We were fortunate to have a cow, calf, and escort interact with the boat so we could see them up close. We saw others too but these three were really close.

Whales were great, tour was “meh”

We did see whales, which I guess was what we paid for. There is little else to say about what we enjoyed on this trip... the staff was less than polite or accommodating, the captain was not very charming, and we would probably look elsewhere for an enjoyable tour... but, we did see whales!
