I've been on lots of Whale Watching trips, Sail Boats, Cats, and Charter boats. But this was my first on an inflatible. I picked HOR because their Ocean Raft was smaller, turned out to be a good move. The raft holds 16 but we only had 11 so there was lots of room and everyone was nice and friendly. The crew of two were awesome and fun, and full of whale knowledge. The trip was April 20th so it's close to the end of the season and we weren't sure we would see a lot. We were only out for about 15 mins when we spotted our first whale, then another, and another, then a Mama, Escort, and baby, then somemore. We had a Mama swim right under the raft, about 20' below us. The raft is about 10 - 12 ft wide and the whale was 45 ft long, it was awesome. Did I mention it's about $10 less than the larger rafts, and if you book on-line you get a $6 discount. Go for it!!!
