The guides were very nice and gave us a lot of interesting information about whales during the trip. Despite the rather bad weather with rain, we saw humpback whales and it was great! We can also only recommend putting on the offered overalls (available in different sizes) - they keep you warm and above all dry, making the experience on deck even more fun.

Charming! Two hours were spent getting to and from the island. We saw 4 whales and it was beautiful. Three approached the boat several times! The guide told us some curiosities and we were offered hot drinks and biscuits

So so cool! We saw about 20 whales on our visit and one was a super close encounter. Great amenities on board the ship including food, drinks and overalls. Highly recommend!

Great trip, we were lucky enough to see 3 humpback whales and learned a lot of interesting things. We recommend!

Great guides. Smooth running. Of course, seeing whales is always a matter of luck
