We had several whale watching experiences in other parts of the world and came off disappointed and could not decide if we should go on this one. A couple we knew invited us to join them on a private cruise but seats were all taken up by the time we decided to accept their invitation. When we arrived at ISP early in the morning, we decided to go with the 1st boat of the cruise ship tour. How lucky we were. Not only did we sight some 10 Ocar and killer whales, but they were putting up a show for us, breaching, dancing and singing away. They dive deep and came out of the water playfully. You would not except such grace fullness from such huge mammals. All these without human synchronization. Our friends who was out on the private tour was envious when they saw our photos later. They saw whales but no show. Just swimming around without any other activities. I can only say that when it comes to sighting wild life, it depends very much on luck and whether you pay private or cruise ship tours. I thus wish all of you going out to watches the same luck we had and all an enjoyable trip.
