On board Blue Dolphin you are well away from the large noisy crowd usually associated with whale watch encounters. Survey for the boat is 30 passengers but we limit numbers to 20 for passenger comfort. By limiting the number of passengers it allows for you to have a more personal relationship with the whales, dolphins and the crew, which is necessary for a true eco-tourism experience.
Blue Dolphin cruises at approximately 7 – 8 knots motoring – greater with wind speed.
