    As good as advertised, the whale watch was very informative, staff very friendly and although it can not be a guarantee, the whales were in great numbers. Loved the tour.



    Becky Wallace
    This was a great tour. If you want a smaller boat, with real whale studies going on, and low to the water, this is it. The best part, you get high quality photos from the PWF! Emailed right to you, so you can sit back and enjoy the tour without having to try and capture your trip on your own. Lots of time to talk and ask questions and the crew was great.
