife

Sailed on the 5:00PM tour. Saw humpback whales, dolphins, porpoises, sea otters, and several different types of water fowl. Thinking back, there were so many whale sightings that I lost count! The wildlife narrator did an excellent job and it was very apparent that she loved her job. The other workers were also very enthusiastic. The only negative memory I have is that the PA system did not always function properly. We paid the extra fee to use the upper deck and ended up staying up there the entire time. If the sun was too hot or the wind too strong, there was a covered protected area that we used from time to time during the higher speed intervals. Great adventure and would encourage all to splurge and take the tour.

First time out in the open ocean. Got to see 3 huge humpback whales, sea lions, and dolphins. Definitely recommend if you have never done this before to give it a try. You won't be disappointed! Cheers

Chased Orca's for 2 hours, even though Grey Whale signs where within sight.

Not happy.

I wish that we could have seen different kinds of whales but the ones that we did see were amazing! I understand that you can't make wheels appear that aren't there, so we had a great time with our grandkids and would do it again!

We cannot see as many whales we expected. Only one a couple of times. However, this don't really depends on the crew, it's something natural. We saw a lot of otters and sea lions.
