Wonderful

The crew was entertaining and informative about what was in store for us. There was a coffee and snack area below us. We saw lots of whales, including 5 in a group! Trust Captain John to give you a great experience.

Amazing

My fiance and I had the best time! Their naturalist, Sabrina, was incredibly resourceful and came around at these end to see if we'd had any questions. I would highly recommend Captain John's whale watching!

Excellent

The whale watch was great! It was fun to see them breach and swim alongside the boat. Professional crew and great narration. Plenty of parking, restaurants, and shops nearby. Food is available for purchase onboard.

Wow!

What an absolutely amazing trip! Exceeded all expectations. Assumed we'd see a few whales if we were lucky, but we literally saw hundreds. Saw a mom with her calf doing a flipper dance and jump out the water at the end!
