Awesome excursion to watch whales. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Short ride to find the whales. Once we arrived in the bay, we were able to observe whales surfacing!! Staff was able to tell us the different types for whales.

we saw several whales. The crew worked very hard to make our experience a memorable one.. We were able to get many pictures. It was evident that the driver really cared about the whales and followed all restrictions. Even had names for the whales.

Captain Nick and Matt were awesome ! They are funny and informative. Got us on some whales right away and answered any questions we had. Also gave us a great shot of the Mendenhall glacier on the way back to the harbor. Great Trip !
