Friendly crew. My teenage girls loved riding in the bridge. Saw plenty of whales!
Courteous service, calm, open-minded, knowledgeable.
Outstanding tour that prioritized the wellbeing of the whales. Very impressed with Tod's knowledge and his personality was perfect for something of this nature.
Captain Todd and First Mate Michaela were first-rate in every way. My wife and I had a great time and the crew went out of their way to make sure we had a grand experience. In fact, when one of us stupidly showed up at the dock wearing shorts and a thin shirt (heck, the shore temp was almost 80), they graciously provided me (woops, gave that away) a spare coat which appeared out of nowhere. Hey, it can be very windy, very wavey and very cold out there hunting whales! And hunt we did, moving from place to place and sneaking around from blow to blow, seeing our fair share of dorsals, backs and flukes. In fact, we even got to witness one whale bent on single-handedly destroying the bay with his massive tail up out of the water and slapping dozens of times in succession. Thank you for a great and memorable trip, guys!
Fantastic trip! Wonderfully unpretentious and focused on ensuring everyone had a great time! Would highly recommend!
