Lovely captain and crew. Great and comfy boat too! Our 2 yr old girl enjoyed the trip as we saw 2 different species of whales and a few dolphins. Surprisingly, we didn't had to go too far off the coast to see the whales up close. Also thanks to the nice weather and forgiving sea conditions on our day of visit too. Awesome experience and would definitely recommend them!

My partner and I had a whale of a time on our tour in Augusta. The captain and crew went out of their way to make sure we had a great time. So helpful and friendly! The boat had plenty of room and clear views. We were lucky enough to see multiple groups of whales, including a calf. Truly magical. A big thank you. Will recommend to all.
