Our captains have over 20 years of experience with nature trips and offer excellent views of marine wildlife. All our trips are led by marine biologists, most with 10+ years experience, who fully narrate and answer questions during trips. Our whale watching trips are educationally oriented and our biologists collect valuable data on the marine mammals sighted during these trips, including distribution, relative abundance, and behavior of whales and dolphins. We also photo-identify individual whales and dolphins, contributing to assessments of population, residency patterns, and migration or movement patterns.


There are two seasons for whale watching:

1. Late spring, summer and fall (May 1 to December 16, 2005) for Humpback Whales, Blue Whales and Dolphins.

2. Winter and early spring (December 17, 2005 to April 30, 2006) for Gray Whales and Dolphins.
