Great whale watching tour!

I had a great time during the entire tour. We saw 4 whales and watched them play for at least an hour. I got lots of pictures and video. It was definitely one of the highlights of my vacation.

The tour guide is very friendly and provided lots of information. We spotted a whale and calf from very far away. I did get a picture of whale tail. Be preparing that sea was really rough and it is better to take some seasick medicine before you go. Overall this is a lifetime experience and worth to take it.
