    It was worth every single penny!! The crew really took care of us,gave us food and snacks and were so engaged and enthusiastic. They did not gave up until every one had seen a whale under water! Highly reccomend this.

    Had a once in a lifetime experience on the Swim with the Whales tour today! Swimming with these amazing gentle giants is awe inspiring. The skipper Ed and the staff were fantastic - very professional, well organised, knowledgeable, and a lot of fun.

    Sorry for the late reply, but no, whale season is from mid-July to mid-November. Whales are pretty much gone by late November.
