The whales you can expect to see are Minke and Humpback.  You will head out past "Puffin island" so will see 1000's of these birds both here and as you go further out into the bay.  Life of Whales is an alternative to the larger boats offered in the same harbour by others.  It is about the same price (although the bigger boats will perhaps offer larger discounts if asked) and with about 40 people on board it has a personal feel. It has very powerful engines so it can get out into the bay and back and from one whale sighting to another very fast so the maximum time is spent watching and fishing.  The company also own a resturant and offer to cook (for a price) any fish you catch (the fish catch themselves in reality).
