We didn't see any whales unfortunately but that's the risk you take when you want to see animals in the wild. (and this is how you should see them). Captain and guide were very friendly, gave us information and they even stopped to take out some balloons in that were in the water that could possibly harm tha animals.. So you see that these people care about them! We did see a lot of dolphins up close and also seelions, so defenetly with the while!!!

Children had a great experience. They loved the boat ride out. Late in the adventure we came to a large pod of dolphins (it was our only contact) They swam with the boat for more than 10 min. allowing for a lot of time for the kids to enjoy. Many pictures and videos to remember the event.
