10 Whale Watches for one low price!
Every whale watch is unique; and the more time you spend on the water, the more chances you’ll get for that perfect whale breach photo or that friendly whale to come up to the boat and say “Hi”. We have seen dolphins riding the nose of whales, competitive pods of as many as 15 whales and calves that breach 10 times in a row. With 10 Whale Watch Adventures, what will you see? Your Whale Season pass will allow you on the water for 10 whale watches at one low price! Plus you get priority boarding for the seat of your choice!
