Three hour whale watch

The staff and crew were very knowledgeable and professional. It was a quick ride out to where the whales were located, so it didn't feel you were eating into your time to observe. I would definitely recommend the Pacific Whale Foundation over other companies, due to the funding going on research and it is a non for profit organisation. As it was late in the season, few whales were about so next year I will ensure to book earlier than October.

Fantastic Experience!

We loved the all female crew who were not only very funny but really knowledgeable about the whales and the area. Obviously a great time of year to go as we saw so many whales - mamas and their babies - all playing. Loved that the experience was with a conservation group. Would highly recommend to anyone.
