Be in awe of the spectacular breaching, close encounters, magical songs and tail slapping of the humback whales. Get up close and personal with these gentle giants of the sea and encounter pods of dolphins and turtles. The biggest advantage of whale watching on Crusader 1 is that you'll always have that rail side position ready for that perfect photo moment.
