We took the 2hr tour on the double decker boat. Water was rough that day but we did see a lot of pilot whales. They stressed safety a lot and seemed to care about their passengers.

After being 2 other tours canceling last minute on us captain Richard and crew saved our day by taking us out even though no other guests booked for that trip. Found a group of pilot whales in no time. Had a great trip. Highly recommended.
