Jason, Brendan and "New Guy" Sam were all wonderful. Saw many whales...several very close to the boat! Even got to see a breach! Jason was good about getting the most sightings as possible and moved us to several locations to accommodate for that. Highly recommend this tour!

Jason, Sam and Brendan were hilarious and made the trip as amazing as it was. It didn't hurt that we saw dozens of whales really up close too. We even saw one whale breach which is pretty rare from what we heard. For sure for sure I'd go on a tour with these guys.

Also, saw two glaciers on the way to see whales. Saw a number of whales, sea lions, and a bald eagle! You are out on the water for almost two... More

Sun was shining and the waves were crashing. We got to see multiple whales, bald eagles, seal lions, and porpoises! Jacob was amazingly fun and knowledgeable. Captain Brent lead us to these great views. And yummy snacks were provided!
