Captain Bob took us out in a zodiac and searched for whales and my goodness did he find them! We were within 15 feet and swimming below our boat. The cost was well spent!

Yes, there is a very good chance that you will. Call the Capt and ask, as he has a very good pulse on what is moving around out there at all times!

Absolutely take the tour if weather-permitting. The Capt will tell you if the sightings are good at the time you call to book. Discovery Sea Adventures.
