This attraction has earned mixed reviews. On one hand, they do a wonderful job of finding and getting you close to whales. The naturalist on board shares wonderful insights on the whale population. At other times, the captain ignores the company's own safety rules. Quality...More

Why is management so against people asking for life vests? I understand that a noodle is better , but if someone wants a life vest why embarrass them? Why answer trip advisor with such arrogance ? I'm a great swimmer but was planing on asking to see them!
