These are genuinely nice people who do a fine job. The whales may or may not show, in our case we saw a couple of white beaked dolphins but we had some expensive fun on a nice boat that had indoor and outdoor seating, got...More
A drizzly day in April but the warm waterproof flotation suits kept us toasty. So did the excitement of seeing a Minkie whale twice and the star performer a giant Humpback in a feedind display just yards from the boat. Watched for a couple of...More
Cold even at this time of year but overalls are provided to keep you warm when out on the top viewing decks. Great guide on the lookout for whales talks throughout the trip from the top deck giving some interesting facts along the way.
