Great time with grandchildren ages 12,10 & 5. Saw whales in first 30 minutes out. Great knowledgeable guides that showed respect for whales and fishermen while showing their clients a good time. Granted it was a beautiful day and whales were nearby and active.

We took a trip with 40 young teens and had a great time! The staff was knowledgeable and friendly and the group caught over 400 mackerel! I highly recommend Al Gauron's operation, we'll be back again next year!

Went in two whale watch tours with these guys and both were great! The vessel, the Northern Star, is a large size and they don’t pack people on so it never felt crowded. The captain got us to spots with a variety of sealife including...More
