Getting bounced around to kingdom come!! ;-(

Posted on: 2020/02/28

Well, we were very excited to go on this tour. We have gone out in Alaska on whale tours and had a blast. First of all we noticed that the "safety" protocols were not very obvious. There were 12 guests on board and we noticed ONE life jacket. You basically scream across the water for over an hour, sitting on the edge of the raft and got bounced to kingdom come. We did see a mama and baby whale, which was nice. But, we both got sick on the boat. The staff was nice, but not overly accommodating with our throwing up and getting sick.

Aloha, I'm sorry you get seasick, when on a whale watch the raft does sit and bob around for a good hour while looking at whales. Upon boarding there is a short briefing on where to put your foot and where the life vests are, the one up front is just out for demonstration and looks. Each boat has 18 adult and 4 child life jackets and the area is labeled above the hatch. The raft is an adventure that can be bumpy but since 10 other guest were on board for a three hour tour our hands are tied with cutting the trip short to accommodate seasick passengers. There is not much in our control except hoping people take seasick precautions before our boarding a boat. We do have ginger ale on board to help those tummies rumbles. Hope we can see you again and change your mind about our rafting adventure.
