Even though it was chilly, we had a great time whale watching. Saw the elusive Fin Whale! So exciting. Really enjoyed all of the information from the crew.

We had a great time (family with two kids age 10 and 12). The crew and staff were excellent -friendly and knowledgeable. The volunteers had great marine life knowledge and shared info. We saw a couple of whales and some dolphins. Had a great time.
