Whale of a time

The educational session before departure was very valuable in learning about the habitats of Whales. The Whale watching excursion was wonderful. We certainly saw quite a few whales. For some strange reasons, simple sandwich always taste better on the water. Nice treat. The day we sailed the water was a bumpy- several of us got nauseous. The team was well prepared for this, with small bites of ginger.

To say it was outstanding would be an understatement !! Meg and the captain were !! We were so fortunate to see these beautiful Humpback whales, during birthing and mating season in the warm waters of Bandaras Bay Puerto Vallarta !!! AMAZING
