While we didn't see any blue whales, we did see a large pod of dolphins including some very young ones. It was fabulous!

The staff was very professional and courteous. They worked hard to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves.

We luckily had an overcast so it was very nice and being able to see the massive amount of dolphins was exciting!

The experience was awesome, had it not been an overcast it probably wouldnt have been that exciting (we went in the beginning of july) due to the fact that the last hour the sun finally came out and it beating on us. Myself and a few other people were already to go back to the dock. other then that it was nice.. 3 hours might be a little too long, especially since we didnt get to see any whales

We saw common dolphins swimming alongside the boat which was really cool and then we saw the blue whales. It was pretty awesome. The naturalist and the crew were great
