It was a nice relaxing boat ride and they guarantee that either you’ll see a whale or else they will give you another tour at no cost. The crew was friendly and offered a selection of drinks along the way. We really enjoyed it and definitely recommend this fun experience for the whole family!!!!!

We actually didn't see any whales in our trip, but that's just how it goes sometimes. They gave us a credit to ride again another day or that could apply to a different activity. It was still a great experience and the crew / captains were awesome. Would recommend to anyone.

We went out for a second time for free as we didn't see any whales on the first trip and it didn't disappoint! We were able to see several whales which was amazing unfortunately none of them wanted to put on too much of a show and fully breach but still fantastic anyway. The staff were super welcoming and friendly and very knowledgeable too. Thanks Kia, Lisa and Don you made it a great afternoon for us! Mahalo
