Our boat was clean and had plenty of comfortable seats as well as great open space at the bow and stern. There was just enough commentary to be helpful but not distracting. We saw an enormous pod of dolphins. The 2- hour length was just right.

late afternoon is a special time to see whales

we took a late afternoon tour that had very few people on board. It was so perfect! It seemed like everyone on board were hobbyist whale watchers and photographers and naturalists. We learned SO MUCH aobut the two Fin whales we saw and the nursery pod of dolphins we hung out with for a long while. The boat was comfortable, clean and literally everyone on board was extremely knowledgable.

Dancing Dolphins

The whale watching trip was full of dolphins, jumping out of the water - it felt almost choreographed - should have had lots of music because it was like a dance that went on for many minutes all around the ship. We only got a glimpse of a fin whale. It was quite chilly so I recommend you bring very warm clothes.

We took our two girls out for the experience and they loved everything! We were able to see a mama whale and her calf along with 100's of dolphins. It was a great and memorable time.
