Saturday June 27, 2009 / 5:00pmEvening Whale & Dolphin Watching
How was your experience?
The boat was nicer than I expected it to be. White tables with seating on top and plenty of deck space on the sides. I was glad they had a snack bar and cocktails! The boat moved at a nice pace and it didn't take long to find some common dolphins. We found at least two or three whales which surfaced several times and got oohs and aahs from the crowd. Another whale watching boat was competing with us for the best viewing position, and didn't want to give the whales the space necessary from them to surface comfortable. I gained respect for our crew due to their consideration, respect, and knowledge of the animals. I enjoyed their commentary that was broadcast over a P.A. system. The captain was patient and allowed some extra time for us to get one extra viewing of the whales as they surfaced for air. Then he stopped by a buoy with sea lions on it. Great photo opportunities and very relaxing to experience the sea breeze, sun, and fresh air!
