Had a fantastic time in the morning and we're lucky to see a Whale this late in the season. A friendly and small family boat made it more enjoyable.

Just a fantastic experience. Jason was an exceptional tour guide. The whales cooperated and put on a half hour plus display up close and personal. Highly recommend Dee Jay Tours.
