Great Whale Watching

stars

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.

Awesome Whale Watching Experience!

Everyone was friendly and helpful from the time we checked in until the trip was finished. We saw so many whales and got some great pictures. I highly recommend the sunset trip. Purchasing a ticket to ride above is well worth it.
