How was your experience?
The boat ride was delightful. Seagulls entertained us at the foot of the boat as we searched for the vanished whales. I was happy to have picked up a sandwich and water before boarding and used this down time to chat with other guests, finish my lunch, and enjoy the scenery. About an hour into the trip we spotted dolphins (I counted about a dozen but it could have been double that) and apparently there was a whale tucked in amongst them. I couldn't see it. We were told that the dolphins were some rare species. The sound quality of the speakers left a lot to be desired so I'm not exactly sure what was going on hence the four stars instead of five. I will go again. Allow plenty of time for traffic, finding the parking garage (turn south on Adams) and dress in layers.
