It was an amazing experience as we could see whales. We were in a catamaran and it was fun. The captain of the catamaran and Lee the tour guide were friendly and lovely people.

This is a must do during the whale watching season. The 2 person crew were fantastic, we spent the whole morning sharing some very memorable moments with these majestic giants.
