Thank you thank you thank you. We have never been on a whale watching excursion! I really appreciated the fact you taught us about whales the environment in which they live and made it interactive. You guys do a fantastic job.

The crew, boat, ticketing agent were all great. There was much information given, although at times difficult to hear the speaker system sitting in the stern of the boat. We saw many whales which was amazing!! The only problem we had was with passengers who...More
