Thank you Mike, Michelle and Johnny for an awesome experience on the Bay of Banderas. Seeing mother whales with their calves, cavorting dolphins and the very big, very brave sea turtles swimming on the surface of the water was memory-making. As "Grandma" on the trip I especially appreciated all the questions Mike answered to Ainsley and Matthew.
We highly recommend this opportunity to see nature in nature!

From the moment Michelle, Mike, and crewman, Johnny, warmly welcomed us aboard their sailing boat one felt a special time was about to be had by all. The atmosphere was relaxing as we were pampered with beverages and able to move about the boat to experience a variety of viewing points to whale watch. While we savored our warm seafood lunch the mood aboard the boat switch from sighs of contentment to one filled with amazement and wonderment. Those of us at the stern were first to realize we had company joining us as the back of a humpback whale appeared just a few meters away. This "curious" creature graced us with its company for a good while as it circled and swam under the boat. One will never forget the feeling of awe that came over us all. What was already an extraordinary outing, due to the services and congeniality of the members of the Red Dolphin Charters turned into a extra extraordinary one! Annabelle

I was a little skeptical of going whale watching in La Cruz, as I've had some pretty ho hum experiences. This turned out to be the best day on the water ever. Not only do Mike and Michelle warmly invite you onto their home, but the whale watching turned out to be brilliant. Check out Michelle's video on YouTube to get a taste of one of the many whale encounters we had on the trip. It was a once in a lifetime experience. Home run Mike, tough to top.

Our family had the great pleasure of going whale watching with Mike, Michelle and Johnny and it was a day we will never forget!! Started the tour around 930 am and by 1030 we had already spotted whales. We not only spotted them but they were so close you could almost touch them , truly amazing creatures. Mike and Michelle and crew Johnny are fantastic hosts, serving drinks and a wonderful lunch prepared by Michelle. A trip we would recommend to anyone!! Thanks again we will be back.
