This was a nearly 4-hour trip mainly looking for jumping whales. We saw 14 whales, and had lots of informative conversations with the friendly crew. It was a very special experience.

Had a fabulous time with Teague Tours on a 4 day return trip to Fowlers Bay to see the whales on EPCruises. Saw the calves jumping. Also got to go to Head of Bight and saw 20 whales. Jeff is the ultimate host.
