The trip was a little shorter than advertised, the drink tickets that were included in the price didn't actually buy you a fell drink.. had to pay extra on top of that. Saw some whales but no dolphins! Little to no commentary from captain or crew on what we were seeing (what type of whale, etc)

We really enjoyed our whale watching trip...we saw 2 whales straight away before we'd properly got out of the harbour! After these sightings we only saw sealions for the rest of the trip. Nice to have a bar on board & not so many tourists that you can't find a good seat. Friendly staff too.

I loved that the guy that served us drinks was so helpful. He was patient and fast and could move on that boat better than anyone. The experience the music and the appetizers were amazing paired with the wine. Price point was great. Will come again and again.

This was a nice little sunset cruise. Not overbooked and just the right amount of people. Staff was attentive and very pleasant. They bring your drinks to you rather that you having to keep your balance while sailing. Nice little meat, cheese, fruit, dip and cracker appetizer area. I have to give a shout out to the Captain. We sailed... More

I hosted a sunset cruise for ten with a wine tasting theme as we cruised along. Kathy prepared a tray of cheeses, nuts, etc. for each person along with tasting notes! Fred was a terrific captain. Stephen was an awesome crew who doted on us the whole time. This couple (Fred and Kathy) have a wonderful business saavy, so professional,... More

The booking experience to the boat ride was smooth and easy. We will do this again for sure. It was our second time and great for all ages. We saw 2 whales and many other sea animals. What a beautiful day.
