No whale spotted but they have re-cruise voucher which is a sign of good customer experience

No whale spotted but they have re-cruise voucher which is a sign of good customer experience . Weather was pretty good plus the viewing scenery was good. The experience was best but unfortunately we weren't able to see any of the wildlife which was a disappointment
