Would recommend 7 Seas highly. The crew was very helpful with my grandson who was apprehensive about getting too close to the railing. They were very knowledgeable and gracious.

I will start out by saying I was on the fence due to the cost for bringing a group; but I was glad we went. First of all, they offered a senior discount for my mom and a military discount, which is never expected but...More

Saw 4 whales numerous times. The naturalist was informative and explained how he knew the whales that fed in that area. Watched whales for at least an hour-an hour and a half. It was awesome for all.

I notice some people get seasick on these tours. Is there anything we can do ahead of time to prevent this? Is there stuff on the boat to ease the misery or does it end up being a couple hours of torment? Thanks

I can share my experience: I had no pills but I made a stupid mistake: I ate. My lunch ended up quite shortly in a plastic bag that the boat crew was ready to give me. After that I was fine.
