Kris and his wife were great to deal with while booking - we planned in advance and came from another province and they made it all very easy. Kris made sure we saw a whale, as well as being very knowledgable to these amazing creatures and the geography around us. Great trip!!

My girlfriend Jodie who arranged the trip with Sea of Whales was told by other operators that she was "daft" if she thought that we were going to see whales at this time of year. When she contacted Kris, he said this is a good day to go out. He was right. It was an amazing day. We saw numerous... More

Great time on the water. Very informative and we saw what we went out to see. The jelly fish were an added bonus for sure! Nice with only 7 of us on board!

Kris and his team are wonderful! All-around excellent experience from booking through completing the tour. We got lucky and booked the day before for an evening whale watch the next day (our preferred choice was already booked up so reserve early). Upon arrival 15 min. before getting on the boat, Kris and Corey got me and my family (including 8... More

I had thought about doing a whale watching tour, but never did get around to it until now. I had planned a trip to the area for the family and this tour really caught my eye. The web site looked well organized and the pics looked great. I was very anxious about going for a few reasons, I will tell... More

We were lucky enough to find Sea of Whales and Kris while researching whale watching tours in the Trinity area. It is evident that Kris loves his job and is great at it. He was able to spot whales far way and provide us, amateur whale-watchers with ample time to get a good view and great photos. Kris is knowledgeable... More

We've done a few whale watching trips and this one was the best. Not only were there whales everywhere, but Kris was great - as the other reviews say, he knows what he's doing and what he's talking about - and an entertainer to boot. Never mind the fantastic cookies, hot chocolate and coffee on board. Not hesitations in recommended... More

We had a wonderful family evening of whale watching with over 10 family members aged 8 to 70! Fun was had by all and many said this was the highlight of their NL vacation. Kris is knowledgable and very pleasant. We saw a humpback breaching multiple times. The boat is a zodiac which is very comfortable riding the waves and... More
