    We are expecting a great experience, yet we are so unlucky that we couldn’t see any signs of whale! They gave us vouchers to claim back another round within the whale watching season, too bad that we are leaving, couldn’t arrange another one, suggested to do it earlier during the trip, so if unlucky like us, u still can claim it back! Sea is rough, for those who don’t get used to it, please take pills beforehand and avoid having too much food before the activity! Captain brought us to the cliff to see some sea lions as a little compensation! Another thing is the confirmation from the travel agent is quite misleading, at the beginning, we thought we are in a tour group, at the end we approached the captain cook counter and claim the ticket by ourselves

    The trip was cancelled for consecutive two days without notice to me. The ship company said they have informed KLOOK in advance. Do u know it now? Will you contact me for refund?

    Very nice and the first experience. We love this trip and we were able to watch two to three whales enjoying in the sea. Must watch for all.

    Saw a calf and whales breaching. Was a good experience except ride was bumpy. Sea sick pills should be used by those not used to open seas.
