    Everything was gorgeous- the scenery was outstanding and we thoroughly enjoyed the commentator giving the history of the area along with the nature. I was a little disappointed that I missed the sighting of a puffin by 2 days!! It just means I will have to come back !!!

    September too late for this tour

    , Sep 2021
    We were too late (mid-September) in the season to see whales and puffins but the scenery was beautiful. We did see Stellar Sea Lions and where jelly fish were mating - the water was lighter green and bubbling. Staff was informative.
