This was a phenomenal experience! The crew and staff were friendly and knowledgeable of the various habitats. This whale-watching trip was a family trip (8 of us) we took with my dad, his grandchildren, basically the entire family. Despite the length of the trip, we all had a blast! I HIGHLY recommend taking/bringing sea-sickness medication which is available over the counter (non-drowsy) at your local pharmacy. I normally don't get sea-sick but after a few hours I did, and the pills did the trick. On the boat, you could easily tell who took the pills and who didn't....those that did spent the day taking photos and enjoying the beautiful weather. Also don't forget SPF lotion regardless of the weather, layers of clothes (it gets cold despite the sunny weather), a beanie (for your head), and some food (sandwiches) because you'll get hungry. They do sell burgers/hot dogs and snacks on the boat. My niece and nephew ages 6 and 12 enjoyed the entire trip and were exhausted by the end. There is ample seating throughout the boat. We saw numerous whales, seals, dolphins, rare birds, etc.
