So worth it! It was a fun yet relaxing experience, the zodiac boat was comfortable, for 6 people (7 including Captain Nate). We saw a gray whale and later “played” with the dolphins. Our girls loved the experience and can’t wait to do it again in Summer!

Great trip on 1/3. No whales but LOTs of dolphin and a small shark! Capt Nate is a cool guy - explained what to look for and what we might see. The boat is awesome. Its nice to go out with a small group and being low in the water we were able to get an amazingly close view of the dolphin as they rode the bow wave - very cool experience! Would definitely recommend this tour

Great whale watching experience. Small zodiac style boat got us up close. Three whales swam around and under our boat for more than 15 minutes. Close enough to get sprayed by the whale spout at one point. Our guide Nate was excellent. The tour far exceeded my expectations.

We had an incredible experience with Nate during the past Thanksgiving weekend ! We had great weather and we saw two pods of dolphins. One more closer to the coast, the other much further out! Dolphins were playful! What a very fun experience ! Thank you Nate 😊🐬 can’t wait to come back to see more dolphins and maybe whales !?
