The whales.

Jul 15, 2014 Alex RI, United States

Though the sightings are not as many as we would like and the ocean was a bit choppy (causing motion sickness to myself and many fellow passengers), I still enjoyed watching whales with my wife and my sons.

good crew

notify the passangers when the ocean is going to be rough before departing so they can make a decission to go or not go. several got sea sick in 5 foot seas at times.
