The tour will last 2 - 2 1/2 hrs. We'd sail until we found whales and then stay there watching them. Finally we'd go back to the coast. Our group was mostly about locals. Just Shawn and 2 children were foreigners. The mother of the 2 children said it would be a good idea if we introduce ourselves, so the time would go faster, mmm, good idea! Well, it was my turn and I said where I was from and that I was enjoying Ecuador so far, and all the Ecuadorians were so glad about what I just said, hehehe.
The boat was going fast but not that much, nevertheless the passengers of the left side got completely wet. And guess where I was sitting, hahaha. But I wouldn't complain at all, specially after seeing a 6 months all baby girl. The children were laughing and playing. Just one man got sick. So smart I took the medication just in case, hahaha. We were starting to get impatient, since we didn't see any whale and time was running. I remembered Judith assured us we'd watch whales, but Carmen said we'd watch them if we were lucky, mmm.
Suddenly one of the ladies screamed: "whale!" Everyone got excited and Carmen asked us not to run where the whale was, just stay in our places otherwise the boat would loose balance.
We staid there for almost 45min, watching whales and having a snack, hehehe. Then we started to go back to the coast. It was around 5 when we left and arrived at 5 something. This was a cool experience, highly recommended. We landed, gave back our lifevests and were ready to enjoy another beautiful sunset in Puerto Lopez :)
