  • Still kind of amazed at what a great experience it was to go out with Trilogy. We did the 1:30 whale watch and saw at least 6 different humpback whales during the trip, and the service was amazing!

  • I can't say enough about our Trilogy whale watch. Our crew, Captain Aaron, Chandler, and Kim certainly were very knowledgeable about whales and knew where to look for them. Highly recommend this company!
