I’m amazed how much these people care to protect the beautiful whales, dolphins and turtles. They try to educate everyone and teach people to care for their environment at all times.

What a great trip! The boat is beautiful, quiet, roomy. They served us juice and water and there were snacks and other beverages for sale. Our guide was extremely spunky, knowledgeable, and very interesting. We were lucky to see many whales, and they even dropped a mic into the waters so we could here the whalesong---a highlight for us. Great!
