We went out on the morning tour when the whales were most active and the water the calmest. We saw many whales including a calf and mother. A continental breakfast is provided. We all were VERY surprised when two whales were under the boat and suddenly came up for air right next to us. No one expected that and no one had their cameras at the ready. They have a microphone which they lower as we drifted. What a symphony of sound!. They made the trip informative and fun. Don't forget to get your "Passport" signed.
