The ship itself was clean and pleasant - well cared for. The Captain was excellent, striving to show us as much wildlife as possible. He also gave you a sense of complete trust. The 2 young Scientists that handled the activities were completely genuine. They were very accommodating-great with the children and adults! Knowledgeable, pleasant and kind. Yes, it's a bit 'spendy' but worth it in my pinion.

Had such a great time on the Marine Diacovery Tours. We had the pleasure of watching four whales! The crew and captain were great!
I highly recommend taking a trip out the next time you are in Newport!

Beautiful. Informative. Cheerful and knowledgeable crew. At the beginning of the trip we dropped crab traps into Newport Bay, then we went out into the ocean. We got lots and lots of looks at gray whale. Also saw plenty of auks flying and swimming. Then we came back and pulled up the crab traps. All the crabs were identified and eventually thrown back in.
