Unfortunately we were not able to see Whales and the guide told us that there was just one boat going out to see whales (so they searched that for us) but this boat was full already (i think was the same company I contacted some days before). Despite this, the company organizing this tour was very good. They contacted us due to changes they wanted to make, but it was ok for them if we didnt want them (we changed the day due to weather, so it worked for us) The trip was very nice Denver and (I dont remember her name) the german translator were very nice people and learnt a lot from the country and the people. They were very patient and we didnt feel under stress as we did in another day tour with another company. We could totally recommend the tour, the company and the guides are very professional and nice. To see the whale is a mather of nature, or being lucky :)
We did the tour in late October. Actually, this should take two hours. At first we didn't see any whales, so the crew cruised in the bay for a while until we were lucky. The encounter was very close, intense and fantastic. We also had a little rough sea. Unfortunately, some fellow travelers became seasick and vomited. The crew had that well under control. Everyone was well looked after.
Very professional outfit with a passionate crew. It was a memorable sighting of the southern right whales that are our yearly visitors.
It was a beautiful day. Very well organized and following covid protocols most of the time.
Amazing experience and great knowledge, friendly stuff.
