  • Very nice tour! Totally worth it! The guide and the captain were very kind and profissional! We had a wonderful time and saw at least 15 whales!  more »
  • We did the excursion with the larger boat (not the dinghy) because some of us feared seasickness, but in fact we were very lucky and the sea was very quiet when we did the excursion. They provide very padded tuton, it's hot there but then you feel you need it. It is also possible to climb to the top to see the whales better. We saw mainly two species: minke whale and blue whale. The first one is smaller and when it sinks it shows the tail. The second, rarer, is much larger but does not show the tail. However the hike was beautiful (about 66 euros each)
