I am a long time, serious whale watching fanatic. I am also a former on the water whale watch naturalist from Ca. Island Adventures is absolutely first rate. They consistently go the extra miles to get sightings. Recently we had already seen 3 Gray Whales when a report of Orca several miles away came in. We went for it and looked and looked. Finally right at the end of our reach for the trip we found them and had an unbelievable encounter with Killer Whales closely approaching the boat. Carl was so excited he sounded like a big kid. Capt Carl could have easily turned back and called it a successful trip. Instead, he pushed as far as he possibly could and it paid off big time. That dedication, and the enthusiasm of the entire crew who clearly do what they do because they love it have made Island Adventures my whale watching home. No need to look further. The naturalists do a presentation of photos taken on the trip while en route back to the harbor. All class. I definitely recommend Island Adventures.
