Thank you thank you thank you. We have never been on a whale watching excursion! I really appreciated the fact you taught us about whales the environment in which they live and made it interactive. You guys do a fantastic job.

We went out last Tuesday (10/10/17) and we saw about 2 dozen whales. Not sure about what happens if you don't see any.
