From the moment I arrived till when it was time to go the staff on board was more then accommodating and welcoming, they helped me with my 3 little kids as I’m a single father witch was very helpful and my 3 kids loved every minute they were there. The experience they had to offer was very exceptional

Rough going until first sighting. We followed a young whale for about an hour as well as frolicking pods of dolphin. Very exciting. Crew were great and very attentive and informative. I will do it again.

Despite the extremely rough conditions, this was a great trip.

Wayne the captain managed the boat well despite the extremely rough conditions. Professional, knowledgeable crew some of whom are in fact researchers.
