We thought that Peter did an excellent job introducing us to whale spotting, watching and took time to explain whale habits, their environment and put us in good positions to take photos. We enjoyed the explanations around earthquakes and road restoration works and it was quite spectacular to land & stop for a very cold but spectacular photo on the top of Mt Fyfe. I wonder if pilots or ground crew have any particular tips to offer relating to photographing with telephoto lenses. Maybe high shutter speeds, Tv, auto ISO. The photos we took where good and reasonably in close but not as sharp as I hoped for. Pretty tricky with moving chopper, sea and whale I guess. Overall 10 out of 10. Thank you. Very memorable!
We got an awesome and friendly driver, our guide, Scott, for informative commentary on the way to whale watching activity. Great thanks to Scott for takiing there. Also there was a professional, informative, helpful and friendly team on board. The team tried their best to help tracing the whales and eventually the world’s largest whales, Blue Whales were viewed. Great thanks to the team for making our trip fantastic and unforgettable!
The eater was rough heading out to view whales. Recommend motion sickness medication 1 hour before departure. Eat light The rough seas only for 20 - 30 min of trip Sit in Back of boat as well. Loved the sightings Dolphins were so entertaining. 5 stars
