By far the best outing we did while on the island! Catherine provided exceptional insight into the humpback whales and their relationship to the islands. Listening to them on the microphone was absolutely life changing - phenomenal! We had the chance to watch a mother and her calf frolic in the waves. The mother would do something, the calf would... 更多
We loved the smaller boat with fewer people. We had great sightings and a whale swam right under the boat (not that this is under their control but - it still made the trip fabulous :) We had some scheduling issues due to a mistake by an employee but they did everything possible and went above and beyond to make... 更多

Our intrepid leader, Katherine, was very knowledgeable (she's a marine biologist) but also a great tour guide, answering all questions and solicitous to those who felt a little seasick.

She makes sure you feel comfortable, offered a wet suit top - much appreciated. I had my own gear, but what is offered seemed... 更多
