Whale watching was nice...

Whale watching was nice and fun and exciting. The only bad part was the staff member was picking and chosen who she wanted to help and greet and who she wanted to be friendly with. Seeing that make u feel some kind of way.

The perfect whale watching experience

We spent about an hour with 2 humpbacks and smelled their stinky whale breath. It was unforgettable. We also traveled through the water with a large pod of dolphins. More than we could count. The marine biologist onboard was very informative. The weather was perfect so it was a great time to be on the water.

So Worth It

We saw tons of dolphins and a humpback whale! It was amazing! Highly recommended. The crew was extremely nice and they even took us out a little longer than they were supposed to because they got word of a whale sighting.
