The tour guide and service were great...

The tour guide and service were great! Unfortunately, however, we only saw one whale. The weather wasn't great and the boat made us feel pretty sick and also did not have a lot of space, and it was very slow moving so it takes a while to get to the area where you might be able to see whales. I was clinging onto the railing the entire way back and got bruises. I don't think there is anything that the staff could have done better, they were great! Just know what you are signing up for.
For people who never seen these...

For people who never seen these beautiful giantic creaturs, it's a must have trip : For me that was just only a nice time spend, for my girlfirend it was like one of the biggest adventures. The boat is funny on your arrival, crew gives you warm overall in order to protect, and tries to monitor seas in order to find more place to see whales, trying to approach or at least pass as close as possible. Recommended to join! :
