Not only was it a beautiful day but we saw three humpbacks (Trowel, Echo and Cacophony?). We also got to see a sunfish up close and a gray seal! We had a great time and I got my ocean "fix" .

The boat was extremely clean and the staff amazing. They had lots of info for us and were pleasant and seemed like hey really enjoy their jobs.

All of the staff were so friendly and informative. They also have food, drinks and snacks on board at very reasonable prices. We are DEFINITELY coming again!!!!

I gave these tickets to an associate and her husband. (Steven and Georgette Kent). They went out yesterday and had a great time! Although it rained heavily in the morning, it cleared and the visibility was wonderful. They saw a few varieties of whales and other water life and were impressed by the staff/crew. They were very informative, outlining the types of sea life and where they would be be located. A thoroughly enjoyable trip. I received kudos for the gift!
