Great trip! Lots of whales, and the naturalist onboard was great at describing and explaining the whale behaviors we observed -- everything from breaching to bubble trails. We'll probably do it again on another trip.
Lots of fun. Saw lots of Whales. Crew was very knowledgeable and passionate. Great catamaran and we got to sail too since the winds agreed!
The staff at the whale foundation were and are amazing! The trip itself was beyond phenomenal. We will definitely be booking through the whale foundation for trips in the future! We couldn't ask for a better experience!
