This was an awesome trip, So glad we did it! Carrie Newell was extremely knowledgeable about the whales and behavior. Make no mistake though she is about safety first, if the sea is too rough the trip will be canceled. This is a good thing as the craft is a small Zodiac and if the sea is too rough you could wind up going for a swim. So call the morning of your trip to make sure they are going to be able to leave the harbor. And prepare for some of the best fun of your life.

Absolutely amazing. Saw whales early in the tour but it would have been worth the money just for the ride.

Purchased this for my mom and she loved it. She said the guide was wonderful and she was also given two gorgeous whale photos with the package. Highly recommended.

This trip was amazing. Your in a little boat close to the water and it can be a wild ride.

The water is no joke! Wear lots of rain gear just in case. It does get cold so bundle up. And it can be rocky so don't eat beforehand, I felt lucky I didn't get sick but others weren't so lucky. The whales were beautiful and the guides were friendly! Will go again!

From Our Editors

As a kid, marine biologist and gray-whale researcher Carrie Newell dreamed of working on Jacques Cousteau's team. In 2004, that dream approached reality when Jean-Michel Cousteau, Jacques's son, asked Carrie to contribute her groundbreaking research to The Gray Whale Obstacle Course, an episode in the first season of his PBS series. Carrie and her team of guides share their passion and knowledge for gray whales on daily, year-round trips through Whale Research EcoExcursions. After an educational talk, guides invite up to six guests to board a six-person ex-Coast Guard Zodiac and venture into waters where gray whales swim during summer feasts and winter migrations. They also teach patrons about marine life through the Whale, Sea Life & Shark Museum, which they stock with an extensive collection of shark, seabird, sea-lion, seal, and gray-whale artifacts.
