The family time away from everything seeing seeing animals we never thought we would see. We saw a blue whale, blue puffer fish and a bunch of other awesome sea animals.

The cruise was very entertaining, the staff on board made it possible and they kept it fun. Not only was it an awesome sight seeing experience but we say a blue puffer fish and a blue whale.

We had a great weather day, but most of all we saw 4 whales and one in particular whose tail was out of the water when he took his dive. Thanks for a fun day!

It was a nice ride! Didn't see any whales however.

Very friendly staff, good organization

Unfortunately, we did not see any whales, not even fountains or tails. :-(
