Most amazing adventure me and my girls ever had! We saw ocean sunfish, harbor seals, harbor porpoises, minke whales and 3 humpback whales that came up for us to visit with!

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!
