Great time to watch whales

Great time of the year to go whale watching. A beautiful sunny day with no wind. Easy beach boarding. We saw plenty. We saw them breaching, they followed us and kept surfacing near us for ages. We also saw turtles and dolphins. 😊

We had a great time. The tour was well organised and everything went to plan. More importantly, we saw plenty of whales. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and made sure we were looked after throughout.
