This tour far exceeded my expectations. I was hoping to catch a glimpse of some whales, but about an hour in we came upon a small pod and got to watch them for about an hour. Our guide stayed on the upper deck with us and explained the behaviors they were exhibiting. She was extremely knowledgeable and familiar with this particular group of whales. We also saw sea lions and a bald eagle. There was an enclosed cabin in case of inclement weather which looked warm and inviting.
