  • Amazing trip

    We so enjoyed the tour. We thought the trip was excellent from getting our tickets at a very fair price, getting on the boat snd feeling so very comfortable, and seeing some amazing sights! The water was choppy the day we went and the staff went above and beyond.,Sea sickness pills were offered to everyone. Wet suits were offered to all. I would highly recommend this tour! Thank you!

      We ventured to the islands this morning to find a total of 4 feeding humpback whales. In the afternoon we spotted our first humpback whale within 15 minutes. It would sometimes roll over and we could even see fish jumping out of the water before the whale could eat them! We then found another humpback whale.
