An incredible experience
, Dec 2019
The skippers did their absolute best to spot some whales. We ended up spotting four and got really close to the last one that we spotted! Their knowledge is fantastic which helped deliver a really good experience. Food was provided on the boat (pastries, tea, coffee, sandwiches) and the speed boat wasnt overcrowded. There was 8 of us all together, including the two skippers. A great experience.

Des cachalots à gogo !
, Feb 2020
Équipage fort sympathique. Un moment inoubliable. Par contre, un peu trop prêt des cachalots à mon goût. ..certes nous les avons vu de très pres mais je ne suis pas sûre que nous ayons respecté leur tranquillité.

Vimos ballenas

Estuvieron buscando a las ballenas durante algo más de una hora,y cuando las encontramos nos paramos a verlas.Cuando se dejábamos de verlas, íbamos en busca de mas y asi en varias ocasiones,asique las vimos fenomenal.negativo:el camino al barco no es apto para movilidad reducida ni carritos y...el mareo en bel barco,mejor llevar chicles o algo antimareo
