Tails - Captain Andrew and Noah were awesome, had some choppy seas, and it took a while to find some whales. We stayed out late and saw a mother, calf and escort whale. Didn’t see any breaching, but it was a great experience

Whales are awesome! - Great whale searching adventure. Late in the season but a few whales were found and caused happiness and excitement. Captain Andrew and his First Mate Shane were great! Do this tour if you get the opportunity!

A great experience! - Captain Andrew and Canon were awesome hosts and guides! They helped us quickly spot some whales and then asked if we wanted to try and find more. They took us much further than expected and we got up close views of several whales during our tour. They made the trip fun and interesting and we would totally use them for any tours they offered!

Trip of a lifetime. - A trip of a lifetime. If you are ever wanting to see some of the most animals in earth. You need to take this tour. The crew was kind and informative. Got to track a pod of about four whales most of the trip. I’ll never get over seeing the whales so close. I would do this trip again without hesitation. You want to take this tour!!

Lucky day - The crew was outstanding and knowledgeable. We were very fortunate to see some whales this time compared to other whale trips in other places. We had a whale trip some years back in Bar Harbor Maine that was great as well. Always try to be optimistic with lower expectations that's when you will have your best luck and viewing. Would love to whale watch a 4th time sometime soon. Thanks again !!

Feeling lucky! - Awesome experience, captain and guide were great. Amazingly lucky to see one breach by the boat on the way back to shore! Personally, have experienced better value tours around the globe to go whale watching BUT this was very good. We followed a mother and calf for a long time and respected the fact we should try remain 100 yards away from them - although the lucky moment with one breaching happened way closer! Definitely worth doing if in peak season.
