Doing the Whale Watching

Dont be scared to go along with other tourist/travellers, this will minimize the cost of renting a whole boat with a capacity of 7 guests. Here is a pic of the crew and other foreigners we met in the boat.

Try out your spotting skills

Its really amazing how big the fish is! Try to take the spot of the spotter at the pole of the boat, you can really see a cloud like shadow in the water, yes the shadow is that big for you to think its a cloud! =)
