Excellent – A photographer's dream come true - bring your camera, you won't be disappointed! The wildlife was abundant and easily photographed. Plenty of seabirds, otters, sea lions and more bald eagles and whales than I could count. Captain Neil is a great host and guide, from the welcoming pot of hot coffee to the on-going narrative about the wildlife and sea life to adjusting plans on-the-fly based on where the wildlife could be seen. I will be coming back and I am recommending Captain Neil and the Catdaddy to friends and family.

I was hoping to see at least 1 humpback whale and we ending up seeing over 10 in multiple areas. Everything else was an added bonus. We saw lots of birds (cormorants, puffins, seagulls, bald eagles, murres, etc.) and sea otters. Neil was a wonderful guide and gave us lots of information on animals we saw and about the city of Sitka.

Captain Neil and Miss Lione, naturalist and photographer we're amazing! Very friendly, and knowledgeable about the area, animals, and the environment. We saw everything from harbor seals, otters, packs of whales, and eagles. The "Catdaddy" boat is perfect for smaller groups. If you're looking to get away from the overcrowded tour boats this is PERFECT! Equipped with a bathroom and plenty of sitting areas inside and out. Warm coffee, tea, and hot chocolate were available, as well as binoculars to use for everyone. We all had such an amazing time and would love to do the tour again the next time we are in Sitka.
