4.5 stars -- Lots of wildlife, nice host, but a little light on information

We went out with Tad who was, overall, very good. We had a beautiful day, and there were 4 people on the boat. Tad was very responsive to what we'd like to see. We went out to a rocky island where there were a few otters, a few harbor seals who poked their heads up, bald eagles, and some other birds. Then we went out to where some other boats seemed to have found some whales, and we did see (pretty close) a whale's back and tail. Tad told some interesting stories about the kelp growth and how the otters are indirectly helping the overall environment. He also was nice enough to email us some pictures. Our only area for improvement would be to tell us a little bit more about the wildlife in the area (kinds of whales, why certain birds/animals were in the area and whether they were there year-round, etc.).
