Courteous and orderly.

The swell and no whale!

Nice long peaceful boat ride. not much room to sit, better to stand and enjoy, be sure to wear comfortable shoes. no risk of getting wet at all. take sunscreen and glasses or a hat. make sure to have a strap for your camera or cell phone, so you can take pics and not risk dropping in the ocean

very friendly. no need to show up extremely early, boat shows up and check in starts, kinda slow check in.

They were very nice.

There were no whales. It was very cold and windy.

Enjoyed the actual boat ride.

An easier method of booking (I.e. all online). By having the call the vendor, I found that I had to call a few times to have someone pick up to take my reservation.
