Beyond my expectations!

What an incredible experience from staff, to guide, ease, and comfort! And the perfect finale was a humpback whale in full breach caught on Camera by a passionate photographer on board. Very emotional experience. Laura was a wonderful guide. Reached out to all of us together, and independently. As did Captain Chris whilst Shawnee kept providing updates.

The trip was professional and spectacular all in one.

The guides, Val, shanna, John snd then Captain Bill - we’re knowledgeable, informative and entertaining. My husband, son and I had a great time. We saw a lot of Orcas, seals and Ollie the otter. I’m glad our trip was cancelled the day before when it was windy. Our day was memorable.

Great crew, very helpful (on board with a small child) and there was a lot of information about the animals, even if we unfortunately did not see whales, but sea lions, seals, bald eagles and a sea otter.
