This was the most fun day for all of us. We saw several whales - they swam right under us. The captain was wonderful. The ride was so much fun. Great value for the price! Highly recommended! We will do this again. Thanks Capt Gary.

We went out to see the whales and saw two - one gray was fairly close. Captain Gary was pleasant and knowledgeable. The boat was small but that made the trip more fun and personal - no loud speakers like on the bigger boats.

I have been on a few whale watching tours around the U.S. and this one definitely ranks among the best! Captain Gary is great; he is very knowledgeable and committed to finding you whales. The great thing about this tour is that they use small rubber boats; it may sound scary but it's not. You feel completely safe and so much closer to the whales. We found three whales and were able to watch them for a long time. We were so close, you could hear the whales breathing in before they went under (a sound I'd never heard before). In addition, we also saw a couple of seals, numerous sea birds, and the beautiful coastal scenery. This is a great experience for everyone visiting the coast!

We took a whale watching tour and it was more than amazing! It is something i would love to go and do again.. The tour leads you out of the bay and across the swells and into the ocean to follow whales and see how close they come to the boat.. We saw a few it was a month where most of the whales where going out further to hunt, so we saw the ones that were closer to the Pirates Cove! A view and experience you will never forget! definitely something i advise others to try !!
