Whale Watching with an Underwater Viewing PodFlag review
Captain Dave is a dedicated whale and dolphin researcher who is routinely interviewed on local and national news. He is knowledgeable and the underwater viewing pod is a novel way to see whales and dolphins in their natural environment. The brownies on the ride back in cap off a memorable whale watching trip.
Tips for Families
The tours take place on a catamaran and there isn't much room for kids to stretch their legs. This trip is better with children that can sit for 2-3 hours at a time. Bring a snack, water, sunscreen and a jacket as it's always colder on the water than at the dock.
