Where your Money Goes

Pacific Whale Foundation is a nonprofit organization. More than 30 years ago, our researchers began to offer educational whalewatches to the public during the weekends, following their days of studying whales at sea. These cruises offered us the opportunity to raise needed funds for our research work and educate the public about whales.

That same tradition continues today. Our cruise operation is 100% owned by the nonprofit Pacific Whale Foundation. All of the profits that we generate go to supporting Pacific Whale Foundation's work to protect our oceans through science and advocacy.

Pacific Whale Foundation publishes detailed financial information in our 990 Forms and in our reviewed annual reports.
