Love the humpbacks

Our naturalist was great, did not overtalk the situation. The cruise started out great then we had a rough patch when it looked like we might not see any whales. Thankfully, we found a group of humpbacks and they put on a great show for us. I was sad that we did not have any dolphins, but my son wanted to see the whales more than anything so it was a great day. My advice for the am sailing is to take motion sickness as a precaution and to bring scarves and gloves. It makes the experience more enjoyable. the extra money for top deck was worth it as there was more space to move around and it was not a pain to move from port to starboard as the whales moved location.

There were plenty of whales to see, and the guides were fantastic with lots of knowledge, be prepared for the swell though. I was sick.:( but I would still highly recommend this cruise.

Professional service ordering tickets on the phone. Very polite and courteous hands on the cruise and a very informative and professional captain. Suggestion: perhaps offer "adults only" cruises at certain times during the day?

Had an amazing time, saw humpback whales, blue whale and Risso's dolphins. Many jellyfish in the ware as well. The guide gave lots of interesting information and clearly had passion for what he did. Crew regularly checked guests for seasickness and overall safety. Had a great time and would do it again!

Excellent trip saw humpback whales which was exciting. Staff very good and knowledgeable. Arrived early and we were asked if we wanted to take earlier boat as the one we booked was full and this one was not. We did and everything was great.

Great time. Saw humpback mother with calf and lots of dolphins and sea lions. Had plenty of room to move about the vessel. We were on the Greatland.
