We did a whale tour in Alaska, but felt this exceeded it with more whales and closer views. Our friends were impressed with the videos we shot and shared. Very knowledgeable crew. Definitely worth the cost.

We were out a little over 5 hours. Went in off season, morning. Plenty of seats. Saw whales, dolphins, and a seal! It was amazing. Great people.
