We didn't get to see any whales. Only flying fish. We understand that it's not the crew's fault so we don't rate the lowest.

The captains, Captain Z and Paulina were great! Very laid back and kind. The boat takes small groups so it's not crowded. They tailored the experience to the different needs of the two families. When we dropped our camera in the water, they circled around...More
