Seat yourself in a unique front row position for spotting whales and exploring pristine marine environments at a pace all your own. There’s something about the air up here. It’s a crispness, a mist laden with salty sea-spray. It’s, unmistakably, a departure from urban living. Morning mist rolls off the ocean and you’re surrounded, not by skyscrapers or urban skylines, but by unfettered, untamed wilderness.
