Our trip was amazing. We saw two pods, each with 4 whales (one included a baby). We spent a total of about 5 hours on the water. The scenery and weather were beautiful, which made for an amazing day.

Thank kristeninrr

I can really recommend this. Saw many killer whales, an Humpback whale and Sea lions. The guide was informative and the boat trip was good. Thought that I should see one or two whales but I got to see much more.

We had wonderful weather when we went on Sept 24th. Just dress in layers. We were provided with a life suit which will keep you dry. I wouldn't imagine the whales are affected by the rain. Book it and enjoy!
