    Tour was amazing and so was our guide, Capt. Nick. We saw blue whales and some dolphins. It was very exciting to see marine wildlife in their natural habitat and learn more of the local marine life. The small boat was a plus , we were able to get to the whales faster and see the dolphins up close. Awesome experience!!!

    Incredible trip that was WELL beyond our expectations! Must do!
    Richard_K, Nov 2023
    Wow. Captain Nick was incredible. We knew we weren't taking this trip during the "prime" season.. but Nick and his tour were beyond anything we could've hoped for. The boat is incredibly comfortable - super smooth and super dry.. we saw TONS of dolphins surrounding the boat throughout the trip.. and we had multiple whale sightings! In addition, we saw the more standard larger boats out there with us but WAY farther away from the action.. this was super close, intimate, and Nick's knowledge and education gave us an incredibly rich experience! Must do, and will do this again soon with other friends!
    Amazing !!!

    Beyond Amazing!

    Don't even hesitate, book it! We had an amazing time, it was SOO worth the little bit extra to be in a smaller group with just a handful of people. Way less sea sickness, quicker to any animals and overall a great experience! The only people I would recommend is someone with very limited mobility. Captain Nick was the best and this has by far been a memory neither myself or my son will ever forget ❤️
    A whale of a trip!

    Nick is a great captain and his love for his job really shines through. He is super knowledgeable about the ocean wildlife you might see. On our tour, we got very lucky seeing three whales, including an amazing blue whale, a huge pod of common dolphins that swam all around the boat, and some lounging sea lions. It was an amazing trip.
    Very great it's was good...

    Captain Nick was great! My group had a blast. No whales but saw tons of bottle-nosed and common dolphins as well as an anchovie tornado, sea lions, and shear water birds. Would recommend to anyone. The smaller group setting was much more immersive.
    Something to do adventure

    Captain Nick was awesome & very educated on marine life. Nick told us up front what we would & wouldn't see do to the time of year. Boat was extremely comfortable, The ride alone made our day. Seen a variety of dolphin species & the weather was perfect. Wife & I had a blast & Definitely will go again
