Pour avoir le maximum de confort, nous n’embarquons jamais plus de 6 passengers, alors que le bateau est homologué pour 10 passengers. Nous avons choisi un bateau large, avec un coque “gull wings”, le rendant très stable sur l’eau. Ceci permet de se déplacer facilement dans le bateau pour observer les baleines de tous les côtés. Cela permet également de prendre des photos dans les meilleures conditions, et de pouvoir tous se mettre à l’abri de la pluie sous le petit toit du bateau, et ainsi préserver le matériel de prise de vues.
