We did see a whale, the same whale a few times, from a distance, as our converted fishing boat was too slow to keep up with the ribs, that rushed to the sight of the whale, which then seemed to take a few deep breaths and dive again as soon as possible, before becoming too traumatised by aforementioned ribs! We have been on whale watching trips before and all of the boats took great care to remain behind the whale and out of it's sight so as not to upset it. Here it was a mad dash to the whale by all, and the poor whale understasndably dived as soon as it possibly could.

Our tour was canceled due to very bad weather extremely windy and rainy. Luckily, it was the last tour in that day and we got the first morning next day tour instead. The weather on the morning was great. Blue sky.
As promised, we saw whales. I took dozens of photos of them. Great experience.

It was really amazing! We saw humpback, minke and porpoise wales!
Unfortunately at this time the sea was rough so passengers should be seaworthy.
The crew were very freindly and report us many things about the wales.
