Customer Review:

We were very fortunate in just showing up and getting on the next excursion. Apparently there are two different boats; a research vessel and a zodiac. We were on the research vessel. Immediately, I felt welcomed and at ease. The two research students were studying the pilot whale and comparing it to prior collected data.
