The crew is absolutely amazing. There were two tour guides and captain on board. All very friendly and knowledgeable, their boat has an upper deck which makes it easy to see the whales. Highly recommend it!

Me, my husband and his 8 yo cousin went on it yesterday. We had a blast! Unfortunately, we didn’t see any whales as they had moved down the coast for feeding but we seen some harbour seals. We will be definitely coming back again!
