Not everyone in my family loves the sea. “Eat all of your corn flakes,” says my husband to our 12-year-old at breakfast before we head off to board our Zodiac, “so you’ll have something to throw up.”

But, this trip, no worries. We have blue skies and relatively smooth seas and see dolphins and one hump-backed whale with Gentle Giants!
