Hands down the best whale watching trip I’ve ever been on! The family loved this trip. Worth every penny and more! Most unique and adventurous experience. A phenomenal personalized experience. Absolute blast. My kids had a wonderful time. One of the most amazing things I have ever done. Much better than the over packed whale watching cruise ships.
