IMG_4863Yes, the kids will absolutely love it, but so will the grown-ups. On board the Mahi Mahi, Whales in Paradise’s 69 passenger-capacity catamaran, you’ll get 360 degree views, walk around decks, and a unique water-level viewing platform and unobstructed viewing. The entertaining and informative crew provide the closest whale encounters possible to a deliberately limited number of passengers – ensuring safety for the whales and watchers alike!
