Check the best time of the year to sightseeing

It was the very last day of the season, We got to see 3 Whales after a long wait, I guess be better to check the time before you spend your morning without luck, the people aboard were good, very attentive, just the peak of the season was two months ago lol!

We appreciate that you came out with us on a late season whale watch and at least were able to see 3 humpback whales. We'll hope you are able to come out with us again during the prime months or January-March, so you can really experience the wonder of the amazing giants of the sea.

The tour was hosted by Pacific Whale Foundation and was filled with great information regarding the migration of humpback whales. My partner learned about the whales, saw them in the water, and enjoyed the rare treat of listening to a live whale song via a waterproof microphone provided by the crew. Overall a great experience and great mai tais (the bar and snacks was also a good touch)!

Great Tour!!! We went out on this Whale watching Tour on April 24th on the Morning Tour . We were told that we possibly may not see any Whales because Most had left for Alaska. We were pleasantly rewarded with 2 Mothers and their Calves. One Calf even Breaches. The Tour was Worth it and The Morning Tour was Pleasant...it was not too Hot on the Water.

This was terrible and not worth. I don't recommend anyone. We did not have any proper whale watching and it was waste of my money.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2021
We appreciate you coming out with us, but are sorry to hear that you were so disappointed in your experience. Although it is late in the season, we've had some amazing whale watches recently. It is wildlife and each tour is unique obviously, but we always want all of our customers to feel they received fair value. Please feel free to reach out to me directly at johngaskins@pacwhale.com so that I can address your poor experience.
