We boarded our boat, got a comfortable seat and started out of port. Not long after leaving the harbor, we started seeing whales. our captain made every effort to get us the best view possible. We had some whales that came right up to the boat and gave us a spectacular view. We ended up seeing a dozen whales and got some great pictures. Couldn't be happier.

Despite the warning that we may not get lucky we saw amazing Whales and got very close to it.
Great explanation from Krill.
Booze for sale on board made it even better...

The seven seas whale watch was really a fun trip. We saw 4 whales including 3 humpback whales and one blue whale. The captain did a great job in maneuvering the some what choppy waters, but the naturalist on board Carol or "Crill" was outstanding. She was not only very pleasant but also very knowledgeable and provided a lot of information at the appropriate times. We were on the last trip of the season and was very cool!

It's amazing. It is my first time to have such a close distance with live whale! Although it's a little pity that I only see two kinds of whales and it's so cold on the sea, but anyway, I like it.
