Worth a trip
, Mar 2020
Fun time, saw a decent number of whales. Water was a little rocky but drink prices were reasonable and live music was good.
Full value for money

Very polite and serviceminded crew and captain and no unfullfilled promises - lots of whales to watch 😀
, Mar 2020
I know you can't predict when you will see whales, but the captain spotted a group early in the cruise and we observed them for most of the time.

enjoyed the boat very much. Tour guide was excellent. She made sure everyone present and accounted for. Food was excellent. Saw whales, they just weren't very active that day.
Nice outing
, Mar 2020
We had a good time. Found humpback whales just outside the harbor and never traveled very far from there. Saw several whales with one breech, which is a good day. Onboard lunch was a sandwich build, nothing fancy but sufficient. Crew was very friendly and helpful. Marine biologist was informative and entertaining. Tour operator didn’t good job informing about pick up arrangements.

Friendly and helpful staff. The captain of the ship was able to find numerous cetaceans. Great views and scenery on top of wildlife.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Saw lots of activity from dolphins, sea turtles and whales. Saw 2 tail flaps but not a sign of the elusive breech. Lunch was good. Buffet style deli sandwiches. W

Do NOT buy lunch! You’ll get crap . 1/4 piece buns and cold lunch meat! No one re stocks! When it’s gone it’s gone! Also not enough room by rails on top to see 😞. Would not recommend this. Save your $$!
Whales are awesome!
, Mar 2020
The whales were awesome! The water was a little rough but the crew was great. The food was good and plentiful and we saw whales. The spotters were very good.
So so
, Feb 2020
So so trip. Boat is fine and we saw blowholes, humps and flukes. In february the whales don't feed so breeching isn't as common. I understand its wildlife and they do what they do. What bothered me is we spotted whales further out of the bay but we putt putted in the bay and did not leave to check out the more active whales. Did not spend much time above idle on the engines. Specifically took longer tour thinking we would go further out. Didn't happen

Aloha! Thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience with us. We're sorry to hear that it wasn't as exciting as you had hoped. The ocean is often quite unpredictable, and sightings of underwater life vary from hour to hour. We appreciate your valuable feedback and will be sure to share it with our team. Mahalo!
