The cruise I took on Nov 2nd was great and well worth it. Got to see about 12 piots whlaes and a few dolphins. The lunch was good and the whole experience was very good.

Historic boat was cool! Scenery was amazing, great views of the coast and caldera. Unfortunately the waves were too big to be able to do the swimming / snorkeling stop. Food was decent. Bonus, some dolphin spotting! Overall a fine trip.
