The essence of this Tour is to observe marine life and enjoy beautiful moments when you can calmly contemplate whales and dolphins while playing, jumping and enjoying their natural habitat. There is no "typical day" in this adventure. We usually let the whales and dolphins "take over" the itinerary.
