Somewhat of an adventurous outing. Good for everyone who would like know the challenges of the ocean.There could be some uncomfortable feeling if touring for the first time.But get rewarded with the view of whales and dolphins in their natural habitat

You will see several whales (maybe its one family). You will go there by boat maybe 45 minutes and 30 minutes you will hunting the whales with another 3 boats. But I can recommend it. The Best boat is Eagle eye. The Red one.
