Unlike other boats staying only for about 20 minutes with the whales we watched them for 1.5h. We saw at least 20 sperm whales also a shark & a moon fish. Great experience with amazing crew & captain. Fantastic day out !!!

We had a great time out watching the local wildlife. Sadly, we didn't see any whales, but we got to see several different pods of dolphins. We couldn't have asked for better weather!

With Moby Dick, you get a 4 hour trip considerably cheaper than Futurisimo's 3 hour trip. We went on an afternoon trip which actually lasted 4.5 hours (which I don't think is unusual as we saw the morning boat also come back late) ) -...More
