Fabulous day of dolphins, humpbacks and orcas. Guide was excellent! Recommend highly! Zodiac was fast - when the call came as to the Orcas being sighted by the lighthouse folks, we were there in no time!

We went on the 8 hour whale watching trip with Leif (Mario) as our guide in mid Sept 2016.

Within 20 minutes... More
