AMAZING experience! We had a private tour with our family of 6 (grandmother, mom, dad, 13 year old, 6 year old, 4 year old.) We got SO close to the whales and got some amazing photos and videos. Our guide and driver were so knowledgeable, friendly, and made our experience so memorable! Our youngest 2 enjoyed the first 2/3, but at their age, they started getting restless. I should have known that and expected it. However, the driver and guide were great with keeping them entertained. If we were to do it again, I would probably book something else for the younger ones. But the remaining 4 of us LOVED it! and would definitely do it again!!!!

The private charter was definitely the way to go! Of all of the excursions we took on our 7 day cruise, this was by far my favorite. We went in June and it was rainy and cold. Would definitely suggest bringing a poncho just in case. Saying that, there is still a large, enclosed cabin to warm you up when needed.
