Excellent prime rib and salmon dinner with nice sides. Park ranger narration thorough and professional. We had the awesome experience of finding a humpback whale lunge feeding, pushing up out of the water near the beginning of the trip. He stayed with us for a while. Not that interested in the birds, rookery or sea lions but some people may... More

Staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable! We saw a variety of wildlife! We were lucky enough to see a humpback whale breech twice! We saw seals, Puffins, an otter, eagles, a mountain goat, and 4 humpback whales! The 3 hour length was perfect! Would love to do another tour with this company!

They had a great attitude and were very accommodating. The crew were chatting with us and other guests throughout the 7.5 hr trip. The park ranger, Jim, was a great narrator and very approachable. Capt. Ian was always looking for ways for us to spot more wildlife and get up close to the birds. The crew, Julie, Jacob, and Colton... More

It even laid on one side and waved!!! Great trip!!! I know they have no control over the whale but overall the trip was great and they... More

We took this tour with our family of 7 adults & 3 children. It surpassed our expectations. The crew were friendly and helpful, the captain even locating a bubbling pod of humpback whales (a bit off course) that we enjoyed seeing at least 3 appearances. The other sea life, orcas, puffins, otters, other sea birds, etc. were also interesting but... More

We took this tour on the Glacier Express. Had a wonderful time. The boat captain, Nicole, was great at spotting wildlife & navigating for perfect views. This is the only cruise line with a National Park Ranger aboard. Our ranger, CJ, was an excellent educator & made every effort to speak with passengers. She was extremely informative. All of the...

It was easy to find and they were flexible enough to follow what was happening in the Bay. Thus it was a very good and varied experience. Pleasant trip.
