I am so happy we found the Whale Watch! We spent a few days there and can't wait to go back and do it again. The owners were so accommodating.

We stayed in one of the cottages and we found it quite comfotable. We called the night before we arrived just to check on the size of the coffee pot. Those little 2 cup pots just wouldn't cut it for us. We were assured the kitchens were fully equipped with a full size 12 cup coffee maker. There were filters...
