    Great time out on the small boat seeing whales and other wildlife! Captain was friendly and did a fantastic job finding several whales. It was a very good choice over the typical cruise ship excursions!

    We had an amazing tour guide/captain. He is extremely accommodating and knowledgable about the area. The captain turned off the engine of the boat so that the whales were not disturbed. We waited patiently for a few minutes, then 6 - 7 humpback whales surfaced around our boat.
