We have seen some dolphins and being able to see the cliffs was very nice. Our Capitan Ragnar was also very nice to us. Thank you for the trip

The tour lasted about three hours, was led by a Marine Biologist who identified all kinds of critters along the way. The guide told us what bit of land we were looking at, including some features of the area.The boat had many vantage points from two decks, with the lower deck being protected from weather. There were both seated and standing options. Friendly crew, warm coffee served. We saw many types of birds, and a couple of humpback whales. I highly recommend this tour if you have a few hours of time to spend in the area. If you do go on this tour, bring layers of warm clothing and even rain gear, as it is colder over the water and you may encounter rain and/or sea spray.

The tour was excellent, they had a marine biologist who gave a lot of information that was appropriate for the tour. The boat was comfortable, lots of places to sit and many places to have a good view of the whales. The crew did a very good job.

Wonderful trip into the fjord. It was like the whales were programmed. Three swimming side by side alongside boat with another breaching in the distance. Ragnar and his crew were marvelous in spite of the inclement weather. But like Florida, if you don't like the weather, wait a few minutes, it will change and mostly for the good. Marvelous Trip.
