Great crew. Amazing boat. Despite being cancelled during October rebooked to Nov with no guarantee of whales. Well 8 whales (including 4 calfs) later we are pretty happy. Excellent knowledge of humpback whales. Unforgettable.

As I recall we were able to visit SeaWorld the day before, the same day as the tour or up to 2 days after the tour. You can find this information on their website under FAQs. Enjoy your tour.
