It was an amazing experience overall. The tour guide was really nice, approachable and waited for us even though we were a few minutes late.

We didn’t get to see much but our captain was enthusiastic and the water was beautiful. I will be coming back soon.

Well organized tour. Unfortunately no whales nor dolphins seen. But there's nothing you can do.

It was a nice trip and a good experience, although we could not view any Whales.

Very decent people and excellent trip. Super value too. Great fun.
