We enjoyed our whale watching tour with Dolphin! We saw lots of wildlife, including orcas. The crew was friendly, accommodating, and well-prepared. The bus transfer from the tram parking lot was efficient.

We booked a private whale watching trip for 13 family members. It was great! The crew went out of their way to make sure everything went smoothly. They were exceptional with the kids in our group. Would highly recommend.
