A super fun sail with a great 2 person crew who were informative but also left us to enjoy the sail. Bring warm clothes. Sit at the back of the boat for a smoother sail. Enjoy the free drinks.

The tour guides are what makes the tour just that much better we had Daniel and let me tell you he helped protect me from wasps (that stung me) and had an amazing mirror trick too !

we saw whales twice :) and nice sunset need to get a good spot to see them, because as soon as the whales or dolphins shows all crowd goes to that side :)

Beautiful experience. The team took the best care of us and explained everything thoroughly. I highly recommend the tour.
