The tour was well organized and the operators were friendly and accommodating. The day we went was fairly windy so two issues were people getting quite wet from the spray and motion sickness. At the beginning I think they should have distributed rain capes and raincoats according to size (as much as possible.) Once the boat is going fast it is almost impossible to cover up with the wind blowing. Some larger people were trying to fit into a small raincoat when they needed a cape. And it is difficult to dress over a life jacket. Motion sickness! Some people were prepared for the possibility, however some were not or it was a surprise to them. Regardless it is a horrible feeling. It would have been good if the operators had a small emergency supply or even ask if one of the other members had some to share. These are just ideas that would have made things much more enjoyable.
We loved the smaller boat (even though one of us got sea sick) but we saw whales and lists of dolphins. But what made it The best experience was our guide Christina, her passion and love of whales and the ocean really made the trip extra special. Am recommend to all my friends!
Such an informative day and we saw so many whales! They were so respectful of the whales’ habitat and gave them a lot of space while still allowing us to see them. Definitely recommend Eco Tours. A
My son, 6 year old grandson & I were on the ECO Whale Watching Tour. Melissa & Raoul were professional and very knowledgeable. The trip was very interesting, respectful of nature and most enjoyable. We saw 14 Whale sightings for a total of 24 whales. So majestic and breathtakingly beautiful! We all learned so much about the Humpback Whale. Thank you for such a worthwhile experience. As a surprise we were served a light lunch. We would highly recommend this tour. Suzanne, Chris & Curtis.
From start to finish this was a class act. No waiting in long lines an informative guide and captain and we saw lots of whales and dolphin. Small boat made it more adventurous and lots of fun. Even in the rain we really enjoyed it. The best part unlike the large boats they did not chase the whales. If you want to do whale watching go with Eco Tours.
Good adventure, friendly and knowledgeable staff that respects wildlife.. Small and agile boat, easy to maneuver near sightings. We were a group of 11 on a boat intended to hold 12 and this felt uncomfortably tight. One person didn't have a bench seat and had to bounce around sitting backwards in the bow. I would suggest taking no more than 10 people.
