Such a fun trip and we saw so many whales! Chase, the skipper, and Zack, the naturalist, made the trip seem extra special. We’ve done several whale watching trips, and this was the best!

With not a whole lot of expectations for this tour (with Mother Nature being so unpredictable) we were shocked at the quantity of whales we witnessed in such a short period of time. Truly an awesome experience.

Absolutely amazing. Crew was friendly and knowledgeable about all the things with the whales. We even got to hear them which was sooo cool. 10/10 recommend. Much better than a large boat in my opinion.

We really enjoyed our Whale excursion. It was nice that it was a smaller vessel and we could ask questions. The skipper and his mate were very knowledgeable
