Since 1980, the non-profit Pacific Whale Foundation has focused on studying and protecting whales, and marine life and the oceans more broadly, through research and educating the public. PWF's passion and expertise is on full display as certified marine naturalists explain the whales’ social behavior and, when possible, let you listen to whale songs through an underwater hydrophone.

Great time on the catamaran! Excellent crew-the whales were not breaching at a high rate-but the crew did an outstanding job of making it interesting and seeing as much as possible. The captain strategically moved around with great judgment and respect for the whales-we got to see a lot by the time we wrapped up.
