I absolutely hated the whole experience. Driver was ignorant and didn't care about anything but himself and his music. Wouldn't be suitable for kids. Was looking forward to the trip but overall it was a waste of money and never would I do it again.More

Absolutely amazing, we saw both pilot whales and dolphins. The whales came so close to the boat we could hear them talking to each other!Really recommend a small boat like this for whale watching. There were only 7 of us altogether, amazing experience.
