Customer Comments

On a Searcher Natural History Tour, wildlife plays the starring role!

Whales and wildlife are the focus, though Searcher naturalists and crew can enhance your experience.

However many guests appreciate our excellent customer service and safe and friendly atmosphere.


I have NEVER seen people work so hard, so efficiently, so continually and so cheerfully, with safety and service always and foremost in their minds. You are all greatly appreciated.

I waited many years to make this trip and it exceeded all my expectations. To be immersed in marine wildlife is a gift. The Searcher crew are the best I've ever experienced.

—Kathy Russi, USA, February, 2013

Again Team Searcher really delivered and looked after us, from your friendly and efficient on-shore organisation, the crew's hard work, always with a smile, Paul and Marc's knowledge, to Art whose customer care skills combined with his love and enthusiasm for Baja after so many trips never ceases to amaze me.

—Anne Puffett, UK, February, 2013

Brenda and I truly had a wonderful experience. I still marvel at all we saw. Some of my special moments include sitting on the bridge with Paul and Marc and admiring the cloud formations we saw. Paul and Marc really helped to make the trip special. And Art helped us feel and safe and comfortable throughout.

—Leo and Brenda Winternitz, USA, February, 2013

I just wanted to thank you and all the crew for the most amazing trip, from hummingbirds to blue whales, sand dollars and moments with sea lions. One of the pleasures was everybody's clear delight in all the wildlife which went beyond just being a "job" and to the seamless, smooth organisation that went into our day-to-day activities, not to mention the very obvious care from Art to keep us safe! Thank you so much, it was an honour to be allowed such close contact with all the wildlife.
