i know the cost is about double the cost of the huge boats but it's also far less than some of the other people i was contacting about boats this season. it's also at LEAST twice as amazing as a big boat whale watch company and the trip is longer!
also very important things to consider: the money stays local in the community and helps keep a fishing boat from fishing for a trip.
100% of the price covers the costs of the boat that we charter - ie, fuel and travel. i don't make ANY money - in fact i LOSE money on each trip. this is about the WHALES and trying to show people the amazing beauty of these fantastic animals. Greater awareness = greater success in saving them and growing their populations.
we work with a GREAT captain who is completely certified and terrific to work with. he gets what we're doing.
another good bit to all this? KIDS can come! and by kids i mean kids, not toddlers, 8 years or older. expect 5 hour trips, depending on whales and weather. should be amazing. there is a restroom on board!
i'll provide the vegan drinks and foods! if there's something special you want to bring, feel free, just make sure it's vegan!
sunscreen, sunglasses, binoculars, hats, extra clothes in case you get cold or wet are all highly suggested.
please, if you had a great time, tip Captain Mike!
