It was a wonderful cruise. It went an extra 11/2 hours just to make sure we saw plenty of whales. We saw probably 6 different Humpback whales feeding about 20 or 30 feet from the boat. It was an experience that I will never forget.

We were fortunate enough to have the best weather to go on a whale watch. The seas were calm, it was warm and a truly pleasant trip on the catamaran. We saw a few whales and got one really good video. If anyone is looking for a relaxing, enjoyable afternoon, this trip is highly recommended.

Watch was ok. I guess I expected to see much bigger whales. The boat was filled to capacity, so unless you got to the rail first, you were not able to see anything. Fun, but wouldn't do again.
