    From onboarding to commentary to success at finding whales, this tour was top notch! Didn’t need to go far for our first sightings. Some frisky yearlings breaching and tale slapping but on quite a show for our granddaughter and us. Boat was quite stable and the length of tour was juat right for young ones.
