Informative and friendly staff. Unfortunately we did not see any whales on our trip but I'm still satisfied. I would do it again, my friend has been 4,5 times and has seen Whales on every occasion except this time.

We went for whale watching with the whole family, spend 5 times 69 dollars. I thought that 85% change to see "something" would be just the right number to not garantee whales and to convince costumers to take the change to go on a trip....More

One of the most amazing 4 hours of my life! We saw about 20 whales. Some followed the boat for a long time. The water is much calmer than other whale watching trips I've been on.
