Unfortunately it was not our day to see any whales, but we were able to see pods of dolphins. The staff was very nice and even went further out to see if we could find some whales.

Amazing trip! We saw three humpback whales, and got pretty close. Lots of pods of dolphins were to the left and right of the boat. New ship and pleasant crew! Lots of fun!
