I have been on countless whale watching tours and today will be remembered as one of the best. To start with, being on a zodiac instead of a big boat makes the experience so much more fun and exciting. We were able to get right next to a very hyper and playful baby whale and it’s mother. The baby slapped its tale for the full hour we were parked next to them only to take a break to swim up to and directly under the boat 3 times!! Mama joined with their male escort! It was amazing! The baby whale said goodbye with a beautiful breach! Our guides were super nice and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend this outfit!

Crew was fantastic. We didn’t have to go far to see many, many whales during our tour. The captain told us some relevant information on whales during the tour and at one point they but the audio device into the water so we could also hear the whales. I know it was the season for seeing them, but there were an extraordinary amount that we saw and an experience that will be hard to top.
