3 star rating: Worth doing July 2017

Pick up was friendly and on time at hotel. Communication prior to the trip was slow and difficult because we has to go through viator and wait for them to get back to them and get back to us

The waiting at the harbour and in the harbour was long. No snacks or Beverages while waiting. We paid more to get a bigger boat to avoid sea sickness the boat was too small and many were sea sick including me. The water was fridges and the wetsuit had holes. The sea lions stayed far from us not coming close to the group at all. I had read that they would swim through your legs and be more playful. Instead we were warne of the potential danger. The smell was gag worthy and made the trip that much more unpleasant. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Th it was winter so that might account for the less friendly sea lions which would call for a cheaper rate. Another concern was booking through viator I think we paid more than those from other hotels
