Fantastic. Amazing experience for our family and friends. Orcas were so active and close to us. It is an unforgettable impression.
Outstanding. The crew was informative, professional, and very personable. We certainly will take this tour again.
Very informative and great experience. Did not see orcas but did follow three humpback whales at a distance. Boat was not crowded and service was superb. Highly recommend to others.
