This was a fantastic excursion and well worth the money. Our raft was clean, sturdy and in good shape. There was plenty of space for all the passengers and seating was comfortable. Our staff provided excellent information and showed knowledge about the whales. The highlight was having 2 whales swim under our raft and pop up right next to the side of the raft for a great photo opportunity. I would HIGHLY recommend this whale watching tour.

Wow! What a fun tour! We saw ALOT of whales and whale activity during this boat trip! We highly recommend this tour, since it was on a sturdy metal bottomed raft vs. a big boat with 100 people. This raft had a small capacity of people, and the captain was able to zip around quickly to go to where he saw any activity in the water! We saw alot, and were able to attempt to get MANY photos! We would highly recommend this whale watching tour!!!
