Special Offer Tips

Whale Watching is more sensitive to weather conditions. It’s good to plan on doing it one day and leave another day as a backup in case a trip is cancelled.

With Whale Watching being as popular as it is, advanced reservations are recommended. Be sure to contact us directly to set up your reservations.

Just in case you’re wondering, the Whale Watch, Nature Cruise and Lighthouse Tour boats all have restrooms and snack bars on board for you comfort and convenience.

If you are planning to go Whale Watching, you will want to have warm clothing. Jacket, pants, sweatshirt etc. It is usually around 25 degrees cooler out on the water than at the dock.

Trying to squeeze two different trips into one day is difficult. We recommend only planning one per day.
