    The crew was friendly and informative. We learned a lot of interesting facts about the whales. We were treated to a performance from a baby Whale. It was spectacular.

    This excursion was one of the best on our cruise in Alaska. The naturalists were very knowledgeable and easy to approach with questions. The boat was very comfortable and had lots of room for watching whales, and we saw lots! One whale even breached right next to our boat! The

    It was an ok tour. Saw a couple whales, some porpoises and Sea Lions. Naturalist was more interested in getting pictures than helping guests. Wouldn’t do it again.
