They may not guarantee that you will see whales or dolphins only that you will have a good time. Having said that, within 20 minutes we were surrounded by hundreds of dolphins and a couple of sperm whales. The photo op was definitely worth the...More

The tour departs within walking distance of the cruise port. A very boring 3 1/2 hour tour. No bites despite 7 lines out. The highlight of the trip were 3 dolphins swimming by the boat.

I first toured with Captain Mike back in 1979—these guys are friendly, fun and know their stuff! I'm happy to support this local family business, just minutes away from ocean paradise. An authentic experience, I can't wait to go back!

Hi There. We are very sorry that you were not lucky enough to encounter any of our wonderful marine mammals on your recent trip. Our sighting success is over 90% but there is never any guarantee. We love that our resident whales and dolphins are...More

Hi There Thanks for getting in touch. The tour varies depending on where we have been seeing the dolphins and whales recently, but we almost always go within sight of the pitons. Hope this helps. Kim
