Lucky day - we saw so many whales it was truly unbelievable. To top it off two large humpback whales came up right beside us on the boat just prior to heading back. Very knowledgeable crew and entire staff. Fabulous day.

We went out with Captain John's boat to see the whales this July. There were several beautiful whales, some alone and others paired up. Tail flukes, blowing bubbles to feed. Awesome adventure! Going again in August when different friends visit.

We had a great day. A little chilly but we were dressed for it. We watched these marvelous creatures feed and saw a mother and her calf. This is one of my favorite activities to do whenever possible. Highly recommend

I had never experienced anything like it. To see those enormous creatures up close was just magnificent. We were able to see lots of them with their babies too. I will never forget this experience for as long as I live.
