It's hard to get the whales to cooperate but these guys did their best. They seemed very knowledgeable and experienced, knew where to go and were on the lookout. Anytime they would see anything in the distance they would go chase after it to give us a chance to see something. It wasn't really the season for whales, but we did end up seeing 1 or 2, plus a couple of other animals like sea otters and dolphins.

First time I ever got charged for using an expired Groupon and the weather was overcast and cold. Everyone was very nice except for the guy ringing us up not very friendly.

Just too bad we didn't see the whale swam close, but we saw little hump swam up. Afterall it was a nice ride, the big boat & captain was good. It was kinda rough sea for me. at 5pm that's the deal when I bought but I drank Dramamine anti drowsy & it helped. Recommend it.

Keep your camera/phone charged and close by. I got some great shots. Could be cool, bring a jacket, usually real windy.

Mixed day saw lot of dolphins, but no sign of whales today. Crew is good, they tried a lot but our bad luck.
