We saw 8 to 10 whales on our trip. It was incredible!

Great day with lots of humpback whales and other nature like jellyfish, seals, birds, and otters.

A birthday never to be forgotten! Over and over again, two humpbacks breached together showing us their humongous open mouths. It happened right next to us! Gorgeous! We also saw countless backs and flukes. There were thousands of Sea Nettles all around us throughout the trip. The boat was magnificent, very large and stable, and sparkling clean. But I must say, our very favorite part of the whole wonderful experience was Kealyn our naturalist. She is definitely the coolest cucumber in the patch. She expertly and cheerfully answered our numerous questions about the sea life. The whole trip was truly a treasure.
