Because this boat is smaller and fast (compared to typical whale watching boats), you get to the whales relatively quickly and you get to spend more time watching and learning. I learn new things...

Mark is the best guide you will ever have!! We have been out twice with him and both times in different seasons has found the whales !! Not just from a distance but very close. I would never go with any one else ever again. I have never had so many compliments of my pictures of how Awesome they are !!! Never go on one of those large charter boats as I have and never saw a whale even in the distance. But mark has the knowledge and very personable and will give you a great experience!! Highly recommend and can’t wait to go again!!! I will never go with anyone else again!!!
The best whale watching trip ever! We had such an incredible experience. We saw 12 humpback whales, hundreds of common dolphins and hundreds of sea lions rafting. We had whales spy hopping all around our boat. For about 20 minutes we had two whales swimming all around our boat playing and showing off their spectacular size and beauty. Our captain was amazed and was just as excited to get photos. Highly recommend this company. The small boat makes for much more intimate adventure. The captain played music that just set the whole mood for the trip. I loved his knowledge and passion for the ocean.
