Maureen, thanks. We did see some whales, no breaching though. Did not go on a whale watching tour, did the sunset cruise which was great. I used the 70-200 + 2x TC and got some flukes on the cruise. We scheduled our trip on being a good time to take leave, not on what we could see. We will definitely be going back, most likely to other islands to see the difference. Your whale shots are something to aspire to.
