We had a really good time. The guide explained everything very well. I also got a bit seasick on the boat, but with some help and advice from the guide, i was able to continue. We saw 10 sperm whales and a bunch of dolphins.

Today we saw Sperm whales, Fin and Blue whales. While each species gave us amazing sights it was the blue whales that delivered a special show!
