Nice boat trip , yet quite expensive if you don’t see any whales. 😌

Did a three hour tour today where you could watch dolphins. Unfortunately, whales did not show up. The crew was friendly and kind. I would love that they fished the garbage out of the ocean so that dolphins or fish wouldn't get tangled up. Also circled "Ilha viha Vila franca de compo", although this was not in the description. Great trip. Simply recommend.
