Well, before I went on the excursion many people reported that whale sightings were not happening - something to do with the water temp this year, so I prepared myself not to expect to see them and maybe see other creatures and enjoy the ride....More

Extremely disappointing. I wish I could give this company a zero. 4 hour tour and we did not see any Whales. Why are these "Whale tours" even allowed in June? What a major rip off. Your chances to see any Whales is less than 20...More

Based on reviews, I did not have high expectations for the trip. I was hoping for a fun boat ride and wildlife would be a bonus. We ended up with a ride of a lifetime... 10-12 whale sightings, a couple dozen Dolphins, jelly fish, porpoise,...More

Don't go if your group get sea sick, boat travelled very fast but since it is small so the ride will get choppy.
