    Linda Quinby
    Great trip! Lots of whales, and the naturalist onboard was great at describing and explaining the whale behaviors we observed -- everything from breaching to bubble trails. We'll probably do it again on another trip.



    Salvina Naccarato
    Lots of fun. Saw lots of Whales. Crew was very knowledgeable and passionate. Great catamaran and we got to sail too since the winds agreed!



    Jeanette Abbott
    The staff at the whale foundation were and are amazing! The trip itself was beyond phenomenal. We will definitely be booking through the whale foundation for trips in the future! We couldn't ask for a better experience!



    John Crum
    The Pacific Whale Foundation Whale Watch Sale was the highlight of our vacation. Absolutely Freaking Outstanding Experience! The crew did an excellent job informing us about whales and guiding us to the whales. We were "mugged" by a pair of whales TWICE!



    Francine Chick
    I had a fabulous time with PWF! They are always so good and it was fun on the new sail boat. Staff is great and they didn't disappoint in finding us whales to watch up close. Love them!
