Well worth the drive and entry fee, we saw several whales and their calves, we could’ve watched them for hours!

Great experience watching mothers and calves frolicking very nearby. $12 admission and so good. Went out on very expensive boat trip from Coral Bay but hardly saw one

Lots of whales. Mothers and calves, young males trying to impress everyone with their tail flapping, flipper waving and breaching. Great to see.

A must stop, just simply that. Cost is worth it and not much anyway. There was a gale force wind in effect when we got there and we managed to slip in during a break in the rain. Loved the views, even if we didn't...More

We purchased a seniors ticket during the calving season. When we returned a few weeks later, and the whales had left we were allowed to go and look for free! I think the tickets in calving season are for one day only.
