We had a lovely adventure to see lots of whales and birds. The provided survival suits keep you warm and safe, and the little boat means everyone gets a great view, and the chance to ask questions of the knowledgeable guide. I am so happy...More

A great crew to go to for whale and wildlife watching! We took our kiddos and had a great time. We saw tons of whales and our guide was incredibly knowledgeable. A must-do!

It was an INCREDIBLE experience. We had booked on O'Briens originally and it was great but we saw the ecotours boat and went back two days later to go on this tour. The coolest experience of my life we were surrounded by 50 plus whales...More

The tour was really great. There were whales everywhere and to say a lot of birds would be a huge understatement. The captain was friendly and knowledgable. I appreciate the way he didn't chase the whales around. Once he sensed the whales had had enough...More

We went out on the medium boat, which happened to be the right size for our group of 6. We were very lucky with weather - the wind was there, but not too strong, and it was not cold, not raining - and even luckier...More

I had high expectations for this boat trip. At $97 (with tax) per person, this is by far the most expensive boat option in the area. I thought since there were three key "attractions" in the bay that day (whales, puffins and an iceberg) that...More
