  • After years of whale watching being on my bucket list, we took the zodiac tour today and it was amazing! Honestly it was rainy and I was super seasick and it was still one of the greatest days ever. The crew was so personable and really dedicated to making sure each person had a great time and they were expert whale spotters even in the fog! The whales got really close to the boat and it was awesome to learn about them- the guides knew one of their names and was really great at pointing out birds and things as well. Definitely recommend!
  • Breathtaking experience of a lifetime! The Zodiac tour is the way to go, as we were right down on the water with the wales. Our captain knew the waters so well, he knew where to go to find us whales; we observed humpbacks joyfully slapping their flukes on the surface, other pods relaxing on the surface, along with spectacular tail fin dives. Porpoises - lots of them. The boat ride itself was comfortable and thrilling. I will never forget this and I guarantee I'm going back one day for more. Michelle Muise
  • Can't wait to do this again next year. The staff are very knowledgeable, the experience and views were breathtaking, we got to see the whales very close, fortunately the weather also cooperated and the sea was calm. Would definitely recommend this excursion
  • Great team of people working to make your whale watching experience great. Very professional and polite. Informative experience tons of knowledge on the marine life. The captain worked hard and tried his best to get us as close as possible to the whales. And we did, great experience over all highly recommend this company. Truly appreciated the fact that after some time we would move away from the whales and let them be, if other boats approached, the captain would also leave so that the whales did not feel in danger. Thank you all for your hard work and commitment to marine life.
  • We had such an amazing experience with this company. They were all so kind and very diligent in helping us with what we needed. Our zodiac driver, Jamie, was fantastic and very knowledgable about the whales and other sea life we saw. We saw close to 9-10 humpbacks, a dolphin, a seal, and plenty of seabirds. The zodiac ride itself was thrilling and fun. I highly recommend this company for all your whale-watching endeavors.
