As others have stated, in a full body suit to keep you warm and dry so warm clothing not required. Got remarkably lucky as a pod of 6-8 whales must have surfaced 100 times in the 90-minutes we were on-board, not 100 yards from shore....More

What fun to actually chase down a whale! Our guide was very skilled and knowledgable. The tour of Bird Island was also quite informative. This tour was much better than those bigger boats.
