Very implicated

I really would like to go there at sunset but hey I'm just sad not to have seen killer whales

Great staff, annoying tourists

The tourists screamed every time they saw a millimeter of an orca's fin. These spoil the fun of the trip. Otherwise the staff was very friendly, except for the Captain (Bill, was uncomfortably in a bad mood). You only saw 1 orka, about 200 meters away. But I had a lot of fun driving on the boat at sunset :) Thanks again =)
