A great day on the water!
Jeffrey_R
, Oct 2021
What a wonderful day! Our whale watching tour was with Bill, Joe, Valerie and Shawny in the catamaran. They were all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We had a calm day on the water and saw at least 8 humpback whales. There were not many people on the tour (24) so we had plenty of room to move about the deck and spacing was optimal inside the cabin. The only thing that could have made it better was more sunshine and seeing orcas, but they have no control over that! Thank you all for a great experience!

It was a beautiful October day on the Sea. Nice to see the wild life. Very informative crew. Although a beautiful day it still was October, so best to bring layers.

Magnificent experience

Excellent trip, definitely worth the money. We saw loads of humpback whales and got tons of information from the very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide Seanie. Tip: don‘t take pictures yourself, just enjoy seeing and hearing the whales and maybe make some videos. The crew takes very good quality pictures, which you get for free afterwards. They also photograph you or your family if you ask for it.
