  • we saw a bunch of whales. a mother and calf got pretty close to the boat. friendly staff. knowledgable.

  • Very friendly and helpful crew! Especially enjoyed Kim’s knowledge and information—learned so much and of course was so encouraging in efforts to protect humpbacks. So amazing to see them!

  • This was a really fun trip! The naturalist, Denver, provided us with a lot of information about whales, and did a great job of answering our questions. We did see a couple of whales! They put on a really nice show! I would highly recommend the Body Gloce excursion. The whole crew was pleasant and fun!
