    An awesome time had by all. The crew was very knowledgeable and really passionate about education and conservation. The smaller boat meant fewer people and much closer view of the whales when they decided to approach. Highly recommend!

    A fantastic experience in just 3 hours! There were 3 convenient departure options - we chose the 11am - 2pm tour as we only had a bit of time during the day. Our naturalist Aila and skipper Chris were great. We were also lucky to have the senior biologist on board (coincidence).
