Overview
Plush cushions, a second-story sundeck, and a gourmet lunch (cocktail included) set this Marietas Islands whale watching tour apart from similar excursions. After your cruise—and hopefully a whale, dolphin, or sea turtle sighting—stop to snorkel, kayak, paddleboard, or ride a float on the water—your guides will swim soft drinks or cocktails from the open bar out to you.

Our family of 18 (11kids) had so much fun on this excursion. Asking kids on a scale of 1 to 10 and they gave it a 26! It truly was their highlight...swimming, snorkeling, slide, hammocks, seeing whales, food, snacks, drinks and most of all the staff! This is so well run!
