I did the wale watching which beside the watching was a very well, professional organized trip. We encountered an educational and wisdom filled presentation from a captain and crew that was friendly, knowledgeable and always positive.

I went on the whale and dolphin cruise today. Don't bother watching at the front for anything, at the first sign of dolphins or whales you will be told o get out the way while the staff take prime position to take their photos. this is disappointing as they see the wildlife everyday and for me it was literally a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. being moved aside at the critical moments when th dolphins came uner the bboat ruined what should have been a glorious day.

We did the dinner cruise and were not disappointed. It's not too long and you can have a go at steering the boat if you like. Dinner and wine was good and the whole experience was worth the money. We sailed back at sunset which was great for photos.

Went on the America's Cup Match Race and what a blast! The crew was young but very experienced in sailing and they all had a great sense of humor! I know it was nothing like sailing in the "real" America's Cup but it was fun learning about racing. It was hard work but fun competing with the other yacht that we were racing. We won! Thanks guys!!!!
