Great whale watching trip! We saw tons of whales and our tour guide was extremely informative. The boat was a good size for our toddler too (less rocky on the ocean)

I have gone on several whale watches and snorkel trips with Pacific Whale Foundation and they are always top notch! The staff on board are always courteous and the whale watches are very educational with a Biologist on board. Great fun for the whole family!
