Deep water cetaceans are also possible like Cuvier’s Beaked Whale, Risso’s Dolphin, and Pilot Whale with Fin, Humpback, and Minke Whales more likely in a bit shallower water.

This trip is approximately 24-hours. Capacity is limited. Reservations are required. There is a 7-day cancellation policy. Non-refundable, non-transferable.

Boarding begins at 7:00pm on Sunday evening, June 2.  Passengers will board in the order in which their booking was received.
