Captain Ben, Sami and Amber were awesome on this tour. We learned all about the humpbacks and how they have identified them. We were able to see many flukes as well as blows! Thank you for the experience!

We do guarantee to get you back to your ship on time - if you miss your ship due to our tour being late, we will fly you to your next port of call via float plane. But don't worry it has never happened on our watch! :-)

They had bottles of water and some snacks on our boat that they captain and naturalist were kind enough to bring along for us. The jet boat we were on probably only held about 20 people or so. It was nice!
