We all had a wonderful time. We were together a family of 5 enjoying a perfect 3 hours looking for birds, dolphins, and whales. We didn’t see whales but we saw the dolphins with their family especially the babies! We ate and drank, relaxed out in the sun and in the interior seating with windows. The crew were so helpful both educational and informative on our coming again and we definitely will!!!

Plenty of room. My husband like the beer. We were pleased that the ship didn't get to close to cause injury to the animals. The narration was informative and kept the passengers appraised of sitings and directions for watching. It was a beautiful day but, unfortunately there were no whales to be seen. The captain went by previous sitings and other information. He really tried to find the whales. When you get your ticket at the dock, ask where to line up so you don't lose your place in line by having to move to a different gangway.

Ich kann keine Bewertung abgeben, weil ich leider einen Boots trip in Jersey UK buchen wollte und irrtümlich den Bootstripin Jersey USA gebucht habe. Ich habe Ihnen geschrieben aber leider habe ich noch kein Feedback von Ihnen gehört - Mein Geld wurde erfolgreich abgebucht. Ich hoffe es meldet sich mal jemand per Mail bei mir.
