We made a last minute decision to go whale watching and were lucky enough to grab a seat with Chris' team. I am a big review reader and based on reviews we chose Chris. The tour did not disappoint and lived up to all the reviews and more! We lost count of all the whales we saw. If you want a great experience, use this company. Family owned and operated and some of the nicest and most knowledgeable people you will find. Also, talk to Pete if he's on board. What a great guy that is full of good information and such a pleasant human. Families, couples, and all aboard enjoyed it.


The crew were so kind and knowledgeable! They got us to the right place to give our whole group, ages 15 to 71, the have an amazing experience. I appreciate they were able to make accommodations for my father who gets around with a walker...he had a great time! Bring a jacket and maybe some gloves for when the weather kicks up and you will love every minute!

Awesome adventure for the family. We saw whales, sea lions, otters and dolphin. Captain takes his time to provide interesting information about wildlife

We reserved our whale watching tour last minute and chose Chris' Whale Watching because of the promise of a smaller boat and more personal experience compared to the larger companies and we were not disappointed! We got up close to quite a few whales, stayed quite a while, and got an amazing experience. The staff was knowledgeable and informative without being in your face. Even the captain was wowed by what we got to see that day. Everyone on the trip had a great time, kids through older adults. Highlight of our trip. We would go back in a heartbeat.
