Clean and well maintained boat. We did not see whales unfortunately but nature cannot be controlled. Very relaxing and beautiful. Recommendation to bring a jacket, it gets really windy further into the ocean. We will do it again, if we return back one day.

It was daughters’ first time seeing the ocean and I am so glad a decided to take them whale watching! I’ve never seen them so happy! It was def the drive from Arizona! Would definitely recommend to anyone going to Newport!

Beautiful experience. It is hard to explain the feel when you see the biggest mammal in the world. You see only 10% of it but still it is the biggest live animal you will ever see.

The captain was really nice kept behind the whale for a while till everyone got to see the whale, he gave out lot of info on the Dolphins also..

Punctual, Knowledgeable, and friendly Captain Taylor. He made sure we saw a lot of wildlife . Epic!!!
