Second time with Captain Wayne and both were incredible. Kids both times loved it and so do the adults. Small boat means you can get in closer and with only a few of you all your questions get answered. This trip no whales but some...More
Unfortunately for us the fog rolled in as we motored out off the jetty which meant there were no whale sightings despite Captain Wayne trying his best and liaising with other tour boats on the sea. Despite that we did enjoy the tour as we...More

Do you have to pay more than a big boat tour? Yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely. Captain Wayne and his co-captain are both friendly, knowledgeable, and respectful (of humans and nature) people. Since we were in a small boat, we were able to become...More
We were here during September, which is not a good time to see whales, but, we went on the trip to see Puffins. Which we saw! His boat is small, so we could go close to the shore of the island. There were many many...More
