Enjoy a Private Whale Watching and Sightseeing Tour you're sure to remember.
Unlike typical whale watching where you are looking down on whales from the deck of a huge boat, you will be moving with the whales at sea level.
Your navy seal style boat travels 5 times faster than typical large whale watching boats which enable you to journey 1-3 miles offshore for the best chance of seeing blue, gray, humpback and killer whales, sunfish, porpoises and other sea life.

"Russell was absolutely incredible! We had the experience of a lifetime. The boat was top of the line. We could not have asked for a better skipper and blue whale "whisperer." If you are looking for someone who not only understands the biggest mammal on earth but also, respects the blue whales and the ocean, Russell is your man. He will give you an intimate experience with the big blue! We were fortunate enough to see 6 different blues on our trip. 2 deep dives with tail fins and some 300 common dolphin! A trip we'll never forget! We'll be back Russell!!! "
"We had a great time. The day was fun and the captain was very knowledgeable and helpful to make the excursion our own."
