Good attention from Felipe, our tour guide and the Captain, the boat was clean and of a good size, there is an accumulation of boats near the Arch that although it does not depend on this service, it remains to have a better time of see and enjoy the area. The search for whales was entertaining and we were lucky, since we managed to see several groups of whales. Finally, the price vs. value of the activity was considered high.

Small group. Saw several Mama whales with their babies. One of the babies came pretty close but Mama gently guided it away. Hearing the underwater sounds from the whales was awesome. Learned that each year the song got longer.
