Wonderful 2 hour cruise out of Newport. Boat was late in leaving, but there was plenty of room for everyone onboard to enjoy the outing. And yes, we did see whales and a large pod of dolphins!

We had a great time! We were very lucky to see two Blue Whales and were close enough to get pictures of the whales. It was very exciting!
