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 had an amazing day. We saw many humpback whales. The staff was very informative and helpful. We asked many questions about different things and they did not mind answering questions. Was going overjoyed with this trip.
