Greatly recommend

The weather was great, so quite a bit of luck. We also got to see humpback whales, amazing luck again. The whole tour is a string of amazing views and breathtaking sights. The guide was very informative and was able to answer all the questions that I had. Great experience, would definitely recommend!
