Best whale watching!


We did the deluxe sail and it did not disappoint! Reservations, check in, and meeting on the dock were clear and easy. The adventure itself was beyond excellent! We were well informed and so excited from the first sighting to the last. It was the most amazing, wonderful experience....plus they give you a little extra underwater surprise.

A great experience!
We took the Deluxe Whale Sail with lunch and beverages included. We were impressed by the all-female crew's knowledge, skill and enthusiasm for the marine mammals we saw. Even though we were "pre-season" for humpback whales by a week, we saw many humpbacks! A large playful pod of spinner dolphins and a few bottlenose dolphins too!
