"awesome crew with pacific Whale Foundation"
January, 2015
We had a great time with the crew and got to see and hear a lot of whales. My favorite part was listening to the underwater microphone. The squeaks and noises from the ocean were amazing to hear from the boat.

What a great trip! The boat is beautiful, quiet, roomy. They served us juice and water and there were snacks and other beverages for sale. Our guide was extremely spunky, knowledgeable, and very interesting. We were lucky to see many whales, and they even dropped a mic into the waters so we could here the whalesong---a highlight for us. Great!
