“Thank you so much for everything! It was all perfect!”


“For us, a private charter with the Pacific Whale Foundation was the perfect venue for a wedding ceremony… We really wanted the venue to be creative, different, unique and above all, private… We found the privacy of being on the boat with only our guests made it very comfortable and we were so excited to give our guests some of the their fondest memories ever.”


“The fact that we used Pacific Whale Foundation gave us a great feeling knowing that we were doing our part to help support the Foundation’s efforts and research. We can’t say enough good things about the Captain and Crew, they were so perfect! They were knowledgeable, friendly, patient and full of Aloha spirit. They were so much fun with all of us.


Pacific Whale Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 1980 to protect a declining humpback whale population from global threats, including commercial whaling. Early pioneers in noninvasive whale research, our scientists began offering educational whalewatches on the weekends, after studying whales and their ocean environment during the week. The trips were a means to share our findings, educate the public about whales, and raise needed funds for our research and conservation work.

That same tradition continues today. Our PacWhale cruise operation is 100% owned by the non-profit Pacific Whale Foundation, as are our retail Ocean Stores. All of the profits that we generate go to supporting Pacific Whale Foundation’s work to protect our oceans through science and advocacy.

Your ticket to adventure on a PacWhale cruise directly funds  Research, Education and Conservation programs on behalf of marine wildlife and their ocean home.
