A wonderful experience. A fast zodiac boat, an hour spent with a mom and young humpback whale. Tour guide was very informative and the captan a great driver. It was my tenth trip in the past 4 years with this company.

We went out once again for a great trip. We were able to see so many whales, we got just close enough to see so much. Their tales and spouting, and the maiming rituals of the males to fight for the female. Hector and his...More

I'll start off by saying that in '97 I worked in Alaska and one of my jobs was to talk about humpback whales. Well, I will admit that I learned some new things during this tour. The crew did a fantastic job of educating all...More

The trick is going when there is action to watch. The whales return to the bay starting in November so you may see some. Just like every tourist activity, there will be low and peak season cycles and corresponding prices... More
