A lot of good hype but poor execution ! Promotion of this tour played up all the positives to take this tour on a sailing vessel instead of common power boats --- we were never fully under sail, during our 8hr day. Seems like the captain didn't like the wind (I don't think he ever does) Another major complaint is lack of proper equipment for the snorkeling part of this tour. The only way to enter the water was to jump off the side of the ship. For people,not comfortable in the water, this is very intimidating. As a result my wife stayed on board ship while the rest had a nice time snorkeling --- not fun !! Snorkeling areas and island beach areas were overly crowded with other tourists.

Although it was a cloudy day we enjoyed our 4 hrs at sea. Within am hour we spotted whales. We had one large female completly jump out of the water, we had 2 unexpectedly surfaced directly in front of the boat which were part of a pod of 6, and then we witnessed a female flapping her tail trying to attract a male, and so she did. The trip was 4 hours and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The only thing we didn't expect was a coffee with powdered cream and cookie breakfast, but the sandwiches for lunch made up for it A must do!
