  • We set sail early, the most recent from the harbor. I was alarmed, but apparently it is their thing, as in the end the whales were seen several and they were all the closest to our ship, almost back!))) In the beginning everyone was treated to tea and coffee, with buns and given a bottle of water! "Respect, because we didn't have breakfast! Then a little swaying on the waves (all were life jackets), we got a second snack already with sandwiches and milk/juice - it is important, as the seasickness was already creeping up ... As a result, when we swam up to the whales, were able to take a photo and the husband continued and enjoyed the journey, and I enjoyed the bottom of the package... The most impressive thing is. that employee...

  • Seem to respect the animals. Will stay a reasonable distance from them and then turn the engine off as not to disturb/stress them out. Unlike many other boats who just chase full speed after the whales.
  • Very nice and pleasant experience. We have been told to meet at 6:30 AM cause at 7 Am the ship will be leaving from the harbour - exactly what happened. We actually have left even a bit earlier. Also the ship was not full, so we could move and switch places in order to get best views. We have managed to see 1 turtle (which actually got hidden very fast) and at least 7 whales (or maybe 1 or 2 multiple times). In 2 of the situations we were really close, but not too close to hurt them (like other boats were too close in similar situations). During all this time, we've been offered water, cakes, sandwiches and fruits. The team was also nice to us, so I do recommend going out with the Horizon team.
