Simon, Kelly & Monica provided a better than expected experience. Their boat offers plenty of both sun and shade options and a bathroom! They were attentive to the passengers needs and comforts. We saw lots of whales, learned about their mating and singing habits and listened on a hydrophone to their calls. Highly recommend!
