A thoroughly enjoyable trip. Equipped with water proof suit. Refreshments/bar area on board. Communication on board by the presenter was fabulous. Well worth a trip.

We enjoyed very much watching whales and dolphins but the think we liked the most was the environmental speech the guide Gave, alerting for whaling activities, oceans polution and more. Thank you for trying to make the world a cleaner place.
