Very friendly staff, we saw a pod of pilot whales, and the captain maneuvered the boat for both sides to view, seas got a bit rough and captain and crew kept safety and comfort as the high priority. Dress to keep warm, and we took rain jackets...good decision, we could of used our rain pants as well. Crew offered poncho'... More

We were surprised at the reasonable cost to get a chance to view whales and seals. We had to wait longer than expected due to the boat searching for whales with another load of passengers. We decided to stay at a local motel and made arrangements on recommendations from co-owner of Guaranteedwhales.com She was so friendly and filled us in... More

We took the 2hr tour on the double decker boat. Water was rough that day but we did see a lot of pilot whales. They stressed safety a lot and seemed to care about their passengers.

We had an amazing fun going into the waters and seeing whales up and close. The staff is courteous and may also go an extra mile if you don't see whales. We saw minkes and seals in the waters right beside our boat. It was an amazing experience.

My parents (70&77), my brother, his wife and I had a great time. When we arrived we were warned it may be a little choppy and that we would likely see pilot whales and if we got lucky humpbacks. The Captain, his wife and brother in law were warm, super friendly and informative. We saw a bunch of pilot whales... More

After being 2 other tours canceling last minute on us captain Richard and crew saved our day by taking us out even though no other guests booked for that trip. Found a group of pilot whales in no time. Had a great trip. Highly recommended.

I took this boat tour with my family expecting to see whales as its "guaranteed"... Not only did we not see any whales, but the tour guide did not volunteer any information during the whole tour. Everyone on the boat sat quietly waiting for some commentary. It would have been nice to learn something about area, past whale sightings, anything!... More

We arrived ready and excited to do our whale watching tour today, only to be "greeted" by a moody, unpleasant man at the desk. We told him we were here for the afternoon tour and he said, "Can't you read--it's been cancelled." I was there with my mother in law, who has been wanting to go whale watching all her... More
