The joy of whale watching!
Leavie_D, Jun 2021
Seeing the Blue Whales and conversing with the young lady onboard providing information about everything from the whales, the break waters to Howard Hughes’ Spruce Goose. She was excellent.

It was an amazing experience for me and my wife. Though we expected a whale but watching some dolphins jumping was good enough. Thanks to the Captain and the staff who made our experience a memorable one. Thank you! 👍😊
