I've never been whale watching before. In the past, whenever I had seen the opportunity to go, it was way too expensive. Dolphin Fleet, however was much more affordable than I expected. At $42 per person (including the online discount) it was very affordable and a great value for such a long trip - and they guarantee you see a whale! How awesome!
The naturalist was a lot of fun, and very informative, and the captain was great at chasing down the whales. When one was spotted on the horizon, he would high-tail it out to where the whale was sighted, then we would sit and wait until it showed itself again. They do a great job of giving you a great view, but not disrupting the wildlife. While we were out, we saw about 5 different whales (humpback and minke) and a couple of seals. It was really cool how the naturalist could identify the individual humpbacks by name if he saw the markings on its fluke. For example, we got to meet "Wizard" a few times, and he was able to tell us a little about her history.
Make sure you bring a jacket, maybe a hat, but warm clothing is necessary. It was COLD out there!
