Hi, going to see whales with Thalia is an experience beyond this reality. She is a marine biologist and communicates with the whales, perceives them, she took me into their world, their song and the magic they are and the contribution they are to this wonderful and magnificent planet. Thank you!

VN just does a great job. We have done the same tour twice, with a new one coming up, and been VERY satisfied both times. We have had both Thalia and Victor and have found many whales with each, with up close and personal experiences. They are respectful of the rules and nature which we love. Just an excellent experience.

Very personable tour. Smaller crowd and a wonderful lunch! Very enjoyable day.

Another great day on the water. Even though the season is ending and at least 3/4 of the whales have started their migration north, we found many of the stragglers and witnessed their activity, including over a dozen breaches.

I was nervous about heading out late in the whale watching season, but Natours (and the whales) did not disappoint!). 15 minutes into the tour, we saw our first whale, to be followed by many others. The grand finale was a 2 ton baby who breached no less than 15 times! Victor, our guide, was excellent, giving us a great introduction to all about whales and patiently answering all our questions for hours! Highly recommend!

Thalia and Angel were amazing and so were the whales! Our tour was toward the end of the whale watching season and they still managed to find us 31 whales! They went the extra mile for sure by taking us 22 miles up the bay from the marina where we found the last group of 8 whales. This was a once in a lifetime experience. On the way back to the marina Thalia spotted a pod of approximately 500 spotted dolphins! Angel "hooked" up with the pod and away we went with dolphins on both sides of the boat. We stayed with them for a while and had to say good bye as our tour was coming to an end. This is a small boat tour--there were 9 of us plus Thalia and Angel. The most they take is 12. Thalia is a marine biologist with so much knowledge that she shares with you. They have the necessary permits and fly the correct flag for LEGAL whale watching. We are already planning our trip for next year and will be booking with them again.

The tour was great!!!! Victor is experienced in whale behaviors and we got to see a baby whale breaching!!! I loved that we could look out over the sea on the balcony and they served lunch! Angel was a great captain making sure the boat was in position for everyone to see!! I highly recommend this tour!! Very pleased!! I even like the history and photos before we began our journey. My 9 year old loved it too!!
