We saw about 20 whales in our 2 hours. Usually about 100 yards away. You have really good views on the top deck, and they do a good job of finding whales for you. Wish we would've seen a whale closer up, but that is more luck of the draw than anything since they can only go

We saved about $15 per person by going on the 7:30 am whale watch tour. The boat is good sized which helps with a smoother ride for those that get motion sickness easily. Both times the boat didn't have to many people on board. Maybe 50 or so. That makes it easier to move around
