Spot Those Whales!
Our fast maneuverable boats can swiftly move from place to place and so cover a wide area, which of course increases the likelihood of spotting whales. So we´d be delighted to have you come aboard and take the tour with us. We sail daily and you can choose trips from 10:00 in the morning to 21:30 at night. Each trip takes about 1 and a 1/2 hour.
