Be Whale Aware
Please understand that when we view the whales and dolphins in their natural environment we are guests in their home and so we must follow a strict set of viewing guidelines in order to respect their natural life processes. Yes the whales do sometimes get close due to their inquisitive behavior, but we are dealing with wild animals so we cannot guarantee behaviors, only that we will be able to enjoy the beauty the whales and dolphins choose to share with us
