It was a fantastic trip - we were lucky enough to see two whales breaching as well as tail slaps and spouting. Well worth doing, would recommend it to anyone! Boat crew and Ashley were brilliant

We had wanted to go whale watching for some time and this trip had everything. Having been on safari many times we know that you can't always get to see any animals, but we were lucky enough to see 8 humpback whales. The weather was glorious and fog free as we sailed under the golden gate bridge a great start to the day, and we hadn't gone much further before a whale was spotted - magnificent. The ecologist who accompanied us had lots of information and made us feel very special. Some of passengers did feel seasick and the advice to take pills was necessary. Altogether a brilliant day and one we will not forget.

The trips was one of the most amazing I've ever been on - the captain and crew went out of their way to make sure that we saw some amazing sites, and still respected the wildlife we saw. HIGHLY recommend!

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TRIP. OUR GUIDE ASHLEY WAS SO IMFORMATIVE AS WAS ALL OF THE CREW. WE WERE FORTUNATE TO WHALES AND THE ONE THAT CAME HEAD FIRST OUT OF THE WATER WAS AN AWESOME SIGHT WHICH WILL STAY WITH US FOR A LONG TIME. THE WHOLE TRIP WAS A FIRST CLASS EXPERIENCE THAT WE WOULD RECOMMEND VERY HIGHLY AND IT IS A MUST DO IF YOU GET THE CHANCE. THANK YOU FOR AN AMAZING TRIP.

Loved it! Very professional, but down to earth. I particularly loved that they always ensured our presence didn't upset the whales. Followed a Humpback mom and baby for quite some time. Saw sea lions, Harbor Porpoise, mola mola (sun fish), egg yolk jellyfish, and tons of birds. Ashley was amazing!

This was terrific! We saw Blue Whales and Humpback whales feeding together! That doesn't happen everyday. Saw Puffins, jelly fish, seals and a rare sea turtle. The guides were amazing! Very knowledgeable and fun. Definitely take something for sea sickness. You do bounce alot out there, but well worth it!
