Seeing the whales. Captain of boat was hard to understand when she used the microphone. I feel like I missed most of the info she shared about whale life.

Cortney, charity, captain Rd were great and put us on whales. Excellent trip. The boat was great and safe.
Amazing and unforgettable!

Captain Dan, Charity and Russell were great. We got to see so many whales, and our kids loved it - lots of oohs and ahhhs for sure. My son can’t stop talking about the whale breaching - what a treat! And not to forget - the drive over in Papa Bear’s den was fun and informative. Thank you for a great once in a lifetime experience. I had a hard time choosing who to book through as there are a lot of companies to sift through, and I chose this one based on reviews, price, small snack provision and boat description - and was not disappointed.
Sam, Dave and An Excellent Afternoon of Whale Watching
