Went out at noon for whale watching. Saw a number of them. Josh was on the microphone and was easy to hear and easy to understand. He eagerly answered any questions. Highly recommend. (Awesome comfortable boat, too)

Looks like from other reviews that the day activities are great, however, we specifically did the New Year's Eve cruise, and it was not like imagined from the website. Ship doesn't allow for mingling, 3 drinks max for anyone (couldn't purchase afterward), and it's a...More
