I would highly recommend Ocean Sports to anyone looking for a fun, safe whale watch adventure run by a professional operation. Their website says you're guaranteed to spot a humpback or you can ride again. I can't imagine they have to honor that promise as the crew seemed very knowledgeable and quickly spotted three humpbacks that we tracked for the duration of our trip.
The catamaran is quite large and easily held about two dozen men, women and children. This seemed like a great excursion for families, especially those with small children. The staff was professional and attentive. They were great at keeping the young children on the boat interested and engaged as we made our way into the open water. There was a guy on the mic educating us about whales and marine life. I could have used a little less talking, but I would imagine a silent boat ride at 8 AM may not be as appealing to everybody as was the higher-energy atmosphere they created. Any member of the family, in almost any physical condition (so long as they can walk), can find a comfortable place to sit on the boat. Refreshments (water, juice, soft drinks and granola bars) are available, as well as beers. They have a marine lavatory on the boat as well. When embarking and disembarking, there were plenty of attendants helping the kids and older people on and off the boats (you have to board their glass-bottom boat in smaller groups to be ferried out to the catamaran.
I'm glad we spent the money to go on this tour, though I don't know if I'd repeat it unless I went with someone else who had never been before. I would probably do the snorkel tour next to change things up a bit.
