Well, they are awesome! Mid Jan to mid March is peak season, so now is a great time to book. If you don't have the Groupon or Living Social deal ask about matching price when you call in.

I don't have any idea. However, I was on a dive just today and we saw several whales breaching as well as a bunch of dolphins. These guys are great.
