We were given free drink tickets each - however it is for a "punch" that is pre-made. So, we paid for a glass of wine.

only sweet snacks (candy bars) on board so eat before. There are plenty of restaurants in the area - but pricey. We ate before we went and just had a drink before we boarded the boat.

A delightful day for all ages. Watched a mother and calf that we came across three different times - and very close to boat. Good info from capt and lots of willingness from weekend volunteer.

The captain was very sincere and friendly. He seemed to have a passion for the ocean and was very knowledgeable. We came back to the dock a little late because he stuck around waiting for a blue whale to come up. We had 2 sightings!
