We did the sunset whale watching tour today, the staff were a great kelp, we had a whale of a time and so over 20 humpback whales! I would not pick an otter team! They were great, resourceful, and professional! We were accompanied by captain Bill, first mate Joe, Val, Jen and Mya

Hello ElEhYouAreEh, Thank you for your wonderful and detailed review! We are so glad that you had an amazing tour with rock star crew and (of course) the whales!! WOW a double mugging - that is incredibly rare! We are glad you made it out of there with your wallet though :) Without passengers like you we wouldn't be able to do what we love, so thank you for coming onboard and we hope to see you again soon!
