Our trip on the “Taz” was beyond words! We consistently saw whales and other wildlife! We even experienced humpback whales lunge feeding! The crew was kind, considerate and extremely helpful! Highly recommended! Truly a once in a lifetime experience!

Tod and Mik did a great job showing us a fantastic time! We saw seals, brown bears, porpoise, and lots of humpbacks! I cannot say enough good about this tour.

Thanks to Todd we had a great morning viewing whales. We were lucky to see the humpbacks bubble feeding plus 2 orca whales. Todd’s very knowledgeable and respectful of the whales. Snacks and drinks included. A definite must do activity. The photos speak for themselves!
