  • I was referred to 7 Seas by word of mouth and could not be happier with the experience my girlfriend and I had together on our trip. The entire team was super friendly from the moment we approached...

  • Such a fun and easy tour to book! Super helpful and knowledgeable staff! Rough ride out on the boat, but once you see the whales and dolphins it's all worth it!!

  • AMAZING EXPERIENCE! Whales are my favorite animals and this was mine and my boyfriend's first time whale watching. We went on the 1:30 trip on 10/23/22. We saw around 10 humpback whales and one named Orion put on a show for us! We saw 2 breaches, 3 chin slaps, and a fin slap. I got so many great photos and videos, I'll add a few of the good ones. I'd be lying if I said I didn't cry while watching these magnificent creatures! The crew on the boat were great as well! The captain did great getting the boat into a position to see the whales, but not disturb the whales at the same time. The narrator on the boat was so amazing and he was so knowledgeable about the whales. I can't wait to come back! Thank you 7 Seas, for the most amazing day of my life! You truly made my dreams come true!
  • Can’t say enough about this experience. First there was a potential storm the morning we were supposed to go. The evening before they emailed explaining the weather and offering to switch to the afternoon; which we did. Staff once we arrived was also great and helpful in all regards. For the actual trip, the boat was not too crowded, had decent outdoor seating and clean bathrooms. Took about 100 minutes but eventually got to the whales and wow. We came upon about 12 different humpback whales and often they were practically touching the boat. My kids (7 and 3) loved it and were in awe. Money 110% well spent.
