We saw whales!

The dock where the boat leaves is full of boardwalk fun - food, games, and shops. It was nice to walk around while waiting for the boat the leave.

Just the relaxation of sailing on the Pacific, watching all the people on the boat, and the hope and anticipation of seeing whales and dolphins. Everyone was so very polite and kind.

This trip was my 77th birthday gift. What a great way to celebrate a birthday. We will definitely return. Thanks, Travelzoo, for making this happen!
