“Saw Whales!”
Review of Spirit Of The Sea

Spirit Of The Sea
Ranked #4 of 17 Tours in Puerto Rico
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 18, 2012

The "Spirit of the Sea" is a twin hulled vessel and I was pleased that it was, because the day that we went out there was quite a swell on. (Twin hulled boats are much more stable than single hulled in rougher water) We went on the three hour trip and left at 10am. We had a good trip out and it didn't seem long before we had come across two local fishing boats (presumably spotters) they had located a school of whales and we followed them for a little time until the skipper said we would leave them as he didn't want them to get stressed. He said we would go in search of dolphins, in the event we were unsuccessful in this. We arrived back near to Puerto Rico harbour and those who wanted had a swim off the stern of the boat. We enjoyed the trip to see the whales and shall go again next time we are there. Hopefully the sea state will be flat calm!

I'm not sure if it was this company or not, but we took a dolphin and whale watching trip lasting a couple of hours.

Within half an hour, we were within feet of a huge whale, spouting off near the boat. We enjoyed this very much but better was to come.....lots of dolphins, including babies all around the boat - I'm sure we got luck but definitely worth the 25 euros each (free trip another day if you don't see Whales or Dolphins).

Informative crew, with handouts telling us about the whale and dolphins we had seen. Thank you for such a good day out.

Good afternoon trip, saw briefly one Dolphin, but everyone offered a free ticket to go again as recompense.
A bit rough when we went, my partner was very `poorly` [I laughed]
Don,t sit at the front if wearing posh gear, LOL, very wet at times.
Want to do something for 3 hrs one day, Look no further!

Two very excited children who will remember this three hour trip for a very long time. Great value, small boat, free soft drink, swim in the sea, only thing missing was a whale!
