Excellent activity, we were able to see what was announced, only B mol, there must have been explanations in French which we did not have while on the bridge we were a good 20 of French.

We saw a sea turtle and some whales. We did a small stop to swim near the end of the voyage. Crew was very knowledgeable and eager to tell us about the animals. Really friendly
