The whale watching with Aarron, Libby and Captain John was amazing! they found a ton of whales and we got to see the spectacle of a parent and baby humpback both breaching, and playing around.
We had enough time to see the glacier and walk to the Nuggett Falls and then had a superb whale watching experience with great sightings of humpbacks and orcas.

We then transitioned to whale watching with Brigid and Captain Tom! Captain Tom was an absolute sweetheart and Brigid had a vast knowledge base about whales and marine life which was exceptional!
The whale watch cruise was fantastic - at least 10 whales flipped us their tails - and the close up of the sea lions basking on a buoy made us all smile.
