We went whale watching for the first time at the end of the season so we didn't see any killer whales but we saw another type of wake which was really cool. We also saw seals and sea lions and that was my favorite. Our...More

Been whale watching with Mystic Seas twice. Both times were very positive experiences! On the most recent trip, we saw both humpback whales and orcas. The crew is professional, personable and helpful!
