factors influence a successful whale watching and wildlife
excursion, while no one can guarantee weather or wildlife, we do
take several measures to increase our odds of success, in fact our
success rate has ranged between 95 and 100% during our last 17

From St. Andrews these factors provide us an unmatched level of
success, especially in the viewing of humpbacks. We realize the
significant investment our guests make and the reason they do so. As
