Despite the bad weather and the rugged sea, the crew did their best to make it as pleasant as possible for everyone who was with them. Eventually a blue whale with a young can spot. The boat remained neatly at a distance to disturb the animals as less as possible. Crew has made beautiful pictures of the whales so we had all the time to look at these beautiful animals. Wonderful experience thanks to the helpful and very friendly crew. Definitely recommended!
Amazing experience, were lucky to spot blue whales , Sea was rough ... the crew is well experienced and friendly more »
The crew was so knowledgeable! We stayed a respectful distance from all the wildlife we came across. The food was great, tea hot, and the whole process was very smooth. They even had a crew member on board with a giant telephoto who shared pictures with everyone at the end. I can't wait to go back and see the crew again!
This was an amazing experience, very very enjoyed. I would say this is by far the best whale watching in Merissa. We was the first boat to leave the harbour, the first to see the whales, which we had seen dive down and come back up about 3-4 time before any other boat had even found them, but the time the other boats came they was so many all trying to get a glimpse it was quite unreal watching them all racing about. Our crew was most respectful of the whales and didn't bother chasing them with all the other boats as the whales get scared. Also seen dolphin's and turtles, team where very knowledgeable and food was spot on. Worth it!!!
