Great Trip. Very informative friendly staff, saw 4 whales. We had to travel further to find them because of very calm conditions.

Thank you for a great experience. Followed 4 whales around for an hour on a day where it would have been difficult to find them. We got some great pics and videos. The guide and captain were lovely people and taught us some cool facts about the whales habits and characters Very happy. Will be coming again on a sunny day.
