    It has been a great trip and we saw a lot of whales. A special thanks you to Scott Turton, a very friendly and nice guy who has send me some pictures as he had a better camera than I had on the boat. The crew is very friendly and we learned a lot about the life of the whales.

    Had a really nice time trying to spot whales. We saw humpbacks but because it wasn’t the best, they said I can get another visit for free anytime in my lifetime as long as the company is still around which is great. I thought the staff were brilliant. I always get motion

    Hello Shuheb, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us! We are glad you got to see some humpbacks, but sad that the viewing opportunities were in short supply. Come back anytime to take advantage of your 'Whale Sighting Guarantee', and hopefully we can find you some good whale action :) A special thank you for your kind words about our crew, I will be sure to pass them along! We hope to see you again!

    First impressions were not good. We had booked for the earlier tour and we were told the previous evening that it had been cancelled when we called in to check. We were amalgamated with the afternoon trip and the boat was really quite full making it difficult to move around. It

    Hello ilovetouring, Thank you very much for taking the time to review your experience with us! We appreciate your feedback, I apologize that the beginning did not go smoothly. As it gets later in the season tourism starts to trickle out, so we often have to combine tours. We are glad you got to encounter humpbacks, sea lions and Dall's porpoise! The thing about adventure tourism is that you never know what you are going to encounter - it's just the nature (pun intended) of the business! We hope to see you again in the future, and hopefully next time we can get you out on a zodiac :)

    On October 3 2019 our whale whatching event offered us a variety of humpback whales, sea lions and a few bold eagles; although sometimes hard to capture on photo it was stunning. Especially when a young humpback whale jumped out of the water exactly in front of the vessel. Not

    Whale Hello P3085ZKericv, Thank you very much for taking the time to review your experience with us! We are so happy that you got the opportunity to encounter humpbacks, sea lions and bald eagles!! It can be tough to capture those moments because they usually happen fast and without warning. But we hope that you can keep those memories forever!! Please join us again the next time you find yourself in the area :)
