Absolutely Awesome, we saw at least 8 pods and took several great pictures of the whales and their tails. What an experience, thank you to all the staff.

Beautiful day, crew on boat was great, we saw whales many times. Definitely recommend(& saving with Goldstar was the icing on the cake) Be sure to bring a jacket and sunscreen.

Better than I even imagined. There were more whales out there than there are at the fat ladies' store at the local mall.

Captain very knowledgeable and respectful of the animals. Marine mammal protection act requires a minimum distance of 100 yards, so you're camera needs a zoom.

Everything was as good as presented and expected. Lots of whales!
Full boat though. Bring warm clothes and some food as the concession is basic and may get really busy.

Great day on the Hornblower. Had a great time, saw two groups of whales. The crew was professional and our tour was the first to locate whales. A very nice day with family.
