    Let's do it again! So professional and so caring even in these uncertain times.
    Loved all the information that the staff gave on the Whales.
    They really made sure that even with social distancing everyone knew what was happening at all time and where to look etc. .
    Saw lots of Grey Whales will have to go again and hope for Orcas .

    Whales and more...! Great afternoon, seeing a family of 5 Orca whales followed some humpback's.. Also saw a colony of seals and sealions on the way back. The crew (Chris and Bill on the 'bridge' and Valerie, Launa and Seana as ecological guides) enhanced the sightings with knowledgable commentary. A great way to see amazing wildlife in its natural surroundings!

    Amazing orcas, even saw a baby orca!! The tour guides were very knowledgeable and I learned a lot about whales. We saw a mama and baby (calf) breach and it was spectacular! We also saw a couple of males. The weather was gorgeous (May 2019) and we had a blast. I would 100% recommend this trip to anyone. The length was perfect - a half day was plenty.

    Amazing experience My husband and I went on the trip beginning of September. We were out for just half an hour when we saw two humpback whales. We sat for an hour watching and were so close to them, it was just amazing! Definitely recommend. Also it was a hot day but it gets quite cold when the boat is going fast so definitely wrap up. They do have blankets on board for anyone who needs one. Our guide was Craig and he was very helpful and interesting in everything he told us.

    Wonderful Whale watching experience Spectacular trip ... and we got to see an Orca pod.
    This is a beautiful part of the world and to see whales in their natural setting is a delight.

    The large boat is comfortable and well equipped. It is cold on the water and the extra warmth and hat, gloves and blankets made for a pleasant experience.

    Lili, Rory, Captain Chris and Bill were fabulous. Lili and Rory are naturalists and gave excellent commentary about the whales.

    Strongly recommend a whale watching experience with this group.

    Great!!! Worth every penny!! Got to see some killer whales. Even if we didn't get to see them it was an enjoyable ride. I loved the crew on board. They were very educated and knowledge when it came to the wildlife and you can tell they love what they do. Esp. Lili. ;) she pulled her bird book out and showed my husband and I a few of the birds that were on the water. I also liked the speech about the whales, chemicals and environment I really think it's important that people know.
