Lots of fun, worth the price. Got to watch whales and learn about their habitats and ways. The pilot of the boat was a load of fun, and the guide as well. Very informative.

We toured with Jake who was an amazing young person with intimate knowledge of the whales (he was able to identify them and name them by their tails. We were incredibly fortunate in that we also saw orca whales which are not often seen.

We have two sizes of boats, 24 passenger and 49. They are all custom made and comfortable. The slightly larger boat has an extra top deck so you never feel crowded.
