I've seen whales in zoos before, so I wasn't really sure what to expect when seeing them in the wild. How do we find them? How many will we see? I signed up for the tour anyway, not knowing what to expect. We ran into...More

We went out last Tuesday (10/10/17) and we saw about 2 dozen whales. Not sure about what happens if you don't see any.
