WHERE TO GO:

WHAT TO BRING:

  1. WARM CLOTHING LAYERS!!!
    • Sorry about the dramatic formatting but it's very important to bring multiple layers as the temperature on board can range from 45°F-80°F (7°C-26°C)
  2. Water resistant outer layer
    • Not always needed, but highly recommended
  3. Reusable liquid container for free water and coffee on board.
  4. Sunscreen
  5. Hat
  6. Sunglasses
  7. Camera or Binoculars (optional)

WHAT ELSE:

A few more important notes, given the unpredictable nature of nature:

  1. Be prepared for the possibility of seasickness. (Fairly uncommon ~12% of people)
    • Over the counter medications can help prevent seasickness, consider something like Dramamine: Original Formula (we've found Non-Drowsy versions to be less effective).
  2. Be prepared for the possibility of no whale sightings. (Extremely uncommon <1% of trips)
    • Whale feeding locations can change on a yearly, and sometimes, monthly basis.
    • For these reasons, we don't have a whale sightings guarantee on these trips.
  3. Be prepared for the possibility of hazardous weather conditions cancelling our trip. (~15% of trips)
    • Plan alternative activities in the area in case of cancellation.
    • Fortunately, we offer refunds in this situation, unlike many other operators.
    • We will give advance notice if your trip will be cancelled, via email and text.
