Our guide, Lika, was very friendly and made our tour interesting with lots of details about the places we visited. She greeted us with a morning pastry sample from a local bakery as we waited for our group to assemble. We proceeded to visit 4 restaurants, each unique and lively, and ready for us. The food samples included drinks of our choice (wine and beer). We sampled fish tacos, meatloaf with mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy, curried potatoes, and lobster ravioli. Our last stop was an ice cream store featuring its original "Bees' Knees" flavor. There we were even treated to a tour of their production room! Everything was delicious!! I appreciated how Lika did not rush us and we had time to enjoy our food and drinks as well as getting to know our other tour members. It was a wonderful afternoon filled with discovery.

Our sunset whale watching tour was amazing! Captain Joey and naturalist Andrew were amazing telling us everything about sea life and always keeping us safe. We saw around 10-13 humpback whales, many sea lions, otters, jellyfish, and plenty of birds. At the end of the tour when returning to the pier we were able to watch a beautiful sunset. Don’t forget to bring your jacket because it can get cold and if you are struggling to find parking in the fisherman’s parking just go to the parking garage in front called “Downtown East Parking”.

Discovery whale watching is a fantastic experience. Andrew the naturalist was so informative and really entertaining. We saw a humpback whale mother and baby- awesome, and Rissos dolphins along with sea lions and otters . Our guide even sang an old English sea shanty. Very very talented! Highly recommend this company.

It was an absolute highlight for our family! We saw humpback whales and even a blue whale. We booked the sunset tour. At the end we were very cold, even though we had jackets and hats with us. So you should wear enough warm clothes/take them with you. The tour will remain unforgettable for us. Highly Recommended.

Highly recommended. Saw orcas and a humpback whale, but that must have been a bit of luck
