I'm From Virginia Beach and we have whales, but I've never seen any up close. This trip I not only got to see them up close and personal I got to swim with them less than 10 feet away under the water!!!! I have been on some amazing trips around the world and nothing has compared to the trip i took w/ Sean and Kelly. We got to try snorkling for the first time and i picked it up pretty quickly they are great teachers. I was with my wife and sister who struggled a little with rogher than usual conditions but they had fun also. I recomend trying to snorkel close to the beach first to get a little experience, but if your ballsy like me you can jump right in and take a few gulps of sea water and you will learn very quickly. I can't say enough good things about Sean and Kelly they were very helpful, courtious,friendly,professional,and served an excellent breakfast and lunch. I got to swim with sea turtles many tropical fish and my god the whales. I was only 1 of 2 poeple on our boat who got to see them under the water It made me feel amazing. They were so close I started swimming backwards then I thought what are you doing you fool swim with them so I did right along side them there were 3 of them mom baby and escort male. It was an experience I will never forget as long as I live. We did alot on moui but this was by far our best day! P.S. Make sure to take some dramamine 1 hour before boarding if you are prone to motion sickness my sister got a little sea sick the trip would have been much more fun for her if that didn't happen. But deffinatly try this trip it's well worth the money.
