    Awesome morning on the water. Numerous other whale watching boats desperately searching for the Humpbacks while we were amongst the whales for 90 mins straight. Great skipper and great crew. Beautiful comfortable boat! Cheers for the memories.

    I had an amazing experience when I went to watch whales with them. The crew was really excited, attentive and helpful! We really loved the tour.
    An special attention to Skip, the photographer. He was so nice to us, took beautiful pictures of us and the whales.
    I’ll be back for sure!

    We had an amazing time! The staff was all so lovely and kind - calling and helping us as we sprinted to the yacht with a 2 year old in tow. I saw them kindly and graciously help sick passengers, confused passengers, elderly passengers, just doing everything they could to be wonderful. Thanks so much for a great trip! And the whales were cool too!
