Nice folk, amazing weather and a good trip with some sightings. Frustrating to be bobbing about for fairly long periods of time, scanning ocean surface for signs of life. Suggest it's time to harness some tech with a drone sending a camera feed to boat to help locate whales, and for guests to look at. Also an underwater camera providing a live feed, so even if there's nothing on the surface, the guests can still see what's going on. Overall an enjoyable but expensive outing with a 'nearly but not quite' overall feeling. Having said all of that, whales are the BEST ;-))

We had a delightful morning on the water, following six or more whales. We'd recommend this company for its location, as we could leave from the centre of town and the boat left from the main beach. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable.
