Captain Mark took the time to explain the local history of the whales, how they interact with each other, what to look for, and the local traditions. It was a great experience! Would definitely go with them again.

I would do it again, and will recommend it to my friends. The Captain called me within minutes to let me know we had left some of our things on the boat, Very thoughtful.

The boat is run by a local family and it brings across a lovely, friendly, laid back vibe. Mixed crowd on board but all seemed to enjoy it. We saw whales, turtles and there was even a swim with sharks session - not compulsory and...More

I don't remember getting wet, but being on a sailboat there's always a chance. Dress casual for sure. You may end up sitting on a cooler, on the deck or the roof of the cabin. A swimming suit, or shorts and a tee are... More
