The captain got us some fantastic views of the whales. We also saw some bottlenose and spinner dolphins that were acrobats. Nate the first mate was took good care of us and made a great suggestion on where to go to see green sea turtles.

Yes, there is a head (sea toilet) on the boat. Highly recommend you use the facilities at the harbor before you leave.

My sister is 5 months pregnant and she went on the manta tour - was no problem, just sat further back in the boat for a smoother ride.
