Weather dependent, minimum number of fares required for flights to depart. Please call us 24 hours prior to reconfirm your booking and departure time. This allows time for flight adjustments should the weather be looking unfavorable. We see whales 97% of the time. Occasionally, despite our very best efforts and flight planning, you may not see a whale. This is rare and unfortunate but can happen. In the unlikely event that you do not see a whale, no refund will be offered.
