We had a wonderful time and saw several whales. At one point we stopped and watched a mom and baby for at least 30 to 40 minutes! Great crew on the boat too!!

The crew, the boat, the local staff, the food were all great! The whales were somewhat cooperative until just as we were heading back in when a Mom and Calf put on a great show. What a great day!

We booked this trip last minute and couldn't haven't been more pleased. The check in process was simple, the ship was clean and comfortable, and the crew was knowledgeable and friendly. The ride was smoother than we expected given the high winds and we saw at least two dozen whales. The guide's narration was educational and very helpful. Highly recommended and a great value - we plan on doing this again next season and will go with the same company - this time we'll bring our kids..

Conner who was the narrator on the voyage was very knowledgeable about the habits of the humpback whales. He also had a keen eye for spotting the whales as they surfaced. Got some great pics of the whales breaching out of the water. Everyone of the crew was very nice and accommodating.

Just because you are the "savior of the whales" does not mean you can sit on your laurels. This was the fourth (1 with PacWhale and 3 others) and worst whale watching trip I have gone on. Trilogy was better. Ultimate was better. We sat at one spot for 2 hours watching horny male whales try to interest a female. Little or no tail slapping, breaching or other actions that I saw on every other trip. The "expert" kept saying the same things since that was all he saw. Are you trying to save on gas? There are so many people on the boat that you can hardly get a clear picture. Maybe you need new leadership? In its current iteration, I don't recommend it!
