We were originally booked to take the Whale Watch and Snorkel tour on sunday AM, Feb 12, but after driving a few hours and arriving for 7:30 check-in we were told our tour was cancelled due to high swells. We were dissappointed but we re-booked (Minus the snorkel portion for a day later in the week). We really wanted to... More

We went on an 8 AM tour in February of 2017. We had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend this experience to anyone. Our crew consisted of Casey, Mike and Emma. Each was knowledgeable, helpful and easy to get along with. Despite years of experience, they are as excited about seeing whales as people going on the trip for... More

Do yourself a favor and join Adventure X for a whale watch. Hey, any crew that goes out on days off, just to enjoy and study the whales, HAS to be good. And they are! Captain Casey knows exactly where to cruise and when, maneuvering, and siting the great Humpbacks as enthusiastically as any guest. His insight, the music he... More

These people are awesome! Casey makes sure you see every whale in the vicinity and his cute staff are so pleasant, we loved our morning, went twice and really enjoyed their music, banana bread, fresh pineapple and of course the whales... listening to them was awesome ( they have a microphone to hear the whales communicate with each other)!! Awesome... More

We went out on the 8-10 am whale watching tour February 13, 2017. What seemed like a slow start picked up when two humpback whales put on a great show just for our boat. We had seen some action, and were headed back, when our captain spotted some whales. Immediately he turned to give us another opportunity for a sighting.... More

Our 8am whale watching trip yesterday was amazing. I lost count of how many whales we saw. One came up right next to the boat. The boat is great. It was a smooth ride and since it is small we could see on all sides of the boat. The Captain and crew were very knowledgeable and obviously enjoy their work.... More

Absolutely fabulous time with Captain Kelsey, Captain Mike and Kim this morning. Lots of pectoral fin slapping and nose dives. Few breaches and a couple swimming close to the boat .

We had two things going for us: a knowledgeable, friendly, experienced captain and crew, and an extraordinarily active cluster of whales that dazzled even the veterans on board. Credit the captain and crew for knowing where to look, and high-tailing it to the spots where the whales were congregating. What an extraordinary experience! Highly recommended.

Ok - this was such a you-must-do-it experience; don't hesitate. Thoughtful & smart guides answered every question and enhanced the excursion. Bring binoculars, sunglasses and a towel (you might get wet depending on where you sit). If you get motion sickness, you should know it might be choppy. That said - don't wait a second to book it - DO... More
