Welcome to the Sunbeam Blue Whales with(Life Jacket,Buoy tube,coxswain License Boat Riders,life Gard service This is the full experience out with the whales, the most comfortable boat with the best viewing, a 3 hour cruise to spend the maximum amount of time with the whales, with all the facilities. We regularly see large pods of dolphins and, in the migration season, blue whales can be found just a few miles offshore

If you have never seen whales, you should do so at least once. It can be an amazing experience. Seeing whales is exhilarating. You don't see them for long--they come to the surface for air and go under water again. It's hard to get close,...More
