We saw a lot of whales,...

We saw a lot of whales, but it was maybe more whale chasing than watching, the boats go to close and than the whales of course dive. The crew was great, a nice ride, not to crowded boat and really easy to find on the location. Would recomend.

The skippers did their absolute best to spot some whales. We ended up spotting four and got really close to the last one that we spotted! Their knowledge is fantastic which helped deliver a really good experience. Food was provided on the boat (pastries, tea, coffee, sandwiches) and the speed boat wasnt overcrowded. There was 8 of us all together, including the two skippers. A great experience.

Organisation au top, sécurisée, organisée, respectueux des animaux et responsable, des bateaux bien équipés et non surchargés. Nous n’avons malheureusement vu qu’un seul mâle solitaire, mais ça reste des animaux sauvage et c’est le jeu. Des skippers au top aussi. Nous avons fait les dauphins avec eux aussi, excursion juste magnifique et très très bien organisée. Tout le monde a un gilet de sauvetage, on plonge 2 par 2 avec un responsable qui nous accompagne. On observe d’abord pour savoir s’ils chassent ou voyagent ou jouent. Un moment juste magique. Ma fille 11 ans était émerveillée !

Équipage fort sympathique. Un moment inoubliable. Par contre, un peu trop prêt des cachalots à mon goût. ..certes nous les avons vu de très pres mais je ne suis pas sûre que nous ayons respecté leur tranquillité.
