We had an amazing whale watching flight with David. We saw about 12 southern right whales with their calves, ~80 dolphins, loads of seals and 2 sharks. David is fun & the flight is just stunning (not just the animals also the landscape)!

This was an incredible experience we will never forget. Tons of fun was had and a most spectacular view of the whales. I felt like I was in an episode of natural geographic flying over the whales and seeing them interact. Definitely a must-do!
