Booked last minute, glad we did. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Lovely lunch, afternoon tea provided. Clean, comfortable boat, plenty of space. Lots of whales sighted. We arrived back a little later than expected (thank you Whalesong crew), only because so many whales were playfully breaching nearby....More
