This was an exceptional whale watching cruise with an expert on whales who goes from Alaska in the summer to Hawaii in the winter to track whales. He even kept a notebook regarding sightings, depth, etc. It was a very nice crew and vessel.

The whale watching on Gemini was out of this world. In 25 years I have never had such a great experience. We must have seen almost thirty breaches, tail slaps and flipper waves! One whale even lifted its upper body vertically out of the water...More
