What People are Saying

We were able to take a whale watching tour on the first day of the season and it was OUTSTANDING! My expectations were pretty low and figured we wouldn’t see any whales but instead, we saw about a dozen in the open water and even got to see them fluke several times for a deep dive. Incredible! - Maria Healey
I went on a dining cruise on Saturday Night with my husband, and it was a really awesome experience, the food was very delicious. I had the Salmon and my husband had the chicken, and we both had the cheese cake. The waiter and waitress were really nice and professional, also the host was always playing good music, and would also play what other people requested. Me and my husband had a very fun experience and we love it - Omicamy Myers
