If you ever want to go whale watching these are the people to go with. The captain was the best telling us everything we needed to know about the whales. It took a little while to find them but thanks to the spotter on land we did and what a show they gave us. It was so good we stayed a little longer than we should have. The boat trip out and in was also fantastic. Thanks to all the staff running the place. You won't regret the trip.

Fabulous and friendly staff from the guy we discussed the tour with, just walking by on the boardwalk, to the lady in the office who was very helpful discussing winds and the best day to go, to the lady boatdriver who was friendly, informative and has a great taste in music. The one and a half tour was fantastic. The boat was really clean and comfortable with the choice of being in or outside. There was a toilet and washroom on board. It was a very relaxing and picturesque cruise up the river and canals. An added bonus towards the end was seeing a dolphin and her bub, who were happy to put on a bit of a show for us. Highly recommend this cruise and this company.

Very nice staff, modern boat and life jackets, we also saw some whales from the distance, but not from close and not breaching. They advertise with great pics, so you have false expectations, but in real you have to be very lucky to see some from close.

Even on an overcast afternoon with rain threatening and only 6 passengers the eco river cruise went ahead with the complete experience. Our friendly captain Natalie provided an informative commentary as well as chatting with passengers. The boat has a shallow draft so it can travel close to the shoreline and to oyster leases, providing a great view. Tea and coffee accompanied by sweet biscuits were available throughout the cruise. We would encourage anyone thinking of taking the cruise not to be put off by dull, overcast weather. We saw lots of cormorants, pelicans, herons, and birds of prey including a young sea eagle in its large nest of sticks.
