The rain and low cloud did not dampen my fantastic experience seeing a Hump Back and an Ocra as well as seals . The guides are very knowledgeable and one of them takes the photos and emails them to you so all you need to do is keep your eyes peeled for sightings .

We made a last minute decision to check out some whale watching and it did not disappoint - from the amazing help with booking and picking a tour (thank you Tess and Sophia), to a guide (Garrick) who is obviously smitten with all marine life, to the beautiful orcas that graced us with their presence! 10/10 would recommend!!

We enjoyed the scenery, the wild life and we actually saw killer whales. Wilma, who was in charge off our section of the catamaran, was very knowledgeable and it was interesting to have the opportunity to also speak with her face to face.

Incredible experience to see Orcas playing in the wild; Breaching and tail slapping for when felt like hours.. The surge feeding humpback whale was also amazing to see.
The guides were full of knowledge and stories to also keep us very entertained.

what a perfect day out! We saw a variety of wildlife: two families of orcas a huge Gray whale, sales, bald eagles and More. The team were outstanding: knowledgeable, personable and lovely. There was an exceptional naturalist on board, who shared her vast knowledge as she pointed out wildlife and talked about the area. There was also a wildlife photographer on board board, who not only took brilliant pictures, but shared them with everyone in the group. I cannot recommend this Tour highly enough!

Brilliant experience from start to finish. The crew were on the look out and when whales were spotted were able to quickly speed over for us to get a really good look. We saw Orcas, a grey whale (amazing!) and a couple of bald eagles. Wilma, our guide, was fantastic, explained all about what we were seeing and gave a great history about the area and the wildlife. Boat was really comfortable, we sat up on the top deck and had a great all round view. Well worth the money and highly recommend.

Staff was great from the get go. I messed up and booked the wrong day of our trip so we were double booked. They took care of working with Viator to fix that for me. They called to advise weather and parking which was great. Check-in was smooth and the staff onboard was excellent and it was nice knowing they were taking great photos so I wasn’t trying to catch the whales with my phone. Many thanks to Capt. Anthony, First Mate Roman, & Naturalists Wilma, Amanda, & Miranda!

This whale watching excursion was great! It was cold and rainy outside so it was nice to have an outdoor and indoor area on the boat. We saw a pod of orcas, some porpoises, sea lions and an eagle. The naturalists were knowledge. All around great trip!

This trip was amazing. The crew were obviously passionate about what they do. We were incredibly lucky and saw so much wildlife the highlight being a few pods of orcas. We must have seen 10 or more. The highlight of my trip !! I would definitely recommend. Thus experience will stay with me forever. One last thing they take photos so you can concentrate on watching the amazingly fabulous animals.
