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!!!

It was amazing! We saw 2 or 3 fin whales, a lot of dolphins, sunfishes, sea lions, seals and peregrine falcon! And our caritan had a drone and so we quickly spotted the whales and got great photos and videos

I highly recommend this smaller and faster boat. It has few passengers and fantastic visibility. No bathrooms on board so must be able to “hold it” until your is complete.

The tour was amazing, we saw hundreds of dolphins and two fin whales- was an amazing experience and both our guide and the captain were brilliant

It was an amazing experience overall. The tour guide was really nice, approachable and waited for us even though we were a few minutes late.
