Amazing experience. We couldn’t make it the scheduled day and your staff was kind enough to move our reservation to the next day. We are really grateful for that.

Captain Nate was awesome at tracking whales. Seas were a Cat III but the catamaran was very stable at sea. Ship was clean and crew was nice. Had a wonderful experience and would do it again! Highly recommend!
