Beautiful scenery. Nice clean new boats. The tour guide was well informed, polite and always had safety in mind.
Beautiful day to be on the water. Guide was very helpful and went out of his way to ensure we understood everything (scenery and wildlife) we were exposed to. Highly recommended.
WoW what a great excursion. The zodiac boats were a blast; my husband and our group loved being able to drive these boats! We had great weather (June 20, 2013), saw lots of wildlife (whale, seals, eagles). The tour guide Sean was very personable and informative. I would highly recommend this adventure.
The weather was phenom. About 70 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. The trip is 360 for two people which quite honestly is too high for a zodiac boat. It was beautiful and there were salmon jumping, eagles flying and the scenery is special. Our guide was a hoot and we had fun. It was the best of the tours but part of that was the WEATHER.
Whales were sooooo close! It was amazing to see them and to be out on the open water in such a small boat. The insulated suits that were provided were very necessary and did the job well, we stayed dry and warm. I don't think this is a great trip for folks who don't have boat driving experience. We went very fast on the water and an inexperienced driver made everyone else in the other boats very nervous. Also, it took waaay too much time to get us outfitted into our suits and our allotted boat time was wasted on this task. The guides were very helpful and eager to please. It wasn't as fabulous as we had hoped, but it certainly was exciting and beautiful.
Pick-up arrangements need improving. We lost all of an hour before being picked up as our mobiles did not work in North America. An e-mail address would have solved the problem, as it did for our Skagway trip.
