I thought it was a wonderful organized trip; Watch the whales! One recommendation: The Slideshow was only in Portugese and i would really have appreciated if it (also) was in English. Nice, lovely people with passion for their work. Thank you!

I was looking for a long trek in the jungle and while they couldn't exactly provide me with what I wanted they put me in contact with a loca guide specialised in wildlife and it was a great suggestion. Great knowledge and attitude. Fantastic guide

We saw three whales just above the surface. The staff and crew were very knowledgeable and were attentive to our needs. I would recommend this on a calmer day more in breeding season.
