  • Enjoyable, friendly crew, comfortable boat. Just wish we'd seen at least one whale this time. Maybe next time. It's well worth the reasonable ticket price.

  • The tour was great. The boat wasn't even close to full and the captain and crew were very nice.

  • Sorry, no whales you can't order them - but so many dolphins and lot of background knowledge about these animals told by the the skipper. A wonderful last day in the States

  • It was an amazing trip. We did not see any whales but were threated to a huge family of dolphins. It was amazing !!!

  • Really enjoyed the tour. The employees are nice. Thanks to viator for the discounted tickets

  • Great trip from start to finish. Would highly recommend

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Very enjoyable experience. Unfortunately we did not see any whales on our excursion, but the operators went out of their way to find us interesting sea life including a pod of dolphins that entertained us and some sea lions. We are looking forward to returning during a better time of year for whales.

  • We enjoyed the trip. Ship was very clean and snacks were available. The captain was very informative but repeated himself too often concerning the types of whales that are in the area. Unfortunately we did not see any whales on this trip. We did see literally hundreds of dolphins. We will try again in hope of seeing some whales.

  • We had a great time. We saw a mom and two baby grey whales. The captain and the crew were great. Gave us lots of information and made the trip very enjoyable. I would recommend this trip for sure.
