  • We have done many whale watching trips in the past and this is by far my favorite. The boat itself was very clean and the setup insures that you never miss anything going on. Our party ranged in age from 3 to 80 and everyone enjoyed the trip. The captain, Darcy, and marine biologist on board were knowledgeable and helpful. And the wildlife was incredible-whales, sea lions, dolphins and all types of birds. There was something to see throughout the entire trip. We will definitely be doing this again!
  • I bought the whale watching cruise for my best friend's birthday and we had an absolute blast! The tour was well worth the cost and Darci was an excellent and energetic guide. We were a little late getting to the boat and they were so polite and understanding about our last minute arrival. It was an awesome and unforgettable experience!
