I took my photography tour there last year and it was excellent. We photographed numerous whales close to the boat and seabirds diving into the ocean to capture fish, practically right beside the boat. This is an excellent tour!

On tour and didn't have the option of going later in the day...going first thing in the morning. Apparently it is better to go out in the late afternoon since everyone knows by then, where to find the pods. It was a nice time out...More

Although we did not actually spot any Whales we did enjoy the boat trip. The crew kept us entertained even though ten people got very seasick.

We did not see any whales unfortunately but we did enjoy our time out on the water and were able to see some stunning local scenery from a different perspective. The captain did make every attempt to "find" the whales but it just didn't happen...More

I went on the Saturday night 5:00 whale watching cruise. Luckily for me, Saturday nights are their slowest time. The boat was practically empty -- just 6 adults and 3 kids! It was great. We were all able to move about the boat and take...More

It was my first time whale watching and it was a great experience. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and we saw at least 6 whales 30 feet away from us. It was a great experience and I would definitely do it again.

Went to whale cruisers who offered a 2.5-3 hr cruise for 2 adults and 2 kids for less that $100, which suited the budget. Waves were very high and other services weren't going out, but these guys said they would....we were nervous, but the cruise...More
