Wonderful experience. Saw about 5 grey south bound whales- and pretty close up. The naturalist talked sometimes over the speaker, but many times would have side conversations with other people. Wish he could've educated us some more. Very friendly guy though. The captain was pretty nice and really wanted us to have the best experience as well. Would do this again. Wish there was more seating as well.
