Great, but not well suited for disabled

This is a nice cruise, lots of whales were seen. The problem is if your with someone who has mobility issues and your stuck inside, you miss most of the action because the captain positions the ship so that the people out the front of the boat have the view of the whales. So I think they forget there are people inside that are missing out. Even if you try to get out the front, if they're already at capacity out the front they won't let you, and since no one out the front wants to come back in you basically miss out.

Great family outing

We were lucky enough to see two humpbacks as they migrated up the coast. The crew were terrific involving us as they searched the horizon for any tell tale signs of whales. They provided plenty of information on humpbacks and the challenges the oceans are facing. It took a while to find the whales but once we did there wer plenty of photo opportunities. The captain always kept the required distance away but the whales occasionally surfaced closer to the boat whenever they wanted to. Windproof jackets and sunglasses are essential to allow you to sit outside and get the best views from the deck.
