We were able to see humpback whales breaching. We followed around a pod of 3 whales as well as a mom and her calf. It was an excellent afternoon and did not disappoint!

We had such a blast! We didn’t expect to see any whales but our Naturalists were excellent at pointing out where to look and the patterns of the whales’ dives after the initial spotting. Highly recommend!

Whale watching at its finest!
, Sep 2021
We had such a great time on this trip. We saw Orca's, Humpbacks, dolphins, and of course sea lions. The marine biologist on our trip was great...sorry, can't remember his name! They wanted to make sure we saw all that we could and made the trip VERY worthwhile! Highly recommend this trip!
