The size of boat and amount of passengers.

Great crew. Didn't feel cramped and plenty of room to walk around boat.

I loved seeing all 5 whales on our 2 hr tour!

This is one of my favorite companies to use when going whale watching. They are on time and provide great information regarding the type of whales we see on the tour.

not really

quality of the crew on board the boat. No interaction, uninterested crew. The announcer sounded like he was reading from a script
