Enthusiastic crew and captain, made dolphiin-watching a learning adventure, and searched/found some blue whales just before heading home.

Our whole group (6, from 8 to 70) enjoyed the entire time on board. It was fun.

Thank you.

Good value for the price. Crew was friendly and informative. There was plenty of room to move around and was not too crowded.

It was great. We saw 2 blue whales and an elephant seal that was trying to swallow a small shark. It was quite a site.

The crew was efficient, and we saw tons (literally) of whales. It was a great day.

The crew was pleasant and friendly. The boat was freshly cleaned as it had been on a sport fishing trip prior. The snacks offered where adequate. We saw lots of dolphin but no whales. they did give us a 50% off our next trip.
