    It was raining and cruises were being cancelled due to the high waves and Captain Laura was great at keeping all of us entertained and not getting to 🤢. We saw some great scenery even with the shorter safer tour.

    Beautiful scenery and informative crew. I recommend this cruise. We were hoping to see whales but we booked our cruise outside of the whale season. So if you want to see whales, make sure to book your cruise during the correct season to improve your chances.

    Wish I could give 0 stars. On the day of our trip there was zero visibility with rain and windy whether. Tour was still operated. We never made it to the glacier as advertised in description. Moreover we were asked to share a small table with other couple. This was total waste of money. I would definitely spend money somewhere else. The only good thing was that staff was friendly.

    This is a really awesome cruise with very knowledgeable staff. We got to see puffins, sea lions, sea otters and a variety or birds and jelly fish. Also Bear glacier view was good. Only regret is we could not get to see any whales due to the season.

    It was rainy but the trip was incredible. The rain probably brought out a lot of the sea animals. And the crew was fantastic. It was very well organized and I would recommend it.
