Average Product Rating: 4.7 / 5
We loved it! Even though the weather wasn't optimal, our captain got us to the area where whales were coming up, then cut the engine so we could drift safely while the whales put on an amazing show quite near the boat! They lowered a microphone into the water so we could hear the whale songs. It was all wonderful.
Pleasant adventure. The kids loved it, well at least the two who did not get seasick. The whale sightings were great, the crew was helpful and knowledgeable, and the craft is very nice. Thank you for the ginger ale and ginger pill; he is much better now.
We went out with Trilogy last Thursday, Jan. 7th 2016 and had a picture perfect whale watch with many sightings of whales and also a pod of dolphins. With all the other companies out there to go whale watching, Trilogy is my 1st choice and my 1st recommendations to any visitors who I talk to. Our boat had lots of room to move around the the food and drinks were delicious...
Mahalo to the Captain and crew!
Trilogy tours whale watch was an amazing experience! The crew was professional, fun, and informative. We saw so many whales, which made for breathtaking, bucket list experience. The catamaran was a nice size, with a fairly small group, which made it very intimate. I would definitely recommend trilogy tours, amd would take this tour again! Thank you
Glad I did it once but I wouldn't do it again. The whales weren't as visible as I hoped for. The crew was very nice & friendly though.
Loved the tour. It was great fun. Will recommend to anyone looking for a whale adventure. Great crew.
The whale watching was incredible the crew were first rate and found us a small pod of whales. The crew provided drinks, food and information during the cruise. This was a smaller group of people on the Trilogy boat so you had plenty of space to move around and watch and take photos of the whales.
The skipper Martin was an excellent host and skilled at finding the whales. He also invited our 10 year old son up to drive the boat and spent a lot of time explaining how to navigate.
This is the best whale watching company to book your trip with.
Cannot say enough about Martin and his crew.
