GREAT WHALE WATCHING

"Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Right after I purchased our tickets online, I received an email with detailed information on directions, parking, when to arrive, what to bring, etc. Our whale watching cruise lasted for 2 1/2 hours and we saw several groups of humpback whales. From the time we arrived to when we left, every employee was friendly, courteous, informative, and very helpful. We couldn’t have asked for a better whale watching company."
