Great experience because we saw some whales just like we hoped to.

Nice clean boat and larger than most which allowed a "front row" experience while watching whales. Also, a marine biologist was on board to share her expertise and answer questions.

I enjoyed seeing the mammals, outstanding to see them. The water was breathtaking. The crew and boat were unsurpassed.

Loved the boat and enjoyed conversation with Patty. This was my all time favorite whale watch. We saw lots of whale activity. Thank you!

I loved the idea of purchasing the CD with our trip as well as the 2014 season to date. The photos were great and I could just enjoy watching whales. Great idea!!
