All reviews crab pot boat ride hour cruise clams two hours sea life catch and release whale watching great trip humpback whales amazing experience bucket list captain and crew oregon coast whole family couple of hours newport area
Fabulous crew and amazing sites. We must have seen 25 or more gray whales with humpback further out. Even the crew were taken with so many whales so close to the boat. I hated for this tour to end. Certainly a highlight of our trip.
The outing was filled with adventure, fun and education--and what a photographer's dream!!! The Naturalist was delightful--filling our day with facts while making it fun. We saw many, many whales and were able to get fabulous photos of these creatures in their own environment. We...More
This tour was on our itinerary and what a great time we all had!
Sea lions and harbor seals were residents on the rocks that we could see from the marina. They are always fun to watch.
The boat was very comfortable and could have...More

We were part of a tour group that stopped in for a whale watch. The captain and naturalist both were excellent guides and both were super impressed that we saw so many gray whales. It sure is frustrating trying to get good pictures of them,...More
They warned us several times that sea animals are wild and unpredictable so they “hoped” we’d see a whale but couldn’t promise anything. We were very glad to find a large grey whale in the Bay that we were able to observe for 30 minutes...More
Would highly recommend this. Comfortable vessel. Lots of chances to participate. Knowledgeable captain and marine biologist. Would do this again. Great scenery. One of the best cruises of this type that I have taken. Don’t miss the sea lions in the nearby cove.
We were second tour of the day. Wasn’t very busy, boat had lots of room to view off all sides. We were on the top deck and the weather co-operated fantastically.
We saw a grey whale (specific whale with scar on its back that returns...More

I don't remember how often the tours run. It seemed like there was at least a morning and afternoon?? but maybe they go out more often than that during the busy season. Same as MrBill we had a large group so made a reservation a month or so in advance. I would make a reservation, even if it is just a day or so ahead. Our boat was full.
