We had a great time with Nick! Saw pods and pods of dolphins and 2 hump back whales.

We liked the smaller boat feel as it was more intimate (6 people) experience than the larger vessels.

Nick gave us the scoop on everything we were seeing and was caring when he saw me turn a bit green (take Dramamine!) while the waves caused a bit of motion sickness. Lol.

Definitely recommend his services!

Absolutely the best option if you are looking to go Whale/Dolphin watching.  Captain Nick is the man!  He is super knowledgeable and really makes the time out on the water enjoyable.  My girlfriend and I have been 2 times now and we will definitely be going a lot more!  Perfect option for family’s looking to have a more intimate experience.  I really recommend doing the sunset excursion. Seeing the sunset from the water is magical!

I have never been whale watching, because in all honesty getting on a big boat crowded with people pushing and shoving to get a spot doesn’t peak my interest, so I’ve put off the idea until I came across East Meets West Excursion. A smaller boat that offers a more exclusive tour than all the others, not to mention the speed and comfort this type of boat provides. we went out at 9am and left those big tour boats in the dust as Captain Nick searched for Whales and Dolphins.

I was continually amazed at his skills for spotting all this sea life in such a large ocean!  He has an eye for spotting life in such a vast ocean- from hundreds of dolphins putting on a show, feeding with birds and sea lions, and the knowledge that those surroundings are where we would spot humpback whales!! I can’t believe what all we saw, truly amazing!

I highly recommend this tour, the boats amazingly fast, comfortable smooth ride with a skilled Captain that makes you feel so welcome, with such great knowledge of the sea and the creatures who habitat it! Check em out you won’t be disappointed, my boyfriend and I can wait to get back out!
