Best whale watching in Albany. With the largest and fastest charter vessel operating in the area we can get you to the whales with speed and comfort so you spend more time with the whales not traveling. Sit back in our spacious cabins club lounges, with your friends and family, enjoy quality refreshments. Get those memories that will last a life time. Your enjoyment is paramount to me. Hope to see you soon Paul Guest Master of the vessel "Silver Star II"

Amanda, Thank you for taking the time to review our operation. One of the things that makes my job a joy is the reaction we get from our passengers. Never quite think I've done my job until I have found a whale. Regards Paul

What a great way to see the whales. Since the last whaling station closed in 1978, whales have been returning to Albany. We saw a group of several Southern Right Whales frolicking in the water near the Historic Whaling Station. My only complaint about this...More
