Looooovvvvvveeeeee It!!!

Whales R Best

I absolutely love this game! It's very realistic and fun to see them where they would live in the wild. I love seeing them breach and dive. The animations are great and they look like the real thing. My only suggestion is to add more species.

Real Amazing Whales


I looooooove this app so much! The whales are so realistic and detailed! Amazing for all ages of dolphin lovers! The variations of dolphins and places to go really help learn about species and where to find them! Amazing!

Fun app for whale lovers!


Now I can whale watch even when I'm not out on the boat! Fun app! Crashes on my iPhone but no issues using it on my iPad. Definitely a fun way to pass the time.
