For passenger comfort, we are committed to not running at 100% capacity for the 2022 season. Our tours are more comfortable, less crowded, more informative then anyone else. Plus, if you don’t see whales between June-September you can join us for a free trip. That’s the Deer Harbor Charters difference.
