This trip was fantastic , and I loved our guide Gemma's enthusiasm for the welfare of sea life. In my eyes she made the trip for us , and we followed a pod of whales for an hour. Worth every penny!! Sorry cents 😊

I would suggest booking at least a few days early. The open boat only seats 15 or so. Follow them on Facebook too. They posts about offers and tickets often. I booked two or three days before arrived on a whim and they still... More
