We went on a morning excursion and found whales at Jeffries Ledge. Saw several groups to include a Mom Bunji and get calf. Very informative and not too crowded so everyone could see. Very enjoyable. Would do again.

Awesome trip. Saw 80 plus dolphins and 8 or so whales. But when the visiblity was less than 100 feet it was difficult. The naturalist and captain went above and beyond.

This was our first whale watching experience and we also had our one year old with us. It was hugely successful (about a dozen whale sightings and a super pod of dolphins)! The boat is nice and comfortable and it’s not so packed that it’s...More
