The exhibit was much better when the 2 pigs moco and loco were there. we watched them grow from little piglets to adult pigs. Could they bring 2 more piglets back? It was fun to keep coming back and wathching them grow.More

Following a week of watching distant whale activity from our deck, we decided to give this whale watch and try. Small group, small boat, excellent naturalist... and plenty of whales

Booked through the Ritz, did whale watching with a certified marine biologist on a good sized boat with about 15 other people. Great informative tour.
