I feel bad for writing this review but I think it is necessary to point out to the organization why I feel this way.
First of all I loved the crew on this boat. They were all so nice and explained a lot which was great. It was also noticeable how everyone of them had a lot of passion and loved what they were doing.
The reason why I gave it more of a bad rating is because a few years ago I went whale watching in Brier Island, it was absolutely beautiful and I still love looking at the pictures now. With this tour I just got disappointed. Maybe my expectations were set high I don‘t know but they just didn‘t get fulfilled at all.
One of the crew members had said that once we see a whale we will follow and try to get a good glimpse of him. We drove out with the boat and spied a whale who was alone. It was hard to predict where he/she would appear next, so it was hard to take pictures. After the whale had appeared for maybe 6 times I still didn‘t have a good picture of it. At this point I didn‘t worry to much about it thinking there will be another chance. The whale then didn‘t seem to come back up for a while. The boat started to move again so I thought we would go to another place where there might be some more whales, instead we went to see a salmon farm and a sardine fence. I do not want to try to sound rude but I paid to see whales. We saw one and we left him...Why?! Why didn‘t we stay with him longer?! In the end we returned back to the st. Andrews. If I would have an income I wouldn‘t even care to much for the $130 dollars I spend for 2 adult tickets but as a student it hurts even more to have lost this money.
