Our Mission

The ultimate mission of The Spout is to put people in the position to have amazing encounters with whales in the hopes of helping them to create a strong bond with these magnificent animals.

Our Methods

The Spout has taken a more hands on approach to putting people in position to encounter whales through sponsored expeditions and workshops, while sharing encounters in the form of video and photography.

It's about the love

We stay away from the gloom and doom here. The Spout is focused on the love, excitement, wonder, and every other emotion that comes into play when experiencing these animals.

Community Building

The Spout focuses on whales but it’s really about people. We want to continue to bring folks from every walk of life together in appreciation of these animals and hope they will share the love in their own community.
